Posted:How many of you lovely Southerners are going to play?

My sister Cath, Jon, Beccie, Hannah, Dan and I are all going, but we only have 1 driver, so we are thinking of hiring a mini bus to go in, but it's only going to be cost effective if we have most of the seats filled.

I'm putting out feelers to see if anyone is interested in splitting the costs with us and coming on a magical mystery (well it is Cath driving ubblol ) bus ride to Play.

Posted:Skully!! hug

i'm def going, as is my housemate, and we are car-less so a minibus would indeed appeal if you get one. Which day would you be going up on though? I will be in Spain until 24th and not sure at this point when i am back in Cardiff! How much do you reckon it will cost per person?

There will probably be a fair number of folk going from Cardiff, as i'm pretty sure most if not all of Rossco's housemates & other assorted cardiff juggly people will be going as well as any HoPpers who want a lift. How many people (+ toys...!) does a minibus take?

Posted:So far the best quote I've got for a minibus with 17 seats (but no luggage space) is 500... that's without the insurance excess option though so it might end up a bit more. The price it costs per person will depend on how many people are in the bus. If we do it we will need money up front from people. No money, no guaranteed seat. I think we will need to leave about 3 seats empty to get all the camping gear in. So if we have 14 people it will work out around 36 per head... depending on the insurance costs.

We will be travelling up on the Wed 25th and coming back on the Sunday 29th.

As I said before, we'll have to look into this a bit more if enough people show an interest in the next few days.

I just got back to Wales and am looking for meets in the South Wales area. Is there anything regular yet or is it still sporadic? I'm in Rhondda and can get to Cardiff fairly easily so if you could tell me again where people will be, that would be great.



Hellooo fire censure...

for a guide to geographical location, there be a few of us based in cardiff, so should you wish to get there it is very possible, watch this thread for details of meets, however Becci also lives in the Rhondda and thus is not very far away from you, however Becci has not appear online or on HoP for some time so could be rather difficult to pin down... I work in Aberdare in the Cynon valley which is not so far, but there's not a lot of spinning time available at work, but Ponty could be a convenient meet point for the two of us should you so wish... I think your best bet is to hop on a train and head down to cardiff of a day or something when the aforementioned "odd meets" occur... stick around and something will happen smile

No worries about the change of minibus plans skully, hopping on the train was the other option anyhoo... not that i have formulated anything quite like a plan yet, i just got tickets, i thought that was fairly advanced planning for me smile see you there!

In other news...

Happy Birthday ULG!!

Posted:A meet in in Bute Park? Is that Bute Park in Cardiff near the river? And did I read Saturday at 1pm or so? Count me in!! I don't have my own twirling stuff so will people let me use theirs? I do staff, double staff and occasionally devil sticks. A little bit of poi but I'm not that good. Let me know further details and help me get there because I'm not familiar with the concrete square thing.

Posted:Ok, I'm now officially confused. I keep reading old pages and getting my information mixed up. confused
By the way, some of the meet information at the very beginning of the thread is out of date, eg. Meeting at the Hawaiian on Tuesdays. It's confusing for newcomers such as myself. Is it possible to have a regular meet in a regular place that serves both wet and dry conditions where we won't annoy anybody? The group in Adelaide, Australia meets under a bridge in the city and there have been no problems with police and it's always dry there with lots of room. Is such a thing possible? ubbidea
