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?

what's the rule about smoking in the hall?



By smoking, I mean apple goodness... (also known as shisha)





As Pyrowill and UCOF point out, there is no smoking allowed in the hall.



It is permitted outside, but it would be great if people ensure tab ends are not left on the ground, as this is Sheffield juggling clubs training hall, and, in the past, the church owners have asked for consideration on this.



As for 'apple goodness' I'm not sure what that means, but, if it's illegal, and seen by the hall owners (who do make occasional appearances), then there's a fair chance that use of the hall will be withdrawn from the juggling club in the future.

Posted:hmmm...

I should've read the first post again... redface

For those that don't know, Shisha is not illegal. Granted, It looks it, because you have to smoke it through a Hookah pipe, but is 100% legal.

Shisha is basically tobacco leaf, dipped in molasses, packaged, and sold. Nothing else.

On the box, it says: 0.5mg nicotine, 0.0mg tar.

They don't add the crap that they do to cigarettes, and it smells a lot nicer, too!

Would anyone like my shisha to make an appearance? (as featured at PLAY festival, and Falmouth 4)

Cuz it's not fun when it only takes two strides to catch him wink



regarding smokies.....



I had a go on the Shisha at PLAY and it was wicked! A really nice smoke peace



Yeah one thing I noticed about last year was all the dog ends on the floor, could we just put a metal bin or something similar outside for folks to use, that we can then empty into a big bin in the morning?

I think that all depends on the others. Also sleeping arrangements could be fun! biggrin

Me, Tim, Vixen, Beth and Oli in the back of my van! It's still quite oily in the back so it could get a little dirty ubbangel ubblol

I'm probably leaning towards saying no to this. I have very little money and am moving house soon.

If there's an overwhelming need to go up on the Friday and "Push Squares" then I guess I could accomidate this.

What does everyone else in the van mission think? Oli, Beth, Vix? ubbrollsmile

Posted:Hey again guys.

Its great to see so much interest in our little project this year.

To answer the questions so far:

Kyrian, the cheapest destination to travel to in Sheffield is probably gonna be using the megabus to get to "Arundel Gate"...if not, you'll want the national express to the interchange.....on that note, can those who are using public transport let us know when and where they will be arriving so that we can organise guides, sherpers and camels to get you to the park.

LTC, you could bring your shisha if you want, but we already have a few up in sheffield, so it might not be worth lugging it up here (as I'm assuming its a big-bad-boy like ours). Also, it might be better not to have it at the hall, as although it is legal, it doesn't look it...and as much as an explanation helps these situations, the old phrase "tis easier to forgiveness than permission" is a little inacurate. I reckon it'd be better to leave it at home, and if people are desperate to try it, we can pop to the houses that have them in Shef.

Oooh, and the Plump DJs are also playing on the friday night, and having seen Squarepusher before (I got bored of his fret-w***ing quite quickly), I'm gonna be trying to get a "crew" to the Plumps. If anyone wants to come to an evening of music that might be a little easier to understand (ie, you wont need to heavily under the influence to dance to the Plumps, where as its quite challenging to dance to S-Pusher whilst sober).

C ya soon guys
