Posted:Hey Boyz and Girlz...

I am back in Holland and I am happy to read all that you have done in Amsterdam and Utrecht.

Regarding the English mans letter,

Fire Poi are not allowed by Law on the aircraft however most fire-twirlers that i have met do fly with their gear.

1)clean your gear (there are many ways to do so one of them is to use white spirit to wash away the kerosine smell and then wait and let the white spirit evaporate a couple of days and after wash the remains with water, if you dont have patience then just leave your gear out side and clean it with only water)
2) cover it well with plastic bags for the smell and stick it in your bag
3)make sure you send it with your luggage and not to take it as hand luggage.
4)hope for the best expect the worse.....

I have been lucky so far flying with my staff's and poi from Australia to NZ, US, EU, Israel and back to EU......

if anyone asks what is it, you just tell the truth, its your juggling tools.

Now that i am back in Holland I will try to follow this thread so i can finaly the dutch crew and spin together.

Posted:Well, I told him it is legal, because it is!

What isn't legal, is to bring lampoil, you cant bring stuff that can be set alight! But what are you gonna do with poi, strangle people with your chain?

Well, that's what the security at Schiphol told me anyway (i was asked what was the deal with my staf, I was allowd to take in with me as handluggage, but to avoid a lotta bullshit I did in fact paced it with my luggage the next time i flew

This guy practise poi, I don't think he schould have any problems. Terrorist won't be interrested in The Netherlands anyways.

I'm not gonna worry, and nobody should :-)

p.s. Did anyone even notice that the Vondelpark has changed :-)z
There a lot more trees than before!

Posted:heya! punkskull I guess you missed the numerous postes about the MWJ@R-meet that is going to happen on the 17-18 december. As the MWJ@R-meet is the end result of the question raised to make a VBM for the HoP community, so I'm expecting all the people from the dutch HoP thread to show up there.



Check out www.midwinterjongleren.tk for more information.

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Posted:hehe sorry Nove,.. but we have thought about you. And an english site is in the make and will most likely be up in the air after this weekend.

Not that it should matter that you cant read it,.. You'll want to come anyway :-) The Dutch site is actually also still under construction (so next time you check be sure to flush your browser cache).

For those that have already put their reservation down (about 10 people so far): I want to send reservation confirmation emails once a week. Your confirmation will be send after I make the last (major) adjustments to the site so that I can tell you in the mail to revisit the website.

p.s. Hey! Here's some good advice: Don't go out playing paintbaal when it had rained like a hounddog the day, and everything you walk on had changed into deep, Dutch mud. Unless you wanna feel a real commando, who was promised a staion at the bahama's but was mistakingly send to Muddy Syberia. But hey, it'a all good sunny
