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

What say you?

Posted:*Important notice*

I may not be there if my student loan has not come through as I am totally skint. This means maybe no tent.

But im goingto ask my housemate if I can borrow it from him.
I reckon 20 including bus fares will do it.

Posted:Rah

you lot are nuts you know that!

Halloween dress ups are to be done for sure, much amusment biggrin

Ben Huggging is a classic and will never go out of season tongue

Finding camping ground is going to be interesting and unassurable so see if anything else can be sorted before material castles are erected

As for accomidation, i have managed to sort out places to stay (inc YOU mister UCOF, no excuses, come play. . and bring videos wink ) for the 30 odd of you *(very odd is most your cases) who id spoken to before today.

There are NO other places at the moment frown we may be able to sort out an on-the-day squeeze but as tis all student houses and sofas+floors, it'll be getting cosy!

at the moment im trying to see whether its possible to rent a hall for mass crash space and ill let y'all know if tis so.

Here are some numbers for likely looking "guesthouses"if anyone would like them:

Harley Hotel - 0114 275 2288 , Glossop road

The psalter - 0114 266 6188, Psalter lane, hunters bar

Rutland Hotel - 0114 266 4411, Glossop road, broomhill

im unsure what these hotels are like, there are quite a number more and some B&Bs around but these were te only ones whos numbers i have got so far.

I reckon that Huge hugs should be given to the lovely teapotters and Harcourt House collective for lending us the space to sleep ppl hug everyone has been amazing! ubblove

Tis looking like we should have a good time!
hopefully we will be able to get the cafe in the park (inc bathrooms) open for the whole event so that yummyness (etc) can be had.
As well tis possible that post park celebrations are going to be had round Harcourt Rd so watch this space! ubbloco

that all folks, see y'all in 2 weeks time!! eek

Unfortunatly, the Blacks website for tents is currently down, so I cant get you full details.



It says on another website, it sleeps 8 at a push... this is bullshit. we will have 10 I reckon, that way it will be warmer



*I still may not be able to come*



I reckon, if I do manage to make it, all the Kit goes in the middle and we have 5 people in each end bit. Cos its gonna be freeeeezing. Sleeping bags, blankets and warm things would be lovely.



Lolli. I will sellotape the video to my chest. smile If I go home first that is redface



then again, I could go home on the thursday evening...



Oh, and If i do come, Mech and Narr, Dunkywunkywoo and GeorgeB already have spaces reserved hug



I was thinking of having a smoking, and a non smoking end.... confused
