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)

Posted:9th sounds great to me Tobi.

Seye ended up not doing a set, there were that many that wanted to spin, Seye was advised to spin after the renegade show on the sunday night, but that didn't end until nearly 4am and he had to be up for driving on the monday morning.
But overall it was an excellent weekend smile

Posted:Hey, anyone mind if I tag along?
I'm new to this site and poi in general to be honest.
I'm a complete novice, I'm alright though, I'd love to meet some fellow Poiers.
I'm slowly working my way around the site.

So what's the usual drill with these things then?

Posted:I think the next one is gonna be 9th July - this Sunday in Fact.... usual drill is meet up in Picadilly Gardens OR Gasworks at 3pm then either stay at the Gasworks is it looks a bit pants weatherwise (or if no one can be arsed moving) or move other to Platt Fields about 4ish...

Anyone feel free to contradict me or change the plans as I have no idea what suits everyone but Dan and firelight that is the general gist...

Posted:This sounds cool, what sort of number's are going to be showing up?
I'm not sure if I can make it, but I will try.
I'm not sure where the Gas Works is, so I'd probably meet at the Gardens.
I'll find out if I can or can't make it as soon as I can, just to prevent anyone waiting for me for ages if I don't go.
Are all meets in Central Manchester,
I guess it is pretty much central.
