Posted:hey everyone, as some of you may well already know, a few years past my time up here in sheffield a wonderful chap called p.k got together with some of his friends and created the local event which we all know and love; poi in the park. each year since we have been getting together every month to spin fire, teach new people, learn new tricks ourselves and generally have as much fun in the park with cool people as can be had, and each month id like to think we all come away from pitp enriched, sometimes slightly singed, but always having had a good time.

every year around the september/october time however we also have a big birthday celebration to mark another successful year of pitp, and this year we've got something very special lined up for you all.. :-)

sadly mr pk is no longer in sheffield to host the event, although he and his family are always here with us in spirit, but it has been left to matt and i to carry on his legacy and ensure every time we meet, our community is as friendly, welcomgin, fun and helpful as possible <not to mention ornage hehe..> :-)

this year, to celebrate the growth of pitp and the new pitps that have sprung up in recent years all over the country we've decided to go one bigger and better with our birthday celebration; the thought is, why not get ALL the national poi in the park meets together for one HUGE FUN DAY OUT up in sheffield?!

on OCTOBER 21ST 2006, in ENDCLIFFE PARK off ECCLESHALL ROAD/HUNTERS BAR ROUNDABOUT, from 3pm onwards POI IN THE PARK'S UK NATIONAL BIRTHDAY BONANZA begins! :-D

there'll be everything you normally expect from a pitp, good people, loads of food, plenty of colourful spinning equipment and their owners, along with such amusing games and 'wushu frisbee' and 'tree bounce challenge' and many more. this year though we're also going to be incorporating much much more, with some capoeira and breakdance teaching, along with contortionism and acrobatics on display for all to marvel at and learn <if your brave and bendy enough ;-) > and many more fun activities

we've also decided that this year we are gonna go one further and put on a bit of a show as well, so we're looking for people who are confident and happy with their fire spinning to maybe do a little routine for us. doesnt have to be amazing, and certainly there's no need for it to just be about the professional performers amongst us, more the everyday spinners just showing us the moves they love :-) to get the ball rolling i've promised i'll do a bit of a show as organiser so believe me after that no-one will look foolish and there will be no need for shyness..

i invite anyone who is reading this to please come up to sheffield for the day and spend some time spinning and chatting with us crazy sheffieldians on october 21st. the event will be going on all throught the day and evenign and into the night, with accomodation provided by myself, a few other generous house-loads of people and also we will be renting out the hall we use for the flying teapots overnight which should be able to comfortably sleep a good 80+ people so rest assured if you come up for the day <and do actually need/want sleep> a bed will be there for you and probably a nice cuppa tea in the morning too :-)

so i can gauge numbers and book the hall and possibly more accomodation if needed please could ANYONE INTERESTED get in CONTACT with ME either via MYSPACE, THE FLYING TEAPOTS ONLINE FORUM, HOMEOFPOI.COM, by PHONE if you know my number, or by EMAIL burningsinsaway@hotmail.com

those of you who are ORGANISERS of similar poi meets across the country, please also can you contact me on behalf of your group/community so we can discuss proceedings as there are a few more suprises planned that i want only a few people to be in on until the day....

on behalf of all those before me and those i represent now, i hope to see you all in the park in october :-)

peace n pineapples

Posted:Kyrian, do you mean for the birthday one or the one on the 19th? For the birthday one there'll probs be quite a few people coming in on the train you might be able to meet up with. Failing that I'm sure some kind of guide could be arranged nearer the time if you need it. I'm living quite near the station, well nearer than Si at least, given that he now lives miles from anywhere tongue So I'll come and meet you if need be smile

Posted:It'd be awesome to se you there Acciaio, I want to see that flying nessus close up wink There'll be a big hall for you to sleep in with the rest of the PiP people after the event. A train from Gatwick airport to Sheffield would cost between 20 and 30 if you book in advance or you could get a coach for around 40. If you can find some london spinners who are going it might be an idea to meet up with them first and see how they're getting there.

Posted:tickets will be a lot cheaper than that chap, at the mo if you book in a week or so's advance yuo should be able to buy singles for 6 quid each from midland mainline so definately worth checking in advance. there will also be a load of peeps coming up from london so check the forums here and also on myspace as that seems to be the way ive been able to get hold of most of the london lot, tho will be going down to spits in a week or so on a recruitment drive :-)

floor space wise we'll be using the hall again and my house plus a few others will be at the disposal of the spinning masses too :-) tom would you be all good to sort out some florr space? when you back actually chap, need to start running over plans for routines etc..

Just a flying visit but I'll be able to see exactly how many peeps could fit in my room smile I'm back properly on the 9th. Cannot wait! Hmm...plans for routines? Sounds suspiciously like you'll be throwing sticks at me again!
