Posted:Hi Tanya, welcome to HOP. Dunno anyone in Shepparton or Benalla that does poi. I met a guy in Albury once, and I've met a few poisters from Bendigo. Actually, I think there are a lot of spinners around Bendigo, but I'm not aware of any at HOP. Have you tried Boho?
Suggest trying to get to a Melb meet-up. They are pretty good. Check the Melbourne workshops thread in the Events, Performances & Gatherings section. Also confest, the spiritual home of fire in southern australia, will be on again near Denny, at Easter. Lots of poisters there
If we as members of the human race practice meditation, we can transcend our fear, despair, and forgetfulness. Meditation is not an escape. It is the courage to look at reality with mindfulness and concentration. Thich Nhat Hanh

Posted:I had the same problem PiercedTan. I about 2 hours south of melbourne. I was stuck with learning from the lessons on this site. After a short while I sniffed out another poister and staffer. Now we have a regular spin on Friday nights on tha Beach @ Cape patterson.
Talk to people you know about the poi..... you may be suprised....
