Posted:great to see such a large number of slackers making the effort to meet up for a spin last night... or in true burnt toast style, doing stupid poses with glowtoys, drinking lots of cider, heckling the short one so much that he has to stop spinning! and generally being abusive. Go Toast!

Strugz and Fluffy, you were missed!

Posted:hey all, i have not long been in guildford, and only started with poi last weekend after a friend who i used to live with dragged me along to give it a go... oddly enough i loved it... though i am currently using a pair of socks and some juggling balls as my poi!
Anyway, who should i speak to, call, email etc about info on the thursday meets? I would defintiely like to join in, a social atmosphere always makes learning a more enjoyable.
Cheers
Mike

Posted:Hi Mike, not sure I managed to speak to you but glad to hear you enjoyed it!

Paul/Durbs is the man to talk to. You can either PM him on here or have a look at the contacts page of www.burnttoast.co.uk for his details.

I'm still using juggling balls in socks by the way, and I've been doing it for 4 years! biggrin

Posted:I'm actually going to stop being slack and come along this week for the first time ever! I'll be the one hovering around looking shy (although I might be dragging a friend or two along so may be a couple of us standing looking shy!)
Can't wait to meet you all and learn some new bits (and probably find out that my home-taught technique is totally weird and wrong!!)
See you soon! wave
