Posted:Alright, a number of us have met in Toronto a couple of times now in Christie Pits park, and are going to be meeting on a semi-regular basis. Eariler tonight we thought it would be a good idea to start a thread for GTA spinners, where we can post meeting locations and times, and others can post to say if they'll be available, etc.

and...well, this is it. Enjoy, all.

PS. When did we decide we'd be getting together next? I wasn't paying too much attention I'm afraid...

Posted:what is this?? our lurvly toronto thread only four slots from dropping off the bottom of the page and into HoP oblivion? something must be done.

*bump*

much better

well, my stuff is packed and I'm pretty much ready to roll out of here tomorrow. I just wanted to say what a pleasure it has been meeting and getting to know you all over the course of the summer. I can't tell you how immensely I have enjoyed all our spin jams, be they at christie pits, trinity, cherry beach, om, the reverb, high park, or wherever else we may have gathered...

I would list off names here, saying thank you and goodbye, but I know that I will forget someone and I couldn't bear to leave anyone out...

it has also been amazing to watch our little poi group of six or seven people blossom into this lovely community. I was talking Bethany (Miss Astrofunklove) on sunday, and she was saying how different the poiers were that she met on her travels...I think it really shows how lucky we are to have such an openminded, openhearted and inclusive group of spinners.

also, Paddy is suffering from a killer flu...I don't know where I got it from but I hope you guys are feeling alright...

take care all, and I'll be in touch with you over HoP and firewire, and I'll be sure to come down and visit when I'm in town.

Paddy

As Paddy said we were talking about my trip and the spinners I met at Shambhala, less than a handfull who were freindly. It made me miss all y'all so much and I kept picturing you guys running around the grounds having a blast! Next year we ALL HAVE TO GO and represent and show those guys the best poi community there is!!

All we have to do to prove anything is continue being friendly to newbies, teach, learn, grow and we've proved everything already!

Posted:Davy, that's what I ment...didn't say prove anything. I'm highly confident dare I say even a bit arogant in the knollage that "us" our group just being ourselves is the only catalis needed to better our world!
Teaching by doing so to speak...that's all I ment by "represent" and "show those guy's the best poi community EVER!"

I think "we" Ontarians made a good impression there in general. This one guy from BC i was talking too was quick to tell me how ALL the people from ONT. that he met were realy nice and friendly...suprising as Toronto gets such a bad rap for it's unfreindliness.

CIRQUE??? Are you guys planning on going to see Veriki(or how ever it's spelled) ???
Cuz I wanna go too!!!!
Or have you gone already?

Hello friends, It's dave here. Just wanted to remind you that the beach party will be happening on the Holiday Monday this weekend. One highlight will be the live sitar and digeridoo combo of Yoshi and Chie, the cutest couple in the world. They will be playing at 5 and are really amazing to hear.
Also, I am a bit involved in the Reclaim the streets march today (friday) at 7pm. They totally could use some twirlers to make their march complete. It's late notice, but should be worth it, here's detiails:

Friday aug 30th
Reclaim the Streets
A group of dedicated people wants to help us reclaim the right to use our own streets to live in and socialize. Bicyclists, performers, hippies, drummers, moms and dads and kids all group together to snake through the streets, ending up at a spontaneous downtown street party. Promise is bringing djs Lee Osborne, Andrew Allsgood and Randy Twigg to play at the street party. This all begins at Bellevue Square Park in Kensington Market (you know that little park) at 7pm, and, as it's a roving affair, you should show up more or less on time or it might disappear down the road.

Posted:hey all,

just checkin' in from Ktown. I'm the first to move in, so that been a bit of added pressure...having to clean the place up, scrub the kitchen, etc. all the people I'm living with will just walk into a house that looks brand-spankin' new, the lucky ducks. I have nonetheless found some time to spinnnnn...though the 7 foot ceilings and 10 min walk to closest park will make practice during the winter trickier than it should be. me tinks I'll use the gym for spinning spacce once the weather gets nasties.

davey, bethany, linda, thanks for kinds words! I will miss you guys (and eveyone else of course!) and nice to meet you Patrick!

