Posted:hey there, do you need any fire wood for the bonfire? Cause we can bring some if you do...
Morgan and I are going to bring a big ball of string and some random things and make art. If anyone wants to join in we could do a workshop... we do this kind a thing all the time, we have a mini teepee in our front yard that has confused all the neighbours... smile

Posted:If you want a momento of CG - remember to bring a T-shirt or something to screen print the CG logo onto! Even a piece of fabric safety pinned onto a favourite jacket (one of my persona favourite ways of using screen print stuff) looks funky in a punk / ferral kinda way. CG doesn't do merch - thanks to Gnor for DIY'ing it! smile

Posted:Thanks Hannah - I think there will probly be people interested in such things - I think there is someone running a macrame workshop too!

Fire wood would be good if its good wood, if its for the communal campfire - cuz we dont really want to use the pine we have on the campfire (smoky).

Misguided Oracle, there will be 20L of D60 available on Friday Saturday and Sunday nights (thats 60 litres of D60!) for usage in the 'safe fire spinning area' (we will have a designated fire spinning space, so designated safety conscious people can be in attendance and make sure things are safe).

Obviously - no fire spinning in the camping area, and no fire breathing AT ALL, ANYWHERE, at CG.

Way cool!
btw, I understand the ban on fire breathing. how about fire eating? if it's disallowed, i won't bother packing my skewers then.

thanks!

it's soooooo close now. so excited that i forgetting that i need to pack my bags!

Posted:its a big place.. even though there's no fire permitted in the camping area (im correct in saying this, yes?) theres plenty of space to wander off from the main crowds to suit your comfortability.. its a great crowd though, so you may well find yourself comfortable right with all the other spinners..

I do indeed look forward to this event... I leave for adelaide the day after tomorrow! After spending the night with relis I'll be down there nice and early that morning! grin

Look forward to meeting a bunch of you crazy kids... I'll be the one holding poi! tongue2

Posted:the fire circle ain't a small place.
Mother_Natures_Son, despite the casual atmosphere at CG we have to respect the limits on where we can set fire to equipment.
Getting a permit for any outdoor multi-day event in Australia is usually a big fat pain - let's do our part to not make it any harder yeah? you have glow equipment if you want to spin away from teh permitted fire zone. given the size of Sparkey's fire hoop last year, you'll get an idea of how much space u can have in the fire area smile

Posted:True, I have indeed got glow equip. I'll just use CG as a way to work on poi'ing around people.

I altered my handles on my fire poi... they were unusable double loops, now I've got single loops that I can actually use! grin grin grin
