Posted:Out of interest, what makes a thread 'official'?

My first burn was courtesy of Garbo, a very early HOP member who I happened to meet through University friends. Thats how I lost my fire cherry.

Posted:Hehe, fire cherry. I remember I did my first burn a few days after I turned 17 and I felt so cool going to buy the Coleman's fuel to burn with and making my own towel wicks... yeah, not the safest burn, but it was a first burn I loved.

Jeez, that was almost two years ago.


Don't mind me, just passing through.

Posted:17th July 2005, my first poi meet



Didn't do ANYTHING complicated for fear of burning like the Wicker Man. Did it topless too for fear of my clothes catching fire too.



Was kinda like losing your virginity, the fumbling, the fear, the excitment that you're actually doing it! only more fun...

Posted:after 4 years of spinning i finally got a burn scar on me. its on my upper arm. i hit it with a towel wick staff in thailand, not mine, and towel wick seems to burn your skin more than kevler.
i've set my dreads on fire. didnt make much difference to them. i didnt even know they were on fire. it went out by itself and i was performing and no one told me till after!
burnt lots of holes in pretty floaty skirts i shouldnt be spinning in.
my first light up i was so paranoid about catching alight. so was my dad. he brought out the fire extinquisher. now i'm almost too blase about fire.

Posted:Sorry, I didn't mean to be rude when I resurrected this post, I was just a little irritated at seeing 4 or 5 of the same threads on the first few pages of the chat section. first burns are always awesome, and great to share, but it would be appreciated by everyone if you took the time to do a search before you create a new thread. I'll stop now, as I'm getting rather off topic, and I'm just reiterating what has been said many times before.

Congrats to anyone that has had their first burn recently, it's such a memorable experience, and keep spinning!
