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

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:yeh jon dont worry about it, they will only get aresey if the bus is ridiculously full, and i doubt its gonna be totally full to the brim anyway, so you should be fine, mostly they put those things on their policy so people dont purposely overpack and havea limit, it should be fine
anyway if the bus driver gives u hassle you can just tell him about how in the bag is all the goodies for the children at the home and without it christmas will be ruined for them, its bad enough they are blind etc, im sure that'll work

If you have a problem that you have one too many suitcases, if theres a group of you on one bus then you can just share it out, so it appears you all have the right amount of luggage. Depending on how much each person is taking though, hmmmmmmmmmmm.
