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:Dan, I replyed to your PM, and you will know me (as peet pointed out above) by the geeky expresion and the bag of toys wink

I saw Lee a few days ago on Urbis and he said he is stopping spinning (indefinatly) as he has too much else on in his life right now to have time for it.

I vote for gasworks as well sa it was pissing it down all last night and looks like we had some more today. So the ground will be soaking meaning we can't sit on the grass.

Posted:Its ok cat, I took a video cam with me to make a manchester video. So you can be with us whenever you watch it in spirit lol.

Speaking of, thanks stake for taking some footage for me. I havnt looked through it yet but theres about 40 mins on the tape so there should be enough to make a good video. Ive set a target for its completion, abit ambitious since ive never done this before but two weeks so thats the 24th of July

Posted:Sorry I left a bit early from it guys, I had to get back to my lady, it was her birthday the next day, and I needed to wrap presents and get to hers in time for midnight, I timed it quite well, got to hers for the penalties at the end of the match (Not that I really care for football).

I can't wait to see that video, and the next meet, I left before the fire came out rolleyes

Sorry I didn't speak to many of you, I was quite nervous, and you all seemed to know each other pretty well.
I guess I felt a bit out of it.
Just have to wait for the next few meets then, I guess biggrin

the 30th sounds good biggrin


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.
