Posted:Hello all,

I've finally made a brief return to the boards to seek some salve for the soul before buckling down for exam period. HURRAH!

In any case, I digress. The reason of the post was not so much to propose an event as to seek one. As of late November I will be moving down to Canberra, Australia, for about 3 months or so and am testing the waters to see if there are any regular, or irregular, poi meets in Canberra at the moment?

I've done a few searches and come up with some info about Friday night meetings in the Chess Pit, but most posts looked relatively old - is this still happening? If not, is there anywhere else I can expend my circular energies of a night?

Hope to see some, at least, of you down there, encompassed in flames smile (In the good sense, but of course . . . )

Posted:I was in Canberra just last week and ran into the Wells boys. Terry said something about Wednesday being Juggling night. Not sure if it's the equivalent of our Brizzy Monday Juggle Jam with all things circusy, or if it's just juggling... Will check and get back to you!

Posted:Brilliant!

My insatiable circularity can be slaked during my stay. Hurrah! And in the company of these learned spinners, all the better.

Thanks guys, and see you in 7 weeks or so . . .

Posted:Hey dear people, wavehello
I am wandering around the various Aussie threads dropping this excl information excl in:

Please check out the new ticketing info in the first post of the Woodford Festival thread and help spread it around to people you know... it might save a lot of people a LOT of hassle!
The gist of it is that people will NOT be able to buy festival tickets at the gate this year.. they have to be bought in advance... oh yeah, and the GOOD news is splendid juggle jam space there this year clap (as well as all the other good stuph...)
Thanks!

Posted:OK, so the story goes:

In my infinite wisdom and sagacity I cycled down to the Civic chess court one fine Friday eventide to find it populated by prepubescent children and accompanying adults watching a movie on the big screen. More importantly, the consequent dearth of fire-spinners left my desire for pyrogenic cameraderie unslaked, with the result that I span at home for an hour until I managed to set my hair on fire.

The point of this long and wasteful epistle being, has the spin night moved to another location/time/night? I've heard on the grapevine that Saturdays are spun every once in a while, is this the day? Any help would be most wonderfully appreciated and rewarded in kind if the opportunity ever presents itself.

Thanks to you all,

Jazz

Posted:When they have events on (most Friday nights in summer) we can't use the Chess pit until they finish (hopefully 9:30 sometimes later) so we find somewhere else. Usually not too far away, often over near the police station, or over in the big open area where the three paths meet (in front of the big music shop)



It is a bit of a random thing, sometimes no one turns up, other times there are quite a lot (well a lot for here). If there is a gig on or a special event elsewhere, they may spin there instead.



Saturday night is less often and less people.



One of the other places that spinning occasionally takes place is in front of Toast.
