Posted:hey all... how is everything? i am sooo glad there are so many more fellow swingers in the uk although it almost makes me sad because i hardly swing my poi nowadays...

i am definitely up for a night of swinging, i'll try and watch out this space for details...chloe & garbo i am coming back to the uk on the 29th of Sept but the first couple of weeks will be quite hectic; after that i'll be able to travel down to london, it will be great if we can arrange something but i am warning you both, you'll have to teach me everything from scratch coz i dont practise at all

...it will be great to meet up anyways though and a few hits on the head can only add some more fun to the whole experience (and some bruises on my head!!! lol)...happy swinging to all,Simos

Posted:Hey all,Nice to see so many friendly faces. If anyone wants to meet up with me in London, that would be great. I'll be in Camden (NW London) for the next two weeks and would love to meet some fellow poiers as, in the two years I've been doing this, I have not seen another solitary SOUL do it (apart from a few beginners in Brighton)!Peace to all.FP xxxPS: Mail me at Rachelslack@hotmail.com - I'm not checking the addy in 'meet others' for a bit...PPS: See y'all at Glastonbury next year! Get in touch GoaFire! Freaky, 'cos I went last year and didn't see anybody...maybe I was just in a trance

Posted:Sweet, I'm in West London near Kew Gardens and I'd love to meet up with some poi'ers some time... I'm not free very often because I have stuff going on on the weekends (saturday school :P piano lessons that sort of thing) most of the time so we'll have to plan ahead... so mail me darkstarangel@hotmail.comI'm ok, i'm just on the "second plateau" - basically i've got all the hard moves (5bt, rvs 3bt sort of thing) but none of the damn-hard moves (7bt, rvs 5 bt sort of thing), and my style isnt that good, and I'm not too creative (with moves that I can do, that is). But I can learn

Posted:Hi xangiebabesx,You can buy practice and fire poi (and a good selection of collapsible staves etc) from 'Oddballs' in Camden. Turn right out of the main exit of the tube station keep walking up the road, over the bridge, past the lock until you get to a huge green train bridge over the road. Stop here, look over your left shoulder and lo! there is Oddballs. Blink and you miss it. It is more of a cupboard than a shop!It's a bit pricey - cheaper to order online from here if you can wait...but the people are pretty friendly and you can go outside and flail some poi about a bit with only oooh, 2-300 spectators

Alternatively, if you do a search for 'practice poi' on this site you'll find loads of ideas about how to make your own. One of my first pairs was a couple of glowsticks on shoelaces

Posted:Simos: its time to get you swinging your poi again i think.. at least theres one good thing, my standard may be somewhere near yours now if you haven't practiced for so long. Send me an email, i'm around for a few weeks, got a few gigs, a fire one at Fletching bonfire night (nr Brighton) on the 13th Oct, and an indoor gig with the African Drumming group i dance with on the 16th in Margate so i'm gonna b round till then. After that i'm moving up to Bristol for while, from reading this it looks like theres a nice scene up there that i will no doubt find myself involved in

I have a few other fire friends in London who would like to meet up aswell, so we could organise a little meet possibly, see what happens. ( i have been living in a field in Devon... surfing and stuff... for the last 2 1/2 weeks, i'm kinda taking life as it comes, and being very chilled about it all

Dougal: I'm in the furthest reaches of Kent, the back of beyond, the blackspot.... Thanet. Broadstairs to be precise, which isn't _as_ bad as say... ramsgate, or margate! If you wanna meet up at some point we could do canterbury cos it's kinda in betweeen. I'm not gonna be going back to uni, somehow i have finished my degree (where did those 3 yrs go?!!) and am now an 'unemployed graduate' teeheehee! As i said, i'm moving to bristol for a while, (unless i can get a good job down here) and will be around for a couple of weeks at least. So drop me a line.. the_invisible_fish@hotmail.comChloe------------------Chloe.-I'm dancing through the fire just to catch a flame- Paul Weller

It is damn cold at the moment but I dont think that has any chance of stopping us.I have only been spinning for about 3 weeks so the only thing that is going to stop me turning up is going to be severe frostbite in the fingers.It is always good to see new faces too

If you have a sofa bed, spare room, comfy cusions on the floor say hi. Of course if you need the same....It's all in the wrist baby------------------TEMPEST
