Posted:juggle weavesmiley Manchester Spinners Meet up and stuff weavesmiley juggle



Hi all If you are looking for people to spin poi with in the North west this is the place to be.



For any one new to this sight DONT READ THE WHOLE THREAD it has been going a long time and contains lots of old information and chat about previous meet ups and organisation stuff just go to the last few posts to find out the most up-to-date information on current events.



First a bit of info the Manchester spinners lot is no professional spinning troop or organised events it is just a group of people who get together to enjoy themselves. The first meet up was organised way beck in September 04 http://delizium.fotopic.net/c291964.html
br>
The crowd has changed a bit from back then but we have kept a few old timers we welcome all along to come and join us for a spin whether you be experienced or a complete beginner we are willing to teach and learn from you.



Their is no set time for the meet ups they are usually organised around when people can make it and how long they can stay.



I will try to update this first post as often as I can with the most up-to-date info on meet ups and club nights that allow spinning but if I'm being a bit lax just find the last few posts foe up-to-date info (like I said before werent you paying attention)



To date the standard meets have gone as meet up in Piccadilly gardens at 4pm (nice central point where every one can get to) Then move on down to the Gas Works/CastleField or Plat fields Park depending on the wether till everyone gets to cold/tired/burned then on to the pub

( anybody who doesnt know where this is it can be arranged for someone to come meet you at the train station or wherever you are coming from .) smile

{ ubblove We are a nice bunch like that ubblove}



Accommodation for a night can usually be arranged but you need to sort this well in advance no just turning up expecting somewhere to sleep eek





(more to be added and all to be spell checked soon)



pm me any info you would like to add



before i met those lot i thought they'd be a bunch of dreadlocked hippies that smoked, set things on fire ,and drank a lot of tea but then when i met them....oh wait (PyroWill)

PLEASE do me a HUGE favour, and stop abbreviating words... Your posts are so hard to read. smile



I had to sit and stare at your post for a wee while before I could work out what it was you were trying to say.

Pete - surely not uni on the tightrope eek ubblol

Seye - yeah bring your clubs - I'll bring mine and you can teach me (and I'll make you look MUCH better biggrin ). You OK with directions to Gasworks now? not usre if Steaks is a driver of not and frnakly i find non-drivers who know the area well are hopeless at directions so if you need clarification PM me ur mobi or something.

Hazey moving to Manc??! woohoo

Will - the NCP carpark will probably cost you about 7 - not sure where you parled last time but they can be pretty awkward round there.....

Gazza and Lee!!!! hopw you get to make it for a little while at least.

Syndiccells - which station will you come into? PM me if you want my mobi

Phew! I'll go now biggrin see you sunday hug

Posted:Elaine: i can drive, jsut cant afford a car since i wrote my last one off. i also know manchester city centre very well from both driving and cycling around it, so i am quite good at directions. (ask Schitz)

As Flashpoint said its free parking on the road on sunday (Witworth street is the road the Gasworks are on) the car park there is 4 for the afternoon or something silly like that.

Seye i just text'd you directions wink call me ifyou need any more help.

see you all sunday biggrin

p.s. my bro got his glowstaff in the mail today, cant wait till i see it properly.

Posted:Cheers for the directions dude - Might go up beforehand and scout out parking (its not going to be pretty on sunday - who the hell wanted to meet up at that end of the weekend!)
Cant wait to see the glowstaff. I've just sussed out a whole load of new contact tricks so I'll bring the other staffs down too. In fact I'll bring all the toys down. I have a very short attention span and have to keep swapping all the time. Might even be able to show you those devilstick fishtails.

Wild Child - We can drop and pick up our clubs together. I can only manage about 20 passes of a basic cascade on a good day. I'll get it eventually. I'm just in no rush to learn anything cool
