I still think there should be a compulsory tax for americans who've ripped off english town names, with on the spot fines for those who automatically think that they invented them tongue

I lived in colchester for 4 years, ending last summer. Really wasn't much in the way of poi, got a few meets together and we spun after dark a few times in castle parks and the st boltophs ruins (photos here, here and here). Most of the time I just took the train down to clapham on the weekend. Spitz is do-able (just), as it's so close to liverpool street station.

its wierd- almost all of the towns in new England have English town names (duh) there is a colchester right near and essex in VT. I also think there's a Norwich, England (or maybe Norich)
I apologize for being an insenstive and presumptuous American

There is the beginnings of a juggling/spinning club starting up in Colchester. At the moment we're looking for a venue but we're currently meeting informally at infrequent intervals (how vague can I be!)! PM me your details and I'll keep you up-to-date on whats happening and where. So far there are a few of everything (poi, juggling, diablo, staff etc) so let me know and come along! juggle weavesmiley welcome devil

Hey im trying to get in contact wit anyone around essex Dunnett_Jamie@hotmail.com

The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it. ~ Terry pratchett

Hi...is it quiet in here or is it just me....

Just to let you know that the Colchester meets are starting again thisWednesday from 6.30pm in Castle Park by the bandstand. I may be a bit late as I have to work until about 7pm but there will be others there. The park shuts at 8pm but we then plan to move to middle mill for some fire! Hurrah!

Help! I'm looking for spinners/jugglers/performers to entertain 400 school children on Friday 21st July at about 12 noon in Colchester. The children will be making the shape of our new building to recognise the gallery's commitment to education, and a local army helicopter will be flying over to take aerial photographs.

If you're interested or have any queries please e-mail me karen@firstsite.uk.net

Thanks!
