I think. So I now that people around you are twirling and stuff.

Posted:Well, technically she lives somewhere else, cause she moved in with her b/f, but her family's in Fourqueux (where I used to live biggrin ) I can try to get in touch with her and ask her if they're going to any soon.

Posted:hey zavie, i live next to paris, in the 92, in garches. i've been to a few 'spin meets' in paris, and some were dissapointing but some were good fun.

im not going to be there till the 15th of september, but there are spinners in paris,

sometimes on champs de mars, or on the quais de seine at pont neuf, or in front of l'institut du monde arabe: on weekends there is stuff going on.

im going to be meeting a lot of poisters when i get back, so ill keep posted in this thread.

a plus

Posted:I was just in Rodez (well south of, North of Tolouse) for 3 weeks

Does anyone know of anyone who spins down the SW? I know there is a fire community there. There was a fete with a fire show on (friends told me) and there is a poi shop in Rodez!

Posted:Cant really help you Pink but im in bram near carcassone and im finding it very difficult to find anyone spinning fire evn to the fact that im not allowed to light up(tod by the marie) but i have heard there is a group of people in toulouse and a juggling shop in toulouse called psychojongleur and they are quiet helpful. I have heard that sete is good and vallon (from mand).
I havent lit up for a month now it hurts

Posted:The Marie told you you can't light up? Just go out of the town and do it!
My dad's local marie dont mind at all. Infact none of them do near my dad;s. I was spinning in the town square of Pampelonne at a BBQ and no one minded! Although the Gendarmie did look at me curiosly.

Posted:yeh in think thats whats its all about they are just harvesting as well so no one wants to burn their fields down.. All the sunflowers are dead.. Apparently last year was really bad with temps in the 40's and people dieing all over the place this year isnt as bad but still there are fires all over the place and you see the planes buzzing around..
What i have heard is that you are allowed to light up if there is concrete floor and a fountain nearby as in the parks in the cities but out in the sticks its an issue

Posted:The shop was a little expensive but does a fair bit. Plus it sells cool clothes...ubbangel

It's off the main square and is called "look and roll" It has two shops the one on the right does the poi and the one right opposite on the left does the cool clothes.

Whats the name of the place close to Rodez?

Posted:Um... scenery wise...

Cordes sur ciel and Najac are the most amazing.

I was near Carmaux in a place called Masmajou. Nearest town was Naucelle or Tanus.

But i do recommed checking out Cap D'ecouverte. Massive sports centre which is amazing and brand new!
