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)

OK - hopefully that's everyone trapped now, I picked up a few from before the list started, added in a 'meet only' section and an unconfirmed section.

Check your name is in the right section for 18th!

If you quote the last posting of the list it keeps the pretty formatting (pretty useful that is!) and please makesure you're on the last page of the thread or you'll end up knocking people off (Martin!)

I'll PM Hanky and Iggsy to make sure they know it's not 11th

As to venue for the meal, it seems we have 2 choices:

1. start in Curry Milke/Rusholme for meal then make our way up to Picc Gardens - Millhouse to book

2. meal in city centre then to Picc gardens - no need to book, there's enough places aren't there?

3. no preference - go with the flow

Can all those eating please put 1, 2, or 3 at the side of their name please?

Posted:I say Tai wu too its soooooo yummmeee, used to work just behind it and went in there tons, its really good. And if they have that meal for a 5 buffet thingy on then thats great, also its very close the gas works which makes it easier to roll ourselves down there after eating lots of scrummy food!!!!!! Oh and just to add MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE!!!!!!

Posted:Aww?! Well how much is this gonna cost us each? Im sure I could easily pay for you, call it a christmas present if you like, and if not then there is allways the spinning afterwards wich will be nice and cheap, just a train ticket for less than a fiver.
