Posted:~*~ 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 arrive in Oz on 18th Sept in time for MJC then MAYBE going skiing/snowboarding with Petey and then... well, whenever I get the bus to adelaide. When do YOU think it's best to arrive? 4th Oct? Or is there a reason to come to Adelaide earlier?



mmmm id say you should come a few days earlier, you should drag some melbournites along with you *nods* we have a really big living room which is currently just going to have a teeny tiny sureau in it .... im sure we can fit atleast another 12-15 ppl in there ..... well if u don't mind it being a little bit cozy ... ok well maybe more like 3-4 in a comfortable fashion smile

both Josh and Bill forgot to write on my blanket at uber spank methinks it maybe full after CG eek biggrin


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Hmm

$20 for CG ticket, $300 for airfares, $500 for sleeping bag.

rolleyes

Probably cheaper to stay in a motel and take a cab out each day!



Good point though: does anyone have a spare subzero sleeping bag I could borrow? I have a thermarest but my sleeping bag is basic. I live in Qld and have absolutely no use to own a hardcore one.

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

I just thought you were single because they'd be under such scrutiny from the rest of us to make sure they were good enough we might make them cry tongue
