Posted:Hiya all........

I am so stoked that my mate has finally completed the book she has been writing about poi. She has slaved over it for dogs only knows how long. Well just wanted to let everyone know.....hope you are all as stoked about it as I am.....
_____________________________________________

The book costs 12.95, is 144 pages long and is jam packed with over 450 tricks, tips and ideas and more than 500 illustrations! It covers everything I teach in my courses, from the first basic circles to all the behind your back stuff - and there's even a couple of extra moves you wont have done on the course. There's also detailed sections on spinning fire, choreography, inventing and developing your own style.

Congrats to Michal for sharing her gift with everyone and making a go (career wise) at something she loves.

If your interested in the book:

In giving love there is an equal grace.
Nor need one seek the aura in the face,
As love unveils the beauty of all things."

Posted:I'm not on the course right now, I started the beginner's course that started at the end of June, then did the intermediate one straight after, which I think finished towards the end of september.
I still can't get the btb weave sorted properly though, although I suspect that's down to a lack of practise more than anything else

Do you know if anyone else from HoP is on the course? I'll say hi to everyone I can who's there.

Posted:ahh found it, no one told me there was a search button.
I saw some the or the pages from the start of this book floating around a few months back, looked cool.
So what I was wanting to ask was, Is it true that the illustrations are done by Drews (glass's) sister? (he's fulla S**t, so I never believe him ) that monkey had a T-shirt with this cool robot mad city destroying crazy po-ier destroyer printed on it. I think he said it was from the book illustrations.
and has it got waist wraps in it? I just cant work out how to groove with those lil critters.
I heard that books are made out of trees, that can't be true, is that true?
and if I cant get to the party, can I buy them from the shop on HOP?

Posted:It's now definate - I will be turning up, I just don't know exactly what time yet, that's in the hands of whoever organises the trains.

Oh yeah, Louie - waist wraps are in the course Michal runs, so I'm assuming that they're in the book too .

Posted:hey king louie - you have just the right attitude as regards glass - handfulls of salt, man.

But yeah, the illustrations are done by his sister - BUT WHAT'S THIS ABOUT THE PICTURE BEING ON A T-SHIRT? The illustrations are heavily copyrighted. Glass, I know your address and I know how much you earn: I'm comming to sue the pants off you. Don't think I'm joking.

Posted:Hi this is Glass - Im signing in as Michal for a totaly new experience (Ive been a bit bored lately.) It feels more.....curly.

About the salt - yeah okay, I admit, I do like to exaggerate a fair bit. Fair enough.

And Michal - opps, sorry about the T-shirt: Cheque in post.

Posted:oh, okay. now things are startin to make sense to me. so glass, et. al., are you involved in writing this book? so all these "move counts/families" you and pk talk about are in it? i've been racking my brain, and those of helpless passers-by, in my latest thread over in poi moves, over nothing. i guess now it is all sorta moot, but not really. silly me.
can't wait to check out your book. i'm a teacher too. it'll be nice to have a reference for the world to be able to talk together about more advanced moves.

Posted:WooHoo! I now have my very own copy

I've not had a chance to read it properly, but the bits I've read look really, really good.
I'll post in a bit more detail when I've had a chance to digest it.
