Community & Events / London Meet Sunday 13th Dec
« on: November 05, 2009, 05:23:05 PM »
It's long over due, but here we are, a London meet in December :)

I thought it'd be nice to have somewhere in doors this time so I'm going to try and sort out the rag factory (brick lane) to hold it at. I'll find out about costs on tuesday if people are willing to chip in.  Obviously depends on the amount of people getting involved and costs to see if this is viable.

A giant thanks to Silver for doing all the filming, working out how to use the editting software, editing, feeding me and being a jolly good bloke.

This is a slack combo filmed with a 60fps camera we think.

Community & Events / DiaboloHouse2008
« on: January 25, 2008, 02:28:35 PM »
Just an idea at the moment but I reckon I'll be inviting a bunch of diabolo bothers round to my house when its empty (18-20th July, just before WOMAD) posting here to see if theres any takers for drinks and diabolo. might be able to find a barn or village hall if theres a few who want to come. Was gonna see about a holiday home type thing but this is cheaper.

Peace and Love

p.s i'm near Stoke-On-Trent and would like it if people were old enough to drink, either by lying about there age or actually being over 18

Gear / Henrys grey fleck string
« on: August 27, 2007, 05:44:57 PM »
is this really rubbish?
last night i  replaced my string with the grey fleck as i had run out of all others having been told that more or less straight away its good instead of having to wear it in. had a little practice last night and all was well, came to use it today and it did nothing but wrap up from a single wrap. i replaced it with more grey fleck and again, nothing but wrapping up.

is it that maybe my whole reel is dirty or is it just rubbish?

p.s no offence to henrys my favorite string ive used is henrys yellow
