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!

but it'd be cool if there are no noise restrictions in future to have a part of the campsite for families with small kids/people who don't want to be kept up all night





We had lots of family camping space in their own field this year, and yes we plan to have plenty family camping space away from the late night noise next year too. We want lots of families/children to be there enjoying themselves so will be planning for it smile

Posted:A big BIG thank you to every one who came out to Play! I had an amazing time, and can't wait for the next one. I'm not gonna mention names, as I hate leaving people out, and my memory isn't nearly good enough to remember all 300 of you!

Someone picked up my firestaff at some point on Saturday night. I'd quite like it back really. It's 6 foot long with 8 inch wicks and a white stripe in the middle. Tis mighty heavy too. I know it's unlikely that I'll ever see it again, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

Much love to all

Posted:Noooooo..... Just got round to checking my kit and I'm short by one big burner poi (I've got one but its not much use without the other) frown

I must have left it by the side of the fire spinning area on saturday night.

Reward of some glo-sticks and a contact juggling ball if I get it back. And I'll buy you a beerchug next time I see you.

It has Nylon double finger loops (with firetoys written on them), then a 23" chain, then a 100mm wick (normal tube one not a monkey fist knot or cathedral fold).

Thanks again everyone for a wicked time.

Posted:Wow, that was the most fantastic weekend I have experienced in living memory. So great was it that I'm only just getting to a stage where I can sit long enough to write about without running off inanely to babble on about how the whole thing was to anyone who I can encourage to listen to me smile

Right, a couple of major thank yous are in order after the mass quatities of general good naturedness I encountered all weekend!
Obvious one first to Dunc and everyone else who organised/ran workshops and performed for just being fantastically excellent and putting all that hard work into making the whole weekend so enjoyable. Smiles around from this corner biggrin hug

2. Thanks to Sandy for managing to teach me the technique of contact staff, I would never have got it without ou dude hug

3. Thanks to Kev for the fantabulous swinging club workshops &, of course, for the chilli vodka ubblol Oh and just so you know, I have appointed you as my new master hug

4. Thanks to Bov for being an amazing inspiration on the club swinging front (I need to hang around you more dude!) hug

5. Thanks to Ro for the continuous lending of your beautiful yin yang clubs (I have now bought some) they had such an amazing positive effect on my weekend hug

6. Thanks to Nate for letting me use your absolutely gorgeous gloclubs, I had a lot of fun playing with those hug

7. Thanks to Durbs for letting me borrow his brilliant aerotech poi (my first tech spin, yey!) hug

8. Thanks to Skully for that superbly macho outfit ubblol (I'd forgotten how much fun it was to dress up!) and for the lovely chocolate injection hug

9. Thanks to Kath and Auntie Lynne for the Johnson's Baby wipes after I made a mess of my hand with that whip hug

10. Thanks to Pink for the germoline without which my hand would have probably become infected (it's healing up nicely by the way smile ) hug

11. Thanks to MattyB for the rather expediant lift to the train station on Sunday, much appreciated dude. Kieron did make his train in case you were wondering hug

oh and finally thanks to Will for not stealing my trousers either while i was or wasn't wearing them wink I promise to bring them with me to every gathering I attend so long as they don't migrate to your bag! hug

Blanket thank yous are in order for everyone who attend for keeping the vide incredibly positive and making the weekend thoroughly enjoyable, I feel privalaged for knowing each and every one of you. hug

Just a few other comments:-
I thought the length of the workshops was just right. Just enough to share enough knowledge to make good contribution to your repetoir without over-exposing you.
I also thought that the warm up session ran by Rob onm Saturday was a brilliant idea. I think it is very important that we expose the idea that although spinning is relaxing, it is still exercise and so warming up is important.

Only extra thing I was sorry not to see a return of was the double hula staff matrix, those of you who were at Falmouth will know what I mean wink

I think I may have to take a break from my travelling of France next year to come back to Play 2!


You can spend hours playing with minutes!
