Posted:Thats right! Poi in the Punt will happen again this year on the earlier date of Saturday 31st May. I have tried to find a date which doesn't clash with anything (much) else to try to get maximum participation and also hopefully a date which will be fixed (i.e. last saturday in May) for the forseeable future.

The day will include a punt trip (funny boat with big stick for those who dont know- see the vid below) on the river cam involving much sillyness and possibly some falling in (yes thats me falling over in the vid redface ).

Theres usually time for a bit of lunch, some spinning in the afternoon followed by a burn and BBQ in the evening. Theres even talk of a tea tasting workshop with a variety of teas all the way from China courtesy of myself and Lazyangel. I'm sure we'll think of a few more as the day approaches too (ideas welcome) biggrin

There will be limited crash space available on the saturday night and if we get a lot of interest we can investigate local campsites to accomodate.

We've had a lot of fun doing PITP the last two years and this year will be no different. Look forward to seeing you there!

I'll post more details as the day approaches. In the mean time I encourage you to post your interest (so we can get an idea of numbers) and take a look at last years vid! weavesmiley

daz: hey there have we met before? who do ye know in cambridge? oh and welcome to HoP smile hug

disclaimer: THIS IS NOT A CONVENTION!! there will not be shops selling juggling gear, or a big gym or anything else approaching the nature of a convention (like expensive tickets and organisation): It's a meetup of ace people, who want to go and mess around on punts and generally spin and otherwise manipulates the objects around them. And in Simta and Jo's case, skin up

Bov/Will/Jo: yep we have bed space for you: as stated earlier, I have bedding (mattreses of various types) for 12 people: I have a small garden that will take one (3-4 person)large or two small (2 person)tents. EVERYONE is advised to bring a sleeping bag (apart from Cambridgians, who have homes to go to) just in case! I also have a fair bit of floorspace, but at current numbers, everybody should get a bed!

If there's loooads of people, we'll put them up in undisclosed sites across cambridge (ie Siege's, Motley's and Akgraphic's places)

If there's looooooooooooooooooaaaads of people, there's some fairly suitable camping areas nearby that I can direct you to smile

I'll be coming by car... where should I head for? I lived in Cambridge for a few years and have the power of Sally Sat Nav so it shouldn't be to bad to find you.

Simta - I'll give you a bell nearer the time to sort lifts, but if you could get to Burton, possibly the night before, that would be sweet.
