Kosmik - If I lived in the US I would, why don't you organize one for yourself you will have plenty of people interested I am sure.GOA - I am trying to get an open type insurance so that anyone who just turns up and performs with us will be insured. So if ever you are in London give me a look and I will love to have you make a guest appearance!!Also I am still looking for more people so come on guys do not be shy, I know there are loads of you in London. If you do not think you are good enough it does not matter still contact me anyway!Thanx in advanceJez

Posted:HiI am putting forward the date of Sat 6th October for our first meeting. This will be in St James Park at 1:00pm. I will be in the first bit of field you see as you enter St James from trafalgar square. So you can recognise me I will be spinning my practise poi and I will have my staff with me. If you cannot make it please tell me.Please bring your equipment with you, but as you can guess we will not be able to do fire in St James park, if there is enough people interested we can move on later to do fire elsewhere.Please also start thinking of ideas to put to the group and we can make it a very productive day.One last thing if the weather is bad still turn up as I will arrange a dry place to go.Can't wait to see you allDaveP.S. If any new people who have not contacted me already want to go please e-mail me first so that I know who to expect.
