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:Rushes into the thread panting like a fool. Sorry I'm late peeps my comp broke. I am coming and will bring a tent with me (only a small one the one I took to trading is a bit to big to lug all the way to Sheffield) I would like to stay in the hall if at all possible and should be arriving sometime (very vague yes I know) depending on how I get there if =FL@5hPoin+= has space left still that would be great. If not I will be getting the train with loki.c1687 on Fri. hay will you have no need of sleeping arrangements you slept just fine in front of the fire on the last night at reading if I remember (giggles at the memory of a grumpy cold will on Monday morning).
Ha just finished reading the whole thread from the beginning (how many people can say they have done that HU HU) this is going to be one cool week end.
That is if the weather holds of may have to come in my reading gear (will will understand) to prevent excess mud build up. Been looking at fancy dress but they dont make it fire proof infect all the good stuff is extra melty dont fancy a trip to A+E and trying to explain the half melted skeleton clinging to my bum.


before i met those lot i thought they'd be a bunch of dreadlocked hippies that smoked, set things on fire ,and drank a lot of tea but then when i met them....oh wait (PyroWill)

But the trouble being, if they say "No" - you're fooked.



Hence why UV cannon could be tricky smile

At least with National Express:

"Luggage is limtied to 2 medium sized suitcases per person plus 1 hand luggage on all services. "
