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)

Other highlights were Flashpoint falling over a wall and several people falling off the oh-so-tempting rock...

Posted:*notes, inrelation to above post, Cantus' new sig...

Yes the wall hurt. I have done worse though. I have a history of bruised and cut shins and walls. censored

Wild child: Ta for the beer...

Will: CJ in club to pull girls... Did it work eventually? Many comments of "nice balls" And I still havent worked out who that dancer was...

Sniper: I only have one question... Why did he kick you so hard in the balls all the rest of us guys there felt it?

Liquid_Bubblygum: Sorry about your glowstix, I had no idea that girl was so pissed. My apologies if theyre broke...

Roman: I never taught you some tap dancing! Thats on the cards for next time...

Millhouse: do you know EVERYONE in manchester?

And on a final note... I never fell off the rock, but its power was temporarily transferred to the wall. Damn brickwork.

Posted:Hey all, i'm new to this site and i had no idea that so much spinning fun was happening all over. I posted a thread in the introductions bit before so you can all see who i am if you want. I was looking for people more in Liverpool but it appears there is next to no one there. so i was wondering if i'd be able to come over to Manc land next time your getting together and hopefully learn off you guys, as i've only really just started getting into poi.

Whatever happened to my green and pleasant land?

Posted:yeah, feel free to come down to any meets. we've just had a big ish meet, so there will probably be within roughly a month.

tobi, you were saying at the last meet that we should start having more regular meets? as in a certain weekend each month? would the third weekend in each month do? and possibly either a friday or saturday? cause some people have things like work on the sunday. tell me what you think ubbrollsmile
