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?

twas wicked fun. I wanna live in a hall like that! (Except maybe more clothes on Mech and less mooing at 5am ubblol )

Thanks to everyone you were great. biggrin

Sorry If I was a bit grumpy in the sunday morning until I ate breakfast. redface (Special hugs to Kev hug )

All you Yellow van travellers will be happy to know the side door is fixed and sliding happily and I'm in the final stages of getting a new CD player / MP3 player / DVD player for the van.
Thanks for putting up with my sometimes erattic driving! I'm a man and can only do one thing at once and if you talk to me and expect an answer then I'm not concentrating on the driving! ubblol Only one near miss as far as I can remember! ubblol


The down side of this is that you all won't be able to sleep while I drive you back as I'll listen to loud heavy metal to keep me from falling asleep on the motorway. biggrin

Posted:yes i am in Shef on saturday and sunday, i sent both you and you lovely a SMS last months about it.

There will be a meal at a restraunt noodlemania on west st on saturday night at 8pm if you want to come.

However time is short and i have so many people to see in only 2 days so it is the easiest way in which i can see most people in one time so i hope that you can make it.

you have my number, drop me a SMS.
