Posted:Hi Folks:Well I just ordered 2 sets of Poi and the poi video and now I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival here inSane Diego.I've been lurking a bit and you seem to have a really good group of people here. Please allow me to introduce myself to the Poi clan.I am a former juggler and former member of the "Several San Diegans Who Juggle" juggling club. My juggling partner and I were once know as "Spatial Olympics". I can juggle 3 and 4 balls and flash 5. I can juggle 3 and 4 clubs and pass 7. (Torches too) I also do devil sticks (Flaming and non)But, as time went on the folks in the SSDWJ finished school and went away, or got married and went away, or got arrested and were taken away, so I havn't juggled with other people for about 7 years now.

So I ordered 2 sets of Poi for me and my wife (Shh! Don't tell her, it's a secret) I think it's going to be something new and cool for us to learn together. And it's also something we can easily bring with us camping and backpacking. Should be fun!I just wanted to say "Hi" to everyone and introduce myself.

Posted:Somebody posted a thread called something like "OK everybody jump on the newbie" and one of these nutters *casts suspicious looks in the direction of Durbs, Bendy and SickPuppy* said they were disapointed because after seeing the title of the thread they were expecting a trampoline.It kind of spiralled wildly out of control after that.------------------C@ntusThere's only one way of life and that's your own.

Posted:Woo Hoo!The Poi showed up in the mail yesterday! Woot!I gently explained to my wife (who had no idea what was in teh package) that I found something new and FUN for us to do together (you should have seen the suspicious look I got). I showed her the 2 sets of poi I got and let her pick her favorite color.We watched the Art of Poi video and laughed in anticipation of how uncoordinated we would look compared to the video.So we tried it. We avoided smashing vases and such (we have a BIG main room at our house with really high ceilings, and it was cold and dark outside) after a few minutes of practice we were rolling on the floor laughing together at how inept we both looked (Thank goodness the practice poi are soft. I thumped myself way to many times).In any case, she was able to do a butterfly before me but I was able to do a low turn before her. Can't wait for the weekend when we're both home in the daytime so we can go outside and play.Tons Of Fun. BTW, Awesome job Malcolm! New Zealand to San Diego USA in 5 days! The video was really well done. It really explained what we needed to know in a way that's easy to understand and learn from. Thanks for the great products and great service.Dru Lee Parsec [who is no longer waiting on the doorstep for the mail man but instead is trapped in his cubicle thinking about spinning]
