Well. That's because the poi-community in NL exist of:
-People that are too busy to even look on this forum.
-People that are too lazy to even look on this forum.
-People that are too crazy to even look on this forum.

There should be an Utrecht-meet pretty soon (weather is not that bad) but we'll prolly end up with just a few peepz, but that's ok.

PM me your number (if your okay with that) so I can contact you if there's something in Utrecht going on.

@ALL: Sunday 24th of august there will be the "In Vervoering" festival in the Lepelenburg park. THE best excuse to bring your juggly stuff :-) official meet will be posted later on.

Posted:Hoi Nephties,

I was just wondering,.. does the cheep cost of an Ameland kampeerboerderij weigh up against the extra cost of having to pay (especially if coming by car) the ferry trip?

Posted:Yay for the enthusiasm! Sorry peeps, I'm one of the crazy busy people, though the busy-ness should subside soon, and then I'll really start putting serious time into this - but i'll open a separate thread for it ASAP.

Marco, actually I'm sure similar locations have similar prices all around The Netherlands, I was looking at the Wadden because I think it's really beautiful there. The ferry without a car is only 11 euros return, but with a car it would become a whole lot more expensive... which begs the question, is a car necessary? smile

But either way, the Wadden are quite a long way off from most places, and this is absolutely a democratic event so if people would prefer to go elsewhere please do shout out! My only requirement is pretty surroundings smile

Posted:Beutifull location sounds wonderful!

As for if a car is necesary,.. i think it depends a lot on what kind of event you have in mind of putting together. If people wish to come and bring (or expect) stuff like anonomatos
"I've got some cool ideas with junkyard installations and fire-theater-acts... anyone in for some crazy Robodock / Burning Man'ish things?"
then I'm actually expecting a couple of trucks to arrive and volunteers bevorehand to put it all together.
Would rock for sure :-p

But you are right in that a car is only nesecary for those involved in organising or wanting to bring more then their juggling equipment and sleeping gear.

Posted:Sounds like fun Nephtys ! weavesmiley

It would be nice if it is a little bit more central in the country instead of the wadden...
What kind of location do you have in mind? Scouting huts are not that expensive and there are lots of them!

When do you want to organise the weekend?

Thnx, would like to come to Utrecht to do some poi stuff and meet some of y'all weavesmiley
Check your inbox for my PM.

Never heard of In Vervoering Festival...
Just checked out the website (thank god there's google),
looks like fun! However, I'm kinda broke right now, so I'm probably gonna have to wait untill this other Utrecht-meet.

Posted:hello y'all..
yes, sorry sorry.. I guess we are all guilty for not replying too much in this thread anymore, but I still have it send all the new posts to my inbox, so I am up to date.
if this big meet will happen, please plan it a bit in advance.
most of the meets I seem to miss because it is too last minute planning for me, and then on a weekend evening I can't cancel work anymore.
but give me notice in advance and I will be there.
a nice sunny afternoon in Utrecht seems like a sound plan too, but we need to find a better place to eat at, because that snackbar from the last time I attended still makes my stomach turn just by the thought of it..

oh, I sometimes get PM's about the dutch spinners list (thread), but I think I already announced 2 years ago that it was too much for me to update.
if somebody wants to give me an updated list with all the names, cities, HoP-links and website-links, then I will put it in the format of a thread and post it in that first message again

Sorry, I suppose I am one of those people; busy, lazy and crazy smile
It's at least half a year ago that I checked this tread... And my poi are a bit dusty also. Time to hang the lamp in my livingroom a bit higher en start practising again.

I would love to come to the weekend! Especially when it's in a nice area. But... most of my weekends are already 'booked' (with going to nice places and meeting with cool people). So I can't garantee that I will come.

or
-4th october

I say lepelenburg-park utrecht, there's always place to shelter. I'll be stalking some utrecht peepz soon. Hope something turns out!

Anyone in?

Gather 'round, gather 'round!

The weather forecast looks promising (18 graden, zonnig)!

Posted:So I come here looking for someone to help me to learn some new tricks because I need to put up a fire poi performance in a bellydance show.
And here I find that there's a meeting this weekend! I can't come on sunday, but hope I can on saturday (school's a bitch). Utrecht would be great, but where do we meet? Because I have no idea where lepelenburg is.

And if I can't come to the meeting: Is there anyone near Arnhem/Nijmegen who can give some tips and tricks? I've been spinning for a few years, but my technique is noooob!

Posted:Saturday 27th meeting:

We meet 16:00h @ lepelenburg.

I heard some might be a little earlier (but still have a hard time getting definitive reactions), but I've got some work to do earlier in the afternoon on saturday so I'LL be there from 16h onwards.

If you don't know where it is, take the bus to the Schouwburg (don't be afraid to ask) and walk to the right (opposite of the Schouwburg-building) alongside the water. Follow that and you'll see a small circus-like tent thingy. That's the place to be :-)

PM me for my phone number if you think you need that. I'll be checking regularly.

So Neph, how about the (Ameland)Juggling-Weekend-Off?
I can use a spin, to keep me from freezing!
