Posted: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



The list currently looks like this and I'll keep this post updated for ease of looking for links and names etc

Posted:Excelent EXCELENT night! biggrin sunny

Even though I was only there friday frown



I normally post on Spherculism.com but no-one ther seems to have gone. Maby I should start posting here.



I think my intake was too high beerchug ubbloco and interaction too low, but hey, live and learn.



I'm afraid I have very poor memory for names/faces so if there is anyone here who went on friday please tell me something I might remember you by ( where you were sitting etc...)



You might remember me as the guy who lit up his brand new mokeyfists, went for the first spin of the night, and finished by lobbing one miles down the beach (and into the sea). redface

MASSIVE thankx to the guy who found it! IOU man.



Or the guy who on his last spin of the night finished by smacking the forementioned monkeyfist into his forehead! ooooops



Or the guy with the baby nana



Hope every one else had at least as good a time as me!

And got home safely.meditate



Roll on Falmouth III excl peace



PS: I have some video of some guy (possibly Oli judging from Jem's description) doing wicked slick stuff with firepoi on friday night, came out quite cool. The guy had a mass of dreads in a kind of bag thing and was doing poi right near the group on the seaward side. If this sound like you I will gladly post you the clip on vid for free.

(So long as I can keep the original for inspiration smile)

That's because Stubbington, where the road was closed, isn't in Gosport!

Anyway, you've already lost some time the night before - quarter of an hour shouldn't have made much difference tongue ubblol

First things first, the mention of this being mine, or steps or anyones is bull. It's "ours" pure and simple, it's all those who came and made it the wicked time it was. My organising went as far as booking a campsite and posting a couple of links so please no praise for me lest you praise the entire group. thankx

So on with praising! biggrin

Fistly everyone grouphug What a fuckin wicked time, I'm not sure if I met everyone but I tried my damndest to! If I didn't I'll make sure I do next time biggrin
Sorry I didn't get to do my workshop, was well up for it Sunday but as my lovely beautiful sock poi died saturday night and it was pissing it down all day Sunday before I left it just didn't happen. Next time fo sure. At least I got to teach some stuff anyway tho and learnt tons more from you guys than I think I could ever teach.

Strugz - Man you get beter everytime I see you, how the hell I missed your workshop I don't know frown Next time grab me a lead me over to learn please wink

Rossco - Glad you enjoyed your birthday, your face was full of smiles all day, infact all weekend. You is a dude and the perfect car partner. You drive next time tho, you knows it clart wink hug hug2

Beth, Vix, Pink, you're all welcome to share my tent anytime, although I'll insist it's all under one duvet wink And Beth, if you think you're taking my blankie home with you you can think again. It's protected by Duncan bye-law and thus any stealing will be punished by a dip into the ocean against your will ubbangel

Mags - You are the perfect host, what better place could we have been entertained, fed, smoked and watered so well. Next time I'll have to book a spot for overnight stays hug

Laura - hug Thanks for sharing your imagination with me for so long with the contact poi, it's taking over my life now. Next time I see you I'll be spinning without even touchin the strings ubbangel By the way, your staff is in Bens possession, somehow it got packed into my car with his stuff so he'll get it to you soon.

And to everyone else I can't remember cuz I just got out of bed, including Step who was enjoying himself waaaay to much to be here, and great big grouphug You're all freakin lovely, you're all so inspirational, you're all brilliant to spent a sunny weekend with, you're all welcome to my house anytime and you're all gonna make the next one happen fo sure.

Bring on the next Falmouth (potentially on tour), bring on the Brizzol meet, bring on the castle meet.

I can only meerly express myself with emoticons that aren't nearly smiley, bouncey, huggy or anything else enough.

Posted:Well!!!!! what can i say what a weekend!!!!!!!!!!!

Had a wicked weekend so glad we came down on thursday to meet everyone early(also to get the mothership of all tents into the campsite, would never have got in otherwise)

Helen realy enjoyed her birthday down with you guys it was the perfect location and weather.

We all learnt loads of new stuff from oli's profound ability to get a pair of womens socks tangled up to the upmost then with a few flicks and twists untangle them and make it look so easy to rob's strange aray of toys that i never new was possible.
Got some great ideas from frodo about setting up a business and learn't that levellers songs can be played in such a way that they sound better than the original!!! nice one mags!!!
Ben and strugz saturday night with their staff performance was the highlight for me, brilliant guys you give us all something to aspire to.
ross's ability to roll bifters more than anyone i know
has inspired me too(maybe one day i'll be able to get as mashed as you m8)
Bloody ell i could go on forever!!!!
To sum it up had a bloody marvelous time with a load of random people on a bloody nice beach, good effort everyone cant wait to meet you all again
(note to open savings account for falmouth trips)

I'd happily send all the full-res photos on a CD to someone or I'll happily put together a CD/DVD with all the fotage and photos. Be warned though although my computery skill are probably good enought to put together a DVD with menus and the like my artistic talent is around zero so it wouldn't be pretty!

I'm off down the pub now but I'll be thinking about it over my pint.
