Posted:it would be a goooood idea if it involved bonfires and bbq's.
It's ideal if someone owns or knows someone who owns their own field somewhere in the countryside which they dont mind having people camp on and burn on. ( i do (know someone) but i dont think it would be suitable, plus its miles away from anyone )

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.

Posted:In the UK it's called festivals and free parties. Things like glastonbury generally have a large HoP contingient. In the meantime there's various things happening, like Joe's 3 day parties (with indoor sleeping/showers etc, much more civilised than tents). In other countries people have tried poi holidays, can't remember his name but someone was organising them in the US/canada a while back

Posted:It already happens.

EJC, Burningman, Poi in the Parks... Get with the program lady. smile

I have HoP slumber parties at my house all the time. In fact, last summer was my "Summer of HoP" where I crashed at UK HoPers all summer long.

But I'd say that EJC was the closest to "summer camp" I've ever been to... Camp fires, hanging out on hilltops, even making sure to save seats for your friends in the mess hall...

Yup... happens all the time... biggrin


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:Id still go to a nice chilled out campsite affair though, I mean burning man etc are good parties n all but not the best place to focus on and learn some subtleties of poi.
