Posted:Taneli, welcome.
The 14th is okay too. And after that we will plan other meetings which Thomas and others can join as well. What place on the beach will be best? A place that everyone regognizes and is close to the tram.

Does everyone agree with saturday the 14th on a nice place on the beach of The Hague??? (all scream YES)

Boboooooooo!!! * GLOMP * So is that post from before or after we talked yesterday...? Would Doro be willing to drive all the way out to the coast? You could also drive to utrecht, park the car at Mot's, and then we can get a train to Scheveningen together along with whoever else is coming from Utrecht.... keep us posted on developments anyway!

Posted:Still possible, Doro's waiting to hear back from the club her and her bf are trying to rent out for a party - don't know yet. I'll ask about the coast - I don't know how much longer it would take to get there? Maybe even possible that we could drive you two to the coast too? Or how much would the train cost?

There's the current developments wink

However I like the vondelpark idea, I was planning on coming to A'dam at queensday anyway.

ps could someone tell me what the rules on fire spinning are here in the Netherlands. I usually do it in a park near my place where hardly anybody comes.. sneaky huh ubblol

Posted:I intend to have a killer hangover on Queensday, so nope biggrin



No, actually, I will be the sad person stuck behind her computer on Saturday desparately trying to finish an essay on time... frown (with a killer hangover) but if by some miracle I manage to get everything done before then I'll be there!



Taneli: you're allowed to spin fire in parks, squares, and anywhere with no buildings close by, but if you want to go busking in areas with buildings you have to get a license for non-amplified music (apparently that's what is falls under...) from the gemeente, and you have to have a chat with the fire brigade about regulations, i.e. you have to be x meters away from any building, have a fire blanket with you, that kind of thing.

Either that, or you open your eyes wide, look innocent, and say "I'm sorry officer, i had no idea this wasn't allowed! it won't happen again, i promise! And might I just comment that that's a lovely hat you're wearing!" biggrin

Anyways, i don't think any of us have ever had any problems: we got asked to stop once last summer when it was really dry and there was an open fire ban, but that's all.



Bobo, I think Scheveningen is only about an hour further by car, but I thought Doro might want a break from driving by the time you hit Utrecht, and she might want a drink on the beach... But we'd also be happy to jump in the car with you - or just meet you in Scheveningen if Utrecht is a serious detour for you. The train would be 10 euros each for a return ticket because I have a student-scum card that gives us all a 40% discount smile

Posted:vondelpark, queensday...
the city has special rules for this park on this day....
the park only opens in the morning (usually it's open all night) and then they will only let children in to sell and do stuff. there will be adults doing stuff later in the day, but THE WHOLE PARK will be filled with people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
no chance in hell you'll be able to spin before 18:00 in the evening.
after that I think the police might be a bit jumpy when it comes to fire, because most people who are still out on the street by that time seem to be very very drunk...

I will be in Amsterdam all day, trying to buy toys n stuff, so let me know if you guys really want to meet up somewhere, I might come over to meet you.

Posted:The 14th. That day is set. That's the final plan. So i will all, excepted Kim, meet you at the beach. I will have to work that day up till nine. But My work is close to the beach so I will arrive about ten minutes past nine.
But the beach is very long! what is the exact place we will meet? That's a bit hard for me, I guess other Hagenaars will have to answer that question.

Wheee, just got the final word from the sis that we can goooo! So, I'm there! Just gotta chat a bit to Mot and Neph for deeetails. I'm really excited! I'll be my first... international poi meet (just used to be me and a bunch of friends, really!) So, I'll probably be quite intimidated, and a bit shy too! redface

Posted:Damn, this thread is huge!!!

Ok, so I'm going to be in Amsterdam (from the states) from Sept. 12-19th. If I were to want to meet you with any of you lovely during that time, should I start a new thread, or do I have to wade through all the other stuff going on here to keep up?

Will there be any cool music festival or such the weekend of Sept 17 & 18, or does anyone know of sites I could find such info on?

Thankies! hug
