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

I thought you meant bump the thread so it would stay on the front page of the "Events and Gatherings"...

How do you bump a post?

I keep trying to be helpful and keep doing it wrong. I'll just go stand in the corner. Or maybe wander over to Scotmid. biggrin

Before you start, I know this is off topic but people need educated. As interesting as the cow snot theory is, it's far more likely that they've used lactose to sweeten it (lactose being a sugar found in milk). Similarly, many a drunk person has been confused as to how their bottle of reef contains milk products.

(I have no evidence to back this up)

Now to get this back on to topic...

Sorry to hijack another thread wink

quite a lot of orange/fruit juice aren't suitable for vegans. Some unscrupulous fruit vendors glaze fruits in shellac (beetle secretion) to make them shinier. Obviously this is done for fruit that is sold to end users, not fruit that is juiced, but it can sometimes go back into the production chain. If you ever go to co-op, have a look at their fresh orange juice, it actually says "not suitable for vegans" on it. Their long life stuff is fine thou.
