So, when I was in Merritt about a week ago, I was talking to a fellow from Calgary who said he had heard that there was often people practicing poi and fire spinning in Riley Park, evenings and weekends.
He hadn't been there yet, due to weather difficulties, but he'd heard about this from other people.
I thought I'd swing by and take a look. I didn't find any poi, so I'll have to try again for that. I did find a couple of cricket fields. Unbelievable. People in Canada play cricket? I had no idea. I had never seen cricket until I was in Nepal in 2005.
