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

No chance of me moving back to Chesham Bois Jon, but I have just moved to Islington, which is why I can actually go to Spitz now.

Posted:so i came to spitz last week and it was really fun - lack of pubs was a bit of a bother - and i had been planning to make it a regular thing (as regular as my stressful, busy, over-demanding student lifestyle will allow).

Unfortunately, family pressures mean i won't be able to make it this week, but i would appreciate it if those of you who are there could imagine that i am too, and imagine that i said hello and was good company and not as awkward as last week.
bounce2
have lots of fun, and i hope the weather stays dry this time,

Ben beerchug

ps. If you'd like to imagine that i bought you a pint... wink


please help keep the world clean - others may wish to use it

Posted:It's not looking likely that I'll be there tomorrow, as I can barely do anything without my back playing up.

Since I'm not really too fond of pain, I'm going to give the train and tube a miss and sit at home hoping my back gets better soon.

Posted:Thanks everyone for another great series of visits to Spitz! It was loads of fun... though I'm convinced now that I'll never get to see Cole spin poi. I kept trying to get there earlier, but somehow never made it before 8:30. Anyhow, cheers everyone, thanks again for a great time!
