Posted:One or two things to note.

-Please be aware of safety whilst spinning fire.

-I urge everyone to invest in a fire blanket, or at least to bring a damp towel to smother errant flames.

-Do not spin fire unless you have asked another person to watch you specifically for your entire burn, as quite often you'll not notice that you're on fire until it's too late.

-Try not to wear synthetic clothes. They'll melt onto you and keep burning at the slightest oppertunity. It sucks, but it's worth the extra effort NOT to be in a shell suit wink

-Check all your equipment before you spin. If you are worried that any wicks or joins may be loose - don't use it.

-Keep the fuel away from the people, and away from open flames.

-Do not use anyone elses equipments without asking. Have a play first to adjust to the new toy before lighting it too, as it may respond very differently to what you are used to.

-If you haven't spun fire before, get a more experienced spinner to give you some advice and look out for you in case anything goes wrong or you panic.

-If you have spun fire before, you'll know not to try dangerous/difficult tricks that you are not totally comfortable with as this is when mistakes happen that you'll regret.

This list only just scratches the surface, but should stop a lot of the stupid accidents that happen whilst spinning fire in big groups when people don't pay enough attention. For more info on Fire Safety please look here: http://www.homeofpoi.com/articles/FireSafety.php

Although if I can fix it i'll only be able to bring my diabolo as I haven't figured a way to carry a 5ft staff on a motorbike yet...

Could somebody stop the room please... I'd like to get off

Posted:er....we went into town at some point, I kept borrowing your socks due to a lack of my own, I had a t-shirt with my name on it, we both got frustrated with isolations, I was there when you had a lie down on the nails...er...Kit and Kat were talked to quite often...hmmmm, I should be more interesting and memorable thats all I can think of.

The fire spinning was fun although my own wasn't exactly good...time to return to practicing with sock covered fire poi I believe. May make the chains a little smaller as well currently undecided. I did end up in the wrong park for quite a bit of the spin but eventually got there after confusing Ros by using someone elses phone as I was out of credit. Now need to find more parraffin before warwick on wednesday.

Posted:Hi guys wave

I will deffo DEFFO be there on Sunday, might have a couple of mates with me, might not shrug and I'll have lots of lovely new monkey fists to play with ubbrollsmile

Kieron.....I might be able to help you with Iso's a little if you want, not sure how to help apart from give you patience tho, it's the key ingredient to learning isolations wink

Been juggling lots lately, seems to take less valuable space than spinning when there's a wee one around, it's surprisingly tiring! Spinning takes much less effort! ubblol

See you all on Sunday hug

Has anyone found indoor play space yet? Uni's are full of them, there must be something to be blagged for free?

True, but throw in the word 'Fire' and then it becomes a whole different problem biggrin

The spin itself, for me, was a bit short because, as my name suggested, I got lost as soon as I got into Selly Oak frown
Not having a map and having 'helpful' locals who didn't know their own town didn't really help me get there. Found it eventually and had a burn but I was mostly mesmerised by other people's spinning biggrin

Posted:You've already helped Dunc...indirectly, took most of Saturday and Sunday morning at Play to learn isolated buzzsaw but I can generally do that and isolate just circles now..I think I can anyway. However I have no idea what isolated weave is so its a bit hard to know what to practice, help with that would be muchly appreaciated.

Also realised the weight of my sock poi has messed up my ability to isolate my much lighter fire poi...*goes to stick socks over the wicks and practice with them again like before Play*

Oh - and everyone try to get fuel sorted beforehand! There's a hardware shop in Raddlebarn that sells paraffin though you'll have to get there before 5 (it's the road bounding the park on the uphill side (towards the station). Other than that........... your guess is as good as mine ubbrollsmile

Posted:Still yet to find a hardware store in Brum city centre area that sells paraffin...might have to travel to Selly Oak just to buy paraffin ubbcrying

Oh, by the amount of paraffin people mooched off me last Sunday, I should get free paraffin this time biggrin



How much is paraffin for whatever size can by the way?



And has a sheltered fire-spinny place been found? The rain today kinda just put me off a little for Sunday frown Hair got wet and now it's fluffy... angry



[edit] Considering to buy one of two things to expand my collection of spinny stuff. Should I get a set of pretty, floaty and smooth flags which may look a bit camp (confused) but I actually really want because of the reasons previously stated (apart from the camp bit), or a set of glow poi which can still be purdy, can be used anywhere fire can't but runs off batteries confused
