Hello all, I am just seeing if any of you will be in Thailand this summer? I am going to be there from the 13th of this month untill the 21st of August. So if any of you are in the neighborhood we should get together, maybe party, or even spin alittle! I think I will be coming back with both of my middle finger missing do to the constant wear and tear I will be putting on them. I thought I had a compulsive spinning disorder here, I don't even want to think how often they will be in my hands when I get there. Or if anyone has been there I would also love to here the world of wisdom your experience has taught you!

I will be in Thailand from approx. the 24th of July until the 8th of August. Maybe we can meet up for the Full moon party on the 4th and spin some fire.------------------"London is a city coming down from its trip and there's going to be a lot of refugees" - Danny,Withnail & I

That sounds good! I will be there on the 15th, and I will be able to keep contact with you through email, so here is mine. (soulsurfer_22@hotmail.com) I can't wait to get there, my buddy is there and he says there is some incredable spinners there. What do you spin? How long, that kind of stuff? I spin glow sticks mostly, I have spun fire about 20 times only. I have my own set and I will be bringing them along with lots of extra wick to make new ones and also for other people too.

Hi CooperIf my flight to India doesn't work out I might be in Thailand from July 23rd till the 20th of August.I spin fire and comet poi and have spun glowsticks a couple of times. I've also heard there are some incredible spinners in Thailand and I can't wait to get some advice & help (I am entirely H.O.P taught, and great as the site is it's quite hard to viusalize a lot of the moves with.) I started poi a little over a year ago, and lit up for the first time in March, although I'm embarrassed to say I'm still not very good. After the long winter though I have started practising and I'm starting to feel more comfortable with fire poi now. I can't wait to get to Thailand where I can practice daily and spin with other poiers.My email is kathryncarey@lycos.com or kat@gaijin.co.jp. I'll be checking both of those addresses when I'm in Thailand.------------------"London is a city coming down from its trip and there's going to be a lot of refugees" - Danny,Withnail & I

Coolest place for spinning I saw there was Kho Phan Gha and its full moon party, but for sure, just about any place with some travelers will do.

Kat: I am leaving for Thailand tomorrow and will arrive on the 15th. If you do come I would love to spin with a fellow spinner. You can get ahold of me with the email I had posted earlier. Hope to see you soon! Or anyone else going to Thailand....Cooper

There is an excellent fire poi teacher (he charges $) on Haad Thien beach on Koh Pangan. He stays @ Haad Thien resort. Just ask around for Fire Tim. If you see him, tell him Chris from Seattle says hi. He can teach just about anyone. He also makes some really nice fire poi.
