Posted:----------- Spinning@... Update -----------

Dear all



we have moved to a new location.... se here for the new treead

http://www.homeofpoi.com/ubbthreads/show.../o/fpart/1/vc/1





see you at the rag factory..





this is why we have moved...





We had discussions in the pub on Tuesday regarding the use of the market for spinning@spitz and thanks to friends we have a much clearer idea of whats going on:



Unfortunately we are not allowed back into the market for our workshops. It seems that while we have been out the market for the work, there has been a change of management. The new management appears to want to increase the value of the market area (gentrification is the term being used). This has led to many of the existing tenants not being invited to re enter the market, our selves included.



The stgeorges residents association would have had no idea we would not be allowed back in, so although annoying its not their fault. We still have contacts in the market and we dont want to cut out any future possibility of re-entering the market at a later date by kicking up a fuss, especially when there is no chance at all of us using the space in the current climate.



We need to do 2 things 1. Find a temporary place to play ASAP (see top) and 2. Find a permanent new home to help us move forward we need your help. Please think of the people around you, be it your parents, friends, colleagues etc and see if there is anyone who may be able to finds us a new home put the feelers out there.



If you find somewhere that fits our criteria (see below) then please get a contact name, a number or email and if appropriate, have a brief chat with them as a recommendation or personal contact makes a huge difference. If they are interested, forward their details to me and I will then chase it up.



We require an indoor or covered outdoor area with adequate lighting able to house up to 100 people on a Tuesday evening within 10mins from a tube and centrally located. We also require power to run a portable stereo.



On another note we have decided to have a Xmas party to raise some funds to help us secure a new spinning@..... s venue. The confirmed date is Thursday 20th December in a Brixton from about 7.30 pm to 1 am. More details to follow.



Hopefully we will get sorted very soon and in the meantime we will meet at the poet next week and maybe look at ice skating, bowling or something else there after.



Huge hugs



Kev and the guys at spinning@.... s

Posted:Could someone who goes to Spitz fairly regularly do me a favour?

Firstly, I'm curious to know if Simian still goes, since I havn't heard from him for ages, since he lost internet access.

Secondly, I have a load of hugs here that need handing out, can someone nominate themselves as Random Hug Distributer on my behalf?


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

I'll wear big fairy wings so you know who i am!

Posted:Hey all,
Just like to say that I just went to my first ever poi event last night and I think it was brilliant. Very impressive variaty of things going on. (poi, juggling, diablo, devil sticks, staff) Twas all good. And I managed to learn a few moves (and reduce the amount of times I kept hitting myself in the head :-P) I was the bloke in the green London to Brighton 2004 t-shirt and the green sock poi (freshly from my old PE kit).
Just like that say thanks to all for making my first night welcoming. I will be returning.

Posted:Appearing at the next spitz, for one night only:

NYC!

ubblove ubblove ubblove

Even more grumpy, jet-lagged, smelly, and irritable than usual!

See! The horror of someone who has only slept for 4 hours in the last 48.
Hear! The tales of how he trudged there and is far too tired to spin.
Smell! The rank odor of someone who's been on a plane and hasn't showered.
Feel! The confusion of the lost American as he stumbles around looking for the "subway".
Taste! Um... no actually you probably don't want to do that.

Anyway, I'm damn excited. Be gentle with me though, it will be a rough 48 hours.

biggrin

Posted:Ladies and Gentlemen!

May I have your attention please!



On Tuesday 29th June, in the year of our Lord 2004, Spitalfields Transatlantic Spinning Society presents to you, fresh from the US of A! The man! The myth! The one and only! NYC!!!!



In town for one day only I heartily suggest that you make extreme efforts to met this unnatural wonder: a sarcastic American!

To make sure you do indeed make extreme efforts to attend we have arranged a tube strike so that you can prove your love for the man and myth by coming along regardless!



See you there!
