So as Laurel so gracefully wrote in her email to me, we've finally pulled our fingers out of our arses and got the meets up and running again.



Same place as last year, in Alexandra park, which those of you who have been there before - will agree its a very pretty place to be.

There is a caf, public toilets open until 6.30 and and boating lake.



Unfortunatly Hastings and Rother park rangers tell us we can't spin fire in the park, so when the time comes we walk the 3/4 of a mile to the beach. Usually pit stopping at the Pig in Paradise pub which has reasonably priced good food. And like...beer on tap and everything biggrin







On the 21st of May we shall meet from 2 onwards on the large bit of grass inside the main entrance. You can't miss it. Theres a large white war memorial to the left of the field and a boating lake just yonder.



It's actually impossible to find a map of Hastings which includes the station, and the park. When Laurel has told me directions I'll stick them on here.

I don't remember road names. I don't need too. My feet work out the exact angle of the hill I'm walking up/down and I can tell exactly where I am....in relation to the hills.

Hastings is hilly.



Anyway, it's a really easy route from station to the park, and I'll get directions up on here soon smile





About the park

Hastings taxi's





Please note. Hastings isn't always the prettiest place. People can be rude, and hurty with knifes and things (really making you guys wanna come here ey? wink )





We don't live in a ghetto, but this place dosn't exactly have the friendliest chavs/immigrants/drunks wink

If you are comming alone, please alert a Hastinger. My mobile number is available by request and I am more than willing to come meet you should you arrive by train. Especially if you are arriving when its dark.



As per usual all skill levels, ages, races welcome.



Hope to see some familier faces on May 21st! biggrin



(notage: If people wish to come on the saturday from afar, I'm sure I can rustle up some floor space at my dads house..or even mums if shes feeling special as its closer biggrin Give me a buzz and I'll see what I can do. Also notage: I'm not sure how many spinners will be around on the saturday. I will be after work, but I can do some rustling of the hastingers and once again, I'll see what I can do smile )



hug

I post in this thread waaay to often. I think Hastings spinners are allergic to the internet, that or they all spend there time here. I do have friends....honest

This is not a good thing.

Sunday will be fun. You have to come. I am bringing Twister, and foreplay dice. And a purple cake too..

My stilts may also be finished for Sunday. This is a very good thing.

Be there, or be a quadralateral.

Hey Hastings crowd, do I know you guys? I think I know Shaun, if thats you ginger. LCM kru! Its Colin the only contact juggler in Hastings.

Forget Ali park, theres lots of alternatives, lady's parlour, rock a nore beach, or even the aptly named fire hills (which you not allowed to light fires on :S ) all have better views than Ali park.

I'll be up for a burn during those summer evenings get in touch when you reorganise the meet.

PS; LCM is back in july at Hastings Pier.

i really dont understand the council..

they want us to do nice things and not mug people...and then complain when we do what they want. lol.

they're making a big fuss about PLI, so we really need to find somewhere where that is less of/not an issue (mike, buy me a field!)...if we cant do that then not only is it going to get expensive but its going to discourage new kids. and we want new kids. because new kids are fun.

I know what ya mean, Marina = Best LCM. I'm suposed to be juggling there again(yay free entry). =). Shaun, spinning is probably cool, fire though, not cool. Being that the pier is made of wood.
Black Horse this weekend, going to be there with HCC. More juggling antics....

C'mon u 'astings kru, don't let the MAN get you down. At the castle then?

saw ginge yesterday, we were thinking the land below castle rocks (the cliff next to the castle)...pretty sure its public land + its sand and rock - fairly hard for us to damage. nice view. all that caboodle. i think this is the best suggestion so far plus it'll be brilliant for photos.

Hello there everyone,

Poiboy here. (I seem to remember being called a "random person" the last time I found you in the park. biggrin )

Colin & Sean nice to run into you guys again. Hows tricks?

Sorry to hear that you have had problems with the park rangers. I can remember when we were spinning there during the day couple of years back and one of them came and gave us a grilling. He was a not a happy bunny. neither was I, but guess we have to work with their rules and petty dictats... eek

Anyways enough of my witterings; are you still meeting up tomorrow near the castle? It would be nice to meet up with you all for some fire & electro glow if you are about in the early evening & after dark? weavesmiley

Peace and mettta

John

And yes Chambre Magique at the Marina was always a special night. Good venue, amazing location and far enough away from the council prying eyes to allow us to have some fun. ubbrollsmile

I met some truly amazing people there and I will never forget the naked dancers dancing behind the projections screen smile
