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:Pyrowill read this

the train station and bus station are right next to each other in sheff, a road appart


Written by: mech

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

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Could someone in the know - create a new thread with JUST the details of what's happening, when, where, what to bring, where to meet, Plan-B's, accom available.

Only it's all stretched over 18 pages and is a little confusing...

Posted:The buses from by virgin are any of the 80s.

You could also get a tram from the railway station and walk down from the university.

It's a very easy city to traverse.

I'm fairly open to meeting people from trains and buses etc (if they're stuck and/or likely to get lost) as, i believe, is Mr Mech.

I tried to persuade her otherwise, i said that everyone will be really friendly and she'd learn loads. But it didn't work frown
