Posted:Thank you from the deepest warmest parts of my heart to all who were involved with organising uberoz, especially of course Gabe.

Special thanks also to Pyroptix, Kyle, Brad and Steve for taking the time to work with young george outside of workshops.

The warm inner glow i normally have is a raging fire right now, I am so proud of the seven students of mine who attended especially considering the longest any of them had been twirling was 16 weeks and i know they must have been nervous. They had the most amazing experience as did i. Every one of us has taken something special away from the event and made so many new friends. Their confidence levels have soared already, Im sure we will be all swapping the things we have learnt for months to come, and are all already sweating on the next one.

Thanks again to all who were there, it really was like one huge happy family as cliched as that may be.

Cheers Glow Monkey. Glen

Posted:Wow!!
What more can I say?.

Except..
If I had been saving every spare penny to go to an event where I was going to work my butt off for 2 days and be totally knackered at the end of each day and I walked into the chill out area and there were 5 kids there , I would have been eek you are KIDDING me !!!!eek. But you know what?. That reaction was TOTALLY opposite to the reception that was received by myself and my family..

2UberOz was the first place that we have not had to worry about where our children were or who they were with.Its as though they had 110 new Aunts and UnclesAwesome!! hug

Glen was totally correct. The kids were very nervous as to what people would think of their newly learned skills. When they spin around where we live they have no one to pick up on any mistakes that they make so every performance is fantastic and thats what I tell them every time they spin in front of a crowd, that no one else there can do it so they wont know if they make a mistake. I could hardly say that at Uber could I? ..lol

Every single one of you taught the kids something wether you knew it or not. Be it a trick or a skill or a move or just about life in general.

When you live in a rural area as we do , the art of conversation with strangers is often lost but this weekend you all showed my family that people are awesome..( even if a few of them look a bit umm. .ermm different)hehehe. At one point I was almost wishing it had been me that had stepped on the nail, with all the special attention that Jess got!!. .hehehe

We want to say a huuuge Thank You to all and everyone, and a massive Thank You to a selected few You know who you are , the people that we made special connections with and those that gave that extra little bit! I know that this weekend has changed our lives forever.

A Special Note:

Glen aka Glow Monkey.

We want to Thank You specially, as without you we would never have learned the ability to learn such an awe inspiring art. We would have never even known that UberOz exsisted and had the opportunity to meet such fantastic people. Glen we want to Thank You for not only teaching us but also for allowing us to learn beside you.


welcomeAlso if any of you guys are ever in the Brisbane areaget in touch and come and PLAY at our home!!!!! welcome


Cant wait Unil the next one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted:TriberOz!!! ubbtickled

an inspired suggestion for the name of a potential third event.

Along with 3UberOz (throoberoz) Uber3Oz (ooberthroz) (I kinda like Uber with a *superscript 3* = UberCube)



Oooh and Abbie,

Posted:Ooooh Gabe Jess' foot.......I had to take her to the doc today.. its pretty swollen. I kept telling her the worse thing that would happen would be a tetanus shot!

How wrong was I???...

Apparently if it isnt any better in 24 hrs she has to have it lanced!!!!!!!!!!!.... Might have to employ Bren with the Meteor to come catch her and tie her down I think.. As I doubt I will be even able to catch her!!

Posted:Awww. Poor girl - though we were pretty lucky that Jess' foot was the worst of the injuries!

Glen: Double, triple thanks for letting me run off with those bellydancing fire palm thingies for a day. I'm thinking of designing something (maybe experimenting attaching them differently to the hands). If I do come up with something, I'll be sure to let you know. Elsewise, when we meet up again I'll buy a set.

I quite like all the new UberOz names... If you placed a backwards superscript 3 facing the Uber it could be CuberOz biggrin

Posted:Well?

Do we get to watch the amputation or what? Does peroxide defeat the evil demons??



One of our esteemed but somewhat boyoish Uberteachers is now in hospital from not looking after a footwound (not acquired there) SO it does happen eh. Which is one reason we are so severe about people wearing shoes at WOodford. People call us 'fascist' when we chuck em offsite for having bare feet, but we KNOW that foot wounds are the most likely things to make people disfunctional in festival situation. That and falling in love. wink
