Posted:Hey all,

Just wanted to let everyone know that last night this T.O. meet went down, and it was a great time...many fantastic hours of chatting and spinning and watching. It's certianly nice to know that there's something started for all the spinners in the GTA.

Many thanks to Vitaly for organizing all this! I'd imagine it was a lot of work, and I'm sure everyone appreciates it.

And thanks everyone for the batteries! Will bring them back next week.

Posted:Well it was so great to see everyone there. I got myself a couple of nice bruises that I'm quite proud of from the glow sticks. My first ever...since my bean bags don't really bruise me I can't wait until next week...watching everyone do fire, maybe trying it, getting a few more bruises, maybe burning my hair off...hehe...it's gonna be a blast

Posted:dear fiery flow,
we've moved to "official toronto thread". We could probably meet on June 15th. Can you do evenings? fire is just brilliant at night. If not, we could get together in the day.

Posted:I just stumbled across this site after searching for ppl that know anything about poi in the T.O area forever....Im so pleased. I lived out in Vancouver a few years back, and worked with a stiltwalking troup. One of my instructors was into poi, and Ive since then been interested in learning and someday being able to combine the 2.
Someone mentioned something about meeting near the Wellesley station...I think I may be going to school at IAOD this summer, and man, that would be perfect.
I would really appreciate it if someone could give me a few tips on where to start...Ive heard the transition from tennis balls to real poi can throw u off a bit *weight issues* so in saying that...what would be the best thing to start off with? Unlit poi?

*Thrilled*

Posted:WHat's up MDW,

We're meeting next monday at 8:30. Check out the "Official Toronto Thread"...that's the one all us Toronto folks are using to organize ourselves. Can you make it out?

As for starting out, unlit poi are nice and soft, so you could do that. But from my experience, changes in weight will throw you off for a few minutes, but then you'll adjust and are back in fighting form. You want to be versatile, so try spinning lots of stuff. Socks on shoelaces are good until you stop hitting yourself in the groin.
