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

yeah you guys better drink lots of tea before my class cause i'm gonna cram 9 years down your throats... spiral i'm tiffed you're not coming.

don't forget, glass... "HOP's most eligible bachelor" and i don't mean the drew kind... soon i will meet the nebulous her!!!

now i think i know what poncing means. how about we just appoint someone as the "ponce police" or "ponce bobby"
-official headgear... if you ain't gonna even TRY to disco then get off the dance floor

oooh here's an update/edit for the beginner's class;
"uberpoi- things every beginner should know but rarely does"
students will learn the fabulous nuances of how to do the "Saturday Night Fever" dance move while spinning, including variations on hip thrusting and finger-pointing directions -Such a price the gods exact for song: to become what we sing -Seek freedom and become captive of your desires. Seek discipline and find your liberty. -When the center of the storm does not move, you are in its path.

It's my birthday weekend and I'm going to be at a festival with all my mates... about the only time this summer I couldn't make! But if you're here for a week longer and do end up in Falmouth that'll provide the impetus for me to get my lazy [censored] out of London ubblol "Moo," said the happy cow.

Garthy- "it all" looks even better with TWO potatoes.

At least to a guy. Girls find it "intimidating," i've found, and tend to give you strange looks.



Now that I know that some of you guys are blowing this off for an everyday old psytrance party rolleyes I'm sorely disappointed spank. Unless Shpongle is playing... ubblove plus isn't that OUTSIDE?!?!?

A 1 hour workshop in
"Advanced Poncing for beginners- including an introduction to flouncing" Rob and Drew 103





Will this workshop cover 1980's style strutting? Or the international, local and gay varieties? Will I have to wear a dress to do the flouncing?

Glad to see Arashi's diving into the spirit of things... Can't wait for a load of really fuck3d up poi workshops... wink biggrin "the now legendary" - Kaskade
"the still legendary" - Kaskade

I spunked in my friend's aquarium and the fish ate it. I love all fish. Especially the pink ones. They are my bitches. - Anon.

Temptation....TEMPTATION....

I'd have to bring my leather if I made it over there....which means getting into shape...I've gained a few pounds since the last time you saw me frodo. Don't look bad, but those leathers are a weeeeee too tight for comfort right now.

Frodo- how are you getting up to Edinburgh?



At the moment (if I can go) all I can probably afford is to travel by megabus. That means getting the bus from Newcastle down to London, then London to Edinburgh. Then at the end of the weekend going back down to London and back up to Newcastle.

It's such a long way round it's gonna be a total pain in the ass frown ... but it'll be worth it if that's the only way I can get there.



Also, has there been any plans made as to where people are staying?
