Posted:Definitely! It's especially helpful to see what the moves look like when someone else does them.Unfortunately I haven't been able to persuade any of my friends to get really into it yet. A few have shown enough interest to master the basic weave, but nobody's persued it further.At least I've got this site to come to for inspiration. Don't know what I'd do without it!

Posted:I have one friend who is on my level, I do not know what I would do without him (J.T.) I have two other friends that try, but when I need to see what I look like I ask john to do it, because you don't know what it looks like from the outside till you see somebody else do it. We learn off of each other constantly. I think everybody needs a poi friend. If there is anybody near oklahoma that need a poi friend, you can email me (y'all can also do a search in the "meet others" section) santanatwo@yahoo.com

we eat and we drink and we smoke and we try!

Posted:I agree about having someone to poi with & learn from etc... A good way to find someone locally is to post details of a spin meet in a local juggling shop or student hangout/alternative bar etc I have done this in Nottingham and have several new poi friends. Be prepared for it to take a while for word to spread and keep turning up! Good luck. For anyone in the Nottm area we meet every Weds on The Forest Recreation Ground at sundown(ish) opp toilet block.As my mum always said, "seek and yea shall find."Onelove Thistlefirepixie

Posted:I think a strange this is happening in Ohio. Well that's sort of normal here. It seems that there about eight to twelve people,(at most an hour away from one another) that all have different degrees of skill. About eight of these twelve are all going camping this weekend and are going to meet for the first time. Up until this point we've all been talking through e-mail. I really can not wait!

So far it sounds as if the peolpe going camping are really into spinning, and at the very least have basic skills. Hopefully this will turn in to something. Wish us luck!

Posted:I agree, it's much better to have a friend spinning with you to help you pick new tricks up faster, it really helps if there's someone looking at your hands from a different angle to tell you what you're doing wrong.

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

lolMiss frog, if I were you, I'd go and spin all night long with Myst, I really would. Just keep him away from any thongs and any camel you might encounter. oops, did I ruin your rep again sweet one ?As for the baby it is as cute as you, blue with a sweet little hook and its first words were "gimme some hardcore transe mummy". However, he recently asked a new enigmatic sentence "where is the kerdane" I beleive the lack of father's presence is leading him to dangerous habbits...
