Posted:And so, announcing the worst kept secret in history.

Uberpoi will almost certainly be held on the weekend of the 16th of July.

Teachers will be confirmed in the next few weeks. but don't you worry, they're going to be DAMN good.

price will be 45.
why the increase you ask?

because the uberstaff teachers were paid a very small amount, certainly not enough for the time they put in. and we would like to pay people a reasonable amount for their work. 45 is still very cheap when compared to most weekends of this type (approx 40 per day is the usual rate).

Accomodation will be fun to sort out, but i'm going to try to find a cheap location for all.

i am away in bristol for the next week, so will not keep you up to date until after i get back.

*invites excitement*

wink

much love

Posted:Just now finding a moment to share my thoughts!

Thank you so much Rob, what a fabulous time... give your roomie a hug too, what a great guy for putting up with all of us!

Drew- you were such a joy, and a comfort too. Thanks for your humour , and support. All that and swing dance lesson too! I hope we dance again, even more badly next time! I never did get to have a chat about what really matters... we must make time.
PS:I promise I will only accept large denomination bills $$ when I sell off the hot pictures of you spinning illegal poi manouveurs
;-)

Matt- wibbiling master! Thanks for the night in Brighton, fun and fine distraction, and wibbling to techno-ish stuff was a treat to watch! You rock! And what was that delightful Italian drink? I must find out if it is available here. Designing lighters already, get that store up and running, and the products shall come to you...See ya soon?

Dom- people here are laughing at me for talking of wombling and bimbling, thanks for the new vocabulary!And the Renegade application of tiger balm made my night... whew. Talent!

Vero and crew- best breakkie ever! Tx!

Imogen- can not wait to see how your spinning develops! Beautiful already!Good luck

Dan has some of my pictures to post( hopefully) soon... very funny!

Much joy and love to you all, thanks for a wonderful trip!

Posted:hello folks.

firstly
redface
it was nothing. actually, it was [censored] loads of work, but i wouldn't have not done it for the world.
it was one of the most incredible things i have done in my life. thank you all so much for coming and making it so.

biggest thanks of course to:

drew, arashi, nick, matt, cole, andreas and robmc,
for their time and energy that made uberpoi what it was.

a few things.

workshop notes. i am, as ever, uberbusy, but i did promis my 'workshop workshop' notes to many. i'll try and get them out asap, but please don't hold any breaths. its on my list.

cole/simian: dosh still owing.....?

kat - i owe you a refund. come and get it?

tshirts. i am now ready(ish) to put in a further tshirt order. i need sizes and amounts, and they will cost 10 plus P+P, unless you are going to play, and i can get them done before then, in which case i'll deliver by hand.

hmm.
i think thats it.
maybe.
if anything else crosses my mind, or anyones elses, i'll let you know

love.
rob

bugger - i completely forgot to give you that cash before i left redface

i reckon simian can send it up himself now though so i'll sit back and pretend i was never involved... ubbangel


oobapoi truly was a milestone for me rob - thank-you for asking me to be involved and for having faith in me from the start all the way through to the day we finished.

i discovered i'm a damn sight more neurotic than i ever realised but i think that channeled positively, anxiety can actually be an asset smile

Posted:hi cole,
you channelled it amazingly well! I loved the workshop of yours that I did, despite the fact that I was initially worried it would be too technical for me . You are technical, but you break it down so well, it makes sense and fits together like a dream! A few components that I only overheard from the next workshop,( about changing the speed of the poi etc,) are still working their way thru my brain... It was mucho valuable, Thanks...

Soon I hope to have time to actually spin, and try everything I learned out!

And I never once saw you sweat;-)

hugs to Lisa, wish I saw more of you at Falmouth!

Nobody remembers my name, so you can call me Georgie from now on... Yeah, whatever!

Shaken and impressed by your photos, Dan!

Hesitated to show mine.... Couse they suck! They're small and blurry, a real pain in the ass to look at. But those of you masoquistic people out there... go take a look.

Instructions here:(The site is in estonian) The link top right "Jrgmine" is for NEXT, and top left "Eelmine" is for PREVIOUS. To go back to thumbnails, click on "uberpoi" somewhere there... Makes no sense?? Good, try anyways ubbloco
