Posted:I'm coming and I'll be bearing poi and sticks and firetwirley goodness for all! Woohoo. I can't wait. The tix are $95 if you get them before Jan 12 and $115 after. How good is that?! that includes 3 days of camping and workshops during the fest. Yay! Oh, I got really cheap flights with Virgin ($55 each way) from Melb to Launceston so that's prolly cheaper than driving, innit? biggrin
I'm a bit sad about missing Beastie Boys and Timo Maas at Good Vibrations but... Circus! 3 days of! Oh the fun...

Posted:Hmm.. anyone like to guess when the tickets are likely to get sold out? I'd like to go but until I get some money I don't think I can afford it..


How're other people getting there? I heard something about a bus, but do any lovely people have any car space..? smile
I'm lurking in Launceston at the moment so I'd hopefully still be around..

Posted:well tickets to the training sold out ages ago, but i'm fairly sure tickets to the public exhibitions will be sold on the gate like last time unless theres a huge rush (which i doubt)

the bus is for people going to the training( which i'm going to) but i'm not sure what they're doing for the public. ever tried hitchhiking? shrug

Posted:I bought my training tickets last year hahaha...... Ah the funs of having money at hand, now it appears to be completley void, but it works when it's there.

Either way, I will most deffinately be there so Blueberry, i would absolutely love to have a HoP meet up. I see your from Canberra, when are you getting down to Launceston?

The other thing I have to ask is that I will be arriving at Launceston airport on the 1st and the campsite doesn't take people untill the 2nd. Is there anyone here that could offer a bed for the night? I will thank you imensly and buy you a flower if anyone can.


Many Smiles,
David

Posted:Have a wonderful time. Sydney Juggling Convention was great, and there were a few people talking about heading on down to Tassie.

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

biggrin Yep, that was indeed me!!! And I would have won it too, if they hadn't have made me swap for the two diablos (one I could have managed wink ).



And you? I must admit, I probably met you but I haven't made the HoP connection. How would I recognise you?



Edit: Were you our yoyo representative? Or am I mistaken?
