Posted:So I've got a parade gig tomorow, been a while since I last did one.
And it got me thinking:
How do you refuel staffs/ poi on the move?
I have always had a chaperone to carry a plastic bottle with a sports cap to squirt onto my wicks, and a heavy duty plastic bag (one of those insulated ones for carrying frozen goods home from the supermarket) to catch the excess.

But what do you do?


Never lie down with someone who has more problems than you.

the best smiles are the ones you lead to wink

Posted:We pretty much did the exact same thing the last time we did a parade gig. If you're performing solo it's a bit harder as you'll have to bring someone with you to carry everything, if you're with a group someone should be refueling and carrying anything that isn't currently being used.

Posted:We've done some parades but never solo.. W have one person carrying a wheelbarrow type troley and then the performers redip themselves...

We've thought about waist holsters to redip fingers and sticks but haven't come up with anything that wont drip fuel all down your legs if you're jumping around...
