Bellsspinning, welcome to Oxford! If you find yourself looking for something to do tonight, or any Wednesday night for that matter, join us for some spinningy fun! weavesmiley If you stick OX4 1AB into Google maps, that's the Angel & Greyhound pub - go through the car park at the back into the park and that's where we are from 7ish... hope to meet you soon biggrin

Well.. ubbrollsmile

The place is the Angel & Greyhound pub...walk up from
the roundabout, on the road to the left (St Clements)
and turn left when you see it (1 min walk). The gate
to the park is behind the pub.

Look!

Hope to see you xx

Hello everyone, I'm really new to poi and looking to pick up some hints and tips. If I can make it to one of your regular meet ups will someone be able to give me a couple of pointers? In return I can bring my camera (I'm a part time pro photographer) and take some cool photos of you in action!

Please do come along, one of the main points of meeting up is to swap pointers, learn new tricks, teach people, make new friends, etc etc.

and a camera is welcome, I usually have mine allong, but the more the merrier, especially when it's attached to someone who actually knows how to use one properly! biggrin

details of current regular meetings in oxford are a couple of posts above, sat/sundays (sat pref) happen frequently, but irregulally after people post about it in this thread here.

Aim high and you'll know your limits, aim low and you'll never know how high you could have climbed.

Saturday 12th sounds like it should be a good meet. That day I'll have become a proper Oxford inhabitant... I suspect I'll be feeling a bit disorientated and may need a few of these hug

Having said that, much as I'll be sad to leave Reading, one thing I won't miss is spending up to 2 hours getting home after evening spins... 3 minutes' walk from the Angel & Greyhound is much handier smile

Hi Alice, we meet on Wednesdays in the park behind the Angel & Greyhound pub (here) from 7pm.



There's also going to be a meet this Saturday night, probably in Southparks but times etc for that haven't been finalised yet. Weekend meets aren't regular like Wednesdays, so check back here to keep up to date.



Hope to see you tomorrow night smile

I'd like to get the ball rolling on the Saturday thing and say I'll be in southparks from 8pm on the crest of the hill, theres a couple of benches nearby, a place where people have built fires not too far behind if people wanted to move there later.

there's more readily available parking at the top end of the park, and its not too long a walk across if you entered from the bottom instead.

It really is the only decent park in oxford thats convenient, and also doesn't hoof you out at a measly 9.30 smile
