Im from South Yorkshire, the Rotherham Poiinthepark starts again soon, the next one is Sat 27th March, if you look in events on here or the PiP site you'll find the relevant info, if u wanna meet us and have a spin.

i live about 15 mins away from Leeds, but on the other side to Bradford .. yeah there doesnt seem to be that many spinners near Leeds frown- tend to find some people at nights out like Cabbage in Leeds and other techno/psy-trancee type partees. seems to be sht loadsa people spinning whenever I go out sheffield way but that int that often. rolleyes if its not too far out come to Gecko at the west indian centre next month if your wanting to hook up with other spinners, there always seems to be a lot of juggling type people turn up to it, and i wont miss it. wave

I reckon I will - I get free climbing and cinema I know that much.. can even take 4 guests with me ubbrollsmile
so do you know many spinners in York? I know a couple of guys that go to uni there that are into fire poi type stuff. Youd think york'd be full of it, like loads of events going off all the time cause all I can remember from going to york as a child was all the juggling and fire breathing. but I never really hear of anything happening there so much - maybe thats just cause i dont know the right people. let me know if theres gonna be anything going off there anyway, cause id defo be up for coming down since i live so close(ish). weavesmiley

alien: apparently Ive been misinformed about Gecko which is a bit of a p!sser but Ill post if theres anything like it happening soon that few few of us are going to tongue

I know that a few of my sisters friends in town are spinners, but i don't really have any contact with them at all.
I am not aware of any juggly/firey things going on in town at all.
