Posted:Did they give any reason to confiscate your poi, or were they just bored?
You could always practise with some sock poi, maybe weighted down a bit so they're similar to your fire chains.


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

Posted:Ahh that just sucks!

Ask them why they took them away. If it's about saftey, why dont you ask if maybe one of them come out when you practise to make sure everything's ok?

Like Bovril said, practise with non-fire ones until you get them back

Posted:What a strange world. When my daughter is inside doing her homework, I come in and say "Put that down and come outside to spin some fire poi!"

I think the problem is that your parents may be aliens Obviously they are not from planet HoP.

At the risk of sounding like a moaning parent. Have you got any insurance/fire safety in place for your hired gig at the local?


Are we nearly there yet?

Posted:they do have insurance/fire safety at the pub, i made sure of that when they askd me to do a ickle show for them! so i am a responsible teenager (thank god) my parents do sound like aliens, but hey, i will get them back, i will

but so far

sock practice: day 1
good session today, had my friend come over to gelp me with a 'set' for the show, seems to be going smoothly, yet all is not calm on the parent front. now, they have stolen my BMX in case i fall and slip on ice, which is all understandable, but, i am normally careful, so parents are slowly turning even more on my bad side.
i feel that my parenst have been changed by some govenrment agent, to stop me from changing the world for a beter place, using only my poi, my BMX and my hatred for facism, racism and sexism. the only thing i have left to keep me sane, is my band. can i keep my parents from practicsing, i hope so. will write soon

Posted:Grrrrr, you think your annoyed. My car got broken into (with a view to steal). It is going to cost $700-$1000 to fix, and cos I am claiming on my insurance, I will lose part of my no-claim bonus. And my car will be off the road for about a week.

So if you want someone to shout in a really grumpy way at your parents, send them to me


It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...
