Hi there! Do you spin fire? Do you want to learn to spin fire? Do you want to dance in the great circle & watch the man burn from some of the best seats in the house?
Well, now is the time to get off you bum and start working towards that goal!
Every year, just a few weeks before TTITD, conclaves all across the country get contacted by spinners that want to join. Thing is, in order to be accepted in to the great circle, the groups that get in have been working for months on their performance. Those conclaves must inform the people wanting to join that they are late, and should start working towards next year.
So, in the hope of heading some of that off, or at least smugly point people in the direction of this thread come August, here are a few things to note.Fire spinners & aspiring fire spinners!
Now is the time for you to contact your local group/troupe/conclave!
Get in touch with your local groups and find out who is Shin, and start practicing!
If you are one of the people that tries the "jackass-come-lately" method described above, you will look like just that... a jackass.Read this
for information on what is required of a conclave, and this afterburn report
has information on groups that will likely be auditioning for the great circle.
Now that I have done my lecturing bit....
Fire spinners in Oregon: the Oregon Fire Conclave has begun rehearsals. We welcome spinners of all levels, from novice to ninja. We have a schedule that requires a large amount of practice, 6-8 rehearsals per month. We also have a cutoff time around March, after which we are no longer accepting new members for this year. Our next rehearsal is Sunday, Jan 22, 1pm, at Alberta park in Portland, OR. If any of that sounds interesting, message myself or OregonRed here on eplaya. You can also look us up on the bookface.
