Posted:Hi Rach, There is now a regular meet going on for circus skills on a thursday night in the Phoenix Centre, Townhill from 7-9pm. There isn't any place to fire spin, but I'm sure you could do that down on the beach afterwards.

Posted:It's 2 a session. You have to fill out a form when you first go too as they get funding for running it and bringing all the equipment and they have to submit a head count and type of visitor to their funding board. It's fairly basic asking name age and where you are from.

Spent all of sunday jumping down sand dunes in the gower, it was lush, think there should be a mini-meet at llangennith or something - we can gatecrash someone else's bonfire of a saturday night smile

Posted:We are in the part of the building that the blue dot is on in the map. If you pull into the car park to the left of the dot you will see a door on the wall on the right. They look like fire doors, but they open into a hall.

I'll most probably be there Thursday if I can get a lift over.

I'm thinking of setting up a hooping meet at Llangennith... I could combine it into a poi/staff meet to if you like, but it probably won't be until next year now. The campsite that's just on the beach edge is a turn up and pitch one. You can't book in advance, so you just have to take pot luck as to if there is room. The earlier you arrive (especially at weekends) the better chance you have of getting in.

Posted:indeedly, that's how i ended up there this weekend - the others were booked... 'tis also a bit expensive on a saturday or friday... methinks outside of school holiday season would be better...

as for the meet, it's up to you if you want nasty poi and staff people at your hoop meet, i was just randomly throwing out the idea in the air. The only planning i was planning to do was to suggest a weekend that i will go there, and see who else turns up tongue
