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

Yes, yes there is.

Look out for this man, his name's Kev and he'll probably be sorting out the workshops for the evening, so he'll be able to help you find someone to teach you some stuff.



Edit.. changed picture, now that I've found a more suitable one smile

I thought that seeing as i have taken over spitz.. i should visit the link some time..

Its still on every tuesday from 7.30 (oficially) till pub at 10. the donation is upto 3.00 and loads of people who come regularly want to teach more, what we need are some more people to brave the cool weather and come play...

so tell everyone you know, bring them down and lets have some fun this spring...

If you have an event comming up that you think jugglie people may be interested in, bring me some flyers and we will add them to the growing flyer display..


A seperate note... i am considering hiring a mini bus (upto 16 people) to drive down to the bjc... if your interested, contact me at spitz.... or email me... kevin@devkev.com.. (put spitz in the subject)

have fun....

Is there any chance someone might bring along a spare staff for me? I'm already taking biochemical samples on the plane, I think if I brought a fire stick they might just be a bit too scared of the combination ubblol

If not, no worries, I'll be happy enough with my socks!
