Posted:So, I'll be back in SA on Friday (22 July) and since poi-ing in Amsterdam with LOTS of people was plenty cool, I'd like to start getting together with South Africans (gautengers in particular) on a regular poi basis.

I have a nice big yard with lots of poi space and there's a relaxed vibe, so meeting at my house would be cool, but I'm also keen for other places, just as long as I don't feel like the only person in SA doing poi (like I did for the first 6 months of my poi star existence frown )

With that being said, I'm still learning a lot and I'm not out to prove any points to anyone, I just want to get together, spin some fire and socks and ribbons, and just have fun.

I really hope that the appropriate people read this in the next few weeks because I don't want to spin alone any more.... *sniff*

ps: if you live in jhb somewhere, and this message has spoken to you, please send me a private message with your number and I'll get in touch with you - PLEASE LETS JUST SPIN!!!

Posted:hey, I live on the west rand... which is a good 45 min drive from the east rand (airport) and from Pretoria (the convenience of my life is amazing [sic]), but it will be cool if you can make it. I still need to have my first burn, tho... I feel so inexperienced.

I won't be in Joburg next thurs - sunday, but any time before that will be cool.

Posted:oh, and by the way... I just taught my best friend (who lives in randburg) how to poi, so I think there'll be a cool bunch of us beginners getting together, which is great because there won't be any attitude coming to spoil the party ....
