Ola!

7th October I'll be doing a rope dart workshop... I'll bring a couple of spares but if you can bring your own!

The best ropes to use are marine lines or cotton bondage rope (my favourite!) and I'd reckomend something soft on the end for a weight (tie a sock poi on the end of some rope for a basic one) for beginners.

See you on Tuesday ( ...or Friday at Luminopolis :~) )

Hi all,
thought it was about time that i posted something on here. I'll be doing a contact workshop this tuesday (14/10/08) It would be really cool to have a few people come, as it helps to have a few people at the start. I'm always there opening up so i'm allways happy to teach, something. I'd also like to thank everyone that come's every week to support us. I feel it's important to keep spinning @ going. Please tell yor friends. It would be really cool to get more people every week. Thanks everyone see you on tuesday :-)

Woo!
Yeah!
Go Toast!
etc. etc.

I believe there's even a strong Guildford contingent turning up this week too, so the night will probably descend into drunken chaos and abuse. Apologies in advance for that.

I've got a nice little list of tricks to teach people, hopefully of enough interest for most levels.
If there's anything in particular people would like to learn, let me know and i'll see what i can do smile

hiya all,

Well as kev said the last couple of weeks have been great around 60 people, so i just wanna thank you all for your support.

I'm really looking forward to the party it's gonna be loads of fun. Just wanted to add some news about that. I've been working on a live VJ project over the last month.

Well frock me it took ages to find this thread but I'm probably just locationally challenged. Anyway, I think a respectable period for mourning the death of old Spitz has now past and I am now ready to come to terms with this new Rag factory place. Hopefully bringing some other Guildfordianish peeps with me. See y'all tomorrow... grin

Maybe. Depends if I can get someone to drive from Brizzle.

I'd best come up with some sort of renegade routine, huh?

C'MON Ed! I'd drive you. Except I don't have a car. And I can't drive. And I'm not in Bristol. But still, all that hypothetical effort I'd put in for you, you need to put in whatever hard slog is necessary to get yourself there. Really.

Dear All

Our Xmas party was a great success we had about 15 fantastic acts in the show and a turnout of about 150 people. We have raised some money to invest in some new toys and we have a little back up funds

so a very big thank you to everyone who came and had a great night, a huge thanks to everyone who helped set up and take down the area. it looked fab.

Thanks to all those who contributed drinks, lights and anything else,

And a special thanks to Chris brown for helping in the planning of the event

What do you think of a summer party????

We will be meeting all Tuesdays through the Xmas and New Year and we hope to see you there

Have fun.. We do!!!!
