Posted:This weekend Ross talked to me about setting up a regular sunday afternoon meet in Cardiff. I think it would be a fab idea. Anyone else interested. Not sure of a venue so far but Ross suggested the front of the Council buildings by the Fountain if they will let us.

If you are keen say so and I'll poke Ross into sorting it out ubblol

Posted:that'd be nice..... although i still won't be able to attend for a while, would this be 'regular' as in even when it's butt freezing cold? also, i'm no longer sure where the council buildings are in cardiff (am sure they move...) so a reminder as to where they are would be useful... biggrin

Posted:So..... Sunday meets? Are we going to do this anytime soon? I've found out we have another new spinner that lives just outside Ammanford. It might be nice to have the meets split between Cardiff and Swansea. Maybe if we set it up to be bi monthly. One week in Swansea and the next meet in Cardiff?

Posted:Yep we could do . . . esp. as we don't seem to have a great deal of people together yet . . . so somewhere the train stations would be good I guess to make everyones travel arrangements easy . . . It is about an hour from Cardiff to Swansea so not too bad . . . .

Posted:Welcome to HoP puss_man. Llanelli is not far from Swansea. Soon we hope to set up a meet in Swansea... probably once a month on a sunday. You are more than welcome to come along.

A lot of us are going to the Bristol Juggling Convention which is running from the 17th of Sept to the 24th. Most of us are only going to be able to make the last weekend though. Maybe you could come along and meet up with a whole load of HoPpers. There is a thread about it in the events section.

Posted:Yes we have had some meets but they were a while back. Most of the summer has been taken up with going to big meets all over the UK and Ireland. We hope to set up more regular meets on Sundays. Keep checking back here for any updates. This coming weekend I'm now a bit busy and for the following 2 weekends I'm away. Click on the link for Infinity Daze in Matts post above yours to see where we will be on the 16-18th sept. The 22-24th sept I'll be at the Bristol Juggling convention. Sunday the 2nd of Oct is free so far....... anyone want to arrange a meet for then?
