Just wandering if there are any other poi spinners / fire twirlers / fellow nutcases out there who are based in the UK? Am trying to get an idea of how big this is over here as i am from a little town in the middle of nowhere and have very few friends to practice with!! lol!

Also may provide some events for UK based spinners to come and perform at throughout the summer of 2007 as i am involved in some big coastal events...anyone interested, please shout!!

Anyone not in the UK, feel free to join in too! how about a tour?!

There are plenty of spinners in Britain, no worries there! Your best bet might be to go to your nearest juggling club. In the Glasgow club, there are several dedicated poi-folk, plus some people who do both poi and juggling. I'd say it's the same in every big city.

hey there! hug

The forums have a huuuuuuuuge sction for regular spinning meets and events, and also a "meet others" section. If you post there and say which little town you're in, you might find there's quite a few people close to you!! Or do a search for the biggest nearer town and find out if there's anyone local biggrin

There's plenty UK spinners! Like said above, best to search for your town/nearest places to you.

But for big UK meets look out for:
Play Festival - festival for object manipulation - usually around Midlands
Falmouths - last one is sept 06 though
Hell Fire - big meet starting next year - based in Cornwall

And any other random meets popping up. Juggling Conventions are great too - don't be put off by the name, a lot of poi people go!

Am based in Eastbourne. Been spinning with a group on and off for last couple of years, but the last 6 months to a year has been mainly off now so am interested in hooking up to spin and learn and just meet new people. Am insured too and am (provisionally) interested in the summer 2007 shows you spoke of. Do you have any more info?
While i'm at it, anyone in or around Eastbourne/ East Sussex who'd like to hook up semi regularly for a spin?Everyone else i know seems to have put it all on hold...

Funnily enough for some reason the number of Active UK HOPpers on the message boards seem to outnumber the ones in Australasia umm



(Then again maybe because the ones down under actually have nice weather to be able to spin outside whilst us Brits have crap weather, stay indoors and do nothing but b*tch on online forums... shrug)
