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)

Mill hun, Sorry for messing you about with this. I really thought the Welsh invasion was a non starter for this year.

I like the idea of this campsite though as it has the lodges so its not out of the question to have a mid winter meet. Something to break up those cold winter months ubblol If we can get them to let us use the site and we keep in their good books it might become a regular thing..... maybe?



Is the Wales invasion on? i couldn't find a thread last time I looked (I blame the senility...)

I Liked the look of the big communal space - Mill, does it have a high ceiling? biggrin. For the inaugaural North Western meet, hows about a combined Halloween/Bonfire night session either 29th/30th Oct or 5th/6th November?

Oh, and Brit Joe, she's more than worthy of your trumpeting and abeisance (huh?!) and will bask in your adoration. Bit it's only fair to warn you, you have fierce competition for the lady's attention - she has a veritable harem of biatches! ubblol

yay for Skully invading the Manc thread bounce bounce2

and Gayle too hug

I've stepped down from organising Invasions of places. I was ever only really meant to be organising the Welsh one. If you guys still want to arrange an Invasion of England I say go for it!

Just bear in mind 2 things.

1. You can never please everyone with the dates/venues/cost and you will just have to let some of them down. That isn't your fault its just the nature of the beast.
2. Some people you can never please, even if you bend over backwards and lick their toes. I advise you to pay them no mind, as they are not worth the effort.

Good luck organising and I look forward to seeing an "INVASION of ENGLAND" thread appearing because as long as I'm free on the weekend you pick, you can count on me being there.

hug ubbrollsmile
