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:Quick urgent question for Sheffielders

Where abouts is the "Sheffield Travel Interchange" which is where the National Express busses arrive.
Is it ok to get a bus there or is it miles out the way?

if you are getting teh bus in, or the train, it will be alot easier for you to catch teh bus up to teh park from the town center next to virgin, than it would be to try and walk it to teh park...

Posted:OK......DIRECTIONS



ok as you arrive at the train station, youwill see the uni in front of you!



if you arrive at the bus station, you will be able to see the uni library (pic below)


Non-Https Image Link




you want to head up the hill out of the stations, if you are in the train station you will head out , and up the road, through the road works past the side of the nelson mandella building....



you will see a hill leading up toward hallam uni,



if you have come out of the train station, dont go into any of the interchange main building, stay in the maze of shelters



you will prob be kicked out right infront of the large set of steps, inside one of the shelters, continue up towards the the front of the bus station, each bus shelter is all numbered a,b,c,d and so on, head for shelter a and then you will be facing the uni building, head left out and walk down the street and you will come to the NMB, the student union, you are now facing the same hill




Non-Https Image Link




basically if you come out of the train station, look right down the road, and go across, and walk through the bus station, and then get to oundstreat and take a left to the uni, or stright over the roads infornt of you as you come out, and then round the NMB and up teh hill



Buses - come out of the bus head up the bus shelters to pond street, and youw ill have the uni gym infornt of you, take a left and head to teh roads traffic light about a 100 yrds on the left, then head up the hill.....



it has a pub on teh corner, i cant remebr the name, but its good for breakie!



go up the hill, and try to carry on going up, you will come to the old (now being rebuilt) entrance to teh sheff hallam uni, just outside of it is a large circle area, and then steps up, follow these steps up, and you will come off them, right next to a main road and a crossing right infront of you as a single crossing...go across this, and up the ramp next to teh art gallery



you are now nearly in town...GO STARTIGHT AHEAD!



if you carry going straight you will go past a pub, a flower shop the winter gardens (that looks like the hull of noahs arc upside down in eth ground) you will go past the halifax pub, and then you will go past a tabbaco shop, and a GM corner shop, you should come out of this street and see Virgin mega store infront of you





there is a bus stop right next to the virgin store, i dont knwo the bus number yet, ill get that offlollie laters



hope this is ok for all of you





please go heer, (my gallery) for a map to show a lil better

Posted:durbs, to be honest, its more like a 30 min walk, i just didnt want to put you off!

look

multimap

these directions are from sheff uni where you will be getting in, going to hunetr house road, which as far as i can think/see is right opposite the park we will be playing in

if ths link does not work, go to multi map, and then directions, and then type in

sheffield hallam uni

and

hunter house road

and it will show you directions
