Posted:Today i was doing devilsticks randomly in town chatting to my mates when i was ambused by a group of no less then 20 chavs trying to break/steal my devilstick or assualt me or do both. The city has got so bad that i cant even take my poi outside with me.

Posted:Sorry to hear that Mike-

I must admit that I was skeptical about congregating and playing conspicuously in Gloucester following previous experiences- that you can't even walk down the street is really rough though frown

I remember Gloucester! I come from Stroud originally, about 20 miles away but much friendlier. I've heard friends mention similar problems in Cheltenham too.

I have the same issue where I live now in Middlesex, I can't do poi near where I live for fear of getting abused by the local chav brigade, even in my own front garden.

Going out in a big group makes me feel a bit safer, but doesn't really work in reality when there are 20 chavs who all really want to fight or give you a hard time. I really don't know if there's a solution to this issue, except spinning at indoor meets or private venues where the little f*ckers can't get to you!

Maybe go out of town a bit, there's loads of fields and woods not far from Goucester where you'd probably get less chavs than in the town centre.

Posted:YEah its just a shame that the spinners have to move from the chavs causing the problem. Our indoor meets are greast we have one weekly and nothing bad happens.

Yesterday just toke the biscuit a little bit though. I am currently talking to the counical about having like a grasss area just for spinners and stuff so maybe soon somthing big will be going on.

Chutney: I know what u mean.... There is always robinswood hill which is chav free for future meets in gloucester i suppose

Posted:Robinswood Hill! I was trying to remember the name of that place...

Haresfield Beacon is really nice too, if you have the energy/car to get up there... bit windy sometimes though. We used to go picking mushrooms there about this time of year.

Yeah it does suck that you have to move rather than them. Maybe talking with the council and police more will open up some more solutions.

Posted:Its sad... if I try to play with my devilsticks outside my dormatory I get attacked too. We should all get together and show them whose boss! And if that doesnt work we can always shank them.

Hello, Goodbye, its all the same.
Dont argue, its not even worth it, I will shank you...

Posted:Have you got access to the uni campus? Can't remember what Chelt & Glos uni campus looks like, but I live near my old Uni campus in Middlesex and it's fairly safe/chav free there... well, still get quite a few odd looks from people, but no agression. Maybe worth talking to a college/uni about negotiating some space you can use, or starting a student club? Just a thought.
