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:Could you guys do me a huge favor and use the mailing list for this stuff? Its difficult to follow this thread, especially as it gets longer.

I won't be at christie pits on saturday, and right now this is all a surprise to me so I probably won't be there on sunday either.

I will be at the reverb on saturday night, with all my toys.. If anyone would like to join me for that.

Posted:I'm afraid there's about a 90% chance I won't be going tonight. sorry folks, I guess next week, as I won't be around next weekend...

Which brings me to my point here. I'm going to the US for a family reunion, and I plan on swinging by a toys-r-us to pick up some of those light wands like Space had (before she broke them ). I'd be happy to pick some up for you folks as well...just send me a PM and we'll sort it out. I think they're $15US each, but I'll I'll have internet access down there so I can let you know exact prices if you need to know before you decide.

Take care doods.

Posted:Oh yeah.. on another note.

Hillary, the co-organizer for the Resistor psy-trance parties, has given us permission to have a pre-party poi session (or early party anyways).

This gives us a chance to play with our UV and glow toys with lots of room and loud music.

Unfortunately, because people show up and want to dance, we are restricted from 10pm - 11:30pm.. but I'll see about getting us extended to 9pm if the interest is good enough.

...so I'll just post the info for the BoatCruiseParty here. ENJOY

*huggzz* me B.

From: "fukhouse" <fukhouse@techno.ca>
To: "alienInFlux" <alieninflux@solar.ezenet.com>

alienInFlux is back with a kick ass BOAT CRUZ on the 19th

Friday July 19 - Tall Sailing Ship Midnight Moon Cruise.

alienInFlux and Promise host our second cruise together on the lovely
tall
sailing ship Kajama. The Kajama holds 200 people and is truly the most
beautiful boat out of Toronto to dance on. The boat was built in
Germany in
1930 and was a trading galleon for over 70 years all over Europe and
the
East. It has 3 masts with working sails and a great sound system.

We are finally in the full throes of summer and July 19th boasts a
brilliant
moon to light our way off into the mist, so the atmosphere will be
perfect.
11pm -3:30am. $30. Reply to this email for tickets.

I've been traveling Central America for six months and have finally
returned. I will be butting some other annual events together this
summer
which include this Tall Sailing Ship Midnight Moon Cruise, July 19th,
The
Harvest Festival in September and possibly another Boreal Canoe trip in
August. I'm confidant these events will all be a fantastic success and
I
hope that you will come out and party hard in the great out doors with
us.

See you out there.

Looks like it's going to be another weekend at the beach. The Promise Boys are throw'en another afternoon beach party ThiS SUNDAY! Here's the info and chec out the "special thanks" part

*huggzz* me B.

David and Irving of Promise here. Last week's afternoon beach party went so nicely that we have decided to do another one this Sunday. Here are the details, followed by people to thank for helping make the last one such a success.

Sunday July 7, 2pm - 9 pm

Promise Cherry Beach Sunday Afternoon Soundsystem.

with djs
Jah Reverend dub reggae
Kerry Potts trippy house
Steve Yanko funky house
Lewis Kaye techhouse
Adam Marshall funky techno

and special surprise guest!

Last week we enjoyed a wonderful sunset over the skyline of Toronto and the beats sounded so delicious echoing off of the trees. This week should be just as fun.

Directions
Lakeshore Blvd East of Toronto
Turn right down Cherry Street
Go all the way to the parking lot at the end of the street
Go to your right (West) until you hear music.
Remember, biking there is easy along the trails along the lakeshore.

Things to think about
Please don't bring more than you plan to take with you, it has to be left clean.
Bring something warm and also something to keep sun off your head.
If weather turns foul the day of, call 323.0361 for emergency update.

Special thanks: to Rene, Keijo and Jim of Livin' Large for the sound system.
We would like to thank some wonderful people for making last week's beach event so nice. Thanks to Justin and Lana of alieninflux for bringing hammocks and a generator, Livin' Large for the sound, Reverend for helping to put the whole event together, Chris Deville for playing and helping, also Jon Bannister, Ln, Adam Wood, Zaria and the crew of fire dancers for helping work or clean up, Lee Osborne, Dan Lui, Mike Lambert, Blissom and Kimberly of Spot Records, Mental Floss, Jean Marc for playing flute and Bridget Dibernardi for singing.

I just want to say that I miss everyone tons!!! Funny how when i'm finally in Toronto, I dont get to spin nights! I have oodles and oodles of work to do, and the wonderful people i'm living with have been taking me out every second of 'spare' time I have to meet people and party. I do however have a wonderful ginormous flat roof at the back of my house that keeps me sane. I hope it wont be too long before I see all of you kids again.
Cheers,
Stace aka *Space*

Posted:Hey peeps, what's goin on?

SOrry it's been a while since I've been out to any meets. Have been extraordinarily busy.

Speaking of which, I won't be able to make it this Saturday OR the one after. Technically I could be there this Tuesday but it's my birfday so it's family dinner time, plus I think my friends want to take me out somewhere. Bethany, I am extremely grateful for the invite this Thursday, as I CAN make it to that and I don't know when I'd be seeing you folks otherwise.

How is our loverly CHristies Pits park? I heard it's being used as a garbage dump. Let's twirl some rats by the tail, says I.

The trip was last weekend was great 'cept that the majority of the ToysRuses in the states are being closed down and I couldn't find Light Wands ANYWHERE. One place said they carried them but were out of stock. Boo-urns. My mum is going the the states on business in a week or two and she says she'll take a look around if she has some time.

Anyways, hope you're all doing well and I guess I'll see you all next Thurs.

oh.. and we've moved the saturday shindig to High Park near Keele Stn until the garbage clears out. I was there just today, and to be honest it smells too, just like the rest of this city, but Christie is pretty extreme right now..
