Posted:juggle weavesmiley Manchester Spinners Meet up and stuff weavesmiley juggle



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)

IV DONE IT!!!! I'VE FINAL CRACKED IT!!!



Long time ago i said i was going on a quest to make a good coloured flame thats not only Safe for all..But easy to use



After ALOT of time blood & sweat and alot of money I Cracked it



I HAVE MADE COLOUR FLAMES!!!!



Am now in the advansed testing stage of the colour flames and have picked out the best and strong'es colours and they are as follows



SKY BLUE,

EMERALD GREEN for all u irish peeps..

ORANGE

PINK for all you ladies

RED

and my Fav PURPLE!!!



Over th enexted week ill be commin up with a Fixer to trap the colour in the fule wich will not only make it Safe to use ( with out Toxic Mask ) but 100% legal in the uk to Use and Ship around the uk...



I will be selling the Oils thourgh a Friends Online Company Oni Khan uk Tld, ( ebay shop ) Shippin will be By courer



Price yet to be fixed but is looking to be around 4.99 - 10.99 but as i said prices are yet to be confermed..



All colours cant be mixed with other fules or blend'ed together ie 2 dif colours to make another colour as the chemicals use will not combine, and the fixing agent used will also provent it from blending but u can how ever add the smae colours together to make a larger amount ie mixed 2 bottels of the same colour...



( ALSO THE COLOUR FLAME CAN NOT!"!!! BE USED FOR FIRE BREATHING!!!!! )



I hope i cant find the time to join u all on sunday as i have yet to meet u all in person and would love to meet u all...



So if u red this Eliane could u give me a call or ill call u some time friday/saturday to c if i could pos get a ride with u? so long as ur back later that night as i have to be up for work monday....



Well I hope u all take interest in the coloured flames and wanna try them out tongue.. ill let u all know when am rdy to produce for sale... I wont be making any profit from sellin the oils as am not in it for the money i just want everyone to have as much fun with them as i do..



All oils are sold At cost prise that it cost my self to make them....



Thanx for redin my post and C u soon...

Hey Project, you should bump up the prices a few quid, I dont think anyone would complain at having to pay for colourd safe flames. Go on make a tiny bit of money here and there even if its just pocket money.

Ive made up my mind I am coming even if I have to scounge train fair off my parents, I'll put my stupid pride away for a while.

Does that mean sitting on the bed in front of the computer stuffinf yourself with easter eggs?

Here's a thought - pierce a small hole in the top of the easter egg of your choice and pipe some nutella into it... How does that sound?
