Dom





=================================

info update

Cost - 15

Dates - 19th - 21st August 2005

Location - Shrewsbury Agricultural Showground, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, UK.

=================================



UPDATE 23rd July 2005



Tickets now on sale, go to the website or book via telephone on 07814 018 091



=================================



Update - 5th Jan 2005

The site is now up and running at http://www.playfestival.co.uk
there is a forum included so everyone can contribute to the ideas, concepts and development of the festival as a whole. It wouldn't survive without "everyones" involvement so feel free to log on, register and let us know what you'd like from us while you're there.

And to think non of this would have started if I hadn't gotten into HoP and realised how wonderful this scene is, thank you HoP even if you did remove the link from my sig without telling me why, or even telling me rolleyes hug



Update 31st January 2005



Tickets can now be Pre-booked, up to five adult and five free childrens (u14's) can be booked, once they are released for sale you will be given a set time period to buy them before they will be offered to the public. We're still unsure what the time period will be but it will be a reasonable amount of time, such as 6 weeks, from them being released before they will be put back into the ticket pool. Everyone will be advised by email and in various public announcements of the release date well before they're out.







=====================================================

I have been thinking for a while about organising an Object Manipulation (couldn't think how else to describe it!!) Convention sometime next year, and thought this would be the best place to get the ball rolling! (pun pun)



My idea is this......a mini festival for spinners/jugglers etc that's small and laid back enough to enjoy but big and organised enough to get the most out of. Maybe a band/dj or two in a tent, a fire show each night, weekend camping and most importantly lots of workshops, idea exchanges and fun for all the family. Easy going and fun are the objectives.



It wouldn't be poi based, it would be for all object manipulators from hat juggling to ribbon dancing and everything in between and to the sides so no pigeon holing or amimosity between arts will occur.



So what I'd like to know is if I organised, laid out capital etc for a proper weekend festival (Fri -> Sun) would I get enough interest and of course people attending? I obviously can't afford it by myself but if I put up the cash the more people I expect to come the cheaper I could cost it out per person.



I'd like to hope it'd cost no more that 25 each, but obviously the more people we expect to come the cheaper we can make it, I'd much rather it was a tenner than 25! (please note attendance would be a capped limit for safety and comforts sake)



All I'd be looking for is to break even or turn a small profit so it can be piled back into the next one making it even better and also cheaper.



As they say on poipoipoi's website......"it's not capitalism.......it's spherculism"



It would be in a decent sized feild with a remote location so there would be no townie trouble but close enough for easy access from major routes.



I figure if it's in the midlands area it's probably the easiest for everyone geographically although of course it depends what venues we can find and what the consensus is.



If this is the sort of thing folks would like then yell, but please be a serious yell as I'm realistically trying to sort numbers so I can get accurate costing done. There's also a poll I've set up HERE so vote in it if you can please.



If you think it's a little OTT compared to what is generally available such as Spitz and various annual juggling conventions please say so, all opinions have the same importance smile but don't forget to vote



Thanks folks! I hope you like the idea and can help me to make it a success for all those who come *fingers crossed*



If you have any info you think I might be interested in, ie quality venues (any free party goers out there that know good locations?) any ideas for during the convention or feel there's something individual you could offer I'd really appreciate hearing about it either in this thread or by PM. It's the only way I can make sure I'm giving people what they want!



Looking forward to your comments biggrin



Thanks for reading this rather long post hug

ok I've got you all on the list for new badges/old bages/replacement bages/greedy pig badges.



Greedy Pig Badges?

Yay!!

I get Three!!

Although you do deserve two at least...



But can't you see? This is what I was aiming at! Everyone will feel left out because they don't have three badges, thus making everyone equal.



I'm doing it for the good of the people. Well, someone has to have more than everyone else, And I took it upon myself to stop you all argueing. Aren't I nice? wink

Posted:Whoot whoot. I've got my arse in gear and I'm comming to play.

And I thought I better think about what I can do to help out,
And I thought I could run some manipulation workshops.
But which ones?
So heres the list of possibles, make your votes and nag me enough and I'll run that one.
(all of them is not the correct answer smile tongue )

I'm definately going to do:
1 Ball Contact - Contact Juggling is not juggling, but it is Easy - This workshop will show you how!
(the whole point of my books!!) for Complete beginners/ up to all levels as there is a lot of new concepts/material.

Then which of the rest do you people want?
1) Musicality with manipulation for any prop - If you give me a sound system for 1.5 hours -Complete beginners/ up to all levels re-run of Ueberpoi with a few improvements and any prop.

2) Possibly a manipulation battle workshop and a battle, but we need a lot of planning to work out whether this is practical. all levels re-run of Ueberpoi.

Or I can run workshops of all levels Beginners - intermediate - advanced in any of these:
3) Staff/ stick contact
4) 1 ball Contact
5) Multiball contact
6) Club Swinging inc snakes
7) 1 to 3 Club Manipulation and juggling

And finally I could do:
8) Body poppin waves
9) 3 ball juggling mixed with contact
10) Miscelaneous manipulations - Coins pens friut elbows etc
11) Poi
12) Isolations with everything
13) Staff/ Stick twirling

Smiles and see you in the sunshine

Numbers 3, 9 and 10 coin manipulation could come in handy on those poor days


A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

(Oh, and I'd be down for some poppin' workshops. And maybe a personal glide workshop from Cole. wink )

But mostly I will be sitting at the top of the hill under a shady tree and looking down at all of the cows. smile

Oh, and there will be raveball. ubbangel

Was that what I said Durbs? Did I say "body popping with CJ"? No! :P

And if you check the site you're not down for running a body popping and CJ workshop at all. Just a CJ one. So there.

Nah, obviously there's that, but body popping without balls is also good, especially for those of us who lack the CJ ability to worry about other parts of their body while doing it smile

Drew, could you teach me - ermm - everything you've learned in the last 10 years is probably asking a bit too much - so how about Uberpoidancing 101.2?!



Not sure what number on the menu that falls under, so I might just follow you around and learn that way instead.
