Posted:Hey there TFS - the meet others forum will be better place to look than in Social Chat. I will move it for you.

Also, if you could pretty please edit the title of your post to include the country, it would be much appreciated. I'd say it's safe to bet at least 3 quarters of people here have no idea where Townsville is.

Posted:I've just been to Townsville! Just came back tonight. omigod, how could you even think of spinning there.. soooooooooo humid!!!!!!! Maybe there's some nice airconditioned park somewhere!
Seriously, I would guess if you go down to the Strand..maybe put a sign out in the local paper and get something started.... and at the backpackers.. for travellers....????

Good luck!! I will be coming up there faily regularly for work and would be happy to meet up....

Posted:Yeah, do as much spinning as you can in the winter time chaps!

Maybe some notices at the Uni might be a good thing: you two agree to meet regularly somewhere handy for the backpackers hostels and start a JuggleJam? Lots of travellers spin and that could build something local...

Offer Ribbon Poi lessons at the Army base? eek wink

Every wednesday we all meet outside the uni library and spend a couple of hours twirling, juggling, drumming... from about 5 if anyone is interested.
I moved here about 6 years ago and have watched the t'ville fire scene develope from nothing to quite a significant (for the size of the population) twirling place... they are out there... don't give up smile

Hope to see you next wednesday or send me a pm and i can give you more details. ubbrollsmile

Posted:*hopes no one gets annoyed for bumping up an old thread[1]*

Fire twirling group...

Fire Dancing Circle

Friday Nights from 8:30pm at Soroptomist Park, Rowes Bay

Weather permitting wink

There's poi, staff and drummers there, so go along, bring your friends and have a great night ^_^

Also, does anyone know about any of the Cairns twirling groups? I had a search around and I found out about FireByTheSea, but that appears to be more of a performance thing.

Thanks. biggrin
