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:Never before have a been to a more-accident prone meet!

Lo being smacked in the face by some wayward poi

Munky whacking himself in the eye with some Monkey-fists (I'm sure the irony isn't lost on anyone) - Was fortunate that we had medics on hand to keep the damage minimal (thumbs up to Lou and Tobi)

And Tobi singeing his hair whilst being dangled/straddling Pete over the firepit

And me setting my cardigan (yes, cardigan...) on fire.

Overall t'was a good meet (now if only we could get the poles to stop turning and keep winter in the winter months that would be a godsend)

Posted:Dave it was actually a wayward meteor that struck Lo (a very heavy one at that, belonging to Tobi)

but yes was a fun meet, destipte getting shouted at by my mum when i got home from work today for stinking the whole house out with the smoke on my clothes eek ubblol

and that girl you guys left me on the bus with freaked me out slightly, she was deffinatly on some form of narcotic (or has some hyperactivity issues). the clincher was when she laughed with shock and supprise (yes she started laughing) when i told her about me havin a nail in my right leg and that being the reason i couldnt go to her boyfriends gig at the end of the month (i go in to have it removed the next day) she just creeped me out confused

Just to be sure everyone's updated:

We've got a quote for the lovebus of 350 which will work out about 30 a peice plus petrol money. We'll pick people up from the gassworks about 2pm on Weds 19th April & drop you back off there when we get back on Monday 24th. There's just too many people to do individual pick-up's. We've still got plans to swing by the eden project on the way back on monday too.

So far I've got 12 people interested which is our max capacity. So if you've recieved this PM & are not coming, let me know asap cause there's others who could take your place.

We'll need a deposit to book & I'll let you know when I know how much that'll be, hopefully you can get that to us at the next meet?

Hopefully that all made sense. I'm running on empty today! Please PM me with questions, I don't get to read HOP much but I always get my e-mails.

Yea! Road Trip!


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)
