Posted: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

Posted: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..
