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:there's at least 3 spaces in my car for pip.

Jen - if pete is not giving you a lift you are more than welcome as you definitely asked first.

Dave - you too.

I've got to call tobi and ask him what he's doing as I have a vague memory of him asking about it too. Also got to see if kaz is well enough to come with me. She's not been well all week frown

Umm... so I guess if those people are all in that's the car full but i'll post later when I know more.

I will probably be leaving sheffield about 9 - 10ish on saturday so anyone who wants a lift back then and can fit in is welcome.

Seye: I'd be up for Castlefield (though I suspect some will get offended that we even DARE suggest someplace else tongue) (I'm still of two minds whether to go to Whirl-Y-Gig in London)

Dawn: Surely a fire meet and bonfire night will go hand in hand but on the other hand should we really be celebrating the failure to blow up the houses of parliament? biggrin
