Crazy Busy!

Hi folks. It's been crazy busy for us here at Club since the middle of October. Not only has everyone been doing assessments and exams, but we have also had loads of people wanting us to help them celebrate in various ways.

We have had a couple of our new people perform with fire for the very first time.

We had a fantastic gig on campus to help people celebrate the Halls Residents' End of Year Dinner. Some of the crowd had a go at trying out their juggling. If you are interested in coming and learning more feel free to come down to the Rec Centre on campus at Massey and join us on Tuesdays and Friday nights between 5 and 7pm over summer hours. We'll be back to regular hours on the 28th February, 2016.

We were out in The Square in Palmy on the 27th of October for the FoodTruck Oktoberfeast. It's always rewarding to get out and be seen by the community, and we got some people pretty excited with our juggling, stilt walking and fire show.

We performed again at this year's Whanganui Festival of Cultures, where our performers worked hard to put on a thrilling show. 

Cracking on into fireworks season we did great shows both at the Come As U R Mardi Gras and the Rongotea Volunteer Fire Brigade Fireworks. So many excited children.. it was a real blast.

A few days after Guy Fawkes we headed back over to Whanganui for the River City Jamboree. We had a great night with some non-fire juggling, streamer poi and a fire show. Last night the weather held brilliantly and we were wowing people back home in The Square in Palmerston North for the Street Food Show Down.

It's such a buzz to hear enthusiastic feedback from people who have seen us performing. The number of people we see taking pictures and video of us with their phones there must be hundreds of pictures from each of the public gigs we do! If you ever feel like sending them to us you can share them on our Facebook page or email them to us at pnmufc@gmail.com
