I am up for a meet. we need a location and a date. I fly home on the 19th december so between now and then would be cool.

Perhaps we could have a chrimbo spinning meet (mulled wine and a nip of something to keep us warm?)

I will kidnap Chutney and Blasphemous girl and Chris and make them come. I'll put them in a big sack and deliver them to the middle of Wales like santa.

suitable: i'd still say pontcanna fields, as there is a pub near by if the weather sucks, and its safe, they don't mind fire etc.

there is plenty of cheap acc. near the city centre, i may have a place if people can't find anywhere.

ummmm...........anybody have any suggestions as to what i can put here?!

Hi folks - I'm not sure how current this thread is but I'm a recent poi enthusiast (since a pal showed introduced me to it at the Big Chill this year) and I'd love to meet up with some other spinners before I develop too many bad habits!

I'm actually based in Penarth but can easily travel. Weekdays after 6pm are usually best for me. If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd love to hear from you :-)

Here's hoping!
Pete

Hi folks - I'd love to meet some of you mythical creatures before Christmas! Does anybody fancy coming out in Cardiff in the next few days? I'm new to the whole spinny scene and dead keen to meet peeps...



I'm open to suggestions for a venue but Penarth beach would be super convenient fo me. Here's my availablility over the xmas break:



21/12: any time after 16.30

22/12: any time before lunch

23/12: any time after lunch

27/12-2/1 : pretty much any time (hangover permitting)



Bye for now, Pete

Ok hi alls im back

Sorry for not being here but have sort of lost interest since this dam cold weather as taken over and wow so much to catch up on,,,,,,got there in there end its a shame I live in pembrokeshire as its a bit far to see you lot on a week day but I might be able to trundle down your way on weekends when the weather gets a bit better.

On a plus note though im staying with my folks over xmas so between 27 28 dec I could meet as near around cardiff and so as they live in Rhondda plus ive just got my Gf some poi for Xmas ,she dont know so sssssssshhhhh biggrin

getting back to meets though maybe we should all get something going where we can camp for nothing near a beach,,bring supplies ect and have fun


Take it easy

Daz

sorry for being so lame and staying away from things im iching to get back into my staff

The path of my life is strewn with cow pats from the devil's own satanic herd.
