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)

I miss the Manc meets frown



then go down to London, rally up the spinners and drag them up here tongue

Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;

Posted:platt as in platt fields park? it'd be a nicer place, but it not as near to town as gasworks, which may be a problem for people that live the opposite side of manchester, unless we have the meets on saturday or friday or when people can stay at one of the spinners' who lives nearby ish

Posted:hi Justwalk
I think the next one is on the 17th probably at Platt fields park just down oxford rd
there is a party at Elaine's house for some of the regulars. but I cant go to that (gurrr dam my social life)

I am willing to teach you poi and staff (am better at poi than staff) apparently I'm not a bad teacher

Will let you know more as we get a bit more organised yeh sorry this thread is a bit disorganised I just cant seem to keep this rowdy bunch in check

I will do something about the first post soon to make it a bit more inviting to newcomers we are trying Platt fields park for the first time as we seem to be getting some undesirables at the gas works


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)

I'm sure you could crash on my sofa Tobi, living in a new house now with the guy who got me spinning and a unicyclist so I'm sure it'd be no problem.
