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:Hi All

How's everybody doing? I haven't posted on HOP for about 1 year (Got addicted at work so had to stop, then went abroad and currently no internet at home!). Good to see it's all still here!

Anyways, I've started working near Old Street so I guess I'm pretty close to Spitz now and may turn up next week... biggrin

Haven't been practicing this year though, so my arms will get tired very quickly but I miss spinning.

and we missed Spitz'es 4th birthday, it was two months ago...

generally i'd remember and tell ewan and we'd have a party and that.

but i forgot redface doh!

i'll see if i can convince Kev to have a late birthday spitz party. It may be hard convincing him though.

Kev hates parties.

and fun.

and children.

and especially kittens. Oooooooh he HATES kittens.

Also I may possibly need a place to crash on the sunday night if anybody has any spare floor/sofa space that would be great!

Posted:hi all..
is there anyone here who would be able to give me a hand at the thames festival over the weekend of 15-16 Sept? I need someone to be there to help with re-fueling for my fire act, or to stand there with a fire blanket (more for show) at the night carnival of the festival - should be a heap of fun - only need you for a couple of hours, then maybe we can have a bit of a spin? PM me for details.. please pretty please with ice cream on top!!!!!

Posted:I might be there next Tuesday, I work near Spitz but I haven't had the energy or guts to come meet you all yet... every time I think 'yes, this week is the week I shall go to Spitz' I forget to take my poi to work!

I haven't picked up my poi for nearly a year as well, but I'm starting to really miss spinning! Need some spank to get my ass in gear!
