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:well im still iffy because i have training that will probs last till friday afternoon, and i dont know and i dont know if anyone else is going then...



if we can get a 15 seater, bear in mind theres no luggage area so id guess between 4 and 6 seats will be needed for the luggage etc, and last time the minibus was packed full!



we have a list of people but we still need a) another driver (not fair on elaine to drive alone) this has to be someone over 21 or 25 im not sure, and the licence.



deposits are high, some ive found to be 500, but i have actually found one manchester company and the prices which follows is for the bus, including petrol and a driver.

from the thurs till monday:



16 seater - 995

24 seater - 1100

30 seater - 1350

52 seater coach - 1650



although it may be 16, 24 or 30 seats, not that many people can go on it because there will need to be space for luggage. BUT if somehow we manage to get 52 people we can all hire the coach and itll only cost us around 30 each!



anyways, back to work lol



and most impotantly, who has approx

There should be luggage space as soon as we hit the 24 seaters.



I have asked some of the Leeds crowd to see if any of them will be interested so it is possible to make 20. Should we advertise on the Falmouth Wiki page to see who else would want in?s

There should be a lauggage boot at the back of the bus. It looked kind of small tho so we will need to pack light. When would be a good time to gather up the funds? Would the 27th be too late for us to gather the money and make a booking? I could probably pay for some the Liverpool people and get the money off them afterwards but I am not sure if I could go beyond that. I will get in touch with the Leeds crowd asap and see if they want some seats. wink



Oh yeah, is there a chance that we might pick up some people along the way? There seems to be people who are desperates for ride to Falmouth. If we could plot out gathering points along the M6 then we could get more people roped into this wacky trip! biggrin
