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...

Posted:There was talk way back down this thread of regular sunday meets for wales lots, perhaps alternating between the locations of swansea and cardiff every 2 weeks or so (i'm a bit flakey so weekly is a litle too much), if people are interested we could resurrect this idea and get some sort of rotation going on between cardiff, swansea and newport. I think we need more people though to make that worthwhile, otherwise it's a potentially long trip for no reason if nobody turns up, however it would be nice to have a regular meet that anybody could come along to. trouble is it's a bit difficult because we are actually covering quite a big area... so don't know how well it'd work....

plus at the moment, the potential swansea meet has 3 people, one of whom is mainly watching, anybody else??!

Posted:location... is the problem we've had in the past, in Cardiff we usually go to the park behind the castle so it's nice and central... but never had a meet in swansea or newport... problem with outdoor meets is the weather though, especially when it's like this, so somewhere sheltered or near a pub/cafe is good.... as long as it's easy for everyone to find wherever they are coming from, and has a dry option, it's good, but that can become a more detailed discussion as and when people are up for it...

Posted:The point of the monthly thing is that it doesn't always have to be in cardiff... but there is so far only seems to be three for this weekend in June, trouble is a lot of the people who have visited this thread have vanished again, which is why i think something more regular would be good so that it doesn't rely on people checking HoP.....

Posted:I've been absent without leave, sorry Non biggrin

I think it would be good to have regular meets and it would be nice if we could make it regular to get as many people coming as possible. So far we have been very flakey about setting dates and times. There may only be 3 people so far agreeing to turn up, but it could build from there. 3 is better than none ubblol

What we need is a place that has options... dry and wet ones (as Non already pointed out). It's also no good arranging to meet on a weekend that has a big festival on at the same time. If we can get it started and build up numbers we could then occassionally arrange whole weekend meets attracting a few non welsh people over the boarder to play. I can house and feed a fair few, for a couple of nights, if needs be.

So what date are we talking about for starting?

hmm places to spin...need to have a look around...



should we organise something for end of june, begin of july - plenty of time to publicise (lol) and find somewhere to go...hopefully...any ideas? - what about the park behind the castle as the first place?...anywhere to run from the rain?

As for entering the Col 2006... I'm not a good enough spinner for people to want to be watching.
