weavesmiley Cardiff/Caerdydd:



smile Thursday nights, 8-10pm, come along to Ebenezer Church (Charles Street, around the back of Burger King and Next) for nofitstate circus' community juggling club, for poi and all sorts of other exciting juggle arts. It's just 2.



smile Little Devil's Circus coming soon... contact pitman for further details or keep an eye on this thread



smile on sunny evenings/days, Roath Park (Rec. or flower garden) you may well find a NOn spinning... it might also not be a NOn, or even a HoP person at all, but if you see someone there spinning, you may as well say hello...



at other unspecified times, there may be other meets, check the most recent posts in this thread for specific details...



juggle Juggling Shops



Cardiff Games, Duke St Arcade: although not exclusively a juggling shop, they stock some poi, juggling balls and rings, plus occasional other sorts of toys... oh and the guy who owns it does poi too!

Posted:i got my unicycle i got my unicycle i got my unicycle todaaaaayy!! i also had to have a filling, so one made up for the other (guess which way round that is) I managed to ride about 2m... once... and then realised the garden is not going to be big enough to reach Level 1 on the unicycle progression thread, which means you have to cycle 15m... i think i might have to get my arse in gear attending juggling club for spaaaace...

sagey, can you steal me some pretty holographic label stuff from your work, because i want to make my unicycle purty and holographic? i only needs a little bit if you have some leftover from your staff... pwease? ubbangel like this

in other news, i just noticed pitman registered on my birthday... unless i've told you that before in which case i didn't just notice it and i forgot smile

anyone want to do another meet before Falmouth? perhaps in a park with a sort of waist height rail?

Posted:Morning ladies n gents!

i got given my first ever poi for my birthday... today!

am having much fun hitting myself in the head, but wanted to see if there was anywhere where i can watch people do it better than i (not hard), and possibly give me a few pointers so i can, well, not hit myself quite so much.

I live in Cardiff in (whispers) *term time* as am a scabby student there, but have never heard of anything juggling related in the area, maybe just haven't looked.

This seemed like the best place to ask

thankyous!!!

Posted:Greetings Cinders! welcome

Everything in the first post is indeed current, nofitstate's juggling club is lovely, plenty of space to just do your own thing, and always a few poi people there to help out. I haven't been for ages because i've been busy, and i'm not sure if there are any HoP regulars going there too often, but if you want to go along and you want some company or directions, let me know and i'll see if i can come smile Lots of other exciting things to do aswell as poi!

On top of that we have been having a few off the cuff S.Wales HoP meets all over the place lately, see photos of the recent aberavon trip at www.stuffandnonsense.me.uk/aberavon/index.htm and this is the place where we plan them, so pop in for a cuppa whenever you can smile

There's big-'uns coming up, like Falmouth, Bristol Juggling Convention and Wales/England border meet, so this is the place to be for the up-to-date walesish poi news!! If you're not here yet (because i assume it's not quite term time) then let us know when you are, and if you want a nice easy way in to HoP life, please come to the Wales/England Border Meet nr. Abergavenny (about 40mins from Cardiff).

Welcome to Hoppity Hop, stick around hug

It depends where you are in monmouth, but we do have miss buggleberry fairy nr. abergavenny, and mr sagetree who lives near usk, and if you want to venture out of Wales eek there is also a thread for hereford and gloucestershire in this forum someplace smile
