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

hey, ucof not really sure what your post means. i think you
might be confusing me, 2bags, with a guy who was calling himself
pupilof2bags but isn't anymore. we are different people i assure
you. however, i'm a pupil in that i have many talented teachers
all over the world such as the lovely folks at sheffield last
weekend.

huge thanks to the people who organised, it was fantastic. i can't
wait till the next one.

Posted:Nice to meet you all. grouphug

Big thanks to Loli for accomidation, smiles, etc (And your friend Tim for putting us up)

And big hugs to pink for making my jaw drop! eek
(Pink can now 'Oli' her hyperloops everyone and she hasn't even posted in the new moves section. spank)

Thanks to Nx for showing me some crazy atomics. I think I'll leave those till I can actually spin normally! biggrin

Thank's to the girl who lent me her big pink fluffy poi. They were much fun and made me feel like a real man! I'm gonna make some soon!

Sorry if I wondered up to you and went WOW you're (Insert famous spinners name) 'HI' and then had nothing to say! Was a tad spaced / overwhelmed. redface

Sorry to have to run off like that and couldn't stay longer! To many things were happening on that weekend and I wanted to do them all. Had a fat bounce with PSI(mike) at psy-trance extravaganza in Bristol! bounce
