Hi ghost, never been to the union meets thing so don't no whether I have met you or not . . . didn't realise there was one, when do they meet . . .

On the point of circus skills stuff and somewhere to practice... Was chatting to a friend last night and found out there is a circus skills/ poi etc thing every week in a community centre just round the corner from me on THursday nights 8 - 10 and only a quid, plus they let you play with fire in the carpark . . . so will be going along . . . have any of you folks been along before / fancy going . . . They also play uni cycle hockey

depending on where round the corner is from you... my brother's been to one on thursday night before, someplace. he didn't say anything about uni cycle hockey though!! not that i have a unicycle or am able to ride it... if you do go though let us know what it's like from your 'poi'-nt (ubblol oh dear...somebody shoot me...) of view, because i don't think my bro was too impressed, he's stopped going...

Skully, i think Bird is stalking you, that's why he's here... either that or he's just taken a wrong turning somewhere around bristol biggrin

whoa, wait, I've been imported from england...I'm only here for uni, I'm not actually welsh. Does that mean you're going to lynch me if I turn up?! I chose a Welsh uni of my own free will, is that worth brownie points?
Anything to avoid a lynchin' umm I get worried enough about that when Wales play England at rugby!

So, where's round the corner from you, MattyB? And the student union poi/juggling/staff/whatever club is on saturdays at 12 in the big hall thing. Or at least it was last term. Student union website not forthcoming with new details, may have to email them

Well I am an import too, from Cheltenham, england - so looks like there really isn't that many welsh spinners in here at.... though I have been at cardiff uni since 1998 so 6.5 years living here should give me some credit . . .

I live just off Newport Road (Splott direction) , just round the corner is City Road, behind the Tut ' n' Shive
Saturdays aren't much good as I am noramlly out and about but would good to know of on those crappy rainy days where nopthing much else can be done...

I have decided I am going to go along to this circus thing/poi thing behind the tut 'n' shive . . . I only kinda know one person that is going to be there. . . If anyone fancies joining me, I have no idea what it will be like, but they do let you play with fire in the carpark, I can meet people in the tut 'n'shive at 7.30 pm ?

that is true.... and generally cardiff would be the place where i'd be trying to get home from.... - yes you're quite right i shall leave it out... unless everyone wants to change their name to enternameherewithin10milesofCardiff so we can have a gang? oh no but wait then skully, you live too far out.... never mind, i'll come up with a fabulous gang name, just you see, we could even have a secret poister salute! tongue
oooh... it's all going a bit enid blyton... umm

hey, do you guys realise this is now the second longest topic in this thread?! the only longer one being the australians and that's surely because of sheer quantity... we must talk a lot...

well duuuhhh... what on earth else would we want to talk about?? but like skully says, we're all a bit disorganised, so we have to fill the space with something biggrin

i'm sure someone told me that the welsh are world renowned for being a bit random, can't see what all that's about meself.

but hey! everyone wants to come now...! bounce
