Posted:Hey hoppers,
I've been back in Christchurch from canada for about 3mths now and I'm a bit out of the scene, I'm wondering if there's anyone getting together in Christchurch to play... with whatever really! I like to play poi mostly but I play a little, little bit with staff, sticks, juggling and spheres, and would be most stoked to learn more and share whatever I can hug
I'm pretty busy with school, but will do what I can to make whatever time available if somethings going on..

Posted:Only thing i've heard of is wednesday night unicycle crew meeting up in victoria (square or park, can't remember) the one that's a block north of cathedral square (i think)

I hear a load of non unicyclists meet there too.

I'll be there.

Posted:Yeah, I'll be at that, I'm a unicyclist too.

I've actually got some poi now, and some super nice juggling balls thanks to a visit to the homeofpoi warehouse, after the nasty NZ customs stole all my toys.

Posted:Just a note to anyone who wants to do poi in ChCh and searches - the unicycle meet is a good place to meet up with poi people, last week there were four or five people who spin at it. You might learn to ride a unicycle too if you're not careful.

It's Wednesdays in February, but then is changing to Thursdays from March 2007 I think. Victoria Square, block north on Columbo St. from Cathedral Square, 7ish.

If you're reading this post a long time after it was written email unisoc at hotmail dot com to find out when the meet is.

Also, the Tuesday night fire apparently last Tuesday there were a couple of people spinning fire in Centennial Park, I might go down to that if I'm around next week, cos I don't have my fire with me, only glow, and I need to have a go on someone's fire poi to keep my hand in.

Posted:Was awesome last night. It all went a bit fire staff afterwards, 3.5L of kerosene went up in flames, in a good way. Those massive staffs burn about 600ml in one burn, they were so much fun to spin, I think we stopped about 11:15 when we ran out of the second lot of kerosene that we'd bought. I have no hair on the back of my right hand.

There's plans for more fire next week. I'm gonna be in Melbourne next week, darn it, and then back to UK via the USA, so I'm gonna miss it.

Posted:On the Friday closest to the Full Moon - spinners, hula hoopers, drummers and like-minded folk gather by the Pier at New Brighton beach to NUT OFF doing what they enjoy most. It has been going for a few months and with summer on the way (surely...) it will only get bigger.

Think it starts about 10pm.

If you dive into a bathtub of boiling water with a mirror in the bottom, be careful not to panic or you may forget which way is up and drown
