and the lingering smell of burnt hair is now associated with pleasure.

are you guys in Wgtn?

I've only been doing it a month or so, but am getting right into it, and have a good group to learn things from. Amazing how fast it is to pick things up.

If you are in Wgtn try joining the google group Wellington Fire.

Alternatively, I'd be keen to pick up a second-hand staff :D Currently I am using basically a baton, 1100 long. Kinda jumpy for contact stuff but great for getting things tight.

Nah, I am down in Chch.

I learned a whole bunch of stuff back in about 2001/2002 over in Perth and was part of a performance group. Used to get paid to go to outdoor music gigs and play with fire... was all good :thumbsup:

There are probably fire groups down this way too... but I have been too busy doing other stuff to bother looking.

yeh, there are outdoor dance parties down this way that i could go along to if I wanted... I got a bit over that sort of stuff about 5 years ago (used to go to all sorts of all night dance parties in the middle of nowhere) and would rather go ride my mountain bike these days :lol:

yeah one gets a bit sick of crowds and lack of sleep. KB's a slightly different sort of event. never mind.

i've kinda done the reverse. sick of riding the bike and would prefer something a bit more creative and social.
