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:It is always more than one song at once at Monster, it's all mash-ups, hip-hop, rock, dance, everything! And you can do poi and staff and everything there, unlike bleedin Rockworld where you get told off unless it's 6am, when everyone is spankered out on the floor and you're the only one with the energy to move so injuring someone else is highly unlikely!!!!!!! frown



Was especially impressed with Dave's slyly sneaking back into the DJ box at closing time-a bit naughty!



And really impressed with the DJ who played Kate Bush-Running Up That Hill... I love that song, it's mint! I was like oooooh gotta dance! And anyone who goes in Rockworld-you know i don't do dancing lmao! I love Monster though, it's mint!



Thank you to everyone yesterday-speshly people who let me play with their fiery toys, even though i used Jen's to set my hair on fire! Oops... redface It's ok though, it was only a bit. I'll live. And thank you people for teaching me tricks! Millhouse, i finally got that thing over my head kinda right! Cheers chuck!



Roll on the next meet! Woooo! And more Monster Monster, i'll try be more organised next time instead of coming from work to poi then having to go to Siy's coz we didn't know we were going out then spending AGES faffing about! ubbidea Organisation is a word Siy doesn't believe in though-he's a Libra hehe (joke Kit & Mattchoo, and any other Librans)



Flash, yes I feel old, but i have been doing this for about 6 years now... At 19, 6 years of clubbing is making me feel old lol! biggrin

Posted:Byyyyy eck amy, i know how you feel. Jillys is enough to tire anyone out, and in my day we didn't have any of this hip and hop, emo, and spice girls youngsters have today, we had to make do with happy hardcore, ebm, metal and suchlike. biggrin

lol do you honestly think you're going to stop clubbin any time soon though? With age usually comes better jobs and more money, more money just means you can go out more nights of the week smile

Posted:It's not just Jilly's lol, that hasn't made me feel old, that made me feel bored.
And i've had hip-hop since i was this big! >-<
And we had grunge, instead of emo, emo is just the next phase after grunge and nu-metal.

I'm not actually gonna stop clubbing! Don't be daft! You're right about the job thing, but i'm a student... So with the student loan and the overdraft comes my first year, and everyone KNOWS you don't have to work to pass your first year, lol. So it's a year of fun fun fun, getting kerschplatted and clubbing and practising purdy poi lol. I'll be living in Fallowfield in September too, wooo! Closer to town, and gonna be having LOADS of parties with my housemates Helen, Katie and possibly Robyn and Dani! Gonna be well good, and you're all invited hehe.

Sorry, was aimed at Sniper, Tripologist, Midian, etc! Hehe. I rarely dance for the simple fact that 90% of the time i tend to fall over! Flash can vouch for that lol, i fell flyin into the fire doors on Saturday night after the meet! Ouch! redface



I'm definately gonna get my mate Kev to come to the next meet, he used to do stuff like unicycle, diablo and juggling etc, so i reckon he'd well like it! Don't know if he's ever done it before though. Not seen him in ages, last time i saw him he was with a big group of drummers, playing african drums outside Marks & Spencers biggrin

it's not fun to have no one to contact with frown

so when is the next meet?


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.
