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 https://delizium.fotopic.net/c291964.html

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)

Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

I'm a lot Krazy with a K all the time




speaking of k's went to krazyhouse last night was good what with the whole 50p drinks thing and only 3 other spinners so even my basic stuff pulled the crowds heehee. did get abandoned by the wigan lot tho (about 14 others) so wandered streets of liverpool for 6 hours due to strandedness. much fun.

I do always so enjoy it when you turn up, you do have the best toys.

The skipping rope was fun even though i have half a ponytail now the sword was cool as hell, even if it did burn my finger and make skinning up seem wierd!

Loki Robs only back for a few weeks so another meet could be being organised, any takers?????

The skipping ropes were amazing! And of course i was scared Flash, i'd never played with fire before! I've not got any burns which i'm pretty chuffed about, i've got a big bruise on my elbow though...
I'm undecided on whether to get some firepoi or a skipping rope now... The wire wool was well cool too!! Definately gonna come to these more often now! biggrin

lol yes tis me Ammie. And if you got fire poi maybe the kid next door will think twice about throwing stuff at you. They'll either be scared shitless of the 'crazy fire girl next door' or just gormlessley watch the purdy flames.
