SATUADAY 12TH NOVEMBER 2005

ENDCLIFFE VALE PARK, HUNTERS BAR, SHEFFIELD biggrin



To celebrate Poi in the Parks birthday we would like to invite you all to come and join us for a weekend of misadventure in the crazy picski land of sheffield once more.



First and foremost i'd like to apologise for the huge delay in getting this even finalised it has been an incredibly complex, hair-pulling, knicker twisting (,cake eating) time in sorting out but we reckon we are now in a position to set up the best time we can hold for all you lovely people to come and enjoy! hug



PIP will be on satuaday in endcliffe park, entrance on hunters bar roundabout (off the A625). Starting at 3PM and finishing at last-man-standing ubbloco



As with last year, we should have St Andrews Church hall booked from 7(ish) for indoor fun, walmth, tea and cake - hurrah.

The hall should be avalible over night with heating, kitchen and toliets, they church holders ask us to keep it clean.

(note: this is where we run the teapots circus society meets so there is laodsa room and plenty of hieght for juggling)



- New for this year: we are hoping to get a nice sound system set up for the evenin (either at the hall, or at our house) and enough UV in the back room to make all you techno hippies glow! peace [Durbs, you gonna come play? and with your funkin' cannon?]



The hall can sleep up to 60 peeps if y'all feelin nice and cozy. however there are a few things to note:

1) there is NO smoking inside the building, though outside the front and in the courtyard is fine.

2) there can be no fire spinning on the grounds - their rule guys

3) we'll proberly get evicted at around 8.30 am for the sunday school



BUT!!! and as some of youy may remember from last year. . . the party will not stop there:



for those who wish to carry on grrovin/spinning/other miscellanious nighttime activities biggrin we will be moving the fun to crookes valley park (behind the university of sheffield) which is 10mins walk from the hall to spin, drink some beers and hope not to full in the lake!



- our house, as well as some other teapot member's back onto this park so there will be walmth and tea and good company if it start to get cold.



Alternate places to crash:



we can sleep about 20 people at ours and the other guys on the teapot committe say they have room between 5-10 people each depending, so no worries for places to crash you are all welcome (though of course ours will have the best cake wink )

Also Step has offered a couple of places for those who may want somewhere quite to crash out.



Sunday will be a "see how it goes" kinda thang though crooke valley park (and its containing pub) would probably be the best bet as it means people can store their gear at ours.



Also NEW to this year (drumroll please . . . )



SPITLEFIELDS, Londons Tuesday meet up, organiser, the illustrious Monsieur Spacemokey (Ewan) is getting involved in helping you southen-bound monkeys up to play and enjoy the festivities! ubblove



Ewan is hoping to use some of the spitz account to hire a minibus/coach/paying for trainfares to get you crazy cats up here.



- in note, however, midland mainline have a current promotion on for 6 single tickets between london and sheffield, so it still wont be an expensive trip up.



Last but not least:



i just need to say, at the moment the hall is not garentteed though i hope to know in the next week whether we can have it or not, if not i will look for another big space for people to stay.



also, if you are coming up could you please let me me know who you are and whether you need somewhere to stay so as to help make this event go smoothly.



if your coming up from the south and are interested in the kindly offer of possibly FREE travel with the Spitz-O-Mobile please get hold of Ewan as soon as poss. so he knows how any spaces to book for.



you can get hold of:

Me (Lolli), by PM or on o7966 77 4854;

Solace, by PM or on o77o8 653 491;

Ewan, by PM (dubiously, lol) or on o7779 322 530



any feedback or ideas would be welcome, we just want to get something groovin' going on for everyone to enjoy. the only thing to bare in mind is that if the date need moving, sheffield winters get cold and rainy and it will soon be too bad for outdoor spinning!



other information/updates/maps extra will be posted here or on the teapots forum:



Teapots homepage







hope to see y'all very soon and smilin

much love



Lolli and Solace. xx



Ps: Poi Poi Poi, i tried to email you earlier this week, not sure if youve got it. does sphereculism still want to get involved in its celebrations?

Posted:Hey guys,



Lolli and I have now decided that the 12th is definitely gonna be the best date for it. Bearing in mind Leeds Convention, it just seems wise to have two juggling/spinning type things on different weekends. Its also easier for Lolli and I, and as we're putting it together, I think we get a bit of influence in the decision.



I've heard rumour that some people are concerned that Synergy is on the Friday and that this may cause stamina issues for coming up to Sheffield. Baloney! Need I remind that Poi in the Park was founded on the principle that if you could walk to the park after a night at Headcharge (slightly more taxing on the stamina than Synergy), you were cool enough to be there!...Not only that, but Squarepusher is amasing live (if you havent seen or heard of him, you need to have done by the end of today), and would be a much more rewarding experience than attending a night you go to every month.... sorry.....just needed to get that off my chest....."not coming to Pip 'cos of Synergy"...pah!



So... get yourselves up to Sheffield for the weekend of the 12th. No excuses.

Hey Hey you crazy cats,

sorry for not getting back to yous on friday. . . its it a crazy weekend wink
as Solace says, the hall has been booked for the12th of november.
The deciding factor was definatly Leeds Juggling Convention, who were kind enough to move to the 19th so that shefcon could be in march! Thank you guys

the hall will be availible from 10.30pm! (sorry mini-dunc) and we will need to vacate it at 9.30am on the sunday.

we getting a huge tarpulin to rig up at the park so there should be shelter there incase of rain.

i'll put map links up soon

see y'all soon, hurrah!!

mech - i'm gonna do you that cd an bring it with me!

can't wait to see all da lovely pip-eeps again... bounce biggrin
