Im not from Oxford, but I know a couple of people who are in the "Stunt Factory" and they are always playing with fire....you should look into it. Ill try and get some info on contact stuff for you. Im going to Oxford in April, and im only to happy to show you some staff (ive been spinning staff for over 5 yrs now...) There are no stupid questions, only stupid answers...

6 people there, was most enjoyable!

Okay - www.enjoypoi.co.uk appears to work for everyone except those people who connect via ntl - any chance you can make a complaint to ntl if this applies to you :o)

As for regular meet ups. The plan is for the 2nd weekend of every month - would this suit most people? The next question is would you prefer the Saturday or the Sunday? Vixen - when is it you are working? is it just the Saturdays? As for a time, I guess about half our before sunset roughly - we could confirm times just before each meet if that was okay with everyone? Hx

I know whats wrong with www.enjoypoi.co.uk smile Mail me and I'll explain as its quite technical, anybody on ntl can view it by going to https://www.the-cloak.com/login.html
and putting www.enjoypoi.co.uk into the starting URL box smile

Hope this helps and anytime is good for me smile If fishes were wishes we'd all cast nets
