So i'll probably won't be there... Allready have to do some extra dancing practise as well in the evenings because i'm asked to dance on an Afgan wedding which is quit an honor, considering that a bellydancer is traditional on middle eastern weddings.

2nd of April i won't be there either, damn...

Posted:Hey Gayle, I think there is some uncertainty around your visit here smile
Are you here from 14 till 15 march, or from 14 till 22 march? That last one would certainly be more convenient!!

Posted:I don't think we should meet on Monday then if Thomas can't make it for most of the evening - he's one of the only native Amsterdammers we have here, I wouldn't have a clue where to go outside of the tourist areas smile And pOp, where are you when you're needed? I thought you lived in this thread!?!? Unless, of course, Gayle would like to come and see lovely Utrecht? (and save us travelling to Amsterdam, heheheheheh)

So, how's next Wednesday for everyone? I could be in Amsterdam or Utrecht or wherever in the afternoon and stick around for a few hours, - just not too late because of aforementioned exams.... and i think Mot can make it during the day on Wednesday as well (but have to check that with him) or on Monday - but then we'd have to do without Thomas in the evening. Complicated...

And on a completely different subject, did anyone notice that Nucleonfrom Eindhoven has very subtly sneaked into this thread without actually telling anyone he was new? welcome Nucleon!

Posted:as a guide through the city we can always rely on Nephtys (& Mot if he is there). And depending on the size of the meet and the weather -> If there are many people we could go to a a park (I've heard the whilhelmina park was quite nice) and when it's less busy, maybe ... ubbangel wink

Posted:*hops in on a pogo stick he "borrowed" from gidg while she's in Oz...

wave hello!!!

well, ehrm, I'm keeping wisely out of this thing... last foreign visit I was supposed to be the guide, got all worked up, made some shiny blue flags to play in the snow with, got my bag loaded with all my gear and went to pick up the guest to take to Utrecht.
I found the guest, but we never made it to Utrecht because of some miscommunication between guest and some unnamed utrecht host wink, and to top everything off: I lost my favourite necklace that my dad had made for my mom in the 60s that day...

or maybe it's because I won't be there!!!!! ubblol
if everything goes right, and the prices drop on the last day like I expect them to, I will be on my way to sunny mexico this sunday...

Gayle: to get to Utrecht from amsterdam is real easy. there are trains leaving about every 10 minutes from the central station. a return ticket will cost you 11,40 euro. in the main hall of the Utrecht station is a big Burger King, where we tend to meet up. if you have time and are bored with amsterdam (not very likely) you might wanna go early to utrecht because it's lovely to see: it even has some special canals in a different style to those in amsterdam.
if you need any tips on what to do in amsterdam, let me know: I am the uber-resident here...
if by any weird chance I won't be in mexico, I will be happy to guide you and your fella through our capital...

and now.... Back to work!

Posted:High guys,

Is there anybody who can tell me where I can find a poi store in Amsterdam. I' been there before. This friday I'd like to go there again, but I' forgot the exact way to this store from Ams Centraal. I' know Joe's vliegerwinkel, but there must be another one isn't it?

Posted:there is.
from central station, walk to the dam, then continu forward to the next big plein and go there left (lange doelenstraat). walk on till you see a nice looking hang-bridge-thingie... go over the bridge and walk about 10 meters till you see the Juggle-store on your left (next to a smartshop, recognizable by the mushroom wink )


anyhow, I got this burning question (but forgot to ask earlier)... those sock-poi some of you guys were using last saturday at motsplace (striped socks)... were can I buy those socks? i cant find socks that long anywhere :S

Posted:There are about three different locations to play in Haarlem the 28th, i'm free that week so i can come and play.

Time won't be a problem either, but assuming most of you have work/educations to go to, let's start the meet around 17:00 or later/earlier. I'll arrange some vegi/veganfood as well...

If neccesairy people can stay for the night in my house and i'll try to get us some live music! (percussion players and maybe a didge or something)

There is an optional meet date on the 13th as well!
Drumcircle with dancers,jugglers, two fires, in & outdoor area at Huize Amstelrust: Amsteldijk 319 starting from 12:00...

And for an encore, when the hell is friday the 28th? Are we talking about good friday (25th), easter monday (28th) or are we talking more than two months from now? I'm available both days, and I'm dying to spin.
Other than that, I'll try and make it the 2nd of april, but I'm not to sure I'll be able to.


No, I didn't mess up, I intended to catch fire.

Posted:Anonomatos: there's a stall on the market on the Vredenburg in Utrecht that sells those socks (Wednesday, Friday & Saturday) though there are probably other places you can get them...

Moondance: meh, i can't make it to Ruigoord either, must study and missing an entire night's sleep isn't good for studying prospects the next day, either :-( But have a fantastic birthday celebration!!

Next Wednesday: how about we meet in front of the Burger King at 3? Gayle & man: Urtecht really is a lovely place just to have a wander around and I'm happy to escort you if you want to come earlier to admire it :-) We also lay claim to Holland's oldest coffee shop (so does another town, but they're liars, liars I tell you!! biggrin) if you want to see a place of historical interest.

As to getting back to Amsterdam: there's normal trains that will get you there in half an hour 4 times per hour until about midnight, and after that there's trains every hour, but I think they take a lot longer - either way you won't get stuck here!
