Gayle and Strugz

There should be room for both of you @ mine this weekend... but i reckon getting people to buy stuff for me on BND is cheating... come midnight though beerchug beerchug beerchug

Great to see everyone again, I hope it's not long before we make it to another event smile

Thanks to Bov for the whip dude. I've just been scaring people in the office with it and will be testing it out at lunch time so I'll hopefully have some feedback for you soon.
Also thanks to Oli for letting me use his lovely white poi in Frog biggrin
Thanks to Alice for housing and feeding myself and Anna and for guiding us through Bristol.
I must return to work now, God can tell when I'm not working!

Posted:Herro, had a fantastic weekend, and met soooo many people!

Huuuge thanks to sandy, tim and all the rest of the guys (and girls), for putting up with the official gatecrasher, was great to meet you all.

Sandy and Strugz, the beer fuelled workshop was really good, learned absolutely loads, but i now have an injury to match yours sandy, from trying to get the matrix umm

thanks to the guys that let me spin your poi at ToF(garthy, i want those mesh socks!!).
And good job dave and rob, awesome spinning, was still seeing aerotech streaks this morning tongue

All in all, what a great way to waste a weekend (and some cash), just a shame there were so many jugglers. wink

Posted:my weekend has been

Synergy
BoB
Tribe of Frog
Circus Society (in Bristol)

Party...Juggle and repeat
if only every weekend could be like that


I was able to put faces to a few HoP names, and loads of people slept at my house (Also mine despite being called Tim&Sandy's) which was great.

Tribe of Frog is the best party I have been to in years, I had such a childish night. I slid across the wet floor in the top room, played cats cradle with some burst modelling balloons, (which I then flicked elastic-band style at people of the dance floor from the balcony), played frisbee in the chill out room at the top with a spiral modelling balloon, made myself a modelling balloon goatee (like a hat, only a beard), did some acrobalance, loads of juggling and loads of dancing.

course....I'm shattered now and I've got so little done today in work but aah well.

We didnt actually stay in the pub that long after you left strugz but there was much chilling back at ours after biggrin so a good birthday indeed.

Really great to see everyone as always and everyone who crashed at ours is always welcome anytime, its great having you about (even those smelly burnt toast slackers)

Great to see people i knew, and meet new people. Although i didn't really *do* much in true Bristol convention fashion. I think the most i did the Saturday was an awesome club passing workshop which frazzled my brain.

Sorry i was so slack didn't go back to yours after the Farm Sandy. Conor offered me a tea and spliff before heading back home, and we started a game of Go... then another, and so on 'till i realised it was 11pm. There went my "early night"
