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

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

I'm a woman. We don't say what we want, but we reserve the right to be pissed off if we don't get it. That's what makes us so fascinating and not just a LITTLE bit scary.

That's only the second time, and the other one I didn't see until this morning. You bloody well should have done from the snowflake one, which, by the way, I knew from:

Quote:
While it is true that no two snowflakes are alike - so far - they do come in six basic categories: needles, columns, plates, needles capped by plates, stars and dendrites. Railtrack classifies all six as the wrong kind of snow.
-- Tim Dowling in the Guardian



Which is in my quotes file...

One of the other people said that Tony Curtis was Hungarian. I don't even know who he is....

Posted:Just thought i'd send out some enormously massive hug's to Smallboy and SpacemonkE



(even though the chances are that neither of them will ever read this rolleyes )



Yesterday was one of the most lovely and fluffy spinny meets i've had the pleasure to enjoy.



A huge beerchug to Mister Smallboy for his quite remarkably generous "Free Beer" brainwave.



and an extra helping of hugs for Ewan and his festive "Free Workshop" manifesto hug hug hug



They created a proper party-like atmosphere, which made me want to put both my thumbs up and shout

"SOOOO-PER EKK-SELL-ENNNNT"

like an overexcited japanese schoolgirl ubbrollsmile



truly the Spits Wokshop is the bestest Wokshop in London, and probably the world.



i shall redouble my efforts to convert the Unspitzed, and spread the word of Poi, Love and Drunkeness



a very happy new year to you all smile
