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:Hi. Am hoping to come to the meet tomorrow with a friend. Can't get there till 6ish though. Will people still be there? Came along last time about 4ish but there were only a couple of people there and I chickened out! Are newbies welcome to just turn up?

Posted:Curly, if you're gonna start spinning you'll need the courage to do alot more than just say 'hello' to random strangers!

Just say hi to whoever's there!

As I said I'll get there from about 2-3pm...

Posted:Actually, I'm pretty good at saying hello to random strangers! Just some of the posts on here made me wonder how welcoming the group was to newbies! But I've been spinning for a while and am dead keen to learn more and meet other poisters so will hopefully be there, and if not then another one soon. smile

Posted:The groups very welcoming to newbies smile I've only managed to make it once, but they're all lovely. (As long as you don't mind being threatened with electricution! wink )

Well, wish I could make it, but 2500 word essay to write this weekend. But, my course is coming to an end, so if you have any meets soon after this one, I'll probably be able to make it. I miss spinning poi, and juggling and stuff, its been far too long.

dance like nobody is watching
and hula hoop like wiggling will save the world.

Posted:Well, looks like I'll be coming this week. After last time though, won't get there until a bit later this time. I was there from about 3:30 last time but no-one else seemed to be - so I left about 4. But who knows, if I get bored at home I may come slighty earlier with the promise of someone being there...



In the meantime I guess I'll go practice on Viccy Park so I don't look quite as hopeless.



And curlywurly - you won't be the only newbie. *waves*. Odd, I've jsut eaten one of your namesakes...

Posted:That was a lovely meet! I was there from 2pm till the end and was very much nearly spent!

Thanks to Chris's friend Pete for catering to the narcissists and being a game cameraman!

Chris that Barbecue was a brilliant idea! Next time let us all chip in for it!

***For the next big one, would everyone be willing to work on something to put on video? I wanna see about making a Manchester meet video!

Yeah, regarding new venue - Castlefield or Platt fields?
