----------- Spinning@... Update -----------

Dear all



we have moved to a new location.... se here for the new treead

[Old link]





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

Hey all - have only recently heard about the workshops after stopping by at Oddballs in Camden to look at fire poi and get some ideas on a good beginner set to light up with.

Do they run every Tuesday or only some? i guess just turning up is ok?

I'll be at Spitz some time soon (not tonight tho - bit of a family crisis going on), maybe next week, cos I keep thinking about how much I want to pick up my poi again but then I think about how much the weather sucks most of the time. I haven't done any poi for nearly a year redface

Hope I haven't forgotten everything, I'll be gutted if I have to start from scratch! Oh well, it's not like I've ever made massive progress... I was just really happy when I learnt to do fountains! Simple things please simple minds...

just a little note to the man with the plan - Chris - who has headed off to warmer climes. Our loss maybe but we can be sure that there will be many beach parties which will be all the better for his mad skills.
Keep in touch and have a good one
