Posted:If you are already here then you know what spinny fun can be had (even if it is slacky at the moment) and if your in the area or fancy coming to one of the meets then this is the thread for you. We are a friendly bunch of 'spinners' who love to meet up for spinny goodness biggrin



If your just passing through our little town and fancy meeting up just PM me and i will see what we can do.



this is where we spin





GATHERINGS





Next one is 13th-14th september wink........



Main Meets are the second weekend of every month (usualy)

ROLL ON THE SUN!! . Well there is nothing i can do about the cold or the wet or the wind so its meets at mine smile which is rather fun and we have a nice piece of park land less than 5 minutes from my house,(we can go to riv too as that is the main park in town and only 20 minutes from my house)the park near my house it also rather good for a bit of power kiting if the wind is good enough and not too gusty.This is very handy if it is a bit of a dodge weather day as if the sun comes out its easy to quickley pop out.As for near by shops,i live just up the road from our local green which does have shops a bargain booze, takeaways etc.

Lucy.. at UNI.. we miss her

Nichola..

Gooooooooodie ? on spelling that right "





the plan usualy goes like this... wink



First day around 12pm till when ever you have to go firey fun around 8-9 - Sunday meet at mine 1pm (unless you have stopped over) same as above but with firey fun around 9



If i have enough wood then there is a fire out the back so we can sit around and keep warm.My house is a non smoking house because of the kids although that is another reason why we sit outside as i do not mind smoking in the garden. Also feel free to bring food and drink too, you are more than welcome to use my cooker and the general rule is.. use it clean it smile



Both the park and my house are not far from the train or bus staion









PM me if you need any more information or if you wish to be added to the HOPpers in town list

maybe i was assuming that everyone had there perspective upsidown and the south polew as at the top instead of the bottom and it was only percieved the other way because most of the people who decide that sorta stuff are on the northern hemisphere.
never thought a that did ya? wink

Posted:I think you need the number 48 bus from Pool Meadow. I could be wrong of course. Youre at Coventry university right? Im on Warwick University Campus now, and I found their juggling society today, was such a happy bunny!

Hope you find your way to Nuneaton alright smile

Any time i'm free or work can be put off i'm up for a spin, also would be useful to know somewhere that sells parraffin

Yeah, I go pretty regularly. Admittedly it has been a bit cold to new pepople in the past, mainly because a lot of the people there have been going for a while and have got a bit cliquey, simply because they know each other so well.

I nearly stopped going because of this but perservered and the old-timers are quite friendly one you get to know them.

However last Monday was the first meet of the new academic year and it's a lot more welcoming and friendly this year. We've got more socials, free beer at the Renegade stage (1st Monday of every month, ie this coming 03/10/05) and workshops, including poi workshops led by our very own Fluffy Napalm Fairy! Please come along, and bring your friend! Hopefully he'll enjoy it more this time...

Also Flid, being the only spinner I know exists in Coventry, any time i'm not in a lecture i'm free and willing to spin if you wanted to. I'm not very good, still haven't got antispins or isolating more than buzzsaw, but I won't constantly bug you to teach wink Just need someone else to spin fire with occassionally.

5pm-7pm, Mondays, University of Birmingham Student's Guild, basement thereof.

Also I usually spin for half an hour at Aston University lakeside on my lunchbreak (any time between 12 noon and 2pm but usually 1-1:30 ish), sometimes thelost_seraph comes along too.

PM me if you're interested in coming along so I can tell you who to look for.

Posted:For the Purple Mermaid thing, does it still start from 5 to 7pm on Monday?
Last year, i can't make most of the Monday, because I do not finish work until 6pm.
so just hope Ros or Sandy can push the finshing time later...

by the way, if anyone around Birmingham do up for a spin, just give me a PM.
