Posted:Gr. Just wrote a really over-verbose rant, and then lost it in computer incompetence.

Essentially, I want loads of people to come down and have a spinning weekend at my place in Sevenoaks for the weekend of the 28th - 30th. There are two free bedrooms and lots of mattresses, and twenty litres of paraffin to be burned. You're welcome for as brief or as long a stay as you want - just pop in to say hi or stay for a month!

We're about twenty minutes walk from beautiful Knole Park, which is full of deer and good places to spin, and London is only a short journey away. It would be wicked if a load of people could stay for the whole weekend, giving us plenty of time to rant around and learn each other's tricks before heading up into the park on night-time fire missions.

I cook (generally edible) vegetarian food, we've got decks set up in the living room... how can you resist?

Look forward to seeing you soon.

Posted:Yep, gotta agree with joe on this one... should be a wicked wkend.
Would be nice if lots of people came down- i'd love to meet a few of you!
What better things have people got to do on a cold november wkend?! Surely not a lot!
Hopefully see you all there.

Posted:Wow! Well, this is shaping up to be a really good weekend. Absolutely EVERBODY is more than welcome. Bring friends, family, household pets and random strangers...

Canterbury is 44 miles from Sevenoaks, if you were driving you could do it in about 40 minutes as it's almost all on motorways.

I live here, a ten minute walk from the Bat & Ball train station, and about half an hour from Sevenoaks main station.

Hooray! I'll get more details on once we're a bit nearer the time, and once more people know whether they can come or not.

Hugs to you all

Posted:Mate, don't know where everyone's going to sleep, what with all the CAKE I'm going to make... unless you don't mind actually sleeping IN the cake?

I have been working for a baking product supply company, and one of the perks has been the liberation of a 15kilo bag of muffin mix, which all has to get eaten very soon... in fact, forget the spinning, let's have a muffin party!

The space thing: probably sleep about thirty people, if they didn't mind floor space and brought sleeping bags. Beds probably ought to go to couples first, though if any of you would really prefer a bed (if you have difficulty sleeping, or anything like that) then let me know.

I can't wait. Yippee!

Strange how that when I was 17, loads of booze and cute boys were party essentials, now 10 years on my idea of a top party is finger food and flames

Posted:Confusing as that logic may be, I find myself totally swayed by it. BamBam, you get a bed, and you can have my teddy if you promise to be nice to him.

Simian, we've already agreed that you're sleeping in the cake.

Kat, if you can make it (please please come!) then I can guarantee finger-food, flames, loads of cute boys (I'll go out looking for some now, bring them back here for you!) and enough booze to drown a goat in.
