Alright, a number of us have met in Toronto a couple of times now in Christie Pits park, and are going to be meeting on a semi-regular basis. Eariler tonight we thought it would be a good idea to start a thread for GTA spinners, where we can post meeting locations and times, and others can post to say if they'll be available, etc.

and...well, this is it. Enjoy, all.

PS. When did we decide we'd be getting together next? I wasn't paying too much attention I'm afraid...

hey all, had a blast tuesday, great that paddy and petey finally made trinity.
THIS WEEKEND:
SAT: Reverb - Davey said he'd be there for spinning at 10pm. I'm going to try and go. And will be going directly there. I know Davey, I and Vitaly are not going to Christie.
SUN: Cherry Beach party. go to parking lot and walk right. usually runs 2pm to 10pm. I'll probably go for 5pm. Hope to see stacey and vitaly there. Bethany, great news about promise. I thought you'd be missing this sunday, 'cause of going up north. Are you guys coming back in time. Hope so.

how long have you guys been spinning at cherry beach for??

i stopped going there about a year and a bit ago...few months after that started being used as a venue, and before the thugs were showing up for the jungle parties...

wont be able to make it monday though....but tuesday sounds good.....

hopefully i can find someone who will be inclined enough to spin at a party...either inside the venue, or outside during the lineup..

thanks

Hi everyone!

Would someone be able to tell me how to get to Cherry Beach by the TTC?

I've been spinning for almost a year now and haven't had the chance to see anyone else do it, save for the occassional short video of someone at a rave. So, I've been dying to meet others and hope to do so before the summer's out.

Gotta go now. My connection is flaky, but I'll try to check back soon. Bye!

Kevin- The Promise guys (Dave and Irving) have been throwing free sunday afternoon ( 2 to 11pm ) parties there all summer.
No thugs, just a nice chill beach vibe!!!

Unfortunately I don't think there is ttc along lakeshore and down Cherry st. so I sugest a bike OR take a cab from Front st. OR bring a friend with a car.

Hey, just finally checked out your board here.

It looks like you are all pretty involved in poi and spinning and I admire that. I'm glad that we go past sunset on the beach on the weekend so you can have time and space to spin for others. It makes it all so much better. We will be doing it again next week.

By the way, can you believe that stilt-walking 12 foot red masked demon/bird that came along and started dancing to breaks? I have no idea......

Hey, can anyone put me in contact with Lindsay? She was awesome on Sunday. My email is mdave@sympatico.ca

thanks.
yes yes yall.

People! I left my favorite sweatshirt at Trinity last night!! Did anyone by chance pick it up??

It's a black FDCO hoodie with stripes on the sleeves. It's tremedously comfy and if I've lost it like the bonehead I am I don't think I'll be able to forgive myself.

I know that it was sitting right by the tree. I thought I'd packed it in my bag and I only realized what I'd done once I got home.

If you found it, *please please please* let me know. And if someone on firewire could maybe send out a quick message asking if anyone on firewire fround it, I'd *reallllly* appreciate it...

Thank you so much everyone.

NO FEAR PADDY, MISS ASTROFUNKLOVE IS HERE!!

Yes, I found a lone sweater by the tree and it is now in the safe sweet hands of the lovely Miss Kiki!
I can tell her to bring it sunday or next tuesday or if you want it you could drop by her place. It's Up to YOU*!
BTW were those your sun glasses too?

*call me let me know tonight and/or for directions.

Well this is my last post for a little while as I leave for out west Friday. I wish I could bring you guys all along I don't think spinning will have quite the same magicalness without all of you guys there twirling along with me!! Have fun see you Aug.24

BETHANY!! THANK YOU THANK THANK YOU!! YOU ROCK SO MUCH!!



I was so worried...you don't know how relieved I am! I spend about 20hours/day wearing that thing in the winter!

Yep, they're my sunglasses too...I was just so worried about losing my cozy hoodie I didn't even think to mention them.

I'll pick them up from Kiki next tuesday...it's well out of your way to drop them off and I couldn't ask you to do that after you've already been picking up after my forgetful-ass self.

Thank you again Bethany (and Kiki), you absolutely rock. Have a lovely time out west!

<--- me all happy in hoodie
<--- me all cool in sunglasses

PS. just one more thank you. THANK YOU!!

Misread last post...thought you meant you were going to drop by *my* place, which would just be silly. If I am in the city I'll drop by and pick them up (as you were actually suggesting). I'll call you I have time, otherwise tuesday is cool! Thanks again!

Kevin, I'll be spinning fire upstairs in the Resistor room, come check us out, as we have a pre-party poi session from 10-11:30pm at every party

Okay, is it just me or is Lindsey the most popular girl in school nowadays! Well Miss Popular, your gentlemen callers await

Bender T. Offender, this scene has just exploded since I started spreading the word far and wide. Its my hope that we'll be able to afford a venue (studio/club) to play in during the winter. Canadian winters are not friendly. Nice performance on the COL3 vid BTW!!!

Ren, Thanks girl! You rock!
