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:Elaine, I know where Smithfields is... It is just a bit out of town towards East, so if it's for an interview, I would suggest driving... It's pretty well signposted...

New Smithfield Market, Whitworth Street East, Openshaw, Manchester M11 2WJ.

Just head outta town on Ashton Old Road, and you should pick up signs!

Posted:To perform as Tobi said you have to be very very good. Above all not jsut confident in your moves but be a good performer, howt o get the best crowd reaction and to be confident to do things in front of possibly hundreds of people. #

I do performances as often as I cn for the pubs and clubs in Hull, with all of them I have had to show my insurance details

So did I - it's not cheating, it works!!! Actually I did it in July last year but when i was made redundant I started again - it was a deliberate thing doh! Anyhoo, got a cd of the session so did it myself at home and this time around I'm sticking to it.

Well done you too! clap

Posted:Congrats to both Elaine and LTC (for quitting smoking) and Mike (growing up!?)

Lee, i thought you where one of the guys that spins outside java on princess street (near brannigans) at the weekends, or is that Mike and someone else?
I think you get public liability licences from the town hall, can check on that one tomorrow. as for insurance you would have to speak to one of the guys that already spin publicly

hug for both Lemminglady and Catt, see you both at the next meet
