Posted:i am trying to get a fire night next weekend saturday 8th january 2005.



all spectators welcome and performers of all kinds welcome





starts at 7pm on castle fields in southsea. may be moved depending on police attendence.



create own posters if you wish and post them over portsmouth (the more public the better eg. commercial road etc.). if you do the information must contain: Starts at 7pm on sat 8th january 2005, on castle fields in southsea all performers welcome fire performers most of all.



if interested add me to msn and say there or e-mail me at dan_evans_666@hotmail.com ! DO NOT PUT MY NUMBERS ON POSTERS. as this meet has not been cleared with Portsmouth City Council. if you are unsure where Castle Fields is in southsea just head towards portsmouth pyramids and when you are in front of it go to your right and look for a large crowd or people playing with fire.



*all fire performers, perform at your own risk.



Either no one has yet been in contact with me apart from the underneath. so non are confirmed apart from myself, wire_me_up, Atua-Tuakana, and a few people from http://www.soton-firespinning.co.uk
so if interested contact me asap (texts are acceptable) anyway apart from ringing me.

Portsmouth is my home town and I'll be there at the weekend.

Actually, I'm amazed to see that there's not just one but two Pompey folk on this thread already!

Good luck with it anyway.

Lamia,

I said I would e-mail you if we didn't manage to speak to each other on MSN in the near future, which we've managed to do.

I don't know why you'd want me to e-mail you: in public, it can benefit everyone. Also, you've dismissed the vast majority of our advice, but you use some of it while still sounding hostile towards us in both your posts and our chat conversations, which I find ungrateful and also rather confusing.

I understand you've had not only personal difficulties of late but have been busy with coursework as well. I understand those as good reasons for possibly not being able to spend as much time as you'd like in organising this fire meet, but I see no reason for why you're being so rude to myself and my friends.

You're also extremely defensive of View Of Innocence, reiterating that you've organised these kind of events before, yet, if this really is the case, we're still unclear as to why you are being so complacent and naive about this fire night.

We're offering our help because we felt that your original promotions were very mixed messages. Not only do we wish people to remain unhurt, but also that fire performance keeps its good reputation in Portsmouth. However, I personally am not willing to sacrifice my own reputation or that of my friends by making guarantees about this event, which is what you have asked me to do, because you either don't have enough to organise it properly, or aren't prepared to make the time.

It isn't a case of changing your posts to "suit everyone concerned": it's about taking those actions to ensure this event is at least reasonably safe, if not completely lawful, for all concerned. Of course it would be nice if we could all dance around with fire without anyone ever getting injured, killed or arrested - it certainly seems to be some kind of aspiration of VOI - but it's not like that, however much you'd like it to be. If you want to use fire, you must be realistic of your responsibilities, not only towards your immediate circle, but to the public as well.

We're still planning to come down on Saturday and as most of us will have travelled from Southampton especially, if you could be more co-operative, it would be appreciated smile

Why would they come over if you've already spoken to them about it? confused

Posted:Hey dude - to be honest what do the police know about fire spinning!!?

More to the point - what do you........... as i consider myself to be pretty "safe" with a staff but id certanly suggest more than 1 poxy meter!!

At least 4. cool

Also i remember the gardens, would it not just be better for all of us to move the whole thing onto the beach?

Just a suggestion.

See you 2moz smile

Posted:hey guys thanks for a cool night its good to see a scene growing in pompey smile, but i gotta say though that if i hadnt have needed my gloves so badly i think i would have bitten my nails to nothingness. im gonna be a big meanie and stress again what others are being to nice to say... you REALLY need to sort out you fire safety, i couldnt look half the time as i edged further and further away from the crowd. but otherwise weldone for bringing spinners together, it can be a bloody hard thing to do sometimes wink

Posted:No Spanner, that was a few friends of mine... I'm Chris...one of the few Portsmouth lot who actually said "Hi". I had a good night, it was great to see a good turn out, alot of new faces. The Grey cotton top, the idiot who through lack of perception did a nasty burn-off a bit too close to the crowd?? ><.

Narr your right. We had the safety equipment, but the safety factor really needs to be improved. I could see everyone cringing. But Heh congrats to Lamia for arranging it.
