Hi all If you are looking for people to spin poi with in the North west this is the place to be.



For any one new to this sight DONT READ THE WHOLE THREAD it has been going a long time and contains lots of old information and chat about previous meet ups and organisation stuff just go to the last few posts to find out the most up-to-date information on current events.



First a bit of info the Manchester spinners lot is no professional spinning troop or organised events it is just a group of people who get together to enjoy themselves. The first meet up was organised way beck in September 04 http://delizium.fotopic.net/c291964.html
br>
The crowd has changed a bit from back then but we have kept a few old timers we welcome all along to come and join us for a spin whether you be experienced or a complete beginner we are willing to teach and learn from you.



Their is no set time for the meet ups they are usually organised around when people can make it and how long they can stay.



I will try to update this first post as often as I can with the most up-to-date info on meet ups and club nights that allow spinning but if I'm being a bit lax just find the last few posts foe up-to-date info (like I said before werent you paying attention)



To date the standard meets have gone as meet up in Piccadilly gardens at 4pm (nice central point where every one can get to) Then move on down to the Gas Works/CastleField or Plat fields Park depending on the wether till everyone gets to cold/tired/burned then on to the pub

( anybody who doesnt know where this is it can be arranged for someone to come meet you at the train station or wherever you are coming from .) smile

{ ubblove We are a nice bunch like that ubblove}



Accommodation for a night can usually be arranged but you need to sort this well in advance no just turning up expecting somewhere to sleep eek





(more to be added and all to be spell checked soon)



pm me any info you would like to add



before i met those lot i thought they'd be a bunch of dreadlocked hippies that smoked, set things on fire ,and drank a lot of tea but then when i met them....oh wait (PyroWill)

- meets are normally once a month-ish - but not on a regular week, they're normally on a sunday but the next one's on a Saturday so a missed friend can make it, people normally start turning up from about 3 ish but get there whenever they can, we normally stay til 9 or 10 ish.







And saying this can't really be described as "regular" and to watch this thread was a disservice, was it??

wink wink



Bl**dy hippies!! ubbrollsmile

There is a sign saying it'l be totally sealed off after July 30th. So Castlefield I'd suggest for the meet after this one.

Posted:I've changed* my next week plans for travel to driving instead of cycling to play, so if anyone needs stuff taking, or a lift in a squashed place (there's no room for your feet in the back of my car) then talk to me about it tomorrow and we'll see what we can sort out..

Should be leaving Manc Weds lunchtime and coming back at random-but-not-late o'clock on Sunday
