Hi can anybody help Im travelling back to england around the 10th of sept and i am looking to meet up with some poisters in or around southampton (as i have to be at the boat show) and then on to the bristol juggling convention..
My story so far is that im in the south of france and try as i might i cannot find any poisters at all???? There are many fetes here but no jugglers or poi etc etc (im near carcassone/Toulouse) i have contacted the juggling shop in toulouse and they said there are no meets at the moment maybe everyone is on holiday??
So what i am trying to arrange is to meet some of the people that are here on this site and have a few burns or even get a few burns. Can anybody offer some advice on places to meet and where to stay whilst im there. Just so i dont scare anyone off as im from Dubai i am english and did go to the college in southampton but it was a long time ago and i havent been in the uk for a long time...
Also whats happening for the bristol convention is it all camping (which i have no probs with just dont have a tent!) or is there places to stay in the area?
cheers
g confused

rubbish.. lots of rain.. and then just for good measure.. a little bit more rain..

we're having a bit of a cr*p summer, last year we were having a heat wave, this year a small village was practically wiped out in Cornwall due to flash floods.. very unpredictable, but best bring your waterproofs.

I honour you as an aspect of myself..

There are a few spinners in Sete (near Montpellier) I believe

Argh i hate rain.. I live in a nice extreemly dry climate and it had been over 9 months since i had seen rain when i got to france.. Can you all organise a sun dance for the winter..
Thanks Kat I have heard of sete and vallon but its too far at the moment as i have to be at work in the morning as i am restoring a house so getting there takes too long..

Some one once told me a poister is a pimp.....why do you need a pimp????

Is it the Truth?
Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
