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:Ed: Would definitely be up for a spin this Sunday, but it all kinda depends where I find myself waking up on new years day...! Have u still got our numbers?? Probably best to sort it out on Sunday!

Lavatwilight: LOL! we haven't actually got a bouncer working the door as such... ubblol It's more of a pint glass that people toss a few quid into on their way out. You have a point: paying to play with ur own toys sucks, but then we're pretty grateful to have our own part of the pub; where we can plug in a UV cannon; and use their sound system to put on whatever brand of filthy music tickles our fancy. biggrin

The first Sunday back in the pub should be the 8th: hope you can make it! cool

Happy New Years people! hug

Posted:Cheers for the PM, Dub.I'll text you nearer thursday to see what's goin' down...

Thursday night is looking good for me. I have my new fire poi, and they need to be broken in.

Any particular time people want to spin? Seeing as it gets dark around four O'clock, any time is good, just depends upon people's schedules... But definately up for thursday night.

Posted:strugz, it was a pleasure as always.... hug biggrin

bryn, it's a shame you didn't make it man but there's always next time! smile

i had a really productive time yesterday with hardcore spinning for 6 hours solid. remembered loads of stuff i'm supposed to be working on and even found some new stuff...

next week we're gonna meet as early as possible before heading down to the star for psytrance and glow toys at Trippy Hippy... yay! bounce cool

... and seeing as the room is so nice it's a shame that more people aren't using it so sometime soon we're gonna try and have some sort of Guildford meet on a sunday just as an excuse for more people to come along... watch this space!!! ubbrollsmile
