Posted:LOST



Despite searching my house, my sisters house and asking Jon to search the boat it appears that I have lost my Hologram black and pink hyperloop poi. I'm gutted! The last time I remember seeing them was in Bodmin at the juggling convention. If anyone has them or has seen them please let me know. I'll be broken hearted if they don't show up frown

Posted:I'm glad i didnt see the 'no poi' sign because i probably would have chucked it in the bin. If a self professed juggler came to a falmouth meet they would never see a sign saying 'no juggling'. Maybe poi spinners/staff spinners are more open to diversity than jugglers.

Poi is just as difficult as juggling. I learnt the 3b cascade in about 5 minutes, i learnt the 3beat weave in about 10. Now, im learning juggling tricks a lot quicker than learning new poi moves. Is that because juggling tricks are easier and poi moves are harder? Probably not. Juggling is mainly about tricks and how many you can juggle, i've never seen a juggler dance with his prop like spinners do, ive never seen a spinner play with 7 poi, 6 poi but never 7. They are totally different disciplines and i resent the fact that jugglers seem to think their chosen toy is harder to master than poi is.

Ok, i cant juggle 5 balls but can a 'juggler' do whip catches or atomics? Why cant you recognise that juggling is a totally different hobby from poi and so has a different learning curve? It doesnt make one better than the other. Until the BJC i considered myself a juggler because thats what i was doing most of, thats where i was progressing because i hadnt been playing with my poi. Now, after seeing the attitude toward spinners and reading this thread, i'm a spinner through and through.

I just hope the EJC doesnt have the same closed view of poi and those who practice it.

Oh, and the whole 'spinners are unaware of their surroundings when they spin' is a load of crap and an offensive generalisation.

What.. and the massive whiteboard on wheels it was written on? wink

"If a self professed juggler came to a falmouth meet they would never see a sign saying 'no juggling'" - Correct, but the BJc isnt Falmouth. shrug

"Poi is just as difficult as juggling" - no.. no it isnt. It hasnt taken me 2 years to learn ANY poi move. I still dont have a solid 5 ball shower after 2 years.

"i've never seen a juggler dance with his prop like spinners do" You should Google video for Chris Bliss wink

Seriously, like a blind juggler, just drop it. smile

We all know poi isnt juggling and we know that some jugglers think poi is lame. Some spinners think juggling is lame. Horses for courses, get on with life.

Please, Please help me find my beautiful poi. I'm heart broken that I have lost them.

Last seen at the BJC on Bodmin, bright pink hologram one side, black hologram the other, hyperloop.co.uk cone poi. They have a pink and black ribbon tying the ends closed and have a juggling ball in the end of each. They were hand made by Gayle for me and I love spinning with them.

If anyone knows where they are please contact me as I will be very sad if I never see them again ubbcrying



Mini (or any other organiser)... was there any lost property at the end of the BJC?

Yeah, but how many jugglers would own up to having a pair of poi in their possession? tongue


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

you took the words right outta my ... keyboard i guess. biggrin

Anyways conventions are never perfect, you can't pleese all the people all the time & all that. Comes down to what you make of it & we had a fantastic time. I think they did an amazing effort FOR FREE!

Wish I'd known about the no fire thing before we set off though, coulda brought 5 more lietres of cider instead of all that parafin.

finally got my photos up, better late than never I guess.
