Posted:good call on the moving of the feet... I dont think I am going to attemtpt to teach across the board skill level poi this year as I did last year. I might re-run my uber workshops cos they went pretty well... and I would class them to be in the intermediate leading to advanced (you'll be advanced after the workshop that is)

Posted:yeah toys like poi really benefit from a focus on skill levels - too many skill levels in one lesson often leads to everyone progressing at a skewed pace.

Fire Show Stuffs
On the topic of main fire show's layout, i really appreciate how there was space beside the stage for early performers to sit and watch the remainder of the spectacle easily. Personally I'd prefer to get on a little earlier myself if I contribute to the show so that i get a better chance of shooting decent footage...

yay for only a 3 week wait from today!

Posted:You'll be missed gabe frown

I was chatting to a melbournian yesterday who is driving over to cg, and has 2 car spots at the moment to adelaide, and one for the way back. If anyone from melbourne is looking for a lift, let me know so i can get you in contact with the driver.

not long to go now, exciting times grin

Oooh maybe! I've never been before! It all depends on dates because I think that period will be crazy at work.

I will stop hijacking this thread, look up the details and PM you if I decide! laugh3 x
