Title: South-West Jams
Post by: Dimensions on 07 January, 2019, 15:24:23
I've decided to attempt to set up regular jams in Bristol and nearby areas (Exeter, Gloucester, South Wales), as I feel like there is enough people to try and keep this a regular thing.

Bristol will be the main home for these meets, but the plan is for other places to occasionally host.

The meets will happen every 2nd and 4th Saturday in each month.

Current Meet dates
26 Jan - Bristol, meet in Queens Square, 12:30
9 Feb - Hosted at Bath Upchuck (I won't be there, but is always a great place to meet) --> Thread (https://kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=3260.0)
23 Feb - Bristol, Queen's Square 12:30
9 March - Exeter, Princesshay 12:00
23 March - Bristol, Queen's Square 12:30
13 April - Bristol, Queen's Square 12:30
27 April - Cardiff, Stone circle, Bute Park, Cardiff. From 12:30. Pic/map attached below. EXTREME WEATHER ALERT! Probably cancelled? Turn up only if you're brave!
25 May - Cardiff, Stone Circle, Bute Park, from 12:30
8 June - Bristol, 12:30 Queens Square
22 June - Bristol, 12:30 St George Park, by the skate park, BS5 9EN. 14 min walk from Lawrence Hill Station, or 40 minute walk from Temple Meads Station.
13th July - Cardiff, Bute Park, 12:30 onwards.
27th July - Bristol, Castle Park, from 12:30 onwards.

See you all on the 26th!

I'll be missing this one, as I'll be on the People's Vote march. (Cheap coach return tickets from Bristol if anyone else fancies it:

)
Whatever you think of that, make sure you're registered to vote (https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote) if you're over 18. You know who always votes in large numbers? OLD PEOPLE! That ought to be the most persuasive argument that young people's votes matter!  :)

Anyway, back on topic, guess I'll see you Souwesters in early April.

Weather’s not looking on our side for Saturday, a yellow warning issued for wind. Would it be a good idea to think of alternative covered places for jamming?

I can’t think of many in Cardiff :'(

Post by: The Void on 25 April, 2019, 23:26:53
@tomdama_93 Yes, I was thinking the same - I'm unlikely to come over if the current forecast holds. I don't have any local knowledge though. @mreasyguy @Mikegee @BenPycroft24 ?

Wind looks mighty intense for tomorrow so it maybe a good call to cancel, check the weather tomorrow and see what’s going down

Yep. I'm out, I'm afraid. You locals can brave it out, if you fancy. :-) @mreasyguy @tomdama_93 @Mikegee @BenPycroft24 . Updated poster:...

Obviously you have been guessed that the next jam will be BKO weekened, so the next jam will be the 25th. I'll update on it in a week or so.

As discussed the next SWJ will be Cardiff (it seemed like they were owed one after last time)

Let's just use the same meet spot as intended, so:
25 May - 12:30 Cardiff, Stone Circle Bute Park

Can’t make this (8th June) as there’s a skatepark jam on that Saturday in Devizes (near Swindon) with all disciplines having a competition and a Kendama stand besides the skatepark...
This is basically the dream for me, but if anyone’s keen. Then feel free to join!
