smile on sunny evenings/days, Roath Park (Rec. or flower garden) you may well find a NOn spinning... it might also not be a NOn, or even a HoP person at all, but if you see someone there spinning, you may as well say hello...



at other unspecified times, there may be other meets, check the most recent posts in this thread for specific details...

Cardiff Games, Duke St Arcade: although not exclusively a juggling shop, they stock some poi, juggling balls and rings, plus occasional other sorts of toys... oh and the guy who owns it does poi too!

Posted:Hey all.

Aberavon is indeed by Port Talbot, and thus it is possible to get a train there, we have done it before. And even though we got a lift from the station before with sage, i have reason to believe the beach is within walking distance. So yes Giz, i think we should indeed have a meet down aberavon in the sunnyshine!

Ok so we can meet in Pontcanna, I was just saying that in Roath Park i quite often happen along some fantabulously clever juggly poi types who aren't on HoP, and thus if anyone wants to go there on a sunny day, they may also meet them... and me probably too, since it's closer for me, and my garden's not really big enough for practise...

So THIS weekend is the 20th and 21st of April, and i propose that meeting on Saturday would be a good thing, in Pontcanna fields in the afternoon. so who's in?

As for the other exciting summery things>>

buggleberry, there will be hundreds of lovely people at Play, it's about the loveliest festival ever, so you should come anyway, and i think butterfly and 3 beat/2 beat is going to be the best place to start for your guides, if they manage to crack that, you could move on to doing behind the head butterflys giant butterflys and other butterfly variations... if they crack that... windmills... Having a look at the order of the HoP lessons might help you plan it...

Pitman, how are you getting to Firegathering? Driving? If i go, i can get the train although would prefer to avoid getting train through London if poss, as it makes it 3x more expensive... and will def be seeking a lift from the train station smile

Posted:this meet is in Cardiff next is in....

is abber ok with you and jade. i dont think hats to far but i havent really got a clue.

non- we could possibly make a run to the station to pick you up but i am sure we cant give you a lift all the way sorry. ryans car is a bit weird and has no room in the back plus his speakers plus tents food and toys.

giz - [censored] hell its been a long time mate. you need to come to cardiff this weekend.

all - someone bring parafin with them i am hardcore broke and want to spin the new ropes i got from adz which area amazing by the way. everyone should by some.

Posted:ULG: happy to teach you the weave if I ever manage to be free to meet up! It sucks because I'm free during the week when you're all working lol.

the king of the land of mike: im leaning over the 50% mark for coming to play. by the way do you have to pay for it in advance and stuff. doesn't really mention it on the website.

NOn: thank you for the useful info. I doubt they'll be that good to get too far, but ye butterflies are prob the easiest to develop with them.

Posted:buggle: i aint working in the week...... so it may not be a big meet, but i'm sure we could arrange something with a few others on a weekday if you like? i also noticed that i can't get many payment details off the play website, i think you can pay on the door, although its prob a bit more expensive. i've kinda learnt loads of butterfly stuff now (and a few other lil things) so i'm looking for different things to learn now.

Posted:Adz> yeah of course we can, but you've seen how hard it is to get cymru people together for a meet, i'm happy to go anywhere for a meet as long as i have advance notice of where, when and whether other people are actually going to turn up! smile These days i seem to have to plan my weekends as well as the rest of my week...

stacey> I have listed Cardiff Games in the very first post and mentioned a fair few times throughout the thread... the guy in there told me he spins too in fact. But i bought monkey fists from there and they broke pretty quickly, so might be good to ask him who made the stock if you're buying fire stuff.

PLAY> you can buy tickets in advance, but they are not on sale yet as far as i am aware, check the Play thread for details and updates on that one. It's best not to risk buying on the door, as there are only 500 tickets available and it pretty much sold out last year...

Saturday> 1pm, Pontcanna

Cardiff Games is a shop... that sells games and juggling stuff...

and yeah, i know, i said i would come down later but pitman said you'd both left already...

play is from 25th to 29th of July, it's on a farm in Shropshire, and every HoPper in the UK is going (practically.) Tickets will be 35, there will be a Play bus running from the station and there will most likely be a wiki site again for people needing a lift or offering one, as well as providing all sorts of exciting information about workshops etc. And the Play thread, website and newsletters will variously contain every bit of further information you could possibly want. Type Play in the search and you'd probably also get loads of photos of exciting things happening at Play... and i repeat EVERYONE IS GOING TO PLAY... biggrin

Posted:Frankie & Stacey > seeing as it looks to be just us three on saturday, how would you feel about moving meet location to Bute Park (the ickle concreted patch for ease of finding each other)? As i will probably also be going into town on saturday, and it's a lot closer than pontcanna. Having said that, i may also be late as am possibly getting my new camera delivered on Sat morning, and it says it could be anytime up until 1pm on the delivery info... Frankie, I'll PM you my mobile number too in case you need it to find us smile
