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

Acidtrip, this midlands Sphercular HOP and Poi in the Park event is being held in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. on the 30th October 2004. if yous have a look from earlier in the post and there should be more details for you there.

There is room for jons mansion in our garden, looking out on the park. good location and cake biggrin hug

To clear confusion about the hall, my bad for sure, the Hall will cost 70 all formentioned included. so the more ppl we get coming up to stay there, the cheaper its gets for everyone ubbloco lol.

everone coming on friday should have a house space where to establish themselves at. Hall space and some house space is avalible for anyone arriving on satuday.

Looking more certain that i'll be arriving on you're fair shores the end of next week for a visit and some little international home of poi day gathering bounce And 19th of November i could be moving to live and work in the UK for a time. But yeah, it would be way cool if i could have some shelter also, hooray for shelter. Ben's off galavanting somewhere me thinks, hope to catch you soon online or something. Hoping to be in London on the 28th and head back on the 2nd (back to belgium that is)
Looking forward to meeting and playing and learning and uh... funning with you all. Hooray for fun. weavesmiley ubblol juggle

I personally have not heard you offically says yes you are coming yet.

So I wont be as dissapointed if you do not come (I will still be dissappointed though), rather than saying yes you are coming, then dont.

Right - I REALLY want to go so do I...
a) Get bus from London at 07.30am which means somehow either getting to London and parking somewhere over the weekend or carshing at someone's house (hint hint) - This bus gets in at 11.50-ish
b) Get 11.30 bus without having to stay or park in London but doesn't get in until 3.30
c) Drive up which is a bit of a mare, but probably about the same in price if i can get more people in the car
d) Sod it - and go to Brighton?

If anyone can eithe offer me floor space in London Friday night who fancies getting the 07.30 bus or wants to share a lift up from Guildford way - let me know here or by PM
