**EDIT**

Ignore all the stuff below this edit!

Until further notice - Thursdays are meeting "down the river" on Millmead island between The Brittannia pub and the Yvonne Arnaud theatre.

Parking is available outside the Brit', or in the council offices just past this, or if those are full in the large car park by the George Abbot pub.

It's a short (5-10 min) walk from Guildford station.



Keen people arrive straight from work (around 6pm) with the majority of people turning up around 8pm.



Ignore the stuff below this as it's not likely to happen in the near future, and during the summer it's nice to be outside.

~~~~~





This is currently provisional - it might be shunted back a week into February, but just thought I'd get the ball a-rolling...



So, we've been granted the use of a MASSIVE indoor space for Happy Thursdays. Approximately 3 tennis-courts worth of space eek

And it's FREE biggrin



From 7pm - 11pm (Every Thursday obviously) - though again, this might shift slightly.



Sadly we've lost a fair number of regular Guildford spinners, some for a short period, others for longer - but to counter this we're throwing the night wide open.



We want breakers, poppers, lockers, caporeia-istas (no idea how to spell that...), drummers, uni-cyclists on top of all the jugglers, spinners and manipulators.

Even Ed wink



Just waiting on a couple of final bits of info - for example i'm not sure about fire play yet - but potentially this could be an AWESOME night - loads of space, lots of light, warm, music and lots of people to learn off biggrin



Once I get a definite start date, i'll post a map and give more details of how to get there, but vaguely:

Car: It's about 2 minutes off the A3 (so even Londoners don't have an excuse wink ) at the Spectrum Sports Centre/Woking junction (as opposed to the Cathedral/University junction).



Public transport : You can get a bus to very near, and getting back into town/station will just involve lift sharing smile



(For climbers it's about a 5 minute walk from Craggy Island)



Woo, and indeed, hoo biggrin



It would be wicked if we could get LOADS of people down for the opening night *HINT HINT*

Down the river, from 6-ish (for the keen), or 8-ish for the nocturnal ones.

Say what!?

Len is f*cking off?!

It just so happens, that I need to be in Midhurst on the 23rd... I might be able to make poi by the river in that case...

Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.
Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Water can flow, or it can Crash.
Be Water My Friend.
