Chocfest will be happening on the 11th Feb 2006.



Joseph Rowntree School (YO32 4BZ) are very enthusiastic about having us

back, so we're all booked in. smile For those who came to CFX it's the same

venue, though we'll probably be moving the location of the urn so we don't

set the fire alarm off again. (For some reason that stuck in their

minds.) Their only major request is that high heeled shoes aren't worn in

the sports hall or gym, so if you were thinking of wearing high heels,

feel free to bring them but you won't be allowed to wear them inside until

the event moves to the Assembly Hall in the evening.



We have some very tough judges lined up for the Chocfest Chocolate Cake

Challenge, so don't forget to bring your preferably home-made chocolate

cakes (entry into the challenge also entitles you to a discount to CF

itself).



Things are looking promising for a cup-stacking workshop and demonstration.



The website should now have been updated wink

Yep, sounds awesome, I'll try and entice the good folk of Sheffield along. Free tea carries a lot of weight with us.

Will those capable of telekinesis please raise my hand?

I'm a student at York University, and I've got floor space for about 2 people if they want it. I'll definatly be going along, as will most of the Juggling Society here.

After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

Bumpity bump, in case anyone hasn't heard about it who might like to go. smile

I'm going to be running a beginner's staff workshop, and possibly helping out with cakes and stuff. Lots of University people who juggle and stuff will be coming, so it should be quite busy!

See some of you there!

Like I said above, anyone (you) could stay with me, I've got floorspace free (although you will be sleeping in a bed, so "floorspace" is kind of a misnomer rolleyes).

Unfortunately I live in York, so won't be able to provide transport from London frown

Next weekend! Woot! ubbrollsmile

So, I'd really like to do this. Especially after Sam and Tiff reckoned I should be in the show, but frown some things just aren't to be!

Enjoy it, all. Especially the solid chocolate juggling club! Please post photos of same smile

We've already had a trial run of a solid chocolate Diablo, but no-one tried spinning it... which was a bit silly really... I mean, what's the point if you don't spin it? frown

Looking forward to it though!! You coming Aimee? Or running into transport difficulties?

I've got no idea what the discount is for making any kind of dessert/confectionary... I'm just there for the staffing goodness! ubbangel

Buses run from University to the town centre and train station every 10 minutes or so, so it's easy enough to get around (I assume you're travelling by train back to Hull).

They were saying at the Scottish that you get in for half price if you bring a choclate cake.

I should be going!

Is it easy to get to from the train station?

Larry, the bus back goes straight past your house too, I doubt you really need floor space in York.
