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:My 'Leaving' meet is a bit of a cheat as I actually leave about a week and a half after it! But it leaves the next weekend free for Falmouth. But do come! If only to meet sure England has finally gotten rid of me. biggrin



The grassy area is only an option if it's not wet or pissing it down. If it gets REALLY wet we can go under the railway bridge next to it.



Josh! Argh! But I've just realised I could've looked for them on myspace. Dammit.



Steaks I won't be at Pride as I object to paying 15 squid to get into a street full of bars. Instead I'm off to Edinburgh to check out the festival for a weekend. Have fun if you do go. Oh yeah, if you DO have that SIM card that'd be sweet, I had long forgotten about it! sorry frown



MASS BURN AT THE NEXT MEET ANYONE? (Unless the impromptu Tony Wilson memorial is still there...)

For those who are definitely coming to the next one - anyone fancy a mass burn? About 8-9pm? i.e. when it gets dark enough?

From about 3pm-ish at Castlefield?

Posted:Heya guys, I've posted on the introduce yourself boards but I thought there's be no harm in giving a quick "Hey" on here too.

My name's Carl but generally known as "Pear". I'm 24 and live in Glossop, Just outstide Manchester. I'm new to poi but have been spinning devil sticks and diablo for over a year.

I heard about this site from a friend, who got me into poi, but I don't think he's ever actually posted or met any of you guys. He asked me if I fancied coming along and I said yeah, I'll have a look into it. Which brings me nicely to my whole point of being here wink

Am I right in saying the next meet is on this sat? if so that sux coz I know we can't make it. But I hope to keep an eye out for the next one.

thanks x