I'm trying to get a tuesday night thing going on here to mirror the good ol toronto meets. I know a few people that are interested in learning, and I plan to litter the whole campus with flyers, but you'd need real dedication from at least a few people to get something going that would be big enough to survive a winter lull. so I'm going to see if I can get a few people truly hooked. we'll see.

last tuesday was really weird. our garbage goes out on wednesday mornings so those meets have given me the summer off of having to get it ready, so when my dad me to do so last tuesday night it really struck me that things were changing and I wasn't where I really wanted to be... (sniff) weird times.

promethea people: 'til the internet gets hooked up next wednesday I only have sporadic net access at the library and no personal email, so I can only get a hold of you here. what are the caveperson costumes being made out of? a friend of mine works at fabricland so I can get anything I'd need nice and cheap. let me know!

I guess that's it. the week ahead is going to be nucking futs. I will do my best to stay in touch and I will see you all at harvest!

my best to you all,

Paddy

Posted:hi boys and girls i'm back from burning man. whew! so sad that i missed paddy's last week here in t-dot, but i'll always have the memories *sniffle* *sniffle*

actually i'm gonna be visiting kingston in the future to see some burner friends i made who go to school there as well, so maybe i'll surprise you at one of your kingston tuesday poi meetings.

so, judging from missastrofunklove's last post, there will be more cherry beach parties yet this year? is that true? or are we meeting somewhere else to spin on sundays? anyone? anyone? bueller?

at very least i'll see y'all on tuesday. rock on.

Posted:^^glad to see you made it back in one piece

this sunday Sept 8, 2 -10pm

livin' large and promise
cherry beach sunday afternoon soundsystem

Bring a frisbee, bring a kite, bring a handy sweater, bring a dog (only nice dogs), bring your lover and a hammock. And pass the time on this lazy sunny sunday afternoon with friends and friends of friends.

directions
Take Lakeshore Blvd East of Toronto, just past Parliament
Turn sound south down Cherry Street all the way to the parking lot at the end
Walk west (right) along the beach and you'll hear music
And, biking there is easy along the trails beside the lakeshore

things to think about
Please don't bring more than you plan to take back out with you - leave no trace.
Bring something warm and something to sit on and also something to keep sun off your head and maybe some bug spray for the evening.
Also, this is a word-of-mouth event. If you know someone who will like this type of free outdoor event, please let them know.

If weather turns foul the day of, call 323.0361 for the emergency update. <<it's supposed to be 32 degrees tomorrow

See you there.

cheers,
Jim, Rene, Keijo, the Reverend, David and Irving

So happy you're well and happy. I looked in the "Meet Others" section and there's 9 people in Japan, mostly in Tokyo.

I hope you find someone!

Posted:quote:beach party friday september 27th

If the good weather holds up we're going to throw a
shindig down at cherry beach next friday (27th?).

Anyhow, i know this is an old refrain, but we were
hoping that someone out there might have access to a
generator (maybe you know someone who works at a home
depot who'd let us ride off into the sunset with one
). We're also looking for people to come help us set
up so that we can get things started a little earlier
than usual (anyone with a car would be esepcially
helpful).

Based on the events last time around we're probably
not going to broadcast info on this too widely. Though
feel free to inform anyone that you feel would be a
positive addition to our gathering. We're aiming for a
crowd of about 150-200 this time. We've never had
difficulties with the police at that size in the past.
We also
intend to make arrangements with the security that
patrols the service road behind the field to let them
know what we're up to so they don't freak out. Either
way,
plan on a late night as we've always until about 9am.
Cheers,
Steve

p.s. if
anyone knows those fire dancers from the last party,
make sure to bring them along...they were a treat!

Thats also why they're being cautious about advertising. I don't figure the cops will check this board though. Its not local.

So yeah, Paddy, this friday, come to Toronto, we miss you!
