NOTICE: Tonight’s April 17 Full Moon Jam CANCELLED

Filed under: Uncategorized — WildfireWeaver @ 9:51 am  

Chicago’s schizophrenic weather patterns strike again. The organizers have regretfully decided to cancel the April FMJ.

The rain/snow/slush from the last few days have left the field at the Foster Lakefront park a mudpit and it’s going to be COLD with temperatures predicted in the high 30s and wind gusts up to 30mph. Neither are going to be ideal conditions for spectators or performers (and will the slipperiness of the ground it’ll be downright dangerous).

The next FMJ is scheduled for sunset on TUESDAY, MAY 17.

So apologies, everyone. I know lots of us have been looking forward to the jam but an April start just isn’t in the cards this year. Hopefully the weather gods will be in a much more amiable mood next month because we’re going to start off the 2011 fire spinning season right!

(The following is the official notice from the FMJ organizers)

Dear Full Moon Jammers,

We regretfully send this email with the sad news. The April Full Moon Jam is canceled.
We had to cancel the jam this month due to the combination of the extreme wet conditions of the fields (they are a mud pit right now) and the cold weather (40 degrees).
All of us have been super excited and waiting for the jam to happen all winter long.  We must be patient though and allow Spring to take its course.
We look forward to seeing everyone next month on Tuesday May 17th for next Full Moon Jam.
Enjoy a nice relaxing Sunday, at home, in the warmth with a cup of hot coco.

New Feature: Performance Schedule page

Filed under: Uncategorized — WildfireWeaver @ 10:47 am  

Good news – I’ve just added a handy-dandy new “Performance Schedule” page, listing the date and location of upcoming and previous events all in one place. I’ll be updating the page as I schedule new performances.

The website is coming along nicely! I’ve got a photo shoot scheduled for later this week, so I’ll have new photos for each of the fire tools I use and hopefully figure out how to add a photo gallery page.

And eventually (fingers crossed) I’ll be able to add a few videos to the site as well!
