Posted:looks like there might be a bit of rain on friday but should be ok on saturday and sunday (according to the bbc website anyway)
just hope the river isn't overflowing coz that would certainly prevent spinning next to it frown although wire wool spinning would look good reflected in the water biggrin

Well if I don't get in I will probably be outside the main gate all weekend playing with red and black stripey sock poi so come and say hi and give me sympathy!! (or even better sneak me out a wristband or something....)

Hope everyone has fun!

Posted:Well what a good weekend that was! as much fun as I had the best bit had to be 50 Cent getting booed off the stage and the bottles of piss thrown at him, did he get a chair too?? oh well laughs all around!

As mint sauce said, swimhats possibly were needed first of all but luckily things cleared up enough though. Far as spinning goes it was great to see so many spinners there and congrats to everyone for convefrting as many people as possible, nice one vixen! hey everyone, watch out for this like 10 yr old boy who got the weave pretty much on his first attempt, hes going places! Thanks to all the your HoP'ers that made me feel very welcome, tobi, fleacee, vixen, grace, meerkat,grot,nate and any others who i havent mentioned cheers! apart from letting me just fall asleep at 5am in a chair on one of the coldest nights there! that fire was so damn cool, if anyone is interested in other suitable fuel that can last up to 4 hours after wood etc has gone out we're your guys,from frog teddy's to glo sticks!
take care guys, hope to see you all next year!

Posted:That was a awsome weekend, im just sad it ended.
I made so many amazing friends, not as many poi people, i kind of got bored of doing poi and wanted to have fun and listen to the music which i paid to do.
But hats off to all the spinners i spent to long teacheing people things on thursday specially paul but hes becoming amazing at it now. I met this guy last night on a random wonder who could do an amazing airwrap into some sort of hyperlopp butterfly... amazing stuff.
So after meeting the hives and being wowed by so many bands im shatterd and i stink so im going to retire

lol r.i.p freddie.

Posted:how did i miss everyone?! well ok i saw pyro will and mint sauce briefly one night.. and someone with a pointy hat and pretty pink poi that i couldn't catch up with as he was wondering around through the crowd...
had my glowstick poi but only span in the campsite which is probably half the reason i didn't find many of you!
when was this big poi session in the arena though?
anyway i had much fun, great weekend as always.

Posted:yeh it was erm sorta outside the carling tent? u know if u look towards the stage there was these large metal tripod things for hanging on big lights there were 2 one on the left one on the right like 70 m from the stage each, well we were a bit behind the left tripod, it wasnt even an organised gathering, can't quite remember how it started, i know me and tobi were walking to see 50cent get bottled off and lost prophwets ns tuff and i think we just started to spin (after tobi got sent back to his tent for carrying illegal materials ha ha "its just my knob down there guys" ha ha) suddenly quite a few people were there, shame you couldnt see it penguino!
i had chocolate back in my tent! would it have seen a bit suspicious? hey come back to my tent for some.....chocolate wink
