Posted:I know theres another play thread, but this the after thread so u dont have to trawl through the other one to find out what happened!



Personally I just wanted to say thanks to Dunc for sorting a fantastic weekend - well impressed!

and sorry to all the HoPpers i didnt introduce myself to coz of being a fraidy cat and for running away without dishing out many hugs coz i have to get to work!

But heres a hug for all the folks that were there - stunning weather and great people...roll on next year!

Posted:Well I just got home and I felt I had to come and say thank-you to Dunc and his merry band of helpers and organisers, to George for still being up for all that she did even though just moving from a-b was hard work (good luck with the birth hun!), the uber tent crew, who as usual made me feel much loved and welcome in their tent kiss, all the people that put on the saturday night show, you were fantabulous one and all and to everyone there for making the weekend so much fun. I'm now off to bed to try and catch up on some sleep. I'll do a more detailed thanks later tomorrow when I don't feel so half asleep.

YAY Play! I had a blast!

Nearly all of Polar Lights - LED poi (thanks to everyone who spun them or shared ideas). I'll put my (non LED) videos up when I've fixed the gallery.

Huge thanks to everyone who contributed.

I ended up buying 2 tickets, only came for one night, and still think it was well worth it biggrin

Damn I'm knackered! ZZZZzzzz....

Post Festival Update

I've been asked by Dunc to close this thread now. He'd really, really like as much feedback as you can give on the PLAY web site . So post on the forum there or use the Contact Us form.

Thank you!



That means that before I head off to the comforts of my bed, I get the last word in this thread. So...





To Dunc; the Play team; everyone who contributed; and everyone who was there: from the bottom of my heart I wish to thank you for creating such as wonderful, open, happy and fluffy festival in which we all played till we could play no more and simled until our hearts were overflowing. Thank you.

Has such a good time. Both the weather and illness held off for PLAY. Now I have no voice at all and is pissing it down in Bexhill.

Just...completely mad.

I don't think I've hugged that many people in a weekend before. ever.





best introduction - Dunc

"hello ect...Can I see your eye?"



best goodbye - Pete
