Posted:Do you have to be a student to go to the Uni Juggling Society?

I *think* the East Oxford Community Centre group is called the Cowley Road Jugglers, but I'm really not sure.

Is it definitely gonna be in the park this Wednesday?

I so want to get to some of these spinning meet-ups but I've got residentials and all sorts going on at work, which is proving really restrictive. Grr!

Posted:well it sounds like sunday would be ideal, as eithers good with me, but vixen would be about too then, if that's cool with mico, would be good to get some more down too.



the uni parks are a 5 minute walk from me, but I sugested southparks as they don't close at 9.30 (or at all? i don't know, certainly seen people in there very late wink )



it depends what people want to do really, I certainly wouldn't be tying to spin fire at any time in the uni parks the officials would go mental, I've already been told off for "twiddling my things on the cricket pitch" lol

Posted:That was my question really smile

Yeah, I didn't think fire in southparks would be a prob, it was the uni parks I knew were a no-no, and they close before it would be dark enough to be any fun anyway.

anytime people would like to meet really.

From 8pm, southparks, as a tentative first suggestion to get the ball rolling? as way, waay back in this thread people have done that before (years ago)

I hope mico checks back in though, as he seemed more intersted in the uni parks, they close so early we could do both tho if people are up for a full evening thing smile

Posted:You know shortly after I joined the uni club, I drove all the way to birmingham to meet some more spinners..

they asked about the poi'ers in the uni club (I hadn't been to the East Ox club at tht point) and I said there didn't seem to be many really good poi people, mostly jugglers/staff.

and the reply was, in unison

"but you have BETH!" smile

will be nice to meet you some time, it seems your ledgendary

Posted:heh, mico you replied as I was writing mine.

I'd like to see your rope dart. I've got jet li's shaolin temple DVD that has the chinese rope dart champ of the time on it which is impressive if you'd like to borrow it, unfortunately short clip though.

8 start? bring anyone and any toys you can? smile

So 8 it is. I'll ring around for extra peeps. It should be
pointed out (for first timers) that if everyone has met at
the top of southparks, then the park can look empty form
the road at the bottom.

See you then. I'll try and remember the Col4 dvd too.

Posted:Southparks - is that the one under Magdalen Bridge? Or is it the one kind of across from St Giles and maybe a bit near the Department of Experimental Psychology?
Or is it a whole different park?

Posted:Yakumo - seriously? Aww brummy spinners are nice! who did you meet?

South Parks is the easiest park to find in the world! You basically find Magdalen bridge and walk away from town towards Brookes Uni and Headington, up St Clements road smile Then its the gigantic park on your right.

Vix - Hell yeah, seems like aaaages since Swindon (coz you werent at Falmouth, loser tongue), can't wait to see people again!
