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)

To be honest had you not brought it up I would've forgotten it! Can't even remember how much you owe me (probably 20)

I think there's another meet on the 4th June for Skribble's birthday. So there's one for ye!

I owe everyone in the world money, but am currently living on a tenner a week for food :-( sorry guys...Dave I owe you a tenner, hazel I owe you about 11 quid for bjc petrol...gah, I'm soooo sorry guys...
but as soon as i get my GRADUATE LOAN (hurrah), I shall give everyone money and also beer

The mini meet was quite random...police, scary drunk men (hiding behind men with weaponry was great for making scary drunk men go away...ta boys!) but very very fun as usual!

*hugs to y'all*

Well we normally meet in the Gardens around 3ish then move to the Gasworks around 4-5 pm,

We changed it for the last one cos people wanted to check out Castlefield as it is a much better venue, but that never worked out.

That's my dad's idea of veggie cooking anyways.
