Posted:hey luciano, welcome to HoP. We're just starting to make the meets a more regular thing, so you've come at a good time really. I think the next meet is going to be a week on sunday (october 12th) we meet around 7pm at St.James's gardens, which are located to the side of the anglican cathedral.
Do you by chance have a profile on Facebook? if so, look up the liverpool fire art academy, thats us, and that gets updated with all the information about meets, aswell as other social events.
p.m myself, flamer, or loewan if you need more info.

Posted:There seems to have been a lot of people who got lost in attempt to find St James Park. Here's a map of the place:

We usually hook up in the clearing marked (7) on the map. If you walk up China Town side then you will be on the right of the map and should see the Cathedral (2) and weird building (6). The path down to the park will be next to the entrance to the cathedral.

Posted:i wasn't talking about us using the space, or going to the workshops, merely us and them merging as a network of spinners. We have the ability to point newbies in their direction, so they can learn and develop their skills in a learning orientated environment. Then, once said newbies feel they have the skills they need to spin with fire, they point them back i our direction, and the network of merseyside spinners gets bigger.


oh, and thanks spin doktor for correcting my link!

Honestly? I have never really paid for the pleasure of the art during my time (apart from going to festivals) so maybe I am a little sceptical in the whole concept of paying to learn. I mean I would never say no to meeting new spinners nor would I stop fellow spinners from parting with their hard earned money but what's the point if people could acquire knowledge for free? If the money goes towards solely towards the cost like rent then its all cool, but I think its a little weird if some people think they are good enough to get paid for teaching when the likes of MCP are releasing online tutorials for free.


Anyway, a reminder for everyone for Poi in the Park!!! There is going to be a mass attendance from Manchester and it looks like its going to be a big one because of the cancelled Play this summer! If you still haven't booked your bedspace, you really should book it now!

Hi all,

I'm Warren. I'm the organiser of GOT?POI, www.gotpoi.co.uk. I'm also Joey's brother.
GOT?POI first workshop is on Wednesday 15th Oct 2008. The first workshop is FREE! Please try to come along. I just wanted to let everyone know about GOT?POI...

Mission statement: GOT?POI aims to promote and teach skilled arts around Merseyside. We aim to provide social networking, where skilled artists and novices can learn from each other and further their abilities. Music and refreshments are included in each workshop.

We have attracted the attention of the Manchester spinners, and some companies that teach circus skills around the UK.

Where and when?
6-9pm Wednesdays
Muse Building
82-84 Duke Street
Liverpool City Centre
L1 5AA


What activities are available?
We hope...
Poi
Bocks
Staff
Devil Sticks
Juggling
Unicycling
Tight rope
...and possibly more.

Why do I have to pay?
We have overheads to pay such as rent and equipment.

After reading feedback from this forum, and from others - all expressing concern about the 25.00 (for 10 workshops) charge, I have decided to give members a choice how they pay, either 25 block payment OR 3.00 per workshop.

Advantages:
Beginners / intermediates members get good quality, structured lessons from 82p/hr.
Advanced members - can use the building and meet other members in a secure area (it's difficult to spin outside in the rain.)
Instructors get paid fairly. This scheme enables instructors to get paid for each person they spend time teaching.

All the latest information is on our site, www.gotpoi.co.uk under the workshops section. Have a question? E-mail me: info@gotpoi.co.uk.

Honestly, you and Joey should come to Poi in the Park. Then you can decide whether you should charge people other than the overheads.

Posted:I personally do agree Lowan, its not something i would pay to learn. But, if somebody thinks it will make a viable business venture, and there's people who are willing to pay to learn, then who am I to stop them?

Good luck to them, Joey has always been a good teacher, he's always willing to show me a thing or two when we meet up, and he's always patient.

It would be nice if we could all meet together sometimes aswell though, and not always be two seperate networks of spinners. As that just leads to an 'us and them' situation.

Posted:Oh no, I am not objecting to us spinning together. As a matter of fact, I was going to pop down with Suraya until the Wii got me (Metroid was amazing).

I am sure you know first hand the communal sharing spirit that is prominently on display at the likes of Falmouth and Play. And thats what the whole fire spinning community is like nation wide. Even the workshops for Poi in the Park are free of charge! In fact, the core ethos of HoP, DMP and most major online spinning community are based on the sharing of knowledge for free and it would be a damn shame if the whole thing mutates to having price tags for the next generation of spinners. And I would sincerely invite Joey and his brother, who might perhaps see their skills as commodity to be sold, along to some of the some of the national fire meets and see that not everything is about making a buck.

Posted:Just came back from Got?Poi and I am kind of sold on the club. It was really well run in a very comfortable environment. It was very well organised with proper syllabus and learning structure and under the new 3 pounds per pop price scheme, and as it was explained since most of the money goes back into equipments, I am well up for that! So apologies to Joey and Warren for doubting them in the first place. tongue2
