Posted:well.... i haven't got any cash either, so let's eliminate that as an argument...

but i propose swansea, simply because we haven't had a meet there before and it has a beach. I shall possibly see mr. rossco tonight at juggling club so i shall inform him and gauge a reaction...

ubblol I bet Rossco won't make it. It would mean being organised wink



i'll make him make it, although he is again temporarily mislaid, or at least not present at juggling club the last two weeks, so it rather depends on his reappearance biggrin

The beach in Swansea is large if the tide is down. We'll have to check tides and stuff.

Posted:yeah yeah yeah...

the other possibimility that i thought would be down the Gower someplace, but i'm not sure if that's easy for everyone, or at all possible on the trenau... If beach at Swansea is large and tideless it'll be a lot easier to get to

Posted:so sunday the 18th at the beach in swansea. count me in.





i saw this message and i thought i would share it.



.:Bigbury on Fire 06:.



"Theres another fire meet organised for Saturday 10th June at Big bury On Sea . Its a very nice beach with nice golden sand and its very sheltered from wind and what nots. We have been giving permission by the beach owners to have a gathering on the beach and to light a bonfire as well as fire spinning. As like Falmouth (sorry if you guys feel ripped off - but good ideas need to be duplicated ) were getting a delivery of fire wood also for a nice big fire (so please put a few pound towards this if you can). There will be music there too, in many forms. We had a beach meet not so long ago in Torbay that went well. But this time its at a better beach and well closer to Plymouth, where its easier for more people to make it.



There will be some people spinning all day long, not just the evening. Please if you cant make it, let other spinners you know from the area know about it."

Posted:So we are going for Sunday 18th June Swansea beach... about 1pm-ish or is that too early? If we say we meet by where the old bridge that went from the Guildhall over the dual carriage way to the beach used to be? (did they put the bridge back yet?) Then if we fancy catching a bus down to the Gower we can.

Anyone coming into the train station that doesn't know Swansea give us a yell and I can come and meet you. Same goes for the bus station too. We can arrange for someone to meet you.

Maybe we better set up a different meeting place if no one knows where I mean.

How about in Castle Gardens? We could meet by the ugly leaf fountain at the top of the steps.
