Posted: ******** USEFUL INFORMATION POST *********



Right then my lovelies. There are currently TWO Birmingham meets each week:



Perple Mermaid Circus Society

Time: 5-7pm

Day: MONDAY

Location: The Underground, The Guild, University of Birmingham.

More information at THIS WEBSITE

All uni and non-uni people welcome, just 3 to join and free every time. Indoor play space with jugglers, spinners, a lovely range of toys and skills and happy people to learn from and teach. Usually followed by a pint upstairs in the Guild bar biggrin

Directions from University Station: (from New Street) Exit station and turn LEFT. Walk towards the big statue thing, and continue walking straight down the hill until you reach a crossroads and cobbled square. Continue STRAIGHT ON through the low square archway outside 'Staff House' and keep going STRAIGHT through the big green space amongst uni buildings. Carry on STRAIGHT through the archway on the other side, and past the Poynting/Physics building (on your left) until you reach a BIG brick building slightly on your left - this is the GUILD. The underground is inside- ask someone at the main desk! smile



Sunday Fire Nights

Time: 4pm onwards

Day: SUNDAY (when dry)

Location: Selly Park, Selly Oak, Birmingham (until further notice) HERE'S A MAP

Directions from Station: If coming in on replacement Bus Service, go OVER the bridge onto platform 2, out of the station and turn RIGHT. You will be on Heely Road. At the TOP of Heely Road is a crossroads. Umberslade Road is straight ahead, and Raddlebarn Road is left and right. Turn LEFT along Raddlebarn and walk along til you see the park on the other side (roughly opposite Dawlish Road)



Trains leave New Street Station regularly from platform 11b (sometimes 8b, 9b and 10b as well) in the direction on Redditch. There is currently work on the line at weekends so you'll have to use the replacement bus that goes from outside new street to get to sunday fun - but it's really very easy and drops you at the station so is NO excuse! hahahahaaaaaa



Some people meet on Thursday's at Aston University. I'll post more info about this one when I get it smile



Come and BURN STUFF, get inspiration, bounce about and have fun with us......



If you need any other information or a contact number please pm me and I'll see what I can do biggrin

(And, I am Chinese)

Ros, Selly park on Sundays sounds good (tho it is a bit far from central).

Jonathon, would be really nice to meet you up for a lunchtime spin on Thur(s) near aston Lake. (at least i got something to look forward to , rather than the boring tutorial!)

In fact, I think the weather will be good tomorrow (dry and sunny). Fancy a spin tomorrow afternoon( i mean sunday), anyone?

Posted:Currently, pre-finding a job my Sundays are free so I can come to anything then...really have to find one at some point. Monday my last lecture ends at 5 so by the time I got the train and found the place there wouldn't be much to do before coming back unless it continued elsewhere after 7.



If I could manage to get to Selly Park I would today if it happens...I could always appear at the station and randomly look for a bus if one goes there?

Posted:Thanks for a lovely spin. Sorry for getting random at the end - my brain is tired and I needed to sleep.

Sundays are good for spinning I reckon, though fire during the week would be good too.

Just post here when you want to spin or text, and we'll sort it out I reckon - (unless someone wants to make an actual plan?!?)

Posted:Thanks everyone !
very enjoyable spinning afternoon.

Yes, Sundays is nice. (but i have to go to Nottingham, Durham and London convention on these coming weekends). then the following weekend, Froggie may organise a big meet up.

However, i am up for a spin at any time weekday. Just give me a text or something.

At the meantime, i think i will look for a place, which is well/half lighted, high ceiling, safe for fire and hopefully warm. seems like an impossible task!

Posted:yeah, that was a jolly good spin, although I was notably lacking in any kind of skill. I think I might be getting a bit stuck in a rut...

Anyway, Sundays would be good for me too in theory, but in practice i may be a busybusybee.

Just had a thought, I know a few places outdoors that would be great to have a burn in. Maybe we should meet up midweek (for Eccles) for a non-burny spin and asess their relative merits. Hur. I said 'ass'. Hur hur.

i missed a spin meet today?!
damn. I stop trolling the forums for like 3 days and i miss everything frown
today was free for me too. oh well, maybe next time then.

As for thursdays, I can make that too since it's just outside my front door (kinda). it's literally a 2-3 minute walk away to the lake.

Still gonna be there tomorrow evening at Birm Uni. Later biggrin

Posted:Can't make it for a decent length of time tommorow but untill I find a job I am free after 5 monday, after 12 tuesday, all of wednesday, after 5 thursday, all of Fri, Sat and Sun for term time. Always up for a spin, although occassionally I might have to study.

Will take me longer to get places though as I'm in Coventry, and shall probably encounter problems finding my way to places in Birmingham.

Also was a fun spin, glad to meet some interesting people.

Posted:Well then.

I'd like to spin on Sundays - which should be fine for most people but not Eccles for the next few eeks. But I'm now coming to Notts (shh!) too so won't be til the end of oct I think. Then it's cold and a matter of finding some space undercover and accessible.

I suggested Selly Park becuase it's easy for me, sandy, lex, rob, chuff. But it's not easy for eccles, Jon, Kieron, Seraph. So could someone think about a place half way ish?

Hmm. Organization. Not my strongest point rolleyes

Posted:Thursday lunchtime, ie tomorrow (eek! Where did the first half of the week go?): I've got to go on-site for 2, so how about by the lake at 12.30?

Going to Nottingham, fluffy? What happened to the plan? ;o)


Sundays: The only place halfway between Selly Park and my house is Cannon Hill Park and I think we'd get spanked fairly quickly if we span fire there. Selly Park's only one bus ride and a 10-ish minute walk for eccles and thelost_seraph though, and the same plus a train for Kieron. Maybe we could rotate? I've got a good park fairly near my flat and very close to the Rainbow where pre and post-spin drinks could be quaffed...

Posted:For tomorrow Aston Lake, I think i will have an hour lunch between 12-2pm, i am not sure how long i can spin because i still have my afternoon class. But i am sure Jonathan and The lost seraph can (may) stay longer.

so, just text me or something when around.

Cool, seems we have a bigger group now!
(kieron, to get there: walk up Corporation street like last time, but you have to walk ALL the way till the end, pass a roundabout, pass Tesco express, pass STA travel, get to Aston UNI and here is the lake, about 10-15mins from New street)

I'm up for whenever but I don't think I can spin for long because I kinda pulled a muscle (or few) playing badminton for the first time in 3 months.

yes, i'm a lazy s*** and you'll soon hear more about it probably biggrin
