Posted:ok, this sunday will be the first fire meeting in knoxville. this is an open invitation to anyone interested in learning and sharing poi, staff, transfer, ect... skills. this is an effort to develop a comunity in east tennessee for people interested in the fire arts. everyone is encouraged to be an instructor as well as a student. it will be a laid back meeting where people can get to know other performers in the area. there is no charge and everyone is responsable for bringing their own equipment. safety is a priority so all participants must be willing to abide by the safety guidelines dictated before play. if your an ass dont come. if your not an ass please feel free to come and enjoy yourself. things will kick off at 7 pm at the Gypsy Hands studio. if you need directions or have any questions, PM me and i will do my best to help you.

Posted:I'd go if it was closer, or if it was a weekend long event smile 4 hours and 250 miles is a hike.
Looks like Sunday will be a nice day though, almost 60 degrees.

Posted:um. i'm there, man. PM incoming. wink Nashville Poi in the Park will be Saturday's in Dragon Park this summer, too, if you get a chance to come up. If Knoxville is too far MT, how about ashville? I'm perfectly willing to drive there for some burning too. Time to post a link to Transformus, actually. hehe.

Posted:Ok, all fueled up and ready to go.
I assume this will be an outdoor spin?

I'll be the guy with the shaved head and fire pants answering to Ben.

Posted:I live in South TX, but I'll make the drive for a little fun. I only know a couple of people that weavesmiley, and it'd be great to expand my social fire circle. I'll PM you in a month or so as soon as I work my schedule around it. Hopefully you guys will still be kickin' it by then. I'll see how many hoppers I can bring with me. Probably only a few, but the more the merrier!!!



I checked out the Transformus website after reading this thread. It looks awesome. Mtbeer went last year? What was it like, dude? Is it worth a 1000+ mile trek from Houston?

Posted:your welcome to come burn with us. im going to try and go to transformus also. ive not been, so i cant comment on what its like. mtbeer went and said he had a good time.

the first knoxville fire night went well. decent turn out although a lot of local spinners showed up, not many actually lit up. once everyone gets to know each other im sure things will progress nicely. a special thanks to dut and mtbeer for makeing the long drives. it was great meeting you guys. i have so much more to to try and learn now. for any local lurkers on the board we'll be meeting again this sunday at 7pm.
