Great in that case maybe a few pointers on some moves, dont suppose any help would be out of the question? I can only do basic moves and powermoves are more advanced do you kno n e where in norwich that teachs?

Hey, guess what??!!!

It looks like we've got somewhere to practice over the summer in Norwich.

As from mid june'ish, we should be getting hold of Notre Dame school gym with crash mats, trampettes, pommel horse etc. This will hopefully be going on every Sunday for about 2 months and each session being 2 hours. We will not be avertising it as lessons but you'd be more than welcome to come along and practice with us and help you out (As long as you help us with the hire fees! It's 12 p/hour, and there should be around 8-12 of us at each session.

So keep an eye on this board, as soon as its confirmed, I'll let you know.

Oh and Bendie! Not all of F-10 are from Suffolk, how dare you associate us with the S word!;)

Doing alright thanks, getting over a back/neck injury quite well, calming it down on the gigs as work seems to be taking over at the minute but Worm is dieting like a madman, has put himself on an alcohol ban and is trying to get himself sorted for Lords of the Floor in a few weeks. Is Butch still out there?

Jamesey_2002 -

I'm still waiting for Jack to confirm the booking (don't want to drive 50 miles only to find that the hall is not available).

M-Phatic organised a few sessions at that location in 2001 but was finding it difficult to do the same this year which is why I'm a bit sceptical that we have access to that venue (otherwise I'll be booking our usual hall for practice in Suffolk which you are welcome to come along to).

If Jack can confirm the booking and has arranged a music source I'll happily come along and teach you some moves.

heh, yeah, the photographer seemed to have a 2 second delay with his fingers, we were holding freezes for ages and he'd just catch the landing (obviously couldn't "tell what it is yet" :)).... hence the only photos being of headspins and M-Phatic (who is so slow that the delay didn't matter :D ).

There are some more pictures on one of the links from that page, nothing to get too aroused about though ;)
