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:I have a gig to go to on the 24th which means I'll leave about 7 or 8. I'd prefer not to go to a meet and feel like I have to rush off somewhere later. Otherwise 24th is a good date!



Okay, last meet we had the idea of having workshops to get everyone into gear to start spinning more. Seye and I found that Castlefield as a whole (not just the basin) was a quite a visually striking place so we had the idea to make a video involving everyone. So if you want to be on camera, doing anything, no matter what skill level you're at put your name forward.Otherwise I will film you anyway! tongue



Perhaps ending in a massing burn actually at the basin.



What do you say?

Posted:I can make the 24th. Will be pretty tired after workin from 6am.. but sack it, who cares! ubbrollsmile



All that stuff you mentioned Neon sounds cool! Though, I'll have to jus sit back and watch the mass burn, as I've got a long way to go before I'll be ready for the fire poi yet!



Anybody watchin Pride roll through town the day before? My Samba group - Sambangra - are playin in the parade, and I'll be there on Tamborim! biggrin

Posted:what a very good idea!

I was thinking trying to get a weekly thing going. On my travels EVERYWHERE has at least ONE weekly thing, and I don't see why it can't happen here!

Oh we can still have a big monthly one for everyone in the surrounding areas...

Posted:I could only do 24th for definite as I'm working the afternoon of 31st n not sure if I could get it off yet.. Though the earlier I know the better the chance. Either way, I'm not expecting others to base their decision around me with me be a newbie n all... I can always aim to make the next one smile
