Posted:I think the Vondelpark will be where I spin. Apparently, it's quite close to the house I'm staying in.

Y'see I'm organising a reunion over that weekend for some of the people I met when I was travelling, so I have to be in Amsterdam.

What do you guys use for fuel? And is it easy to get?

Posted:Heya,

the performance was nice <<wouldn't use the word great though tongue>>... It was a shame there was no music for us, and the space was limited, but the crowd was nice, cheering at my fireballs and other nice tricks from everyone smile! And we had a wonderfull evening besides the performance (huh Fuero wink)

Posted:Lampenolie (in Dutch) Lampoil, its available at pharmacy's like kruidvat and trekpleister or at bigger shops like Albert Heijn or Konmar. I hope you know enough. I think it's called parafin in English.

Posted:Hi Firepois,

huuu nice, always interesting to have international guests smile, you are more than welcome at a nice fire-meeting! And I never poid in the vondelpark before, so double fun for me :-)...
I believe Mot knows a few fire-spinners in Amsterdam, I'll give him a call to see if he knows anything about the scene in Amsterdam...

Fuel is no problem, we use lampoil (liquid parrafin), and it is for sale in every supermarket, otherwise pharmacies... Konmar has the lowest prices if I'm not mistaking...

Btw, I'm not available on saturday 27, so I vote Friday 26??? Free travelling for me and Fuero as well...

Looking forward to it!

It's so funny to see that different fire-twirlers use different fuel. I learned to twirl in Australia, and I always used Kerosine. Couldn't believe you could buy that at a supermarket!! When I got back in Holland and tried to get that stuff, everybody laughed at me and asked where my airplane was stationed..
Twirling in the Vondelpark sounds awesome. I might change my mind by that time, cause it might be f*cking freezing by then.. but otherwise, it's fine by me!!

Posted:smile ahh well, it's all just a matter of preference... Kerosine will do the trick as well, a little brighter but burns a little shorter... No wait, I am mixing up with white gas, sorry smile... Ah well, it is easyer for me to carry just one fuel, and lampoil is the least harmfull for firebreathing... And I think the fumes will be slightly healthyer as well??

Anyhow, if you poi hard enough <<with gloves???>> you will get warm soon enough smile, so nice to have you there as well wink! Lets try to make it a huge meeting, would be fun! the first www.poiiInHetVondelpark.nl meeting :-)?!

Posted:Wow! You guys are all so friendly, thanks! Tis exactly what I need just now hug

Alrighty then, well, I'll leave it up to you, either Friday or Saturday night Nov 26/27. As I said, I'm meeting some friends in Amsterdam as part of a reunion, but I'm sure they can come along too, or maybe I'll meet them after...
I might even be able to persuade my friend to bring his drum!!

Is there anywhere in particular in the Vondelpark we should meet - or will it be pretty obvious?!! Anyways, I'll message you with my Dutch friend's mobile number closer to the time...

Take care and see you all soon

Posted:Yup, Mot & I will be in Rotterdam, who else? I have an assignment for anyone coming who owns a thermos: bring hot chocolate with a splash of rum!! It should help get us through the cold times... I'll be bringing some but if the group gets too big it won't be enough....

And Amsterdam on the 26th/27th sounds great! Not sure what Mot's weekend looks like work-wise though so can't speak for him. I suggest we meet in front of the film museum in the Vondelpark because it's huge (the park I mean, not the museum)... but if anyone else knows any good landmarks I'm open to suggestions. Hot chocolate & rum assignment stands for this session too smile

Posted:Seems like it will be a small group in rotterdam. Yvonne is coming and a guy from the omniaforum he's quite good and you two. i can bring some hot chocolat, don't know if we got any rum. Don't know if i want any rum. rolleyes

Shall we meet in the evening, so we can light some fire here in Rotterdam? How's about 19:00 at Rotterdam Alexander station? There's a big square next to the station so we can burn things safely there. And if we get bored we can always go away and shoot some pool.



Let me know,

Greetz,

Fuero



woops, i just saw that I said 13:00 at Rotterdam Alexander on motsplace, I think that's a better time.

So it's 13:00 at Rotterdam Alexander near the shopping mall and it's koopzondag so we're going to entertain/irritate some people. wink See you sunday.....

And about 26th; are there any other people that would like to have dinner in Amsterdam or am I alone on that one? In that case we could ofcourse meet later as well... <Btw Fuero, will you take your omnia-friends with you then? Don't know if you would like to start a Rotterdam poi-department or that it was just for once...>

Posted:Rotterdammers are far to sober for poi. I have to import poiers from other city's ubblol . Well 't was nice yesterday though there we're only three of us. Mot and Nephtys didn't make it. So no hot chocolat with rum for us.

About the 26th: I would love to have dinner in Amsterdam the 26th. I was planning to go to Amsterdam early so I could go to the Jugglestore. There's a good Irishpub on the Leidseplein and that's near the Vondelpark. I'll notify the Omnia-guys. There are a few living near A'dam and the Vondelpark so i think we're gonna see a few of them. Well i'll see you later.

Greetz,

Posted:Hey there lads,

This is going to be great biggrin

The only thing is... I'm meeting my friends in the Kashmir Lounge between 6pm-9pm on the Friday night... I don't know if that's near the Vondelpark or not?!

Anyways, let me know what you think... I could meet you afterwards somewhere, or we could meet on the Saturday night instead, or maybe you guys would like to come to the Kashmir Lounge too and we could head from there?! I'm sorry if this all sounds ridiculous to you, I've never been to Amsterdam before, so I don't know if it's impossible biggrin

Either way, am looking forward to seeing you guys

Take care
Clare xo

PS: and I'm working on greg and his drum ubblol

Maybe we could arrange meeting there?

Posted:Hi! Well, meeting at that lounge seems ok then. I don't know what time I'm gonna be there though, cause I have to work and won't be able to be in Amsterdam before 19.00 (and that's going straight from work). I hope I can meet up with Telpeva or Foxy or someone else from The Hague already in The Hague. Cause if I have to go and try to find that lounge on my own... I don't know if I'll even go then. Anyway.. hope this will work out.. no meetings before the 26th in The Hague - Spuiplein??

Posted:Well Kim,
I know we never met, but I have to work the 26th also and I also be like 19:00 in A'dam. So maybe we can meet up and both go to A'dam. So then we can both be lost in A'dam. No I've looked it up and I'm reasonably know in A'dam so I think I know where we can go. If you want to meet before the 26th let me know, then we can meet before going to Amsterdam. I'm always up for some juggling.
Greetz,

Posted:Hey people!

the meeting Is going to be quite huge ubbangel angel2...
Some old friends are coming also btw: I contacted Carobananas, and she and Sabrina are probably coming & Michiel from the spuiplein meeting...
Only from the Utrecht group I haven't heard anything till so far...

I think there will be two groups leaving from the Hague, one early <dinner> and one later on <no dinner>...
If you can make it 19.00 o'clock, that would be exactly in time for dinner I think <<would that be possible in the Kashmir Lounge?>>

What time were you planning to go to the juggling shop Fuero? Cuz it will prolly be closed by 7 o clock?! Or is it koopavond on friday in Amsterdam?
