Posted:More! More photos!!

Thanks to all for making us Perth crew welcome!
I know next year to bring way more fire things and bring costumes for the shows.

I'd have to say the parts I enjoyed the most were the non-spinny moments of meeting randoms from HOP, watching dreadlock making, drumming workshops etc.

*hugs* to all.

Everyone should come to SpunOut!! You'll have massive fun! (and it means I see everyone more than once a year!)

Posted:Natasgi... might I ask what your real life alias is?

Though I may not remember your name because I'm bad with names... did we speak? I spoke to a few of the perth group... you weren't the one talking to me about fire eating wand construction up at the fire eating workshop... were you?

Posted:Yeah, that was the one I was thinking of, Gnor. Was wonderful to meet ALL of you... I'm afraid of naming all the people I enjoyed meeting lest I forget a few!!

I made some doubles, Jed, the towels didn't wrap up nicely and its a little ugly looking, but they're doubles and they work nicely.
