Posted:I've heard alot about jugglers having different varieties of games they play against each other (combat, endurance, club collecting....) but are there any games for poi? staff? others?
A google search came up with this: http://www.inspinerate.com/poithegame.php

Just wondering if any of you folks out in HOP land had thought of anything awesome.

Posted:Good Post!
Having just come back from the SJC I noticed a definite lack of poi or even staff style games in the juggling olympics.
There was only a one handed butterfly competition (won by Gilim! wooot!)

After cheekily calling the competition old school I was asked by an organizer what competition I would make. I could only think of a orbital competition... which would suck for anyone with sock poi

maybe a continuous under-the-leg walk race would be fun!
hmmm... there must be heaps

Also why not try simulating double staff patterns... with rows of people instead of staffs!

Posted:poi golf that takes me back i remember playing it in a barn in wales with dunc etc circa 2006/7 ish.

basicly its golf but you have one poi in your hand and one poi on the tee postion. you spin the poi so that it catchs the poi on the floor and flys it into the air. normaly with hugely comical effects. very difficult but the possibiltys of it are endliess


he he i am mike the amazing gloscircus person who is mike.

Officaly an exception to the Poi Boys are Girls Thing
