Posted:just the weekend eek way more to do in sheffield!.
just th right place for you to land up in as it is one of the biggest communities of spinners and quality spinners at that.

sheffields own website : http://www.poiinthepark.net
br>
they are a great bunch of people.

your best bet is on monday night head over to St Andrews Church hall [rear of the church to the right hand side of it as you go through the gates.], the church is on Upper Hanover Way, which is the ring road in town. It is between Ecelsall Road and Glossop Road, [300yards down from glossop road], between 7pm and 9pm there is the Teapots Circus where you will meet the core of the community and some faces from homeofpoi too.

Ask around for a guy called Dave [onewheeldave] or Matt [solace] or you can also speak to Paul the clubs president... all very nice guys who will help you out and be your friend.

Sheffield also hosts poiinthepark, held monthly at Endcliffe Park at hunters bar... if you check out the pip site there is up to date info on that there, even though there is a thread here in events.

hope that you enjoy your time in Sheffield, it is a beautiful city with many beautiful people to meet and spend time with.
Be sure to give every one a hug for me.

be kewl. smile

Here's a copy and paste, but it pretty much just says what PKand Mech said: -

Welcome; and, in reply to your other thread about juggling/spinning stuff in Sheffield, check out: -

Sheffield 'Poi in the Park' thread both in HOPs 'events section' and on www.poiinthepark.net (once a month, usuallly a Saturday).

If you're bored on Monday evenings, there's Sheff unis juggling club from 7-9 p.m. at st. Andrews church on Hanover Way (get an A-Z: the church is at the university [that's sheffield university, not Hallam] end of Hanover Way, 50 yards down from where it meets West st/Glossop Rd near the tram stops).








"Polichinelo course" is that the short acro-based course that Luke Burrage did? If so, a few people from it have wound up at Teapots during their stay here.

What's the course like?

Posted:Thanks for quality info - will definitely be at the mon night thing not this mon but next (already arranged stuff - shame). Searched the PIP and HOP sites - is there a date for Feb PIP or have i missed it already - couldn't find it on the site but that's probably cos i'm a computer dunce!

Question: 'PK' - is that as in Parkour?

The polichinelo course is the very same that mr Luke did - yes it's damn good - i've been doing acro for 3 years and just started teaching in edinburgh and i've only done 2 weeks of this course and already learned loads - highly recommend it if you have the time and cash.
