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)

I cant make it now. I had to borrow the money of my parents to make it too this one (as was the others while I was job hunting), but there strapped for cash around the house so im gonna have to put this one off.



At least I start work on monday so I will have a wage by the time the next manchester meet comes around, and all future meets smile



This also means the manchester videos will be uploaded and edited sometime in October next month. As I'll have the means to upload it then.



I'll see everyone at the next one, and someone make sure Carrot_girl and her possible plus 1 are introduced and entertained well smile

Posted:Sorry I didn't go on the human pyramid. Last time I went on one it didn't end too well as someone's shoe slammed right into my achillies tendon. Developed a phobia of them since. (plus I'm not one to say 'no' more than once...)

Lee. He's ALL yours! (Don't sound so threatened biggrin ) He is rather limber though (I can see from your mile-wide grin that he puts it to good use!)

Posted:I believe the censored that spoiled the human pyramid was the same guy who was threateing Paul over a stray diablo near a new born baby (that should not have been there having only been born on Thursday).
I think his name is Lee and he is not a very nice person. His 'past-times' include getting drunk on Lambrini, beating up 10-15 year olds, abusing said youths, being acused of rape (not sure if this acusation is true or just a rumour).

Besides him, the meet was wonderful. Can't say anything that hasn't already been said already, except Hazel you will be missed, but everyone knows it's the right move. All the best and dont hesitate to ask for a meet if either you or Paul are in Manchester for any reason. You know many of us don't need an excuse to meet up for a spin wink

plus we got to see the elusive fraggle in his natural habitat wink


We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.
