hmmmm...what an interesting idea... well seeing as miss Pink...? will be at mine that weekend and will need to be in Cardiff anyway to get her coach home, having a little early afternoon meet up type thing may be on the cards.

See NOn how have we coped with out you...well we haven't really, so YAY it'll be great to have you back in (wet) welshland.

a sunday meet on the 27th may be good, that is also the day of the Prodigy gig, but that shouldn't be a problem smile

ah-ha! indeed. the prodigious ones. presumable it's sold out? not that it overly matters, i have no british money anyway, but i'm sure i can scrape together a bus fare. does that make it an official plan then?

see above, 27th good for you? no fire necessary, except maybe for heating, as people will be off to prodigy in the evening...

sooo... what time does miss pink be needing to get the coach? and what time be gayle and co. arriving in cardiff? can we go somewhere with the prospect of hot tea afterwards... It's getting sooooo cold here, it's hard to imagine spending any time outside at all, but maybe it's better in cardiff with the nice temperate island climate....?

And yes Non it's still raining, but last time i remember us meeting up in Cardiff it snowed didn't it?

I'm from Swansea, been spinning poi for about 3 weeks now, and staff for about a month, also been practising fire breathing(with water just yet) for about 6 months.

The only reason i'm scared of little kid's is because I know in ten year's time they'll be mugging me.....

Where depends on the weather, doesn't it? If it piddling down we need somewhere that has a bit of shelter......or are we going to be hard core and just enjoy the sensation of being wet and cold?

mmm... true... i would suggest a nice warm cafe with good hot chocolate in that event, but i guess there wouldn't be much spinning possible... i don't think i want to be hardcore....

wavehello bounce bounce2 bounce wavehello

Well that was a crazy weekend .... went to turnmills in london to spin - got back to cardiff at 8.30 in the morning...

place to meet for 27th :- stone circle in the park behind the castle .... ?

Weather - it hailed on saturday .... and is damn cold now.

Gayle - I am sure it won't be a problem but will have to ask housemates, so will get back to you

Hi to xorba and thumperabbit :hiwave:

There are a few poi spinners in cardiff that I know of - me and rossco from here and Non when she gets back here....

For places to spin and meet up :

Tuesdays at the Hawian on City Road from 8.30 onwards
It is an open mic night, 2 with a free buffet at 9pm ish and a chance to spin fire weather permitting... a few of us are there most weeks

Thursdays Juggling Club 2, 8pm till 10pm this has just moved to a new location in town... at Charles Street not quite sure on directions yet haven't been there myself yet but if people want to meet up before then that can be arranged...
It is just a practise space but it is always good to meet and share tricks. . .

so hope to see you all soon hug
