Greetings and salutations

Ive just moved back to Australia after awhile away in Edinburgh with a new found passion for.. all things Firey,spinny,juggley and generally manipulatey!

As such i know diddley-squat about the Sydney Spinning 'scene', and im sorely missing playing under the sun ( errr fluroecent lights in Scotland ), and was wondering if..... anybody could help me a little? Ive had a goosey at the Sydney Fire Gatherings thread but was wondering if there is anything new or changed going on?

Well, and just to say hello to everybody in Australia too!

HAM.

Welcome back to Oz!, as you might have noticed on the Sydney thread, there is sometimes some discussion that scene is a little... dispersed? Not heaps of HoPpers either....
There are some great people there though. Eg no doubt Ciara will pop by here to say hello...from Circus Soc.. and Mark Douglass is an excellent contact. I have your email cos you registered for UberOz3 so I'll send you some contacts directly OK.
(Nice picture by the way)
Cheers
Gabe

Cheers Newgabe!

Thanks for the info, tis good to be back in sunny ( ahhh not quite as cold as Scotland ) Oz. Hmm yes i did see afew frightening comments about the Sydney scene being.... despersed as you put it. Alas im also confined my the oppressive shackles of work and cant make it to the earlier Circus Soc gatherings ( if they are indeed on Monday arvos at the Uni still?.) but hey im sure there will always be somebody up for a play in the park on the weekend !

Anybody interested ?... I went down to Bicentenial Park last Sunday but couldnt find anybody, has this moved along by chance?

Thanks again for the helloos and see you at UberOz3 !

hey! hello there... (thanks Dentrassi for telling me where that one was, couldn't find it)... newgabe, i sooo sad i can't come to the uberOz (i'm so short with money right now, less that a hundred bucks!!!) but well, i'm looking for work and i'm in Sydney, looking for spinners as well!

i'm in the CBD of sydney, so hyde park, and lee park are not so far. i've heard that spinners were gathering on sunday night on lee park, but can't say if it's true, haven't checked it out yet!

i would be happy to met up with some spinners hey! let me know! bye

Love

Hi there ReivaX !,

Ive been going over to Glebe Park ( Think its called Bicentenial Park too ) on Sunday afternoons recently.tis nice with the sunset and the harbour and all..... Or maybe we could meet at Hyde Park this Saterday arvo if thats closer to you? I can get a ferry into the city so is no problem.

What ya recon?

Thanks
