After trawling the web for staff spinning tutorials, all I can seem to find are a section on the Home of Poi website and a few youtube videos. Anyone know of any good staff spinning tutorials hiding on the web?

I'm a filthy Briton, we don't have such fun.

I have seen an episode of Family Guy where Meg becomes a flag girl because she's too ugly to be a cheerleader. That sort of thing?

Uh vaguely.... only more kick ass than the show led it to be. I had a friend that was on color guard and she spun rifles and swords and such. Damn scary to meet her in a dark alley. She could probably decapitate someone with her mad skills.

Here's a video of UCI who has a fantasmic team.

It's kind of hard to do it justice in that fuzzy video, but I assure you seeing about 40 people all doing these amazing flips and spins in sequence is really incredible.

Thanks for the MCP site. I'd avoided it because it says 'fire' in the title but it's not as scary as it sounds!
