Posted:Hi Everyone,

We have realised how slack we have been, the weather has been fantastic and we have been going to lots of festivals and free parties and not getting round to having a regular poi meet.

So here are plans :

Monday Nights 10.00 pm in Queens Square, Bath.

we will probably make it a little earlier once it starts to get dark earlier

It would be good to see anyone that is in the area and feel free to contact me if you need more info/directions etc.

PS Forgot to say first one will be this Monday 29th July

Posted:Yes Garbo,

We have been meeting fairly regularly but not on any specific day so we are going to try and meet every Monday night now and probably do some other nights as well.

Hope to see you out in Bath soon,

Mark P

Posted:*BUMP*

Just thought I would bump this one as the first meeting is tonight @ 10.30pm

We do meet at other times (whenever possible basically!) so feel free to give us a shout if you cant make the Monday night meeting but would like to meet up and have a spin sometime.

Posted:Hi Maggie,

I try and make it along to as many free parties and festivals as possible, I work most Fri and Sat nights in a nightclub in Bath but I still make it to free parties in Bristol and Bath after work.

This Saturday (3rd Aug) there is a free party in Bristol that I am going to, I will be meeting Chloe (another fire twirler) there and there are bound to be a few other spinners
*EDIT* Cancelled due to Police busts at Last 2 Parties

Friday the 16th of August, I have the night of work as it is my birthday and we are having cocktails at a mates house, there are qute a few of us that do fire and there is also a fairly big park outside where we will be engaging in some fun and frolics throughout the night - You are welcome to come along as is anyone else that is around Bath and would like to have a bit of a spin with us.

It would be good to see you out at some stage,

Mark P

Posted:Hi Folks,

Thanks to everyone who turned up on Monday and made it a brilliant night! - 6 person firebreathe was a first for me and made a really impressive firebreathe!

It was quite a shock to go from our usual 5-6 people to 40+ After the amazing turn out last Monday we are ready to go again this Monday

Time has moved to 10.00pm as it is getting dark a little earlier.

I will not be able to make it this week as I am in Warwick giving a talk (which I am currently trying to write!) but the rest of the usual suspects will be there.

Mark P (trying to think of ways to get out of this conference )

Posted:Monday was more than a little bit mad! Can't complain though!

I'm not sure if the hotel over the road were too pleased about the drummers, but Ithaca spoke to the police and the council, and they are happy to leave us to it

See you all next Monday!

What are the prices and sizes on Kevlar - I am possibly interested in either some rope or some large kevlar.
