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:* If you're coming from Town on Quay Street (Where AMC Cinemas, Opera House & Bar 38 are)*

- turn left at Granada Studios building (Big Red Letters on top of the Building)

- Keep walking to the (you'll pass the Museum front with the big shiny metal ball at the front) at the end of the street turn right and look for some stone steps. You'll see a canal, some flats and an outdoor theatre type thing...

*If you're coming down Whitworth Street*
Carry on walking down past the Hacienda Apartments, When you get to Deansgate Station cross the road and walk along the cobbled walkway, the canal should be on your left, after a series of bars and restaurants you wanna cross the canal and you'll find us...

Just checked the weather report and it seems that Gasworks is probably better as it looks likely to be a torrential downpour...



Just leave it to the weather to decide on Sunday.



- If mild or even Sunny - Castlefield



- If wet & Miserable - Gasworks!

Posted:so would it make sense for us to meet at the gasworks, and if it looks promising move down to castlefield?

We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
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 good with that. Though I KNOW that HOPpers will be far too lazy to move once they've settled even if the weather is nice. Especially when they remember Locos is less than a minute away... smile
