ok - here's an idea, for next year maybe.

(this is just a suggestion by the way)



I was thinking how cool it would to have a tour of the UK, HoP style - Via coach or something. It may take a few weeks to complete, visiting anywhere easily accessible that has a HoP spinning community.



we could:-

pick up HoPpers along the way

visit HoPpers who can't usually get to any meets (or who can't get time off to join us but still meet everyone)

See this wee island's lovely scenery

and other fine things.



it'll be like a mobile PLAY or a Falmouth on wheels!

from cornwall to the highlands of scotland (or vice versa)



that's my idea, sadly i'm not minted and have no spendable cash so this dream of mine will likely stay a dream.



but it'd be fun though, yeah???

Cheers for looking, anyway!

Tammie. hug ubblove

tv is a good one. sell it to them in the right way and you're bound to find a company who would lap it up!

even if it wasn't for sponsorship, it help you raise awareness and probably get more work.

good points L_B.

something i think you'd have to avoid would be signing contracts. as soon as you do that you are giving the company more control than they should have, and it means the person who signs is in-charge/responsible/etc which can course unneccessary conflict.

maybe invite them to proformances etc but not turn teh trip into a show

Well it seems like its getting a bit harder to sort out, dunno about the tv side of things although think it could be funny.

But i reckon it would change everyone and they would try and tell everyone what to do and where to go.

Still stand by what i said before though if it happens my place will be free.

BTW i already have a beard and tash (just too damn lazy too shave as working nights you dont see many ppl) but i do like my eyebrows lol.

This does sound like it has the POTENTIAL to be real fun, but unless someone is prepared to devote a LOT of time and effort into it i doubt it'll happen, i hope it does, most of you have seen the effort dunc made for play, well it would be a [censored] load more effort than that needed!

Thats an idea but, if something goes wrong while a bunch of us are out there, what happens then? I dont know if buying from a scrap yard would give us the best engine to work with

Filming? It might better if we filmed it ourselves then sent off what we end up with (edited or not) to someone, then we dont need to worrie about the tv side couse we will have control over the tape, they might make a few tweaks here and there but they couldnt have anything in we dont want them too.

(oh im doing it like this couse i cant be notherd pushing the back button and doing the quote thing :P)

How often? Well during the summers holls sounds like a good idea, it only happnes once a year in the summer, anything more regular would mean everyone takeing lots more time off work and thats gonna be tough.

What do we do with the bus afterward: Wait till next summers comes around. Summer sounds better I think couse itle be nice weather!

I got one question, would it be one double deckers bus? Or two singles? (or more whatever)

1 double decker would be better but getting hold of anything within a buget will be hard enough so we'd have to go with whats going

this is a great idea, count me in, the whole tv thing is pretty out there, although it would be good for sponsoring, and it would be good to have shows and performances filmed, and like a home video esque type thing following ourselves around whilst on the bus...i.e tinklecam, shazcam. haha. ok maybe not right, but the tour idea is excellent. x

How about a Convoy? Just have a bus, and as many other vehicles, people on Bicycles and Uni's, skateboards attached to rope from the back, just tour like that, pitch up camp around the UK. Fuel is a big bummer, but if its like a Bring-your-own-Transport.
