All in Brighton:I don't know how I came to be organiser!Anyway, a meet up on the level would be great.Give me a chance to get back to Brighton and get my head together and we can arrange a session - keep an eye on 'events, performances & gatherings'. What day is best for everyone? Bear in mind I can't do any weekends 'til November...

Yay, I just found my poi mentor, about an hour ago. It was ten-thirty in the evening, Warwick time, I was twirling in the Piazza and this guy runs up to me, says "I have a set of those at home" and proceeds to reel off more moves than you can shake a (lit) stick at.Yay!------------------

N8 has a poi friend, actually, six of them.My better half (the Martain) and I started spinning a few years back and since then we've taught a whole bunch of our friends, and they have taught their friends, and off the top of my head I can think of six people who i spin with on a regular basis.And, trst me, Its a very special thing to spin with a group of people, any one of the vets. should agree.------------------Care of other people's approval and you become their prisoner.Live fully, Rave wholly.Fluid are the movements of my strings...

for a while my shadow has been by best poi friend. feeling lonely in a circle of light i turn my back to the sun and she appears. i love her very much! she doesn't really like to come out at night though. i recently booked my "friend" here in jersey to video tape me at night so i can see the fire spinning in the dark. i found someone in the meet others who live in the town next door no reply you gotto love jersey. in a state with the highest population i know there's genuine spinners out there or someone who wants to learn i'm here for ya'll. and if not i'm moving to england!oh thank goodness for home of poi!!!!!!!!love and light sara

Earlier in the thread I made mention of a get together here in Ohio. Well, out of the eight people, six showed up. Our timeing was totally off. The first night only three stuck it out all night, and through the next day. Twelve hours total! Between three people 11:00 pm to 9:00am we went through 5 gallons of Kero. It RULED

! on the Second night the other half joined in, but shamefully I passed out. But at least I passed out on the beach trying to hang. One thing is clear. In Ohio we have a home for fire twirling and a audience of hundreds. No one would come up and talk to us so it was as if we were all alone. Occationaly someone would walk by and que us in that all around the lake people were watching. Then one guy pionted out every time we lite up people would start to cheer from the woods. We couldn't hear them over the fire but once it was pionted out you couldn't miss it. Knagi noticed that across the lake a group of people would hold up lite lighters, if we took to long to light up again. It was beyond anything I could ever describe, or was even expecting. So the lesson here is if you are anywhere near Ohio during the camping months and want to torch up, we got a place with lots of room, and we have an audience (wheather you want one or not) that would love to see you go off!------------------Nothing good ever comes from hanging out with "normal" people.
