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:Haha, got back in earlier for dinner. Great afternoon! The pictures are being moved onto the computer as i type (562 I ended up taking). I'll pick a number of the best ones, and upload what I can (once I work out how to do it :P).



Thanks for the tips and pointers on poi-spinning, and getting me learning a few new tricks smile



If it looks like I can make it next Sunday, I'll do that.

gah! censored work. I've now got a job interview on wednesday, which although is a good thing, means I need to put together a portfolio and so any hopes I had of actually making it have been yet again pretty much censored Well, maybe I'mm make a suprise apperance one day. Will be a suprise to me anyway...



Are you sure? You have all day today, monday and then tuesday surly you can do it within the space of three days? Come oooon 2 hours work tops, then maybe half an hour another day to polish it off. Come to the meeeeeeet. ubbrollsmile



Unfortunately I don't have all day Monday or Tuesday as I still have to go to school and make a mess of teaching people art. I'll make it one day. Either that or I'll probably go completely mad!

Posted:Hey all, great day yesterday.

Shame about the nice weather being so intermittent, but got some good play-time. The poi links are wearing out now I think, so I need to get those replaced. Also had fun trying to get the whip to work properly, although hitting myself in the face didn't bode too well frown

Hello to Lou, GG and Nate, as well as the other guys who I didn't get names of (or don't remember). Was good to nip down to that pub afterwards too, have a few drinks and what-not. GG, I'll give you a pool rematch next time :P

What happened after half of us left then? That music wasn't too much to my fancy, and had to be getting off. Trains and buses didn't go in my favour, and ended up losing a quid the phonebox that ate my money >_<
