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)

My flatmate met a poister at baluga bar in liverpool for the night of a thousand bill cosbys at the weekend, and he told her to send me to this thread.
She didn't get your name but said you were very friendly.

I've been doing poi for a few years on and off now but never done it as a social thing - are you guys meeting in Platts fields anytime soon? I think it's time I came out of my poi shell wavehello

Posted:hi all I'm back!!

Wellfor a bit at least (iv been having a Hop break) (not much spinning done either)

The last meet was cool thanks to all for waiting for me and Jem till you moved made me feel all special and stuff.

Thanks


Erm now hear comes the apologies bit Jen I cant make it to the Liverpool meet I know this was going to be our joint birthday thing but I cant go now (other commitments )

I'm totally bummed I am going to miss all the meets I had planed to go to.

So I have a small request to ya all.
I would like to celebrate my 27 (getting old now) birthday with you guys on the meet on the 14th especially since Skully and Gail are coming up to stay and I have pestered will to get his arse over this way as well.

Unfortunately I am working over the Friday and all weekend. I am working the early shift on Fri. so I can come by after that also as luck would have it I am working the late shift on sat so if Lovely Mr Mill would put me up for Friday night then I can stay late and go to work from mills house.

Hope this works ok with ya all

Mill I will love you forever

And peat any chance of some birthday brownies

Ps to all who dont know peat makes the words best brownies

Hanky - are you coming to Liverpool?

Tobi - if I'm reading your post right, you want the meet on Friday 14th October so you can go to wokr on Saturday?

Gayle & Skully won't be up to Northwich til 8 ish so it's too late for coming up to Manc then. We were planning on stying local in Northwich on Friday then coming up for a meet on Saturday at 4 and take the rest of the night from there....

Posted:We've only ever been able to come on the friday late. Please remember that me and Lynne are trying to co-ordinate journeys from over 2 hours away from each other. We both have no leave left and i have to allow time for Lynne to get out of Wales. The best we can do is leave Bristol at 3pm, which is a struggle in itself. Lynne cannot leave any earlier and it already takes her about 1 1/2 - 2 hours to get out of Wales. So, we're gonna be hitting rush hour Birmingham and we're hoping to get up to you guys in around 4 hours after I have already done a full days work.

We've tried our best and really want to come and don't want to be dissappointed. I know we are all trying to please everyone which is a nightmare.

Tobi, How do you plan on celebrating your birthday? If it's with a few drinks, a takeaway and a couple of biftas i'm sure we can find a location that suits all???

Then, we get to see the people that can only make friday and the people that can only make saturday and hopefully some overlap of the two.

hmmm, maybe a new job in international negotiations beckons ubblol

I'm just joking. Like Gayle said we are short on leave and can't come any earlier. Sorry if that clashes with any plans any one has but thats just the way it is.

See as many as possible of you very soon hug

Posted:isnt it just, and its even in here a litle bit lol.

If no one knows where to go you can find someone to help you im sure, ask a local where the pier thingie is, or find a tourist information place, or text/call someone and ask for directions.

Never fear, things work out in the end they usually do.
