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:Oh well, looks like I'm not gonna be there, I'm being thrown out the house for having an 'inappropriate sense of humour'.. which I must do, 'cos I think it's hilarious..

Jolly nice to meet the people who were there last month, and maybe I'll get my act together and move back later in the year, hopefully into a house with better housemates.

Posted:I'd be more bothered if it wasn't so funny..

Apparently the conversation that offended him was when a new guy had moved in, and we were all having a 'get to know you' sorta chat and a few beers.

He said to the new guy 'Oh, I tried to look you up on the internet, couldn't find much about you'- the new guy looked suprised, and said 'What? You tried to look me up?' and I'd laughed and said, 'Ooh, sounds like someone has a stalker..'
shrug

Posted:I was actually asking about getting a lift down to Manchester at the weekend, not down to Southern Lights..

Not that I'd complain or anything, but I got no money right now smile
It's just that the trains stop ludicrously early on a sunday back to Lancaster, and I'm currently car-less, so unless I could get a lift, I cannae come.
