What's happening this winter in the S.E.? No SIBL? HSBC? Are we all doing the BlocFest events instead?

I've been thinking this too. SIBL is supposed to happen, it will just be a bit later than normal. I'm not too sure about HSBC though..

Feeling slightly frustrated by it all though!

In reply to Hazelnuts: SIBL is dead, thanks to the mess that was last season.

BlocFest is the new sibl...http://www.blocfest.co.uk/

DJ's are booked, problems are being dreamed about and the dancing girls are warming up (joke), its only Mike Langley on the pole. Prizes at the first event are from Wild Country who are also going to be on hand to answer all your gear questions and bring some boots along for you to try out. We cant wait for the first event...can you?

I was there at most of them last season and didn't think it was that bad? What went so wrong that it won't be continuing??

In reply to Hazelnuts: I heard the problems were with the person who was running it and the actual walls. Apparently the walls had to supply and do a lot of extra work which they didn't expect to have to do.

In reply to wushu: Which is why a solid team is getting behind this. The sibl last year was poorly run poorly executed and was a shameful imitation of the previous sibl's and the hard work behind them. It needed a change...enter the Blocfest!
