Posted:biggrin so here's how it started...



Home of Poi Day is an idea generated by members of this site, where for one day a year all of us can meet each other in regional locations around the world to share our love of poi. Last thing i heard, plan's for this years event were focussed around October 30th. umm



The Sphercular Ball is an idea independntly generated by members of Spherculism.com to celebrate 1 000 members on Spherculism by (see above). By coincidence the proposed date is also the 30th October. (also co-incidentally HOP has recently achieved 10 000 members) umm



Poi In the Park in Sheffield is the longest established poi meet in the UK and is soon to get a new web host which means PK can make the website even better. Sheffield would co-incidentally be the best place to hold a regional Poi meet for the midlands/north. umm



Bearing these facts in mind and adding together these co-incidences there can only be one outcome: ubbidea



On Saturday 30th October, Poi In the Park of Poi have offered to host a HUGE poi meet at Endcliffe Park in Sheffield to celebrate the Sphercular Home of Poi Day Ball 2004!!! biggrin ubbrollsmile weavesmiley hug



Everyone's invited however good you are or wherever you come from and we want as many spinners, jugglers, acrobats etc... as possible from the surrounding Midlands/North to be there so SPREAD THE WORD!!!

grouphug



the meet will probably start some time after lunch + run on as long as it does. seeing as it's halloween and a special celebration of the Poi community we should come up with lots of fun ideas of things to do like fancy dress and i reckon there should be lots and lots of cake.... smile



So whaddya reckon? Who's coming? biggrin

Posted:ello ello all

y'all should get your arsses to the wonderfull world of sheffield

skulduggery- tho i no know where in wales you is, if you can get to bristol from where yous are, the megabus costs 3 return straight to sheffeild, tho be warned, they use converted double deckers and its a long journey to want a piss redface help

as for floor space: i will be back in shef next week when we will hopefully be getting the rest of the circus skills soc, the flying teapots, involved and a shout for space will be given. ill let y'all know about that when i know.

until then if anyone has any questions/rants/promises of cake then please feel free to get hold of me and bully me to reply * i seem to be bad at that for some reason, oppski*

normally the shefffield poi in parks start around 3pm and are held in Endcliffe park. However we are all hopeing this to be a HUUUGE day of antics and fun and so better arrangments will be made and given here,

so watch this space nana

much love, hugz and purple penguins

trust me on this!

as for getting away form towers to sheff, say we finished towers at 11, which once we get out of park afterpacking up is about right, we wont get to sheff untill about 12.30 - 1 and bythen pretty much every one has gone home as its well cold!

sorry mate!
