Posted:Well, in addition to Happy Thursdays there is now going to be a new weekly meeting in Guildford.



Every Sunday, from 2 - 6pm in the Stoke Pub back room.



Happy Thursdays are still going to run and will be the "fire night" or, if it's raining, the "pub night" wink

The Sunday Sessions are more practise orientated- as it's difficult to practise and impossible to teach/learn in the dark and not particularly fun in the rain smile

The plan is to have fairly regular workshops teaching everything from the basics to the not-so-basics - so any volunteer teachers, step forward biggrin



We're looking for as much variety as possible inside, hopefully will get some jugglers (ewwwww wink ), devil-stickers, diaboloists etc. down.



Entrance fee is 3 which covers renting the back-room.



The first one will be Sunday, November the 7th and then hopefully it will be every week. At the moment, I'm thinking this might just be for the Autumn-Winter period, but if it's popular (and the pub are fine with it) it could stay smile



Hope to see some of you there smile

Posted:Yeah, Sunday was really nice. Just gutted I didn't manage to turn up before 4, despite living 3 minutes walk away! My bad...

Come on James, there was one point when there were a whole 7 peeps there! clap tho it did only last for about 20 mins...

Are people definitely going down for the Opera House on the 19th yeah? If so, am very tempted to join you, sounds like fun! By all accounts the new Saturday nights there are pretty stomping... Would be a good chance for me to pop home and see the folks as well, since I come from Ye Olde Town of Wimborne...

take it easy,

Posted:I hope it's going on.



But I'm guessing the rugby will probably be on again. Shame, cause the following weekend EVERYONE (well nearly) will/should be at Foulmouth.



I managed yesterday for about 10-15 mins before Durbs decided he had to go home for his dinner. And after such a long bus ride followed by CJing in the freezing cold, too... anyone would think that there were better things to do than juggle all day... wink



Anyway, I seem to have digressed, I think... Let me know what happens, times etc.. and I'll try my utmost to make it along...

Posted:Yeah, sorry i had to leave "early" (Bearing in mind some of us had been there since 4, I don't think 8 is technically early)

Thursday should be happening (especially if it's that warm again...), and I'll find out about Sunday.

Thursday after that - Falmouth! biggrin

Yeah, Alice it was a shame you couldn't get a lift up and that it was too late in the end for you to get a train! Still the year will fly by... maybe we can go to some festivals in 06!!! Also I think they've taken messsenger off the pc at work so no more talking on that!! I'll give you a ring though before I go though hug

Posted:Strugz, I'm assuming you're going to be seeing 2bags at some point next week; I'll not be along this sunday so what I might do is pass 2bags' 2 bags onto Durbs tonight (thursday) so he can pass them on to you on sunday for you transport back to 2bags ubblol. If that's okay with everyone involved!
