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...

Happy New Years!

I hope everything is wicked over there.

I just finished a wonderful holiday, i found a pair of gloves that allowed for some poiing in the park with a friend of mine and we traded tricks in the snowfall all day long. My japanenese is getting better so that when old men in the park wanted to know if we were playing with yo yo`s, i was sort of able to xplain.

Hey, fireyflow... i hope your shows went perfectly...i bet they were awe inspiring... and on a technical note.. i have now hit myself in the head 53 tines trying to learn the backwards five beat wave.... and tips????

Another year towards completion of the secrets of the universe...may we all happily look for clues!

ciao kids

Chrystel,

The trick is to hold the poi up in the air and dodge out of the way. it makes it much easier until you get better control at that particular move.

also, if you wanna buy some kevlar:
https://www.renegadejuggling.jp/

If u still can't find any fire-kids you should try asking there. They might know what's up in Nippon.

Thanks fiery

I will try it higher up. and i am also thinknig of making softer practice poi...oouuch

thanks for the website, i am gonna grab my chinese character dictionary and order some. I scared myself when loking at the web page that i was able to recognise which katakana symbols read kevlar.... i need to leave here soon or i will forget the alphabet.... I hope your new place is settled in and fabulous...

Ms Astro Have a happy birthday (ah,sweet sixteen)
i hope you have the craziest time possible!!

So thats why you weren't there!

I went to see the two towers, but didn't get to poi till 9:30. there was a sad message from Dawn saying that she thought poi had been cancelled because I wasn't there.



hope you had a happy math test. why do you need maths in philosophy? i'm just not smart enuff to understand what you do Lindsay.

Wish I was traveling some place warm and green!! Where has Linda gone??
I finaly got to a computer, after only a month and 1/2 or so.
sumtimez i think people forget about the wonderfull invention of the telephone
I missed poi tonight so I could finaly see LOTR the two towers, great movie but not exactly a pick-me-upper kind of film. My dad filled me in on all the parts that strayed from the book, he's a tuff critic!

well that's all from the silence... I hope all r well!

hey fiery friends, I'm back in Toronto! Went to Guatemala for a month, felt like a week. Chrystel, I saw Nikki and Nina, they're still down at the lake! They're going back to London in April. I did an awesome fire routine with my girlfriend Theresita and did the behind-the-back-weave with fire for the first time! I plan to come to play on tuesday. Lindsay, Davey, Frank, Bethany, Oscar, Dawn, etc. hope to see you all there!

Hi pants. Sure, I'd be into the park, as long as it's warmer.
I just put in a few pictures from my trip, which means (I'm sorry ) you're wedding pictures are off. Check out the new ones in the photo album, page 2, under "linda".
Sunspot, Fiery Flow, great to see you on Tues.
Chrystel, yes, Nikki and Nina are still there, although they're talking about going back to London this month. I think hopper was around. Have you found someone to play with? Hope everything is good with you.
