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:Yeah, it turned out the recompense for doing the night wasn't what I'd been led to believe, it wasn't even going to over my expenses in the end so I couldn't make it frown

Good night?

Posted:As is the law of the Sod, I appear to have just missed a meet.
I have recently decided I need to spin more and socialise with you people more also. Too many great people to not have in my live.
Hope everyone had a good Christmas and has a great New Year

Posted:Yes, and yes. Next one's the 4th in Castlefield. Everyone WILL turn up ( smile ) because it's the Manc Meet's 4th birthday, if I can count right. All spinners, past and present, are welcome, so I expect to see Kit, Ro, Sam and Ree and all the other lovelies that it has been my great fortune to be aquainted with. So Ner. Plus there will be cake, and stuff, and snacks and drinks for all! Dont forget to bring warm clothing though...

Posted:25th sounds good, i'll try to make it, and i'll even set a load of reminders, but i'm not garuntee-ing anything tongue2

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.
