Posted:juggle weavesmiley Manchester Spinners Meet up and stuff weavesmiley juggle



Hi all If you are looking for people to spin poi with in the North west this is the place to be.



For any one new to this sight DONT READ THE WHOLE THREAD it has been going a long time and contains lots of old information and chat about previous meet ups and organisation stuff just go to the last few posts to find out the most up-to-date information on current events.



First a bit of info the Manchester spinners lot is no professional spinning troop or organised events it is just a group of people who get together to enjoy themselves. The first meet up was organised way beck in September 04 http://delizium.fotopic.net/c291964.html
br>
The crowd has changed a bit from back then but we have kept a few old timers we welcome all along to come and join us for a spin whether you be experienced or a complete beginner we are willing to teach and learn from you.



Their is no set time for the meet ups they are usually organised around when people can make it and how long they can stay.



I will try to update this first post as often as I can with the most up-to-date info on meet ups and club nights that allow spinning but if I'm being a bit lax just find the last few posts foe up-to-date info (like I said before werent you paying attention)



To date the standard meets have gone as meet up in Piccadilly gardens at 4pm (nice central point where every one can get to) Then move on down to the Gas Works/CastleField or Plat fields Park depending on the wether till everyone gets to cold/tired/burned then on to the pub

( anybody who doesnt know where this is it can be arranged for someone to come meet you at the train station or wherever you are coming from .) smile

{ ubblove We are a nice bunch like that ubblove}



Accommodation for a night can usually be arranged but you need to sort this well in advance no just turning up expecting somewhere to sleep eek





(more to be added and all to be spell checked soon)



pm me any info you would like to add



before i met those lot i thought they'd be a bunch of dreadlocked hippies that smoked, set things on fire ,and drank a lot of tea but then when i met them....oh wait (PyroWill)

Posted:heya guys !

I was thinking, how round manchester the, home design store sellls juggling equipment at a very hight price and all the stuff in afflecs are pretty bad quality.

Soo

Im thinking of opening my own stall at the Student Market in manchester (every truesday) selling juggling equipment, various types of poi and diabolos. I hope to sell these at a relatiovely low price too since im buying in bulk.

Just wondering what your thoughts are about this, and if you think i would have enough passing trade for it to be a success.


thanks

Posted:Bloody great weekend...

No no juggling whatsoever and probably never will (I'm a firm believer in 'if you can't do something right, don't do it at all') instead gonna focus on poi, doubles and CJ which I managed to get the basics of this weekend...

Yes Will that was an annoyingly brief fleeting visit from yourself there....

Posted:the 14th? Thats the day after my show! I will be still too drunk to drive, and going to a barbeque. So i'm out, even if I also like a bit of Willy, and actually being able to talk to Ed when he's not so f**ked, a la Cornwall.
