Mr Fish o'flame is right, I think we need to have a new thread for the second meet especially as it won't let me edit the title of the old one rolleyes



So here's the open invitation to everyone who reads this to join us in Falmouth. It seems most agree on the weekend of 6th-8th or there round abouts (I'll be there from the 5th) and we're camping



here at the same campsite



and spending our nights



here on Maenporth Beach



If you wanna see what the last meeting looked like visit



Soton Firespinners to download the video



If anyone wants to come just turn up but we'd appreciate a post or two to let us know so we can be sure the campsite can expect a certain number of people although they have lots of space and no doubt would fit us in without a problem.



Its a winner, you know it makes sense, be there or be a square poi and besides what else have you got to do you bunch of weirdos!?! wink



And if we want it better I think we should be a little better prepared for funness, does anyone have one of those massive tents like army ones? Or would anyone be interested in piling into a couple of chalets perhaps? And maybe a generator for tunes on the beach *cough*strugz*cough* for when the bones start showing through Mags' fingers?! wink Any other suggestions folks? Could people all try to bring a little wood with them please? Even a few sticks each will make a massive difference but if Brad wants to use his 100% work discount again that'd be well cool biggrin hug2



So who's-a comin? bounce bounce2 grouphug devil kiss beerchug wow hehe ubbrollsmile juggle weavesmiley ubblove biggrin ubbidea sunny

falmouth is rocking hard so many wicked ppl are here (talking on the past tense of thursday) we had 19 ppl at the beach last night cant wait for tonight should be maaaaaaaaaassive

ps mech smells like pee

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Anyway.... I can now safely say I know a few more HOPPERS....... I can't put any names to faces.... but still.
Was fun all the same..... and I got my first ever burn in weavesmiley
Journey back was nightmare tho mad2. A30 major traffic jams (and marmalades). M5 major tailbacks..... and me taking a rather interesting diversion through Glasto and Bath.

Ah well see you all later.. back to the asylum.

thanks for a lovely weekend, esp Mags for the use of his house - cheers man.

Hope to see a lot of you at the Bristol, where you'll all be converted to contact poi and wibbling no doubt!

there's nothing quite as fulfilling as a tasty airwrap
