hey all,
I know some of you from this list, in the fall I used to come out to parker's piece for the sunday spins. its a shame I couldn't come out to more meets... but I'm headed back to the states after finishing up my year abroad here.

anyway, due to a cancelled may ball fire performance I have two and a half full (4 liter) jugs of paraffin. they're up for grabs (free) if anyone wants to come by peterhouse, near trumpington st, to pick them up. the only catch is I lost my mobile a few days ago so we'll have to arrange a set time to pick them up through email ... I leave friday afternoon.

send me an email at waxyc (at) hotmail.com if interested.

cheers,
anna

Good luck with everything when you go back home, was good to meet you all those months ago. Shame you didnt make it down more often. I cant come pick it up I'm afraid because I work in Bedford all week and only come back to Cambridge at weekends, guess you'll be gone by then frown. I'm sure someone will come grab it though biggrin

Good luck Anna! Was great to meet you.

Not sure when you're heading back but we'll be on Parkers Piece on Sunday if you fancy a farewell spin.

hey,
was great meeting all of you too!

So... no one contacted me, and the three 4-liter containers of paraffin are just sitting at my boyfriend's place near Peterhouse (trumpington st). If anyone wants them, they're still up for grabs, and you can email Rich at rjd40 (at) cam.ac.uk to arrange to pick them up if you like.
thanks again....

Help! I'm looking for spinners/jugglers/performers to entertain 400 school children on Friday 21st July at about 12 noon in Colchester. The children will be making the shape of our new building to recognise the gallery's commitment to education, and a local army helicopter will be flying over to take aerial photographs.

If you're interested or have any queries please e-mail me karen@firstsite.uk.net

Thanks!

I've been told by Matty B to come in here to ask about Poi in the Punt as a possible stopping place for when I go down south from 5th - 13th August...

Poi in the punt is scheduled for mid August, so far I'm thinking the 19th is probably the best day for it (that's a saturday) We're looking at taking out about 30-36 people (including cambridge people) so that would be 5-6 punts. I'd expect about 15 people to be from cambridge itself, at a push I should be able to fit about twenty people in my house for the night.



How does that work out for people?





Location: DAY: cambridge, punts on the river NIGHT:(PM for details)should be possible to camp for the night



other details:

punting in the daytime will probably cost a few quid (about 2.50/hour with 6 people) provided we have punts filled with 6 people to share the cost.



Punting company details at https://www.scudamores.com/punting/yourself/index.php

P.S, if you get a punt, ask for a metal pole, they're much easier to use than the wooden ones!



night location is sometimes used for raves

well, we haven't really started an official tally, maybe we should start a list. The date is now being changed to 19th August as Matty's away that weekend

YAY!!!- ness on both counts! biggrin

I think we're going to keep it out of the official forum threads, due to the evening venue and the fact that I'm not sure we'd be able to deal with a huge amount of people. Will get a cut and paste-y list going soon. So far its:

LazyAngel and Winged Avenger
Matty B
Gayle and Neal
Neon Shaolin
Mr Chutney
Vampyricacid
Motley
Sym and Jo
Tom (a cambridge bloke)
Steve (another Cambridge bloke)
+2 others who came to PLAY sorry, I'm having a mental block on namess

Hi everyone,

This is slightly off topic but if you're in the East region watch BBC Look East at 6.30 to watch 400 school children making the shape of our new gallery. Managed to get a few poi spinners there to perform which is cool.

I won't be able to make it to Cambridge this weekend I'm afraid ...wish I was. frown ubbcrying

See soon!

Love you xxxx

Hello all! Just a quick reminder about some Cambridge stuff:
* There's a meet up on Parker's Piece every Sunday in July and August from 6pm, lots of people to play with
* From the first Sunday in September we have an indoor meet at the Citylife building from 5pm (beginners) 6pm (general practise) - lots of stuff to borrow, big hall with a mirror, tunez etc.
* Some of us are going to Papworth Hospital on the 6th August, the Greenpeace Fair in Suffolk on the 2nd September, Cherry Hinton Festival on the 10th September - at all of these we plan to raise some money for the local circus group and generally have a laugh teaching and performing.
* All this and more at www.camcircus.org - and there's a Yahoo group you can join as well (see the Contact Us page)

Cheers

Hey guys, I've not see you lot for ages!

We should meet up at some point. Who can make it to parkers on Sunday? Maybe we should go to a pub after?

What do you think?
