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)

if so how're you getting down?


We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

Posted:Oooooooooo so you are a fan of Mr Brynner are you? I saw him live in London at some theater or other in the King and I when I was at school. I think it was the Theater Royal...... but I could be wrong. We were so far back up in the Gods that we couldn't see Buddha head because the top of the stage obscured him ubblol Ahhhh wonderful school trips were so much fun biggrin

Anyhoo folks - this is supposed to be a thread about meets offtopic

Tobi say yes to Friday night at mine - woo hoo!

I'll be home all day, so whenever you guys rock up is fine with me - Gayle & Lynne won't get here til 8.30 ish anyway, but open house....

Don't know what time Tobi's working til so will you sort out getting here?
Trains are 24 past the hour from Piccadilly with an extra one at 4.50

Going back on Saturday they're 25 past the hour every hour.

Sorry - can't make this a general invite, my house isn't big enough, but those that don't come we'll hopefully see on Saturday in Platt Fields....

Posted:Will - station is northwich and thtere's a few coming in from Manc:
Tobi, Jenna, Millhouse, Havokist and GazzaBee - Gary may well drive so if you can meet up and do that it's a lot quicker - suggest you all let him know what time you can leave manc and see if it ties in with him etc

Devilstar's comingin from Colne I think

Pete's coming from Ellesmere Port and Cantus, Ro, Gayle and Skully will already be here biggrin

And everyone else - newbies and oldies - we'll see on Saturday for a mass burn biggrin bounce

Posted:Ok... Peeps Re: Elaine's on Friday...

I'm gonna be driving down on Friday from Manchester around 1930 ish

So far in the car I have got:
Jen, but I can fit another 3 in, as long as you don't all bring massive staff and unicycles wink
I thought I would reserve a place for Tobi (Have text him), as it is his birthday and everything, so counting up, that gives me 2 places free.

First come first serve!!

The smell is so bad that if I don't get it out by the end of the week I'm staying in Manchester and never going home again biggrin So Elaine, I'll be bringing my cat and belongings and moving in with you forever ubblol
