Posted:Hey, How you all doing - I was at Dpercussion last weekend and hooked up with some incredible people. I spent a good 2 hours watching impossible feats weavesmiley I scored my first Poi lessen courtesy of Zoe and a blinding set from the stanton warriors.

As a result of that meeting everyhting seems different now and I am posting on a poi forum and recovering from my first earth shattering wipeout with poi. I never realised such a pretty little thing could cause so much pain when it connects with the soft fleshy parts.

I found this site and was wondering if anyone here was there?


I've got all the eagerness of a kid with a new toy, <mainly because I am a kid with a new toy ubbloco> I work crazy little shifts and am looking forward to 4 days off now and was wondering if anyone had plans to hook up in town this week/end?

Apparently its going to be the hottest day of the year so far on friday.....

Hi Mikey Boy, welcome to HoP

As Will says, there's a thread on Events called Manchester Spinniers meet or some such drivel ( wink Tobi). Keep your eye on that and sooner or later we'll make a decisions about when we're meeting next...

Next one I think is probably Sat 27th, in Platt Field Park, we usually meet up 4ish.

However, if you're dead fired up , get yourself to playfestival.co.uk in Shrewsbury next weekend 19th-21st. On the Manc thread they'll be talking about it and there's a few going by train from there if you wanna join 'em. It's gonna be great and you'll see HoPpers in their natural habitat, if you're ready for that! eek ubblol

hope to see you soon hug

Yes go to the events section on the forum and leave a little post under the manchester meets, theres also an invasion of england wich Skulduggery is trying to arrange and she wants it around manchester because of the easy transport links, skip to page 48 and 49 to get the relavent stuff, and dont forget to post an introduction thread under introductions.

Posted:There were lotsa people there - I'm terrible with names and only moderatly better with faces ooooops. I was a full on poi virgin until I was offered a pair of socks by Rick????, and like I say was very kindly taken under the wing of zoe and I think martin was her boyfriends name - other than that no idea who was who. I didnt see anyone with devil stix, unfortunatly. I was a bit awestruck to be honest and stood with my mouth open in complete awe, on hindsight I should have said hello wave to more people.

But thats all to be rectified here and at play hopefully.
I'm getting to play by driving, I've talked a couple of friends into coming with me one of whom doesnt finish work till 6 so my first mission of the festival is to get there and get my tent up before it goes dark.

Hopefully though we can meet up in there, is there a particular place your going to be or is it the normal ... around somewhere?

I cant really express how excited I am about it, I went tent shopping today and had my ear chewed off by an over eager salesman who gave me tent 101 for idiots. It was all very heplful but I still am no closer to owning a tent redface I'm sure itll all work out for the best though.

Take it easy and see you all at play hopefully sunny

Looks like they may not be necessary biggrin

I won't make it as I'll be down south visiting people and going to Brighton Pride and hopefully go to more meets...

Have fun guys!

I doubt that we'll be allowed fire in the arena's but its round the corner from the gasworks. You could easily park somewhere near there and leave the fuel in the car for later biggrin

I'll be taking many glowing things just in case wink
