Hey,
Now I know that there are lots of people living in Glasgow that own poi as they keep on selling out in the shop that sells them.

So where are you?!

There are nice people in Edinburgh who have a poi group but I'm sure we can get something more local going too! confused

Live like there is no tomorrow,
dance like nobody is watching
and hula hoop like wiggling will save the world.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

I'm through in Glasgow most weekends. I used to go to uni there so i still pop along to keep in touch with folks.

If you fancy having a spin sometime feel free to fire me a pm.
What shop sells poi? I went on a hunt for some and drew a blank.

just because something is simple, doesn't mean it isn't difficult

Also anyone's welcome to PM me about going to the park or somewhere to play with fire.

oh.. and you can buy poi at The Big Top at Charing Cross.

Ok; I'm not pricklyleaf, but I can answer yes to all of the above.

Sunday spinning in the park is very much on and Miss Leaf has been going to the juggling club most religiously. biggrin

Sorry about not responding to this sooner; I was kind of expecting people to post in the thread in events, performances and gatherings rather than here. redface

See you at the party!

...oh yeah!

I thought I'd bump this thread to see if anyone else is interested in Glasgow. Come to the juggling club (which I am informed by the marvellous Pricklyleaf that the current influx of spinners is very strange). You can try other things as well as poi.

On another note, does anyone have any idea when the Sunday sessions in the park will start up again. I know the weather really isn't up to it tonight, but I'm not up to speed on the Glasgow microclimate. And, where is Kelvingrove Park?

Ancient wiseman say "It is very strange person, who, when left alone in room with teacosy, does not try it on"

Hey, I'll tell you all this next time I see you anyway, but the sunday spinning is kind of starting up again, although mostly its just me Andy and Sarah going to the park (more Sunday juggling then). If you want I'll get your number and let you know if we're heading over. And Kelvingrove park is the big park in the west end near the university, ask me if you want some directions biggrin see you thursday! Last time I went all the polish guys were there though (you know the ones that are really good at poi spinning - Sebastian and co.).



Its all a bit hit and miss, a case of - its Ok weather, do you fancy going to the park in an hour?

I went to the one last week, but I don't think I'll be going tonight as I'm sooooo knackered. I also hit myself very hard in the eye last night at tepooka, and I'm still recovering, don't want to risk doing it again!

Have a good time if you go though, it was good last week.

And yes, his name is chris, although I suspect it's spelt Kris, as he is polish.

See you next Wed, if you're going.

P.S, like you're new photo, although it's wierd seeing you with straight hair!

Hellooo Glasgow peoples..
I will be in your city a fare bit over the next few months. I fly over from Aus in a couple of weeks...
Who is still around? Are there circus/spinning meets that I should know about?!
Eve

What if I should fall right through the centre of the Earth and come out the other side where people walk upside-down?!
