Posted:yes folks, it's drawing closer, the best juggling convention in the world! (according to Derek.)

The 18th-26th September, Woodhouse Park, Bristol. It's going to be great and I hope to see a lot of spinners there advancing the opinion of poi amoungst jugglers (that's gonna happen!). weavesmiley juggle hug

Posted:Back from London and a bit less censored (Naughty swearing Garth on a family based Forum.) but not capable of doing instructions yet,

I finish work around half fiveish but I may see If I can finish Earlier.
This is assuming There isn't a emergency and I have to stay Late.

So coordinate with yourselfs if this is usefull to anyone and I'll grab people and take them up around 6ish. Also a estimate of how much stuff you hasve as I may need to empty the car of the tents + stuff from Glastonbuy / Glade festival / falmouth.

It's a mess as laura will attest.

Posted:Crap I'm sure I posted instructions here on how to get there by bus.

But it involves a 2 mile walk. (half a mile in cornish miles I belive wink ) which is as close as I could get you..

As I said I'm happy to give lifts but not sure when I'm finishing...

I'll post instructions in a bit.

Posted:.. because i'm a retard who can't spell! (spank self) it's in kingsdown towards the university from temple meads. doesn't mean a lot to me but i know where the uni is + there's a big park nearby called brandon hill. umm is garthy gonna have enough room in his car for all of us though? we may have to mission on the bus which would mean heading straight for the convention... although i'd rather do this together than on my own anyway! smile

hmmm.... umm
