It'll be super

- Saturday all sorts of tomfoolery followed by some quality home cooking by moi.
- Trip to the pub or home poker or some film/halo/cod on the 46 inch lcd.
- Sunday morn, a fine breakfast and some circusoc.

Trust garner, it'll be a good one.

Oh yeah and get the megabus over, dirt cheap and takes as long as the train with the rail works.

yes, i'll be there too.
haven't actually learned any new tricks for *ages* as i've moved away from my old club, and seeing as you're all better than me, if anyone's feeling kind enough to teach me a few bits and bobs it'd be muchly appreciated.

Megabus, no question unless you want to spend £35.  £15 return at the max.  I'll happily meet you at the bus stop to be a makeshift tour guide.

Alex, the megabus leaves from london victoria right next to the train station and gets into central bristol about a 20 minute walk from bob. 

To everyone else, I look forward to it!  I've been on a 3 day all nighter binge to get a coursework done (still plighing through now) and am pretty sick to death of it in all honesty.  Looking forward to seeing a good contingency of diaboloists from the level of response. If it helps I'll have some crashing space if anyone really doesnt want to head back on saturday. that way theres a roast and circusoc to enjoy the next day.

Always good to have a convention a 15 minute walk away.  Quite a young contingency of diaboloists this time but good to see Jem, Susannah, Chiok and Ben amongst some new faces such as John and Andy.  The space was a minor issue but a shame at times with it being too cramped to really do anything without fear of taking a face off.  Other than that it was a good day, learning Kendama from the void and Tom, the back to front sun (why has it taken so long?)from Chiok, and having a good catch up basically.

Vux's performance was somewhat let down compared to the bristol all weeker by the soundtrack delaying but it always gets me when he lands a mini genocide to duicide pirouette to mini genocide as a finale trick.  It's by far the best diaboloing I've seen in person.

Oh yeah, sorry to Tom and Susannah for not turning up on Sunday, I was k-o'd by the two hours of Kendama showing how unfit I am even with bending my knees.  I honestly didn't fancy the hike up a massive hill and in the end some friends turned up unexpectedly.  Saying that I think a Bristol reunion should be planned for a Sunday sometime in the future maybe when a few more can make it.

Cheers again all

Ah, I was wondering. We got there quite late anyway.

It was a good convention, but as is always the case with one dayers, far too short.  Not long til Chocfest though :)

Good to see you too Louis, and the rest.

I enjoyed it but thought it was a bit hectic and I had a sore throat after from shouting because you had to shout to be heard!  :D

Yes, shame I didn't get to meet you all due to having to scarper early but had a ruddy good time nonetheless and it was great to see a few old and new faces. Finally nailed Andy's underwhip-wristbreaking combo by the end of it, too :-)

Can't make Chocfest but I'll hopefully see you all again at Birmingham.
