Posted:Hello

Now with the glorious weather, (lets hope it stays) I am looking to meet people who live or would like to spin in or around Camden. We could share knowledge and have some fun. Hopefully make some new friends. Or if any one knows any groups or anything that would be great thank you!

Posted:Nice one!! smile

I am glad to see so many people willing to spin this sat in Camden!!!

I am really pleased. biggrin

I have asked about places to spin esp. with fire, the general thing that I got from the police and park people is as long as we do it safely, make sure kids and passers by can not get in our way, not do it in dangerous areas, set Camden alight. We should be fine. lets see how many people turn up and we will go to a location based on that, any ideas please let me know!! and thanks to all the peeps at oddballs for letting me put up a poster and giving me ideas and stuff.

I really hope that it wil be fun for all!!!

Posted:OK, 1st spinning meet has taken place! Yay! Only problem? Only me and CmkB showed. Round of applause! wink

We had ourselves a damn good spin though. And Carla's found us an ACE location, it will be quality for making vids in. Can't see a problem with fire either... so, we need to set up the next one when we know a few more people are up for coming.

OK, we could have scheduled it for when the world cup final wasn't on..... but hey, how many spinners do YOU know that rave about football?? Haven't seen a footy thread on here yet. umm

So, bearing that in mind, when is everyone free for the next one? Bwahahaha! biggrin

Posted:Yes, I will... sorry about not showing, but there was fierce competition from the London Rise! festival and whatnot. Didn't think I'd have another chance to see the Wailers live ever again.

Also, (and not that it makes a difference to me personally) it may be easier to get people if it's a day other than sat as there seem to be always loads of things happening.

See you next time!

Generally I can do Friday, Saturday or Sunday, but Saturday is the best day for me. Let me know! We'll see what happens.

That said, trying to organize HoPpers to do anything is like trying to herd cats... wink hug

Any point in me mooching around outside Oddballs from around 4.45 for half an hour, just on the off chance?

I'm expecting to meet up with a few other spinners this evening, I'll see if I can persuade any of them to come along smile

rolleyes

Yeah, I know, I'm lame.... for anyone that doesn't know the place, from Oddballs, cross the main street and take the street directly opposite Oddballs. Follow it down, and round to the right, and you should see a bridge with a small park underneath on the left side. Under the bridge is the place. Have fun!! smile

Posted:I have to say that I was just a teensy little bit miffed about being stood up frown



Never mind, I got over it, it didn't rain and the two of us managed to find a nice, friendly venue, with an enclosed garden space (and a bar) where we could have a little spin and shoot a couple of things for the record. There's a faint chance they may be amenable to future sessions (no fire, though) - I can ask if you like.



Just one suggestion for keeping it going (and I hope it does keep going): Have a set time each week when you declare the spin officially ON or OFF. This is what the organisers of the London street skates do, via their websites. They leave it until around three hours before a skate is due to start before making the call and even if it rains after that, somebody usually goes down to say "No Go" in person.



Best of luck with it. Hope I get to see .......... the spot........ someday smile

Good idea about having an on-off time. It's still in the early stages so we don't really have anyone organising for definite, but that sounds like a really good plan. smile

Carla: Can't make it down tomorrow, have to give a music tech lecture. Next few weeks are fairly busy, but I'll post up when I'm free again. smile
