Posted:Swindon's First HoP Meet



Location: Lower Shaw Farm, Swindon, Wiltshire.



Lower Shaw Farm





Date: 3/4/5 February



Price: Fri - Mon: 25, or 10 per night



Price includes: Fri and Sat evening meal (vegan but damn good, that's coming from a meat-eater!); Breakfast (on a help yourself and help each other basis); approx. 35 beds available, plus warm indoor crash space, maximum capacity of 50 people. Everyone must bring sleeping bags. EVERYTHING on first come first served basis!



Various activities available in surrounding area chosen by you. A few ideas: Possible trip to nearby (20min car journey) stone circle

or to local park for mass fire fun (not enough space for everyone to spin at once on the farm)





There is some indoor spin-space incase of evil evil rain.



There will be campfires, possible fire-sculptures if people are interested and are willing to chip in a couple of quid for the paper edge roll (more details can be got if interest is expressed).



Anyway, that's enough for now.



Much love, Jacob ubbrollsmile

Posted:ok, plan so far is:

Friday afternoon/evening: Arrivals, blagging beds, have a cup of tea, a wonder round the farm, a swing on the rope, a chill in the net. Generally just meeting old friends, and new ones . . .

There will be a fire sculpture, so we will begin making it on Friday and finish it by saturday night . . .

Vegan dinner will be served at 8ish. If you want dinner it is great if you let me know before hand, so we make enough. Even if you won't be arriving on time, we can save you some. This applies to Saturday evening as well. So pm me anytime before you come to let us know.

Friday night: Fire fun as always!

Saturday: A trip to Avebury stone circle, with a picnic and spinny juggly stuff. This would need about 3/4 cars to get everybody there . . .

Sat. evening: We can stay in Avebury for dusk and some darkness to do some fire by the stones and then head back for dinner, or go back for dinner while it is still light, and leave fire until later on . . .

Sat. night: African drum jam by campfire, burning of fire sculpture, and mass fire spin.

We should also have a nice sized sound system to pump the tunes for the weekend (so bring some CDs!).

Sunday will mainly be hanging out having a juggle/spin, and generally recovering from the amazing party we'll have saturday night wink There will be an optional walk to a nearby country park to climb some trees and stuff smile There is a possibility of having a go with some BIG kites at the park, if the conditions are right . . . something a bit different smile

I'm well looking forward to it now! biggrin

Posted:Oh yeah . . .

I have been contacted by the localish press asking if they can do a 'feature on Swindon's First HoP Meet'.

I don't have a problem with it, but I just thought I'd let you guys decide . . .

I'm guessing it would involve a photographer and reporter coming over for about half an hour to an hour to take some photos and talk to a couple of people about what we're doing.

What do you think? It would be good to know asap, because they are waiting for a response . . .

Cheers guys x

Also, i have no problems with the press being there. At least they asked, i was spinning with some friends in the park on bonfire night, had loads of pics taken of me without permission and saw them in the paper a few days afterwards!
