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:Hey everyone, this is the first time I have got near a computer since sheffield. But I just wanted to say I had a wonderfull time. And I think I got a hug from the brodieman, in fact I am pretty sure I had more than one. I also got hug from the benjaman and lots of other people.

It was lovely, and I got a lovely new staff care of Mr mech, he is called Mr staffy 2. Mr staffy 1 is back in Australia.

Anyway I just had a lovely weekend in brussels where I danced and danced and danced my lil heart out. Now I am tired and going to bed.

Hugs and gingerbread men to everyone smile


I don't like living below the tropic of Capricorn..... and now I seem to be in England...... how did I get here???
