~*~ COMMON GROUND 2007 TEASER ~*~



!!!!!!!!!*********COMMON GROUND SITE IS UPDATED*********!!!!!!!!!!!!

www.common-ground.net

we will be updating it progressively as we confirm / think of stuff closer to the date.



------------------



Greetings to all you fine, dandy, spangley and sparkly people!!



Just putting the word out..

Common Ground is an Annual object manipulation and lifestyle meeting held from Friday the 5th of October to Monday the 8th of October. It's aimed specifically at people who want to relax, have fun, share and learn in a positive and supportive environment.



Set in the picturesque Adelaide Hills, the location has ample room for camping, workshops and more.



Mainly focussing on (but by no means limited to) Twirling, Dance, Music and Circus related skills. Workshops cover a very wide range of different interests and skill levels. From complete novice to professional performer, we think we have something for you.

Core to the concept is participation. The event is created by those who attend sharing their skills and experiences with others - to borrow a phrase thrown around at Burning Man:



"No Spectators, only Participants."



Although, if doing every workshop isnt you style - just chill out and contribute to the relaxed, happy atmosphere.



Confirmed Dates:



Friday 5th October

Saturday 6th October

Sunday 7th October

Monday 8th October



The dates are a week later this year giving the crew time to be completely set up and running by the time people arrive Friday morning.



Friday arrive anytime, gates will be open at 8am. Workshops start in the afternoon.



Saturday **Show**



Sunday TBA



Monday workshops and offsite by after lunch.



We have already had some reservations on workshops these include:



Yoga

Drumming

Learn how to DJ

Yogaeria



TICKETS Limited to 150!! And yes they will sell out!



Early bird - $30 booking before August 31st

Just missed the worm - $40 September 1st October 4th

Missed the boat - $50 on the door if there are any remaining - there weren't last year



Please email if you would like an EB ticket go on be the first you know you want too!



IDEAS: for workshops and contributions most welcome.



As in 2005 and 2006 there will always be smiles, fun, madness, music, dancing and laughing.



Stay tuned for future updates.



Cheers,

Kate and the Common Ground Crew

I was actually supposed to come down on Tuesday, but had a couple deadlines to meet. Now I am temporarily to poor to get another flight so I'm afraid I'm gonna miss out this year frown

If anyone still needs a flight back up to Bris-vegas, PM me, I've still got one booked on the 11th.

PS
kids, never ever become self-employed!

Contact without dance is like sex without wiggling.
A) it does feel as good
B) it does not look as good on film

That was indeed a great weekend! We're still partying, sleeping etc at Ben's...so not quite at work yet! I agree indeed, what a lovely weekend! My only sad is I left my super favorite long red lightweight (wool and possum fur) cardigan onsite..it would have been round the chill area when we were cleaning up this morn. It says Possum on the label. So if anyone knows its whereabouts, can you send it home! Thanks!

I'm home now.



Now when I say home I mean nowhere near my home, home country or hemisphere and currently sitting in Ben-ja-men's house in awaiting his slapdash stirfry which has inexplicably turned into a proper gourmet job. Got a bit of heatstroke sitting in his back garden resulting in me vomitting the entire contents of my stomach.



Yes home.... tongue



CG was fantastic!!! biggrin biggrin biggrin DEFINITELY worth the small journey there! Everything and everyone was lovely.



Yes, it was cold at night but that's just me being a whiny Brit.



Special Thanks to:



- Josh and Kate for putting it on and saving me a ticket hug

- Ash for getting me there see you back in Melb hug

- All the ladies for letting me drool over their fellas tongue

- Chicken - you know what hug

- Brett and his nipples for the tigerbalm. hug

- Flynt for hugs and bosom pillows. hug



P.S. Anyone found Gabe's cardigan?



P.S.S. 'Child'
