Posted:I'm starting up a Staff/Poi/Whatever night in Portsmouth. Have a kool venue, just need to pick a day.
Will probably start wednesday 19th.

Let me know if you are interested.

Bambam said she spoke to a HoP'er who was at porchester castle last weekend. Who was that?
We were doing it in the far corner, facing the stage.

Cheers for the heads-up. Events sounded a bit grand
Ill repost once I confirm the date then. Cheers.

Ive agreed the Workshop. Its a disused factory behind St Marys Church. The room is a bit small, but high and we can use their decks. And Im told there is a roof and the back car park we can use.

Posted:Well I work at Avalon, and we sell poi/staff/etc.
So I have first contact with many new poiers.
I intend to indoctrinate them immediately into my cult. did I say that, or just think it

The Fawcet Inn has quite a few poiers. When the side bar is not being used for drug fuelled parties, you can just go in and start swinging.

Pop into Avalon any time, Ill be the one who is being paid to practice staff all day.
Get you a discount and everything.

You ought to rephrase it so it only applies to Jephyre unless you meant it for everyone.
I did similar a while back with an offer to design something for someone and got swamped with requets. Then some silly australian resurfaced the thread at xmas and I got swamped again.

Posted:Me me me....Ooooh moment of fame, moment of fame. It was me at Portchester Castle, we saw you guys in the corner just before the fireworks kicked off. We came over to see you, and get away from the crowd, skin up & have a quick spin with my comet poi. Did love to see the way it finished at 11-ish and was empty by about 3 mins past.
My mates Laura & Fiona were spinning fire in front of the stage (which was cool), to some crappy 60's rock & roll band (Oh well you can't pick the venues I suppose).
Avalon is wicked BTW - Many a happy smoking incident followed a quick mission to Avalon for gauzes, rizla, bongs etc....Happy daze

Posted:Nah fuck itif anyone comes in and mentions HoP Ill give them a discount. If they can get the words alien and fox into a sentence without alerting the manager, or other staff, then Ill give you a staff discount.
(now that I may regret!)

Small Boy
KoolI was the bald guy who kept dropping his staff, and got a lovely branding scar just on the soft tender flesh inside my elbow, from the poi.
Did I sell you the comet poi? Didnt see you playing. You should have come and had a go.

Didnt meet Laura of Fiona, but I got Naomis number. Are L. and F. local? Im going to run at the Workshop next week - even if it is a small group once I have agreed a time (I clash with Yoga at the mo)

When the fireworks kicked off I gave the video camera to a mate and said Quick film me!
Grabbed my staff, lit up, ran to the middle of that field and had a play.
All the way home he was telling me how cool it looked.
When we get back the conversation went something like:

Alienfox: Eeer..why is there nothing on the tape? Did you press the record button?
Mike: Is there a record button?

Muppet!
Serves me right for being such a tart!

C@ntus
So you offered to design stuff for people, great I need a flyer for PiP (Poi in Portsmouth!)

Am I going to piss people off calling it that?

Posted:You can't beat a good idea PK. Everyone just wants to join in before it explodes worldwide. That's my theory anyhoo.

I don't do flyers. Well I haven't done any before. And I'm not to reliable anyway. Look at that for salesmanship I still owe loads of people stuff form ages ago. If I get through my back log and you still want something designing then we can discuss it.

People never ever offer me money - that's another problem.....

So far PIP = Poi in the park (original, London), Poi in the Piazza (Warwick uni), Poi in Paris and Poi in Portsmouth!

Posted:Yeah, Naomi was the juggler that kept dropping stuff and setting the grass on fire (Woman after my own heart).
Laura & Fi are Gosport girls and Laura wants to know where and when.
She also said she'd drop into Avalon at nearest opportunity. No you didn't sell me my poi, I bought them up here in Camden, and it was dark when I was spinning.
PS - that wasn't a staff it was half a tree.
All Cool?

Jpoi in the park started in the north back in december last year after we spread the word for people to meet up and spin, funnily enough it was a very cold and snowy december afternoon around 2pm and sudenly after an hour of jumping and spinning in the snow there was maybe 20+ of us getting very wet and cold, but it was so much fun so we have done it every month since, london was a knock off by dom and glass and carrey 3 of my HOP buddies (*big northern hugs*) romour has it that there was a PIP in canada, even NYC held a one man PIP on the same day as clapham, anyway dom has renamed the bi monthly meet to some thing else, but its good to hear that the PIP thing is going off every where, would be good to see some footage and pics from some of these events. I so would love to goto to PIP paris but have no way to fund a trip after this past weekend, man i need to find some money arghh. all sorts of weird variations to make poi in the *** lol its kewl.
any way enjoy poi meets every where, its just the best thing ever, i have met so many nice people over the past few months, you know who you are guys.

cantus* damn another post in the social* what am i doing?... lol i am allways in the events section, lucky i came in here i spotted cassandras post for davy's departing, aww will be sad to see him go.
oh well looks a good future ahead, thats where i am heading right now.....
take care guys

Poi in the......popular clubwear shop.....

Yea, pays crap. But who cares. I have been doing poi since eer..novemberish.
Staff eer not sure, about 3 months. A very nice man (called Dave I believe) gave me my first staff lesson in the Viaduct (Vaxhall). Ive got the basics, but really need to skill share a bit hence PiPortsmouth.
Also Im a bit limited by what moves I can practice in the shop.
Just started practising double staff after the sage videos. (Go girl )

Small Boy
Shame Laura and Fi dissapeared so fast.

PS - that wasn't a staff it was half a tree

What ours? We had a 4 and a 5. And my first burn was with a saturated potassium chloride solution.

I've just seen the roof of the venue I want to use, and it's massive

Posted:Poi'd - depends. Was it full of gimps dressed in trainers, white jeans, Kappa/Adidas jackets and caps when you were round these parts? Only three weeks left to go now...

Alienfox - Haven't tried doubles yet, been too busy trying to get the hang of single staff. Meeting other people is definitely the best way to learn. I picked up so many new tricks at PiP London just from watching people.
