I've ended up staying till 3am before a few times, as it was so nice up there smile

so the answer is 'whenever' as long as the weather holds

have a laptop that can provide tunes for a couple of hours. (shpongle / pendulum ), anything else would be cool, we need to recruit a drummer or something really smile , havn't seen Parsley on Wed for weeks, and he's never come down at the weekends I've been around :/

I've got a little fuel left, I might try pick up a new can, especially as I've run out of batteries for my glow gear. It's 5 for 4 liters at freds discount store on Cowley road.

Back on internet smile

Last night was really cool, and great to meet you Beth and Hyperlight. Before seeing the hyperlights I was a bit skeptical about the 'brighter than the sun, flashier than a flashy thing', but now I completely see what everyone's raving about! weavesmiley

you go through to the back of the carpark and through the gate to get into the park btw.

few people away at the moment, but I'd expect 7 or so, I might be quite late this week myself, missed too much karate since coming back.

Well the weather's not looking too promising for tomorrow, but I'll be heading to the park about 7ish anyway so hope to see some people there weavesmiley juggle

I heard a rumour about a weekend spin on Saturday 9th September... Maybe someone else can substantiate that but in the meantime, keep it clear in your diaries smile

Southparks, usual place (crest of the hill) , usual times, Saturday 9th September, bring stuff, bring people, bring warm things as it's getting cooler, hopefully it will be dry still though smile

'someone else' she says after I'd said I needed to organize it, pfff :op

I'm' guessing the arg means you'll still be in SF on the 9th? sorry... it's when Beth's back, so she asked me to arrange something, first weekend in a while I think I'll be free too so if nothing was happening I'd have been pestering everyone anyway

Hey Yak.. wink

I got back on tuesday, so had chance to meet up last
night. I'm very impressed with everyone turning up in
the rain to sit in the pub instead of spin. I think K
has helped me become even less of a fair-weather juggler
than I thought! biggrin

And yes, I'll be back in SF on the 4th, assuming my boss's
have got their act together to my satisfaction... cool

And I'm moving up the iffley road this weekend, no more
nice flat, unplugged, disconnected - I'm growing strangely happier...

see you soon I hope hug

A word of caution - that wushucentral.com site has given me a blue screen of death twice now, when I play the vids directly off the site. Downloading them first (right click the link, Save Link As...) and then playing them has been fine smile
