After taking my poi with me to EF last year, I found a couple of people who were interested, and who'd done stuff like this before. I also know a load of furs like to practice circus skills.. So, I was thinking it might be nice to get a few of us together during the day, and have a bit of a play. I Imagine that we wouldnt be able to play with fire (too many flammable fursuits and people to be safe) so I wouldnt bother bringing firestuff with you - but it would be nice to go play outside for a while, spin some poi, twirl some sticks and the like.

So, anyone interested?

i've been interested in poi for a long long time....actually...alot of things with fire.
i've been practicing the art of fire breathing lately. if i got more time i gonna teach myself juggling, and maybe at some later point poi, but it'll be glowstick poi or foxy socks for practice first. i won't be spinning with fire anytime soon. maybe next year.

so yeah. if somewolf thinks it's a good idea i could join with the firebreathing.
maybe juggling

(and somewolf. this is for you)  thanks for making somewolfs job easyer.

Ah, that was you?

Yes, I was one of the persons interested in this, and I'll be interested again. Hopefully the weather will be a bit nicer then.
Of course I'd also be interested in playing with fire, but we'd have to make sure nothing unexpected can happen.

You're of course all welcome to gather outside and do things any time.

However, you could even talk to Cheetah and offer it as an open-air SIG and request a timeslot.
That way everyone will know about it, and when and where to gather.

(I did that with a kangaroo-boots try out event at EF12... and found myself buried in a crowd of interested attendees.)

A juggling SIG would certainly be interesting and could attract a small crowd, though it really depends on the wheather. But we should keep all fire-related stuff out of it. Doing it as performances with clearance from somewolf is ok, but handing out burning things to persons new to it will get us as a minimum a very unhappy wolf...

I'd propose to suggest it as a SIG where everyone can join and try out or teach others. Surely there are more furs out there who knows how to juggle and can demonstrate some tricks.

Well, doing it as a sig would be fun. I'll contact cheetah and see what he thinks. I'd be willing to do some fire spinning, but I will have to talk to him before even thinking about bringing anything like that with me. I would ask that no one who hasnt been spinning for at least a year do ANYTHING with fire, and I wouldnt recommend anyone bring any fire stuff unless they're well practiced in it (and have cheetah's permission)

Anyhoo.. I'll get in touch with cheetah, and update everyone as I know whats happening.
Sound good?

Well, I've been practicing glowstringing for a few months now, It's like poï, but I learned that your skills improve way faster when you practice with others, so a little meeting would certainly be a great idea :D

Although I saw quite some furs apt with poi near the dance floor, this circus SIG like thingy apparently didn't really work. Or I was at the wrong place all the time. A bit sad, I had hoped to learn a bit from you and do some stuff together for fun.

Let's see, maybe next year.

I have some poi :)  Not had much chance to practice with them so far but will have done so before EF15, so if this is going on in 2009 I'd love to come and say hi and swing my poi around with some of you hehehe  :D
