Posted:ello to all sheffield poi and fire spinners out there, as i can see there are quite a few that use the bulletin board here! recent talks with several poi'ers that i know, we would like to meet up on sunday 30th december @ endcliffe park (ecclesall road)for an afternoon/evening of poi and fire frolics in the park to celebrate the festive seasons and see out the year before the mad new year parties where ever you may be going! basically just to have fun, meet other ppl that are unfortunate not to frequent headcharge or planet zogg and so we can all learn some new moves etc...so what do you all think? can you make it? post you replies here and i will put up more details..
thank funk for poi!

Posted:right O,
erm busy as hell right now so i gotta sort this out...need to do a pip this month...
but need support for this one, the weather is shite right now aint it... park is used as one big rugby pitch too and looks like a boating lake and with out freezeing to death outside too we can get some where indoors but that dont let us do fire... i am thinking sports hall or soming but i cant come up with money to cover all cost of hire, so it would have to be a chip in job depending on how much it would be for a fer hours...well thats just an idea if we could get good numbers...failing that one waterlogged park in the cold and rain no where to sit and if you guys wanna see me then its gonna have to be a sunday if thats a prob with anyone cos i is fully booked up from now till New years day accept sundays after i atleast get 4 hours kip.
gonna run round and find out prices for halls n stuff..wil keep you posted....cantus spread the word man.

Just a thought, you could try pubs with function rooms, there is a chance you could get the room for free as the pub will make money on drinks sales, and if there is a garden/yard then fire is possible.


Are we nearly there yet?

Posted:there sould be a fair bit of room in the lescar if all the tables and chairs are taken out of the back room. and there's the covered bits out the back as well.

and like you said, if there really isn't enough room to spin, there's always the booze

Posted:Fire Vampyre D - no I meant Mind Gap. But at the time we'd had a bit of a falling out and i was sulking. But all is fine now.

PK - new site looks wicked. Notice you've still got footage of that C@ntus kid spinning poi. That'll need updating soon i think. Cos I'm fairly sure he bounces a lot more now even if he's not any better at spinning.

And don't you dare mention COL4

OH MISTER PK...WHERE ARE YOUUUUUUU???
Helloooo?

Tried ringing you a million and one times, is your phone off the hook?

I also sent some carrier pigeons, later found them dead on the road so I put them through your letterbox they don't talk any more but you could make a tasty pie or something?

Would pop round but the Japanese man keeps scaring me.
Give us a bell when you get a chance. Not sure if I'm going to brave the weather on sunday especially with my paddling pool and everything. Also Pete's working in Nottingham on Sat night so I don't know how alive I'll be. But then again I know you're probably working too so I'll try and be as hardcore as you!

send hugs to Nat too

Posted:Is there a flyover?

Last time we were at weston park it snowed and we eventually called it off. Orange went to London as I recall.

Which is a fair distance to travel just to get out of the snow. But he's always enthusiastic about everything
