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 https://delizium.fotopic.net/c291964.html

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)

Neon is in Bristol. Steaks, Milhouse, Dan are in a bike race, Fractos is doing something else, Bubble isn't coming because she didn't know there is a meet. Sye and me are not sure if we should set off on a 20miles journey for a non-existing meet. tongue2 I can't get through to Flashpoint, Elaine or Terry.

So I guess this one is getting called off then?

Hey guys long time no speak. How is everyone? Who do we have still coming in here? Show of hands please.

Well with Lee Hughes (whatsthespeedofdark), god knows what his HoP profile is anymore, moving to Australia at the end of Feb I think we should have a night out in manchester with him. Apparently theres a spinning meet on the 8th but to be perfectly honest I think we would be better forgetting about tails and socks and parafin, and catching trains on a sunday (and work the next day) and have a decent night on a friday or a sat night another time. You might see him on the 8th I suppose but I think it would be much nicer of us all to have a propper night and lavish our attention on him before he goes, so if anyone else agrees lets have a seperate night for lee.

We can meet, eat, drink, cry, hug, drink again. Can we get some ideas going, hes moving at the end of Feburary, date unknown to me as of yet.

Hey guys, Right i think that the meet on the 14th will be better if we all bring some nibbles, and some beer, meet up at castlefield at about 4pm? ( or later if preferred) and can have a couple of hours of daylight to socialise and chat and then when dusk falls is when the fire comes out. I will be bringing my camera and tripod as well so i can get some photos for memories or the greatest group of fire spinners in manchester!!!

ATM i think we might need to spread the word a little more and get as many ppl coming as we can!!! its gunna be great.

thanks for burning with me

I'd like some inof on the next one too. I'm still around Manchester, though its been a while since I came to a meet with you guys.

Just started looking through pictures on my hard drive, and found some from the 2007 meets. Figured my camera could do with a bit more mileage these days, so I'll see about coming to the next one.

Hello all.

Any of you interested in starting a performance group in Manchester?

If you are, please email me on ohcheekycheeky@gmail.com.

We're just getting ideas together right now and have a few performances lined up providing this comes togther.

Only get in touch now if you know you have the time and committment, as it'll take a bit of work to get this off the ground.

Cheers!

Em

Sorry to hear that Bubbles... frown hug

How about this - instead of asking for when a meet is on, why don't you suggest a date when you CAN come and we'll come along too?

It happens you know... tongue2 hug
