Posted:Summer Location: Queen Victoria gardens.



The aim is not for a solely firetwirling night, but a night whereby firetwirlers, jugglers, contact jugglers, diabolo etc can meet. So feel free to bring friends who may be interested.

Night starts at 6pm for all those who are keen to learn. Fire starts after dark 7.00 - 8ish till late!



So.... the location is Queen Victoria Gardens

St. Kilda Road opposite 'National Gallery of VIC' (Old Arts Gallery with spire)

The grassed area near the three raised palm trees. (Look out for the bronze statue hammer thrower)

With only a 5 minute walk over the princess bridge from Flinders Street station.

Here's the map

*WINTER LOCATION*

Under the Princess bridge (Southbank side). Where the Southbank Sundey market happens.

Geez, I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

Posted:Awesome, I'm looking forward to putting names to faces (hopefully!)

The circus stuff in fed square, I think that's more on the acrobatics than twirling side, but might be worth looking at anyway. Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there a pyrotechnics display further along the river?

On a semi-related note, how do you get to the Thursday meet from Flinders?

archie: there's some good twirling to be seen, but if you're expecting a big fire show you may be slightly disapointed as many of us choose to practice more. on the otherhand.. we are a friendly bunch of people smile

Archie, Sunday nights are fun! I've only been to one, but even though we're practising its still a good show, and everyone's really nice as well.
