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 https://delizium.fotopic.net/c291964.html

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)

Millhouse, needn't worry about Siy, he proved actually how gullible i am... The fire breathing pic ain't him. You'd think seeing him pretty much every day i'd be able to tell but it does look like him!

Hi there locals...

I'm staying in Ormskirk for a bit and was hoping for a chance to meet up with some peeps for a spin this fine-looking long weekend. It doesn't look like you've got anything planned (but correct me if I'm wrong) but I'd love to get together with even one or two other?

I know it seems a bit sad and lonely to have no other plans but I've just come back from travelling, am crashing at a non-spinner friend's house while I try to find a job, and am desperately missing my lovely Irish fire friends.

Anyone?? Please?? smile

I am glad this is an international game - I learnt in school that the world spins, and now I know it's true.

Is no-one up for something this w/e? The 15th is forever away.

And I thought Man was the best city in the uk. wink

No... it must have been my imagination. It would be impossible to hear such a thing all the way from London...

Berks, huh? could be worse... could be london...

Just kidding really. I was hoping to flatter the locals into coming out with me, but it's clearly not working.

I shall be wandering around Coniston tomorrow morning, which beats lessons by a long shot.

And I wish I were a post whore, but I'm too sleepy!
