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

(Sorry for not makig it out on sunday but things got on top of me)

Look at this map the star is where I think you'll get dropped off and you can see brandon hill to the left. It's about a five minute walk there. just ask people where park street is and then half way up swing to the left.

If it's raining you may have to come up with some other plan.

I'll pick you all up from brandon hill around 3ish

Make your way from the star on this map to brandon hil.

As I said I'll pick you up around 3ish.

The star is the bus station which I'm guessing you'll get dropped off at...

Now this may be more difficult but you can get a number 8 or 9 straight to Park Street. Look at pinks map to see how to get to brandon hill.

What? you want a map too?

OK then.. here is the botom of park street around the college green area (We used to spin there) get a bus to here...

Now my bus knowledge may be a bit crap so Check with the nice bus driver.

Somthing like "Excuse me, <Sweet smile> do you go to Park street College green?"

Then walk up park street and left for brandon hill

Posted:woooooooooooooooooooo!!! its still going on, but the main spinning contingent is now well on the way to froggie preparation. I would just like to say: what a GREAT week, thankyou to everyone in the world.

And once again, I've lost Mike. One of these days I'll just attach him to a piece of string around my finger so he doesn't get lost. hmmmm Mike-poi, interesting idea.
