Remember 5 pm at Luna Park, not 7pm or even 8pm.

Yet again no one at the Sunday twirl thingy. I spent an hour or so practising by myself. If anyone is going this Sunday can you give me a PM or send a message. I might have to venture out to Edinburgh gardens.

Posted:hey man i was in the same boat almost two yeers ago wif the wednesday night twirl.
so i made up a flyer (the link to which is on this tread...somewhere!) and passed it around the close family that we call the melb fire community. Peeps forget details, lose dates, fall outta trees, so a little reminder on a paper dun hurt!
Perhaps it would be useful to use your passion to put up a notice on a community board or better yet start a St Kilda, Victoria thread so that people notice it's existence when they give the events and gathering sections a cursory glance. I live in the westssiiide and would rock more often as hangovers allow.

I'll keep turning up even if others do not. This weekend i'm on call for work, so whether I turn up will be based if I get called or not.
Are the Wednesday things still happening at 8ish?

Posted:I don't know what night your talking about bender. The Sunday meets at Luna Park now start at 5pm. It's earlier so that youngen's (new to the sport... not age smile) like myself can get the benifit of learning off others, while there is still some sunlight.
The Wednesday night Edinburgh thing starts at 8/9pm. That's the big night.
The Sunday you refer to (May 2nd) I will be rocking up at 5:30 (late due to work)

It'll be a nice change to spin in the daylight smile


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:I will be there tomorrow! Just look out for long pink braids and that will be me. I am excited cos yesterday in Canberra in a discovery-store type place I finally found some of those squidgy spikey things that flash like a mad-thing when you sqeeze them and make excellent poi.. I got 3 (last 3 in the shop) for $9 ubbrollsmile so can't wait to have a proper play with them.

Gosh I can't believe it's tomorrow I am coming to this spin, I've been reading about it for so long! Flynt I need to pm you, will do now, hope you are still ok to meet me as I am still scared to go alone! ubblol

see you all tomorrow... wave

Posted:Geez my spelling is bad. The *weather* wasn't too bad.

T'was a reasonable turnout, great to see. I should have pressed you guys for more trick tuition. This morning, I managed to hit reverse 5 beat weave (8 cycles) after Flynt had shown me 4 beat weaves (forward direction).

Got plenty of time off this week. smile Much practice needed.

Cant make this sunday frown, going to Queenstown instead smile. But I will be in Melbourne for sunday the 9th wearing my giggle pants.

Hope to see you then

Now I am going to walk along the beach to Luna park via the Baths and a Rotunda (all of which I am told you spin at) and if I dont find anyone, I am going to be very upset. Okay here i go, out into the dark....Waaaah I'm scared. I cant even work out how to get back to the city after! Oh my lord I just did a very embarrassing sneeze in the internet cafe. Dont you hate it when that happens.....oh lord look at the time.......off I go.........
