Posted:Hey Everyone!

well I thought I would start a thread for the upcoming CG.

All we have locked in for now is the date;

Friday to Monday, 2nd to the 5th October.

www.common-ground.net for info,



MMM CG goodness.

***UPDATE***

most of the tickets are now sold.

ALL TICKETS NOW SOLD

Please do not pass on ticketing info to people who have not bought tickets, if you put money in our account and have not confirmed with Kate, then we will send you back the money minus postage.

It looks like this coming CG09 will be the last big CG that Katinca and I organise for a while (perhaps someone else will take up the torch?) - cuz Katinca and I need a bit of time for travel and getting our land in order. However, we have a lot of very special ideas for this CG which will probably make it better than it's ever been before, so if you are still tossing up whether you want to come this year or not, you really should come.

Posted:Can I just ask - that anyone bringing large items to CG remember to take them home after CG? I dont want to end up with a situation where we have to arrange for a skip or something to get rid of a pile of unwanted furnies cuz no one wants them after the ice has melted.

cheers!

Posted:oh and also - I cant upload the yellow car blues vid, cuz work blocks it, and my stoopid satellite broadband doesn't seem to be capable of it.

sorry for getting your hopes up everyone. Perhaps we will play it in the cinema on the Friday night this year smile

People who can't make it this year for whatever reason could record messages to everyone at CG and we could play them and go, "Awwww, miss you too!"

Posted:Hey dudes - while Kate and I don't have any probs with people trading tickets between each other, please bear in mind, that you are not really buying a ticket its not quite as simple as that.

You are contributing your share of the costs of putting on CG - and that corresponds to having your name on our participants list. If you have put yourself on that list, and then decided not to go but give your place to someone else, that's cool. But if you do this without letting us know, then your friend could potentially end up with a very boring beginning to their CG experience, because their name will not be on our door list - so we will have to verify with you that you are ok with the transfer.

Long story short:

Tell Kate or myself if you are trading places with someone - and do it ASAP, cuz we wont be checking our email in the week of CG.
