Posted:aww... Matt is on his lonesome?? not good, ye must seek and find new cardiff poiers then convert them to the cyber world of HoP... I propose you do this by poi-ing in the middle of queen street, followed by a stint in the hayes, where you can't fail to clobber somebody and draw their attention to the honorable art of poi. GO FORTH AND CONVERT!! biggrin biggrin

My poi crusade in Slovenija, has in fact required very little effort i am finding so far, nearly everyone in Art Center has at least hit themselves once, and i found a little poi community in Metelkova... but the flippin' dust is making me socks all dirty... umm

Anyhoo, where's Rossco, these days, has he now officially fled to Telford? how terribly rude! wink hug

Posted:Ross has been stolen by the evil Duncan. I think Duncan plans on cloning Ross to make his very own tribe of telford spinners. They will all have Uber long eyelashes and have an urge to Hug Duncan very close.

Posted:Well there really isn't that many of us, but it is some fun, infact this week there was only me and a juggler. d'oh

Though if you want some tips on spinning, heading down to the community centre behind the tut and shive on city road is a good bet. There are people of all abilitys there. . . Come down and say hi

Posted:I didn't go to juggling club either though last week, went to see Roni Size instead, he was ace though... So Ross missed out on some dirty drum and bass which is probably worse . . . You can tell him that I could of fixed his staffs too if he had asked . . .

Also Dunc, do you want some more people to help out at PLAT festival, I have met a girl called Becca who does face painting that would be up for helping out and her bf is apparantely quite a good juggler . .

Have you not heard of the PLAT festival before . . . no neither have I oh well , you know what I meant
