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:Well, this is going to sound like the lamest excuse ever...

But

I was going to come today (especially to Mr Mech) but I have no toys.
At all.

Not a single CJ ball, no poi, no staffs and no rope dart.

I have no idea what to do with myself - I packed them all into a Landy after the Glade and won't be seeing them again until Thursday - which is a little odd. Haven't been toyless for about 3 years frown

If only I was anywhere near good enough to do that - I'd be more than happy, but I think it would be a case of the "lame leading the lame"

although thinking about it, tell me you've never seen a complete newbie teaching another one a 3bt weave... wink

and, at the risk of not giving any constructive criticism whatsoever - i loved your video.

inspirational throughout, beautiful in parts (the back glide/hand walk above your head combo thing especially) and it had something special i'd personally like to see more of in videos - matching t-shirt and tunes biggrin

But probably won't as I don't really like Bush, but I thought as I'd invaded their stage, I should buy a t-shirt.

I was drunk

OK, I'll see what I can do - I don't really want to come up on my own - p'raps MIss Paraffin Fairy would like to come up?

and if you're trying to hurt me, may i recommend halibut over trout - they tend to be firmer and survive use as a flail for far longer.

Posted:Hello people!

I be coming to spitz! (Hopefully - if I can blag a lift back from the EJC in time)

Woooo! Hopefully on the 3rd of August! Yay! I can meet london people! Erm, so apart from that... I don't have much to say... But is it best to get a train to liverpool street or a tube to moorgate (or another closer tube station) it's quite hard to tell from streetmap.co.uk and I don't want to fanny around with surface trains if I don't have to, I prefer to be like the quiet mole that pops out of the tunnel station.

And obviously, everybody has to be there, even if I'm not that good at anything, apart from AI.

I planned to leave London early on Weds just so I could hit up Spitz... and hang a bit with the Londonium Krew.

Oh wait... it's Meg? Um... I think they moved it to somewhere very far away that day [I'm kidding] yes, meg, it's very far away [no it's not] you should take a bus as far away from spitz as you can [but everyone else should meet there] and if you don't see anyone very far away it's because they're hiding [actually, they're all at spitz] Keep looking. tongue


Well, shall we go?
