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

Details are on page one of this mega-thread and we're all a pretty friendly bunch, if a little odd at times. Just walk up to random people and say hello.
See you there in a while!

I buy all my stuff at Oddballs in Camden - www.oddballs.co.uk - they're really nice people, and carry a fairly good range of fire poi most of the time, as well as lots of other toys.

Posted:Right, I'll be coming tomorrow night as well biggrin That'll be a bit better for my dad methinks, if it's a market with little shops and stuff, he won't have to read the whole day tongue

We'll figure out how to get there no probs though (pretty sure/hope).

Till then!

Posted:The little shops will all be shut I'm afraid. However, there's 2 great London things you can do:

1) Go for a curry in Brick Lane - some of the best curries in the world.
2) Find a Jack the Ripper walk. Jack stalkd these streets not so long ago and ever since people have been showing tourists around. I see signs around the market for them so get there early to find out when they start. I think there's one that starts from Aldgate East station as well. Or probably best to do a google.

Everyone will be more awake on Tuesday, so ask people to teach you stuff. Me included.

Posted:About 7ish is a good time.

The best thing to remember is that if you see someone doing something you want to be able to do, or are having trouble with, just go ask them.
No-one's going to tell you to sod off, although they may well refer you to someone who can teach it better.

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