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...

Hey doods,
The June 1st pics are now up on the Toronto Poi site, so you can get 'em here. Version 2.0 of the page is currently in the works.
I'll be there at High park on Saturday.
Also, I will ask my boss tomorrow if I can get Friday of Om off. Will then finally be able to sort out some a ride, if anyone would would be willing to give me a lift...
Anyways, enjoy.

Hey folks,

sorry for being awol for so long, but I haven't been able to get free for the last few saturdays. Took a look at your website Paddy, and those photos are looking sweet! Likely won't be able to make this saturday either, but I'm aiming to check out the Tuesday group down at bellwood. Hope to see some of you there.

Cheers

There will be firedancing.

Hey all

I'm working on the poi today intently...trying to get at least a few done to bring to the park this afternoon...well evening..I think I'll be there around 5pmish...I'll just bike over since I'm down the street.

If anyone's interested in buying new comet poi with the removable tails, please bring 25-30$(depending on which ones you want, some will be better than others). I will only be bringing like 3 poi maybe so first come first serve!

if you're not sure what i'm talking about, i made linda and bethany's poi, just remember or have a look at theirs.

so see everyone tonight at around 5pm at highpark!

p.s. if you're wondering why i'm not going to ward's island like originally planned, i'm sure you can figure the rest by noticing the nasty weather :/ oh well... highpark it is!

peace&cheers,ra :)

Hey everyone!

I don't live anywhere near Toronto, but I'll be in town the last weekend of June for Synthpop Goes the World, and I was wondering if there was any chance I could meet any of you. Are you guys planning on getting together that weekend? Is anyone, by chance, going to SGtW??

Thanks!

Absolutely wonderful meeting all of you yesterday. The weather was crap, but that gazeebo is perfect for bad weather gatherings

Chrystel, I'm not sure about other gatherings, there's probably going to be one, but I am really foggy on when they are...

So where is Trinity-Bellwood park?

I'm having trouble organizing this list of poi gatherings in my head.

Wow, last night was awesome. Fiery Flow, great to finally meet you. I love your flags and other toys, thanks for teaching me the new moves. Peter, thanks so much for bringing Pizza. Yum. Sunspot, I haven't been jogging in the rain for months. Thank you. Boki and Vitalyo what happened to you guys. We missed you.
The next poi meet is tuesday at trinity. It is led by the very talented Lola from Austin. Trinity is about 7 blocks west of Bathurst, on Queen. Take the road into the park, follow it to the right, and then go toward the light. Last week they were under a tree. Previous weeks they've been in the pit.
Generally, it's Saturday at Christie and Tuesday at Trinity. Our Tuesday contact is pronounciatmento. Check his previous posts on this page.

Hey doods,

I posted this in the Om festival thread...I don't think anyone saw it, so I thought I'd post it here as I do need a bit of help...

quote:
Bethany (or anyone else that's been to OM)!
I'm beginning to set stuff aside for packing now because if I don't start now I won't be ready till august. I was just wondering if anyone could enlighten me with insiders tips on what to bring. So far I'm thinking flashlight, clothes, and...erm...well that's where you come in. If anyone could help I'd appreciate. Thanks.
I've since thought of a few other things...plate & cutlery for food, sunscreen, and food for communal kitchen. Is there anything else I should bring?? What do people do for light after dark, in terms of lighting large areas? Are torches a good idea?

Also, I'm going to pay at the gates as it would cost more for me to drive to TO and get an advance ticket. Is there a chance it will be full and they won't be letting anyone in without a ticket? I'll go grab one if there's any chance that will happen.

THanks!

Hey Vitaly-oh I'm glad they'll still be some one in T.O. to spin with Do you think we could change the meet to Sunday and then maybe have it on the beach???..that way it'd be close for us...otherwise I don't think I can make it on saturday...plus it's supposed to rain! Talk to you soon.

All you lucky OM goers>> I hope you have a blast twirlin' & partin' all weekend. Someone have a burn for me

Goodluck with the performance thing Linda & Paddy..and whoever else has the guts to get up there

Hello folks, I just got here from the UK and am sooo pleased to find all you pyro's already. I'm hoping to meet you all in person soon, I don't have a set of poi's although I do have a diablo which I really need to practice with. Talking of that is anyone going to be out in Christie Pits park tommorrow or are you all going to this OM festival (are there any web links for more info?). I'd love to come along if newbies are still welcome.
By the way if anyone still wants webspace I've got plenty atm just email and let me know.

Thats it for now - I need to dig out my sticks and get practicing.
