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)

World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

Posted:you didn't miss too much, there weren't as many people there, only about 15 ish.

the only major thing you missed was that Cantus's monkey kept invading the camera shot...

Posted:It was big Dawn pmsl! I thought she was going to have his guts for garters, Siy then gave the poi to little Mike who quickly had them taken off him by one of the bouncers... I was gutted though coz i was so bored and they took my poi away! He was doing poi (badly) in the middle of the dancefloor at about 4am and Dawn walked past and he smacked her full force on the head!! Hence why they got barred... I'll bring Siy to the meet lol, then you can all throw things at him. Then again, it is only Rockworld i suppose. That place put the Hell in hole i swear...



Hmmm....I'll have to ask Mike about that lol, i'll probably speak to him in a bit so it'll be the Spanish Inquisition hehe.



Teejay-i remember meeting you in Rockworld when my eye was just going down lol! I had the picture on my phone too and was showing everyone my first poi injury woohoo...



Here we go, poi injury complete with lack of make-up and fluffy hair!

When is the meet? Coz the 28th isn't a Friday, it's a Monday.



Oh and Millhouse-are u the moderator person on the MM site/forum. I missed the I out of Ginger in my name lol, is there anyway of changing it without making a new profile lol.
