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

Its always important that people come to Spitz otherwise i'd be there on my own. Which wouldn't be much fun at all really.

See you there

Posted:Wandering along next to the markets last night, peering through windows thinking 'I can see them spinning....now just how to get get to them'
Well I managed to find a door and get in, and really enjoyed last night.

Thanx to bambam and everyone else who's name and nickname went with a complete overload or names and faces and everything else. Was a great night, and I expect I'll be wandering along each tuesday from now on.

but a 'workshop'? whats one of those when its at home? whatever, it doesn't sound like something that would fit in with our crowd too well

was good to meet ya shads - sure we'll bump into each other again soon and i'll do more than just say hello, hug you and run off

Posted:Hello everyone
I hope you had a fab time last night. I was feeling a bit shy so didnt come but small boy thank you for the words of encouragement you made me feel much better!! I was practicing my poi in Picadilly circus last night waiting for the bus and all of a sudden this guy appeared who had been practicing his staff on the other side of the road and thought he would come over for the chat. Guess that poi must attract positive people so I will try and come next week and hopefully somebody might be able to teach me a bit cos im pretty crap at the moment.....
Look forward to meeting you all
and an


some people take a walk in the rain and others just get wet

Smiling is infectious. Please pass this on.

There are lots of very nice people who can be very much put off or turned away by it. Or even turned off or put away. Or even...

Posted:Oi, UCOF and SB, I know you're joking but it's a good point that I've got to jump on. Sorry to be big bad organiser but a little reminder to eveyrone...

We only get to spin at Spitz until we get kicked out or it becomes too expensive. On the expense side, we didn't exactly survive winter but I think it was worth it for the happy hard core (nutters in T-shirts at 5C ) and to be open in the summer. And though the rent's gone up the summer is almost so here we should be ok but...

...we will get kicked out if we don't respect that a lot of people often don't see things the way that we do, and unfortunately they're the ones that can ask us to go elsewhere. Hence, please be tidy, ask for plastic glasses if you're drinking, and please take a wander outside the market if you fancy improving the air's ambient aroma

Right, nuff of that, and cheers for your ears.

Part from that I hate you all, please don't speak to me if you see me, and if anybody hugs me I'll break their arms.

(Sodding sunshine )

Love,

SpacemonkE

*snap* *snap*

AAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGHHHHHH!

oh the pain... the terrible pain...

i'll have to learn to spin with my feet like UCOF, and then someone will make a film of my incredible struggle against adversity. I'm not giving them the rights unless they get Tom Cruise to play me though. Or possibly Craig David or Ricky Martin.

Posted:Tuesday was lots of fun! The we love devilstick club was formed, there were a group of people tossing clubs to one another, there was a real festival athmosphere in the air!! Oh and warmth!!

Well done to all you nutters who kept Spitz going during the winter and lightweights and pansies like me look forward to lots of sessions with the arrival of warmer weather

Posted:Jon - try not to be heartbroken if Smallboy does not shower you with kisses tonight.

I'm sorry to break it to you, but my sources tell me he has a girlfriend

I won't be joining you down the back alleys tonight or falling into that gutter off BamBam's

Now that I am reaching those heady-scales of my late twenties My body is shot! Put my back out carrying TV out to the garden for the Ireland v England match Sunday and still feeling all twingy and shuffling like a 90 year old.

Have a nice time and see y'all next week

Quick points, although i do agree we should find somewhere else to smoke.

1) You're not encouraging ppl to disappear if you're smoking with us ya big tart you.
2) Peeps - Don't just wander outside and hang around in groups. There's 3 times the amount of cameras round the edge of the market and down surrounding alleys than there is inside. At least make it look like you're attempting to disassociate yourselves.
3) Weathers warmer, got no excuses any more.

See y'all there in half hour

Posted:I'm coming along tonight! I've missed it these last couple of weeks...

Am also bringing along a new person (well, she's meeting me there and will almost certainly be there before me), so if you see a talk dark haired girl who answers to the name of Susie looking lost about 7ish, say hi and someone lend her some poi!

See you later peeps.

I read all this and just wanna cry...

I am coming next week... forget the distance, forget being shy!! I'm just gonna show up and join in. If there's any other relatively shy persons wanting to come with me (power in numbers) let me know!!

Until then, happy spinning sans DTKB.
