Posted:Hi Fire Censure,

There is no regular meet at the moment because in the past there haven't been enough HoPpers in one place able to get to one. There are only a couple of us in Cardiff, everyone else is scattered far and wide across South Wales - hence why there is always so much debate about our meets - if there was a regular one, where would we have it? - Also when i started this post, there seemed to be very little point in having a seperate meet as there was already stuff going on elsewhere - thus, everything in the first post is already existing clubs and events. And aren't just for HoP people only, as there are in fact loads of jugglers, poi people, staffers etc. in Cardiff, but most aren't even aware of HoP.

Although i probably do need to update the first post, i have no idea if the Hawaiian event is still going, but juggling club at no fit state definately is. The people there are all lovely and all have the same interests as us lot, they just don't use the forum.

It would of course be possible to set up a regular meet and indeed some people have suggested it, but i personally think that amongst just us lot, there isn't enough commitment to make it work, whereas clubs like no fit state run successfully as they already have a good network of people, and they have their own identified space in which people can practise. This thread can be good for organising meets elsewhere in South Wales, but as i said before, us HoP lot are quite spread out around, which makes travelling and time availability difficult, and even though it would be nice to have meets for those who can't get to Cardiff or wherever, its usually pretty difficult to find a time and place that everyone can make it to. The thread is open for anyone's ideas with regard to this matter, but then it has been for a while and no-ones quite managed to come up with a working solution as yet.

So, indeed there is an active juggling community in S.Wales, certainly in Cardiff, but unlike some other towns and cities, it is not connected through HoP. shrug

I am happy to meet anyone at almost anytime or place if they want to, (and i'm free) and anyone else can come if they want/are able. But the amount of debating it takes to get a big group together always seems to take longer than the meet itself, which is why this thread runs into more pages than we've had meets! I will go back now and double check the info in the 1st page, but until anyone has a spark of inspiration and the time to put into organising something, that is the situation in Wales! (and this thread supposed to be all Wales, and has about 6 or 7 regular posters... you can see we have something of a relatively titchy online community...)

'k that's my spiel... ideas on the table please folks, i've personally, run out... and even though i still enjoy doing poi, i have very little time to think about it anymore...

and on that bitter note...
hope you are all well! grouphug

Posted:that my friend is a very big post but all ture i might add. personaly i think its just adz being lazy and he wont come to cardiff much (joking) he comes to cardiff a lot but to ship people from cardiff out to him is a bit of a difficult thing.

Adz - mate the ropes are amazing and i would tell everyone to buy them. well worth the money (rip*cough*off*cough*) again joking.
