Posted:i live in whitworth park halls, which is about 2 seconds away from where tony830 said he lived. im definitely up for catching a bus down towards the fallowfield side of the land for a mini spin. i dont know anything further than platt fields park though, and i prob wont make this weekend or the weekend after (you know, student social lives, party hard, sleep little, die quietly) but its an ace idea. i know millhouse lives in rusholme which is near platt fields park so u could prob convince him that its a good idea. so yeah, apart from the next 2 weekends, im free, but totally do a meet in the next 2 weeks if u have ppl who are up for it, ill come to the second one (cos im sure ull have a second one hey?) peace

Posted:Thats cool - I'm sure I'll be making everyone spin fire at least once a week now I'm up here.

The weekend you mentioned is probably going to be the weekend of the next big meet at the gas works. If its not I'm sure we can arrange something for then anyway.

If you will teach me to juggle clubs I'll show you any poi tricks you want.

I'm a bit lame when it comes to juggling. I never practise enough but I have 3 clubs and am determined to learn a few patterns and how to pass.

I'll wait to see what the others say before suggesting a date.

Posted:Im free most weekends, and know roughly where most of the parks in witworth/fallowfield/rusholme are.
Ree also lives near to Platt Fields park and i think Munkey lives in rusholme somewhere as well.

Next weekend sounds good in ladybarn park as its only a short walk from wilmslow road and all the student busses, but is far enough to be fairly secluded (from what i remember of it)

The other alternatives (so far) are Fog Lane Park and Platt Fields Park I dont know the area's round them that well yet so I cant say whats there.




Fog Lane Park has the Burnage train station about a 3 minute walk from it, and there's also busses like the 50 and the 44 that run nearby.

Platt Fields Park is the park that we started having the meets in at the end of last summer, and I think we may be moving back to there when it starts to get a bit warmer. There are a whole load of busses that run from manchester to various places that go near to the park.

To be honest, i think Lady Barn Park may be the best option to go for a spin in, and a mini meet on the weekend of the 4th and 5th may be a good idea, although i'm up for a meet near enough any time ubbrollsmile

Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;

We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

Posted:Sweet.

So we're going with next weekend - I dont mind where they're all near enough really. Might try to bring my housemate and his video camera down. See if we can get any footage to stick on my nice big empty server biggrin

I'll sort out posting directions up if people need them when we get it sorted.

My new fire poi should be here either in the morning or the next day.

Posted:next weekend? As in 4th/5th? I think i'll b around, althought there might be a juggling convention in nottingham that wisks me away. I'm in Salford, but have a car so the whole of the north is local as far as i'm concerned! I can pick people up on the way too. Sat is perfect for me - no work to get in the way. Reckon I can drag Laura & Rob along too, we spend plenty of sat nights spinning fire in the garden anyways.

Anyone reckon they can bring tunes? The only portable sound system I got is my car stereo & I think it's suffering a little bass abuse redface

Seye & tony830, you should come play with us at quirkers juggling club in st Werberg's church hall on Mondays. Big warm indoor space to juggle/spin etc in 7.30 till we get bored & go to the pub.

Posted:hey, i live next to platt field park so that would be good. although last time there was a load of scallies in the park and they were acting like dicks.
well i'm free 4th or 5th so i'll definately be down n this time i'm gonna bring more beer and more fuel.

i'd say meet up at platt fields on the 4th at 6pm. reasons?
1) friday is a horrible day and to have something good to look foreward to will make it bearable
2) 6pm is when its dark
3) theres a bus that goes past platt fields every 10 seconds at that time of night so its reaaaaaaally easy to get to
4) hardys well is on the one side of the park
5) fallowfield and all the wonderful bars are on the other side
6) from what i gather everyone knows where platt fields is and for most of us student layabouts its withing walking distance

what u think?

Posted:If I come and if I can find 4 double D batterys I could bring a portable cd player down, if I do that I miiight not have room for fuel (and poi come to think of it) in my bag so I might need to borrow fuel off everyone else, oor I could leave the fire poi at home and just bring my glowpoi (the right ones this time lol). But I'll make up my mind later on in the week and let everyone know if im bringing it or not, saves people bringing down more than one cd player



Hmm platt fields im not sure the weathers really good enough for plattfields just yet, its totally exposed to the misserable wintery weather we havnt lost just yet.

Posted:Not that I'm an argumentative sod... but....my 2p's...

us 9-5'ers are much more bouncy & spinny when they haven't rushed straight out to play from work.
the earliest I could make it over on a friday night would be about 7 & that's without eating tea.
it'd be nice to meet people kinda 30 mins - an hour before it goes dark as some of us haven't met in daylight before which can make it kinda hard to know who you're talking to.
I've never been to Lady Barn Park but the aspects of it being easy to access & secluded from scallies make it most apealing to me.

will you be coming from blackburn joe? if a lift from a train station in manchester helps out with carrying stuff it's no probs.

Posted:I'm going to agree with Steaks and suggest 5pm Saturday 4th March - Ladybarn Park, Withington.



If there's not loads of us we could relocate to my garden for tea / fridge / toilet convenience.



I'm possibly going to the music box on saturday night for a bit of Mr Scruff but that wont be till quite late. (So there was probably no point saying that...)



Do the Uni crew know how to get down here? Its only 15mins walk or a 2min bus journey. Its only just down from Glass, Revolution and all the other painfully mulleted bars in fallowfield.
