Posted:Come to the second TRIBE OF FUNDANGO on Sunday 13th November 2-10pm
Nottingham Student Union Ballroom
see: www.nottsjuggling.co.uk/fundango
N.B. later starting time - next one on 11 Dec.

First thing: the music policy this time is going to be much less pumping and quieter and more fun.
So apologies to those that thought it was a bit loud and hard last time. Lesson learnt.

And we have an extra room booked this time so there will be even more space for all types of juggling.
There was plenty of room last time too. So come along even if you dont do clubs. Lots of POI and STAFF happening

The theme this month is CLUB JUGGLING and CLUB PASSING and a list of the workshops is given below (more details to follow).
VOLLY CLUB court available all day - competitions organised.
There will also be begginners and intermediate POI and STAFF spinning classes going on all day courtesy of Field of Fire.

The shedule is:
2pm doors open - volly club available all day.
3-7pm workshops
4-7pm food hall open
7-8pm games and demonstrations
8-10pm general juggle to silly music with some good videos being shown
10pm onwards - carry on back at my place

Come one come all come have a ball.....er...and a club.. and some poi too actually
See you next weekend
Cheese, Peachi


Workshops for 13th November
*********************************
* Begginners and intermediate Poi w/shops with G and Smit - Fields of Fire Posse

* Begginners staff and intermediate trick swap with G and Smit - Fields of Fire Posse

* 2-3 Club Passing Workshops by Tarim and Mandy
Going from the interesting to the sublime to the mind meltingly tricky
For people who are confident passing with both hands.
Workshops will be organised to suit standard of people attending as Tarim
doesn't know what intermediate and advanced really means - fair enough
The last workshop will probably be a 3+ people passing one and may merge
with some silly games in the main hall.

* Club Juggling with Jamie
3 clubs different throws (intermediate). This will
include full spins, half spins, reverse spins, flats,
slap backs, body throws (back crosses and under leg),
kick-ups and overheads.

* Club Juggling with Mad (platinum) Martin - local hero
423, 522 and (4x,2) OR how to add nice little flourishy
bits to your juggling, beginners to advanced" - This workshop will explore
ways to create space in your 3 club pattern enabling you to get really
creative with flourishes, snappy throws and body moves mid-juggle. Intended
to be part workshop, part trick-share.

* Numbers Club Juggling with Mad (platinum) Martin - local hero
learning techniques for 4-5 clubs

* Club stealing with Andy and Andy the Derby Twins
Three clubs with four hands and hats and other things.

* Beginners club passing for those who can hold a cascade
Probably by me and mad or andy or someone else

Posted:gosh no replies or posts on here since 2005, reckon this is ready for a big bump.
TO ALL NOTTINGHAM FOLK
Now is the time for you to rise to your feet
wipe the spit from your face wipe those tears from your eyes

Summer is coming its nearly here, the clocks have gone forwards and its time to stop procrastinating and drum up some fire peeps, and drum up some drummers too.
i would like there to be a week or two gap from sending this and then get a First big meet of summer up and running, like mini convention for fields of fire peeps to kick start the interest after the off season.
as you may or may not be aware jesus is leaving nottingham and so i will be taking over the meet insofar as anyone runs it./
basically expect me + parrafin every week from now on + work being put into new website (fields of fire v3) wich will be simpler and easier to use.

what i need from you is
ideas about what you want
your media (vids photos etc)
you to turn up too and spread the good word of fire.

pm me, mail me get in touch all replies no matter how spurious welcome.

t'as been a long long time since last I saw you.
It is me but unfortunately I'm about to head off to France for 3 months and then move to Portsmouth! frown
Come down to the meet this Thursday, it's my last one before I leave so it's very important. Don't worry about your poi not having turned up - I have lots so you can borrow some smile
I'm going to send you a text as well (assuming your number is still the same) just incase you don't read this before tomorrow.

Jesus

Posted:We ususally gather near the pavillion or just to the right of it (facing the pavillion) where an area of tarmac drops down onto the field.
We usually meet up around 20:30 but I'm hoping to get down there earlier this time sound just turn up whenever you can. You can always call me if you can't find us smile

No problems with the lending of poi or the teaching we're quite happy help people extend their abilities or provide new ways of thinking about spining.

I'm going to want to see pictures as it progresses though the summer so take your cameras!

Wow :o Guildford really is wicked, I can't believe what I have missing out on all these years. I can only hope that the whole of Guildford is so cool!

Doesn't look like anyone has any interest in this thread anymore!
What a shame.

Well, I hope you've all had a great summer's worth of spinning evenings that have brought enjoyment to all those who attended.
Let's hope it makes it through the winter!
