Posted:i will be in cardiff this weekend... could be up for a bit of a spin after about 3pm on saturday if folk are coming down... or sunday i suppose, is also possible. smile

fire censure> pontcanna is not far from cathays, and i live in cathays, so if you're around there i can show ya! Pontcanna is just a big field, but there be many places around, bute park, roath park... and there is also a juggling club (indoors) that happens on thursday in the centre of town, best thing to do is let us know when you're coming and where you will be, for sure i can find you a few spinners to play with anytime, anywhere smile

and stacey> i did recognise you, just slowly, wink your hair looked different, straightened mainly, longer?!? that's why... smile

Hello all you cardiff people. I didnt realise there were so many locals! Is anyone interested in meeting up for a spin? Ive been teaching myself for the last month, but seem to have got to a point where I could do with some help, I'm finding written instructions hard to grasp! and really want to move onto the next level. So please get in touch and show me some moves!!!! ubbrollsmile

Posted:hi FrankieB! Welcome to here smile Come along to a meet! or if you can't wait for that and are on a random poi spinning jaunt in cardiff at any time, PM me and maybe i will come along and join you... smile Where you living? what do you do? and other such enquiries?

uh... so folks, been lots of nice weather lately, who's been spinning huh? I have, and have presently discovered that the last 3 times we went down Roath Park on a nice sunny day, we have stumbled across other juggling folk who we know from the juggling club at no fit state and on the odd occasion, even the elusive rossco bossco!... Therefore I think you should all start coming to Roath Park... it's much prettier than Pontcanna, plus juggly folk!

in other news, it's british juggling convention this weekend and i'm not going so i think some spinnyness this weekend could be a good thing... thus i shall at some undefined point be in Roath Park... I can however define a point if anyone should so wish and make it a 'meet'...

also, i was not aware that i owed dave a drink indeed, but i will be nice and buy him one anyway, that is, if he has been using his now stress-free time to practise poi and has cracked a 3 beat weave wink

oh yeah, and apparently no fit state are doing sunday skillshares now too, from 2 until 4. Although have not been and have no definate word on that... will add it to the first post later as and when confirmed...

twenty thirdly, i remembered that there are some awful nice beaches about, and maybe we should all go for a trip down barry island! ubblol or invade aberavon again sometime...

Posted:i will go to a beach but not barrt, that place is a dive. i think a trip to aber would be good as it is central to everyone (or near enough)

Posted:HI Pitman,

Im am trying to learn from the tips on this site. Actually ive learnt all my moves from the DVD I got with the Poi, but now Ive learnt them all (I just need to polish up) Im a bit stuck and reading how to do the more complicated stuff is tricky....! So a spin in the park is in order!

Im not a brilliant spinner (yet) and can only do the few basic moves, hense needing some guidance! PM me if you wanna set a date, Pitmans up for it to by the sounds! now we have some great weather we should make the most! cool

Frankie, ffidrac is cardiff backwards... mainly because i have to be awkward. I live in cathays and also work Mon-Fri, so weekends and evenings (although a bit later in them... after 6.30...) are cool with me too smile

Posted:Aww I'm busy this weekend and next weekend lol. Still planning on trying to make the play festival though - pursuading my mate at the mo...

And of course the wales/england border meet if I can finally be free!

I need to spin. My poi have been in hibernation and desperately need to come out soon as I'm supposed to be teaching a few basic moves to the guides at the end of April...dun dun dun. What do you think is easy to teach? I can only think of butterfly and 3 beat weave (or 2 beat depending on their ability).

buggleberry: i'll pay you if you teach me weave!!! lol (but no, seriously......)
