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:Will, you're always welcome hug - we've not done a Friday night yet, i guess cos we usually meet up at 4 so we'll have to meet at 6 or something instead. Also it makes it hard for ppl who travel, Tobi, flashpoint, hanky etc

Trippie Hippie says he'd prefer Sunday for his birthday bash, so that's Sunday 27th folks - get it in your diaries. Boo hoo - no toffee vodka or beer for Wild Child frown

Written by:
Hello - sorry if this mail seems short but im trying to get ready for a job interview - wooo!!!

I am coming up with Minimaniac - he is driving.
We are staying in a hotel called Novotel - im not quite sure where abouts that is but apparently not far from the Cirque venue

We plan to arrive around 4 or 5 and i believe the show is at half 8 but i dont know about when it ends - MM has been sorting all that out.

We dont have any time we need to be back on saturday - just not rush hour i guess.

What else do u need to know? xxx

i thought we were meeting on the saturday...


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.

Posted:humm this is going to be a tough one redface if we want to meet vix and minimaniac we will have to meet up on Fri. before 7 to give them time to get to the show rolleyes.

how dose 4 sound to peeps keep it simple in Piccadilly gardens. cool

Minimaniac you can ether drive to the Trafford centre and get the tram into the centre (takes about 10 min) or drive to the centre and get the tram to the Trafford centre then come back to the pub with us. Or you could drive the lot is up to you. (i will pm you my mob no) ubbidea

I dont think I will be abler to get to many man peeps to the Trafford centre plus there is limited spinning space there.


So man peeps come to Piccadilly for 4pm on Fri. the 28th

WILL ubbangel get your ass down hear its a Fri. like you requested

miss lovely wild child ubblove if he asks nicely can you put up Mr will on the Fri. night to stop him moaning.
And someone tell Cantus ubbangel to come to.

Mike weavesmiley see who else you call pull from rock world and martin ubbloco bring as many as you can muster.

can someone let andithepoi ubbidea know see if he is still alive.

Vix and min pm me and I will try to sort this ubblove ubblove
