The venue have informed me that they are cancelling all future bookings for the foreseeable future, so at present there are no scheduled throwing sessions.
In light of the prevailing wisdom on reducing the spread of coronavirus, which can basically be summed up as “don’t leave home unless you have to,” I’m cancelling the March throwing session. Apologies to those of you who are regulars, who missed out in February due to storms, and apologies to those of you who were hoping to turn up for the first time. But it seems wise to be safe.
Stay healthy, and fingers crossed for better news next month.
Unfortunately, as feared, the forecast for today’s weather is not good: strong winds and heavy rain, both peaking for the duration of session. As a result, for reasons of safety and sanity, there will be no actual throwing today.
However, there is alternative entertainment…
The Scout Hall is supposed to be free – it’s part of the venue reservation – so I’ll be making use of it to practice some rope dart, and I’ll be bringing along a bunch of bullwhips, so if you’re interesting in having a play with either of those, feel free to turn up.
Usual costs apply.
Our next throwing session is this coming Saturday, at the slightly later time of 2-4pm. But at time of writing, Storm Ciara is still going to be pounding the UK, so please check Facebook or Twitter on the day, as heavy rain or strong winds would mean we’d have to cancel for safety reasons.
Dates for the rest of the year are now listed on the Upcoming Dates page.
Our next session will be 28th July, 1-3pm, then the next session will be 1st September – there’s no session in August, due to availability.
We finally have dates for Spring 2019 – see the Upcoming Dates page.
Apologies for the lack of sessions in April, and in June – I’m tied up a lot travelling for work and personal reasons, and the venue is booked solid on the weekends when I’m around.
August is also going to be a non-starter, so I’ll try to get September dates arranged soon.
Unfortunately, I’ve got to cancel the throwing session for 31 March 2019, as I am unexpectedly out of the country on that day.
Apologies for this. I’ll be arranging the dates for April/May/June soon.
It’s a new year, and there are new throwing dates available – see the Upcoming Dates page for details. Hope to see you there.
Dates are now available for October to December – see the Upcoming Dates page.
We now have dates for July and September – you’ll find them on the Upcoming Dates page.
Unfortunately, there’s no session in August, as the venue is booked out for much of the month. Apologies for that.
Note that the July session starts at 11am, rather than 1pm, as there is already a booking at 1pm.
