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

hug after talking to those lovely ppl at the teapots society we have managed to find space for about 10 or so people to crash at, so those who let us know of needing somewhere to stay will be got hold of very soon * Promises Guv *

if you need somewhere to stay and i havent replied to you, please send me an email: lolli underscore poi @ hotmail dot com
and ill make sure to respond. alternitavely give me a call: 07951 017 807 (as my internet is down at home this would be a good idea if i havent spoken to you about needing space)

if no more space is found i can put up contact details for some local B&B's if wanted

for those staying at Harcourt road, it is the road parrallel to crookmoore road, adjacent to crookes valley park, behind the University of Sheffield. hug

Posted:mech your rubbish ubbloco forget alton towers just come to the ball you know you want to and you know ull have much more fun. as the weather gets worse and worse in lovely old england i fear that this may be the last of the large hop type gatherings i get to attend before heading back home to sunny 27 degree days in adelaide (not gloating there honest) cant wait to see everyone again

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?
