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:Or Brixton - Wednesday
Higbury - Thursday
Leytonstone (Fire night) - Friday

During the summer there's Clapham Common on Sunday
And Beach parties once a month

For the hardcore dedicated fans there's also people that meet up randomly and spin together due to 4/5 days a week not being enough of a fix.

Posted:I can't make it next tuesday - I've discovered that the cinema is showing Donnie Darko
It's only being screened once, and since it's such a fantastic film, I'm going to have to go see it.

At some time during the future, they're doing the same with Alien and the original version of the Ring, both of which I'm going to have to miss Spitz for.


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

Yay Simian, you the man and I'm very greatful for your efforts.

Nice one all who turned up last night. Stupidly cold but it was a freak weather pattern, and Spring is almost here

Have a great week,

SmilE

Posted:Cole we met before but I may not have my glasses on! Were you there early playing with your 2 coloured (blue & green /yellow) poi? If so I know who you are? I was sitting in a corner stuffing myself with KFC and coffee when I arrived.

BTW - Still have to have our chat re: Mulholland Drive, want to know more about significance of cowboy. Let me rent it out again and then we can sit down and figure Mr. Lynch and all his nuances out!
