Posted:Hey Non, Jeanie..... I met Rossco Bossco in Cardiff on saturday and he thought it would be fun to get a group of us Welsh people together. He said Dunc was coming over in a couple of weeks, so it might be nice to do it then. Even if its just us, ross and Dunc its always nice to meet other spinners.

Jeanie I live just outside Swansea. I'm not all that good yet at either poi or staff but I'm working on getting better. It would be good to meet up in Swansea sometime if you can't make it to Cardiff. My niece Hannah spins too.

Ha Ha Ha HA yeah right. My house is 10 foot square - not even enough to spin a 3 beat weave without hitting the lampshade, the walls, the floor, my head!!!


I think you should be made to buy us all tickets to see Portishead and massive attack

I had to queue for an hour in the cold and you were only allowed to buy two tickets. It kinda sucked! Shoule be a good night though. I'm off to a fire party on sat night, should be fun!

wave Hello Matty, welcome to the fantabulous world of HoP. Gayle is right when she says I hit myself in the head still. I have a talent for it. Its about the only move I can do consistantly!


I'm waiting on Non to get back to me about the 19th...... I don't know anywhere in Cardiff that we can fire spin. I have to know soon too because one of my nieces friend wants to come too but her mum won't let her if I can't give times and places.

*pokes Non in the eye* Wake up girlie!

Posted:Hello there, thanks for the welcome . . . My problem is I don't really get to practise that much . . . therefore anytime we have a party which generally means a bonfire, I end up doing poi and hitting myself.... It would be cool to meet some more people that are into poi, I have managed to teach my friends a few tricks now and again, but it would be good to learn some tricks of others and get some tips, learning from books is so much harder than actually having people to practice with..

Posted:Ahhhhhhhhhh!!! i've been away!!! i've only just got back!!! um uh....

skully> have you spoken to rossco? and found out what he's doing?.... does he have any ideas??

'cos i know of a place that we could go but it's someone's house and it's up the valleys and it's not mine, so i shouldn't really invite loads of people there randomly.... and how much fire are we all spinning?? because there'd loads of places we could go in centre of cardiff am just not sure about whether fire is good there - i have a beach for fire but it's in penarth although that is only a short way away, or... behind the castle in cooper field there's plenty of space there, and if anyone says anything we'll just have to hang our head and plead our innocence... we could make it an afternoon->evening thing so if we're all going to be hitting ourselves, at least we won't be burning....

um.... uh... is that enough of a plan?? or do we want specific dates and times? hows about 19th Jan, Coopers field, from 3pm? speak now or forever hold your peace....

i have no idea for indoor places but if the poi spinning falls through due to inclement weather, there's always the pub.

Posted:Well 19th of Jan would be cool but I really don't want to wait until Jan 2006 to meet, ubblol Feb however will be fine and 3pm sounds good..... now all I have to do is find coopers field.

I haven't spoken to Rossco....... I thought he would have read this......maybe I should ring him once its a definate time and place. If it rains a pub would be ok. I think Han and Sarah would get away with it (they are only 16 and 15.)

Matty come along if you can. We don't bite, and we promise to have a wash before we turn up biggrin

Posted:Hey thanks for the invite, but unfortunately am heading to Bristol for a big house party , my friend has hired 8000 balls to make a ball pit in one of the rooms and they have hired a load of DJ kit, so I can't really miss it . . .
I hope the weather is good for you guys and gals and I am sure you will find coopers field , it is just behind the castle, could recommend the stone circle as a good place to meet it is close to the castle and easy to find . . . and not a far walk to the pub if it starts to rain or if you get too cold. . .

Rossco hasn't got any web access at the mo, so he only gets to check up here once every never so often. Probably best to call him and I'm sure he's up for some partying but he's off to Amsterdam soon so that might clash smile

Not that I'm a wimp or anything but I'm buggered if I'm going to stand in cardiff spinning in the snow freezing my assets (as small as they are) off!

Gayle can I sleep standing up in the shower? Or can I be the last one to be stacked. I don't want to be squished!
