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:generally the manchester threads are just people discussing what the're going to do at Rock World or who they snogged at Rock World. It's too hard to read through all the crap to find any information.

I don't read the falmouth threads for very similar reasons....


I was kind of thinking that if people had important information they would text me like they told me they would on my birthday...

Posted:Have a good spin you lot. I was hoping to come down but it's been a well rough weekend and i'm on a huge i hate men trip, Dr. Mike and Siy were going to come with me too Millhouse. Don't know if Mike is still going to go, very much Siy is, he's at MM 2nite either way so you'll probably speak to him there.

Oh i think they're letting people do poi in C*ckworld again if anyone is interested, i didn't get told of for it last night (ok it was about 6am)...

More to the point, she 26, has a degree of sense and good taste (if you ignore that liking Vanize silliness)

Oh my god. I have never been into this thread before. How very interesting.

Havokist... unless there is some other Irish woman coming that I don't know about, I suspect you may be talking about me. That's very amusing. Y'see, while it is flattering and lovely that you would be interested in seeing me spin... I regret to inform you that I'm not so great with the ol' poi so you might not be so impressed after all...

Canuts... "a degree of sense and good taste" - a degree? A mere degree?!! Darling, i am a veritable pillar of common sense. Ahem. As for good taste... goddamit, I like Schpongle, isn't that enough?!!

"if you ignore that liking Vanize silliness"
