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:Just noticed the 33rd page and realised I'd missed the bit about changing it to 18th - ooooops redface have to watch out for that...

Tobi and Will can you please let us know ASAP what day(s) you can make cos I've got Santa Runs around the country to fit in before Christmas so I need to know pretty soon if poss.

Also, Jen's right - the closer it gets to Christmas and the more people coming for the meal and not just the spin the more important it will be to book somewhere.....

Hope everyone can make it.........

Posted:Tobi shall I change my bedding for you? Do you want to toptotoe with Elaine?
As I said I'm not at mine at all almost so my bed is yours to use.

If we went to Jaffa(Where I took elaine and Kyle to the other week) they have a 22 seater table up stairs so I'm sure we could fit there its Turkish/kurdish and they do great Pizza!

Doe's anyone fancy a little uncycle Hockey on the 10th? http://www.unicycle.uk.com/calendar.asp

Would make an interesting change to have someone pleasant at the meets. Rather than this mismatched bunch of miscreants wink

Posted:Hello Manchester Spinners!

I am the promoter for FAC 471: 'Hot - A Celebration of the Hacienda' which is taking place at the Manchester Academy this coming Saturday (check out www.hacienda-hot.com for the line up). This is an OFFICIAL celebration, with a Factory classification etc (not another rip-off). Tickets are selling quick and it is sure to be a fantastic event.

I am in desperate need of some MANCHESTER SPINNERS! I would love to have some people spinning fire outside the venue while people are coming in, and if anyone has any other mad stuff they do (crazy costumes, stilt walking etc) then I would love you to come along.

It is this Saturday so please get in touch asap and we can sort something out. Please mail me back here.

Speak soon!

OLIVER
