Posted:So it's another Manchester convention, very likely to be much the same as all the previous ones..
10am-7pm at Chorlton Leisure Centre, 7pm-erm, sometime later at St. Ninian's Church Hall.

General juggle weavesmiley ubbloco hug (where's the hoop graemlin??) fun during the day, evening is pub quiz/silliness/renegade (if we get any acts).

Probably going to be 6, it always has been before, but since we've not had an organisers' meeting yet that might change.

PM/ask here if there's anything else you want to know...

Take your own to the church hall, they're fine with that ...
..And it's a MJC convention tradition to buy one for everyone anyway...

One day, but crash space can be sorted for those who need it.

In the evening, yes, no problem. Not so sure about the leisure centre though.. Oh, no, hang on, I've just thought of the perfect place for it where it'll be right out of the way... (But there's only space for one bike there really, so don't nobody else go thinking of not bringing locks if they're pedalling.)

Why thank'ee, we like to think so too.

Had a 2-minute convention meeting at Bristol last weekend, at which we had just enough time to say "hmm.. we need to have a meeting" and "yes, it will be 6 again" (no concessions, sorry, we're non-profit and the hall is the same amount whoever turns up...)

Posted:By "details" you mean fun and sillines? sounds fine if so!

Are there kind of workshops and stuff, or is it like an extended gasworks-type meet in the day? I'm dead keen to learn some new tricks and wondering if this is somewhere I might get to do that!

As always, anyone who wants to run a workshop is perfectly welcome to stand up and shout "{whatever} workshop starting now just here!!". We don't have any planned in advance tho, so it could well be that none officially happen...

But everyone's friendly, you just gotta ask folk to teach you and they usually will...

Posted:Don't be nervous!

It'll just be a load of overfriendly juggers/poisters/weirdos in a hall together doing lots of juggly/spinny/weird stuff.

Everyone is always really friendly at conventions, don't be afraid to go up and chat.

You might also be interested in this...


regular(ish) Manchester spinning meets

looking forwards to meeting you! biggrin Have fun!

Posted:We had a convention meeting last night (it had to happen eventually; we might be very slack about it, but it doesn't actually all sort itself out..) and everything's in place now for Saturday. All the usual convention madness, keeping the games short and sweet so nobody whinges about how long they go on for, keeping the pub quiz short and sweet for similar reasons... See y'all Saturday bounce2 bounce bounce2 bounce bounce2
