Posted:Hi everyone

If you dont already know me, Im Davin, from N. Ireland. Im pretty new to Poi/staffs etc and there is noone in my area into twirling.

Ive decided that I am going to take a trip to London at the start of next year.

I intend to go to the Poi in the Park and hopefully meet up with loads of new people so that we can chat and twirl.

If anyone is interested in meeting up with me when I come over can u please reply on this thread.

Hoping to see you all soon,

Love Luck and Lollipops
Dav

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

We dont bite...well i dont bite anyway

I would offer you a place to stay but i live quite some way out in the Sub Urbs (outside the m25) so you would be best with someone nearer.

Posted:I used to bite but I don't anymore!

I'm not usually drunk on Fridays at 2pm, only usuallt Saturdays & Sundays. One of the girls from work was leaving today. I was sitting beside the boss and he kept topping up my glass! Oopseydaisy! Apologies if my spelling is atrocious but focusing & screen not top notch right now!

But giggles - work is so much more fun when you feeling drunk!

I don't know where I will be living at the start of next year but you are welcome to a patch of my floor. If I'm still in the same place, chances are you will have a bed to kip on.

Posted:Hey Davin,

Any weekend in Jans good from the point of view that its prolly gunna be cold and wet through all of it anyway. I'd make your decision based on when its cheaper to fly.

As for airports, London has five, I wouldn't think you'd be getting any cheap flights to London City. London Luton is a bit of a trek out aswell. So, that leaves you with Stansted, Heathrow or Gatwick.

After you arrive, you can end up in the following stations by junping on trains/tube:

Stansted -> Liverpool Street station by overhead rail.

Heathrow -> Paddington by overground rail
-> Anywhere on the Picadilly line by underground

Gatwick -> Victoria by overground

Plus theres also a multitude of Air-busses, which I do not know much about.

Basically, as long as its after work, I'm available to meet you anywhere in London.

Lemme know what you decide to do

Posted:If you come into Gatwick i can meet you at the arrivals lounge as i live right near by

there's a Poi meet on Tuesday evenings at Spitalfields Market near Liverpool St.

There's also a Brixton meet on Wednesdays

And Claphams on Sundays normal stop in the winter as it's an outdoors thing and it gets too wet, cold and muddy.

Posted:So what days should I come over then?

It costs 36 return for the flights to London Gatwick with easyjet so It dont matter what dates i come over for.

Would it be wirth while coming on the Sunday and staying until thursday so I can go to the PiP if it happens on sundays and then the 2 meetings on tuesday and wednesday. Or will i not bother coming on the sunday?

ANy ideas?

Posted:Yeahhhhhh that sounds brilliant

You mean all you guys would take time out of your hectic lifes, just to meet me?

I feel so privilidged LOL

Well i need to book the flights soon to make sure they are still cheap.

ill keep you informed over the next couple of weeks and then book my flights and arrange a good date.

If you guys pick a weekend that suits you, I will book my flights around you as after all there is no point me coming over on a weekend that does not suit ANYONE hahaha would be a big waste of time! LOL

Posted:Happy days Pink - I cant wait to meet everyone now

Well i just told my Girlfriend last night that I was going to head over to London, and she is cool about it. She has no real interest in poi so she wouldnt be bothered coming over - which is a bonus for me as now im free to do what i like for my entire london trip. If I want to lay down in the middle of Picidilli Cirus and have a wee snooze, I can hahaha!
