Posted:3PM... Don't know if I'm going to make that, but I just might skip college for (another :s) day...

Anyhow, I wanted to give all the Real jugglers here (the kind with those flying balls you know (so not including me ^_^ )) a tip; the Leen Bakker has "LED Motion Balls" for sale this week. they look like glowballs (http://www.neonhusky.com/Images/J-Glowballs1-sm.jpg), but they have a small round disc (diameter 3 cm?) from an other material which contains the switch etc...
But they are bright enough to juggle in dark, and cost you something like 4,75 with coupon, 6,85 without coupon...

Posted:Hey all you kids who are arriving later on Wednesday: the weather is supposed to be pretty decent and spring-y, so we're planning to head for the Lepelenburg park in Utrecht (in stead of wussing out and hiding indoors at Mot's place).

See ya!

Posted:Nah, no problem Stickman: i can handle the visitors! And I have Mot to come and protect me and look threatening in case they turn out to be anacondas in real life or something (though if they are i am really impressed with their typing skills ... they must have voice recognition software...) biggrin I reckon we'll be at the Lepelenburg at around 3:30.

See ya!

Posted:easter... the 28th was mentioned, but since then it has been quiet about it...
Zaanse Jongleerdag... Hmmmz, intewesting ^_^... I'll get back on that later, forgot my agenda...

Lepelenburg park... I have been there before, but I really have no idea anymore how to get there... Anyhow, I will arrive at the station around 4 o clock, so I will wonder through the streets asking for directions, and if that doesn't work I'll give a ring to one of our locals :-)

And making it late? I don't see a problem in that, we might play a little bit with diabolo's again, that was fun last time smile.

Think i'll be asleep pretty early tonight....Anyways, thanks to Eric for being a faboulous tour guide and to Nephtys for being a truely superb pizza menu interpreteur!just hope we weren't too anaconda like!!!

Great to meet all you guys and in the words of a great spinner: "it's darker than you think!"

Posted:hmmm, seems like we had the sunniest day last wednesday!!!!!
gayle will send me pictures over email, I'll send them on to those concerned...

but another thing:
the sister of a friend of mine is getting married this thursday, and she asked me to do some fire as a background thing there. it's indoor and the whole thing will last about 2 hours (it's a big hall and fire is allowed inside). now I thought of just throwing it in the group here: so if anybody wants to do it there with me, eat some cake, and don't get payed anything. then we'll just make it into a next dutch HoP-meet ????
talking about that: when was the next scheduled meet again, everything about this is just a blur to me right now, too many dates floating around.

anyway, let me know if you want to come, hang out, spin some fire this thursday? (4PM) afterwards we'll go to the park, have some falafel, or some more cake, and end up at either the dance night in paradiso, or the 80s night in melkweg (or straight to bed)...

Posted:ok, so the next meet is kind of vague.. I see question-marks all around.
and all the dates are kinda weird as well, so let me make a list with fridays as reference points:

friday march 25th
friday april .1st
friday april .8th
friday april 15th
friday april 22nd
friday april 29th

so the days in that quote were right, but still it's vague when people are showing up. as far as I know both dates were only suggestions from Thomas and nobody has reacted with a yes to any of them. come to think of it, people have been a bit lazy here recently anyway: I don't recall any certain yes-ses for when gayle was here, and for those who weren't there: it was a beautyfull day!
now we don't have to meet on a friday, but experience has showed that most people are able to come on a friday and now at least it's easier to see when the weekends start. so people c'mon, let's hear some suggestions. and answers as well.

oh, and it is not MY sister who's getting married, but the sister of a good friend of mine.
