If you want to meet up with any smelly hippy fire spinners in bristol post something to ask when and where people are meeting up. most people are quite nice and will happily help you or if thats not your thing ask me and i'll abuse you for no reason biggrin



p.s. Normally we meet up on sunday 2:30-5pm at the Student union, Queens Road, Clifton (But this only runs in term time)

Oh yeah b4 you ask no you don't need to be a student

Posted:Not that i'm in Bristol anymore but,...

Monday nights is juggling club in Horfield reform church up on Muller Rd.

Other than that...Bristol is slack city. During the summer the gang normally hang out in St Andrews park in the evenings.

My piece of advice - just call people and organise things yourself. Call Tim or Conor or Oli and say, "oi slack hippies you meeting St Andrews park tonight at 7?" and they'll say, "uh..yeah ok" and voila!

Unless they all run away when they see me coming, which is possible wink

Posted:Hey all,

I've recently moved to Bristol and am temporarily heading up a committee for events in Victoria Park (Windmill Hill, Bedminster). Who here would be interested in a couple of regular circus skills events in the park next summer? Would like to get an idea of interest before i propose as an activity.

Also a couple of events are coming up that would welcome responsible fire spinners. September 6th there will be a park event with music, bands, stalls and all round fun-times. If you make poi / staff etc and are interested in selling your wares on the day get in touch. Also anyone who would like to donate their time to the community by offerring poi workshops would be appreciated. The other big event will be November 5th fireworks. Its rare (well coming from London anyhow) for a bonfire night to have an actual bonfire!! And it would be a lovely place for firespinners.

Send me a PM or email if you are interested in being involved

:-)

Posted:Ok Bristol people, I have a mission.

For the past two years, What with holding a regular job, and writing books Drew hasn't been feeling the urge to juggle lots, and he'd like to again.

He's just about to come back from the most inspirational EJC ever, so he'll be feeling some urges when he gets back, and with me around, I can see him getting the urge through osmosis. He's taking some time out of his work (Summer helps) in order for us to get a huge chunk of the new book to the next stage, and I think this is the perfect opportunity to fill some time with juggle breaks...

If possible, I'd like to get a few people together now and again this week in order to get try and get him back into the swing of things once more. All it takes is a little socialising in places where we can juggle/film/photograph with like minded people.

Anybody up for helping this cause? I don't like seeing Drew get down because he really wants to juggle, but doesn't have the inclination. I feel I can help him, and I really want to. He's done loads for me in the past, now it's my turn to give something back smile

Posted:I'd be up for a spin and a social. Victoria Park near me (Windmill Hill) is lovely. I'm currently the events organiser for the Victoria Park Action Group so if you would like to put together a wee spinny meet then happy to help, and I am sure we can put together regular meets in the park.

Also September 6th is the Victoria Park Fun Day, spinners and jugglers and people radiating cheer would be most welcome :-) I think UCOF and Skully going to be selling their hoops and giving a hoop workshop, there will be bands, booze and I do believe CAKE!!!
