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)

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.

'lo luvlies ubblove hug

Now Flashpoint can't go to Falmouth and no-one's heard from Andy the Poi for ages (another car), suggestion is to hire a mini-bus. Obviously that's gonna mean more of a committment to going but I reckon it'd work out cheaper in the long run.

I think I can drive up to a 12-seater on a car licence so what do you reckon and who's up for it? I'll get some prices and let you know.

Posted:With you at the wheel sounds good, what costs are we looking at for Falmouth? I tried reading the thread but I'm soaked in Vinegar!

Its good to know your giving something back Flash, is it voluntary? Or you working for the Man?

Posted:Try the thread called 'Falmouth 3 - the useful one' (don't know how you put links in, idiot that I am). At the beginning you'll find details on camping & stuff.

I vote we have a proper get together on 27th for everyone who wants to go to Falmouth and make sure we're all clear - otherwise we'll be posting/pm-ing/txting til the cows come home and still not be clear! Be a shame to miss out on what promises to be an excellent weekend weavesmiley juggle
