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)

Posted:Hey guys, wikid meet once again. Didn't think I'd get much spinning done as I'm actually full of lurgy, but I just can't help it being surounded by so much spinning, gotta join in! Lovley to see old faces again & meet new ones as ever. Didn't mean to scare y'all... I just see climbable stuff & have too! If anyone got a pik of my upside down poi, I'd love to show it to my trapeeze teacher. I've got a thing for taking circus skills into urban locations. Next meet on the 8th you say? Count me in. Happy Holidays! hug

Hey guys.. just had a thought..



I know this thread is getting PREEEEETTTTY long.. how about contacting the admin team ask them if they can prune it down or something.. get rid of old convo or just start a new thread mebbe?



Just a thought smile







are you kidding this thred is my little baby if we croped it or started a new one we would be sullying the momory of all the old scholl hoppers who cant make it to most of the meets dew to being away stuff and other stuff.



any way this is now the most popular thread in the whole (Events, Performances and Gatherings) sectin now we just beat the "im looking for some fellow dutch spinners" thred we are now number 1 woo hoo



sorry yes i know im sad.


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)

and i will make it to the next meet tongue

loki.c1687, sorry but I ain't alowed to give blood.

the meal was a nice touch, nice to have a chatt especially since I could hardly see anyone's faces once we were at the gassworks.

Brit_Joe, don't worry. You'll get used to me hanging around (sorry, couldn't resist) I'm actually very aware of my limitations.
