Posted:Hey Guys



2006-May Spin

27/28/29 May 2006 @the level from about 14:00 each day



2007- Easter weekend spin.CANCELLED!

7/8/9 April 2007 @ the west pier on Brighton Beach from about 16:00/17:00 each day. Watch this space, a date in the warmer months is being discussed.



4/5 August- Brighton Gay Pride

As we do every year we all mostly go in fancy dress and normally set up a little base in Preston park where we also have a bit of a spin, right in the middle of teh festivities. Unlike last year the poi stall will be back again this year, so we will more likely be near there. Any out-of-towners comming and need a place to crash please let me know beforehand. The Fair in the park is on from 12-8pm on the saturday and there is also an over-night free party on the beach which people may be interested in , but most don't know about wink



http://www.brightonpride.org/



I'll update with more info closer to the time.



Hope to see loads of you there!

The plan is to spin in the usual place on the beach by the west pier (the old burnt-down one)each afternoon from about 4/5. If the weather/wind doesn't hold out we will go back to the level, if it rains,I'm not even going to leave my house.



We have crashing space for out-of-towners, but you need to let me know if you are comming beforehand please.



I can also provide directions for all those who require it.

Bring snacks/drinks/toys/fun.



Hope to see quite a few of you there.

Posted:awww, Sam hug The baby Lee and I will be in London again to see Placebo on the 9th. If you arn't doing anything, why don't we meet for a couple of drinks beforehand? biggrin

Moving back to topic, I've gotten a few PM's from some peeps interested in a Brighton spin. There will be no more this year unfortunately (I can't handle the cold- Yes I know I'm a wimp- so am reluctant to try and organise one this year).

I promise that as soon as winter is done with and the weather starts to get better that I will update this thread with monthly or bi-monthly spin info. Fire on the beach seems to be in order.I look forward to seeing you all there next year.

Much love

hug

Posted:Hello biggrin I just got back from Guildford spin, lovely people and I hurt lots

I learned a couple more tricks and 1 is just a really impressive halo wink i could probably teach you blu in about 5 minutes, then you just need to practice.

3 weeks till we come and see you blu wink


A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

Posted:Ok, no final plans yet but I'm thinking of arranging the first Brighton spin of the year for easter weekend (7/8/9 April 2007).

Spinning each day on Brighton beach by the west pier (the old burnt down one) from about 4/5 in the evening. If the wind is too cold/strong, we can always move back to the level.

All are welcome. Out-of towners requiring crashing space need to let me know in advance please.

All those requiring directions, let me know and I can help you out. ie: walk towards the sea, once you get there look to your right, you should be able to the west pier. Thats the spot ubblol

Also those of you who have frequented the halls of casa del Blu might be interested to know that we have moved, so there is more crashing space and different scenery. biggrin

Come on all you lovelly lovelly people, come and play.

The first post will be updated shortly.

biggrin

Posted:We now have that park over the road from us so no need to walk all the way to the level, plus it was a bit rubbish there.

Also I don't think we should do it so early on in the year. We done it round the same time last year and it was still windy and cold. It will be better to do it on a later date when we know the weather will be better biggrin Then we can go to the beach all day and have the added bonus of going swimming and maybe a few hours on the pier to go on rides and do silly things. Then at night we can make a fire and spin on the beach biggrin It will be awesome!


Colourful but not very bright.

Posted:We can do another one later in the year. Last year the weather had been nice it was just a fluke weekend. I don't deny that it will not exactly be summer sun, but it's a nice long weekend to play in. I'm very keen to learn a couple new things.Plus there are loads of other things going on over the summer.

We can't really spin fire in saint Annes well gardens as thats where they have that thing for the blind. The last I heard, the fire performers had an arrangement that they were allowed to spin fire, but only on the level? Dunno? But I suppose we could give it a go but I wouldn't be surprised if suddenly people appeared from the bushes and hosed us down (Happened before in Greenwhich ubblol)

That gives us one big event/festy a month from April-September. I cant really try and pack too much into the summer months because my mom is going to come for a visit at some point.
