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)

Hey...
Saw you on HOP - hope this finds you well..
I used to poi alot but got bogged down with the whole 'real job' etc over the last couple of years and now feel a little old (urk, 29!) but really want to get back into it. Picked them up today and just felt amazing again! Anyway, I heard the Zion centre in Hulme did poi etc and was hoping someone might know something about it???.. or are there any meets planned in the near future?
Hope you don't mind me getting in touch, any info would be grand.
Cheers,
Helen

hello,
hope you dont mind, found your address on the hop website..dont know how long ago you wrote it, but if your still willing to teach im a fairly fast learner.
been spinning since last friday...using sox on strings, Ive ordered some pois but they wont be here till mid week next week.
Ive got a few of the basics, but am having difficulty understanding the instructions for all the moves without knowing what it looks like. im probably going wrong without knowing it.
where abouts outside of Manchester are you?

regards
emily
