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:That scared em' off

Spittalfields is every tuesday from 7:00, and theres much staffage along with the poiism, and even a little bit of jugglist action occasionally.

Posted:cheers for that... hopefully i'll be able to go to the spitalfields thing next week.

i think the time and dates of these post seem to be in the future because this is a new zealand website so it operates on their time, it's weird that they are already in tomorrow over there... at least i'm guessing that's why

Posted:Yep, that's exactly why.

There's a little message in the bottom left corner that says 'All times are Home of Poi time (HOPT)'
It used to say what the time was in relation to Greenwich mean time, but I seem to remember that that confused some people too, so Malcolm decided to make it arbitrary HOP time to confuse everybody


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

Posted:Hey there!

Just a quick update...

1. Spitalfields is definitely still on with no planned end date as yet. It all depends on how much we can stand the cold really.

2. We are trying to get a bit of heating organised right now, but in case we don't, please layer yourself properly so you can stand and chat OR play (obviously poi-ing like crazy keeps you toasty though!)

Cheers,
X

A kiss blown is a kiss wasted, the only kind of kiss is a kiss tasted.

Posted:Well, I won't be at Spitalfields this week - have a Christmas Drinks gathering which I must attend...

So THANK YOU to Carrey and Euan for setting it all up (and hope you both enjoyed Planet Angel on Friday! ) and a big huge MERRY CHRISTMAS to all the Poi and Staff People who have given me something fun to do on a Tuesday night for the last few months!


See you in the New Year.... xx

Posted:Happy Christmas Ali-bird! See you in the New Year.

Hope to make it along tomorrow, I will see how knackered I am at the end of the day. Some fortifying pints before would be nice. Anybody care to join me for a few scoops the pub before Spitz and if so what pub nearby?

Posted:i finish work at 5:30 and am usually in the pub within about 10 mins if you fancy a pint beforehand.

i usually go to the pub nearby with the pool tables upstairs (can't remember the name but its between spitalfields and the station) or just into spitz bar.

however, i think the meet starts at 6:00 now (since last week) so you only really have time for a quick pint at best. how was the cafe on saturday night?

edit: just noticed your post about the cafe sitch in your 'come to the cafe' thread . thats a bummer about the change in attitude but i'm sure as time goes on, it'll gradually slip back into its old function...

Posted:6pm. Thats early indeed. In that case, I will just bring my own with me and see you down there as it could be just before 6 when I get to Liv. St.

Shame indeed about the cafe, I think you could be right about the 'old' habits though. I think they just need to wait til the heat cools down and I guess writing about it online does not help either. I know freeparty sites are monitered so you never know who is watching what you say online. Scary

See u tom. so folks
