Posted:Glad to see more people turning up to our meets!grouphug

The Avery pub on parker's piece has offered an open invite to firespinners to come down and spin outside the pub next saturday at 7pm for their 'Hawaii' night. Grass skirts and bikini tops are not compulsory, parrafin ad firetoys etc, will be looked after by the doorman apparently if you need to go inside for a drink. Lots of random spinners might turn up so make no bets on having enough paraffin for multiple burns, but I'll lug a few litres down anyhow. Should be fun!

Posted:simon: erm ok.... why?
Justwalk: shame, was quite a good meet and decent weather too.

I reckon we ought to try and meet and 5pm on next Sunday, so we can get a bit of practice in before it gets totally dark. However, my poor timekeeping means I shouldn't promise to be there before 5.30!

also, I'm thinking of heading down to London on saturday for the last Clapham PiP. anyone want to come with me?

Posted:Well to be honest I'm kinda torn, i have a mate coming over from stratford to help with something at work, so i dont wanna be rude and spend all the time not at work spinning, but also i dont wanna miss the meet, so i figured i could do both, spend most of the light hours of the meet inside, then when it gets dark come out for a bit of a burn and show off tongue

Posted:Good meet last Sunday, only sorry was late and could not stay long. Next Sunday (30 Oct), if I can come along, I will aim for 5pm ish or even a bit earlier if it seems to be getting dark.

If I understand Vampyricacid's messages, he wants to socialise inside the Avery, and then show off outside it, is that right?

Posted:Ok so this weekend it looks like a most of us will be heading down to midsummer common for fireworks night. I'll bring some fire, but if you have glow toys it might be an idea to bring them just in case fire spinners are being frowned upon.

Posted:Hi area, I dont know of any shops in cambridge that do any poi stuff so your probably best off buying off the net (HoP have a good selection *points to go shopping link at top of page*).

Feel free to come down on sundays and have a go with our stuff tho if u wanna try some diff types before you buy, in fact, come anyway smile

As Lazy says the next meet is gonna be on saturday on midsummer common for fireworks night if you want to join us there as well.

For the regulars - Guy and I were discussing the possibility of putting together a paraffin kitty for those who wish to partake. Theres a garage at the end of my road which sells paraffin and since i usually drive to the meets I dont mind looking after the supply side of things.

Anna - you left your cup on sunday, ive got it and will give it to you next week and I'll try to grab an extra bottle of paraffin for you as well.

*reads up*

oooh long post biggrin biggrin
