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*

much love

Posted:now may be a good time to mention that as soon as i get the time i will be arranging more workshops throughout europe in the 3-4 weeks following uberpoi... i plan on going as many places as possible, germany at the least, (where i have some workshop seeds growing already.)
so anyone in france or amsterdam or whatever that wants to get a few people together, at least enough students to pay for the fare to get there (or a portion of a rail pass if enough cities get going), and a couch to sleep on, could have me come to your town for more silliness. and i know at least poibox and bluecat have mentioned an interest in teaming up too...

Posted:*Thinks of an excuse to bump thread up again...*

Um... how come there were 20 something people on the 'not yet paid' and you're only harassing 9?

Does that mean that the rest are paid and on the list?

Who's on the 'confirmed' list as of now?

(Sorry, that was the best I could do...)

wink


i'm sorry.
i don't have time to do the confirmed list now.

i have been asked, however, to make a bit clearer what you get for your money:



for the princely sum of 45 you will get two days intensive classes, lots of lovely people met and played with and more new poi knowledge than you could shake a 'flexible swinging club' at. On the middle night there will be partying galore, with fuel and some sort of soundz provided.

food is NOT included - but there will be an Ubercafe run by the lovely rob, providing great food for small amounts of money.

accomodation: sleeping bags on floors(and yes, nate, you should ALWAYS bring a sleeping bag when travelling to a floor, and not expect hosts to have unless previously specified). as mentioned in the above posts, i nearly have enough spaces, with a couple left ot sort out. if anyone fancies a bit more privacy/helping me/ is feeling rich(delete as applicable) then feel free to book into paying accommodation and get real luxury.


i hope that helps.

biggrin

Also, I have no idea what specifics you have planned, but could you please cancel them and remake them slightly differently? I think I would like them better.

Thank you.
