Posted:WJD in Rotterdam was nice. You could choose for the strong sun or for the more comfy shadow from a building.

The URL about double staff swinging for inspiration is: http://www.dance.net/twirling.html
br>The batons are smaller and rotate very fast. It looks impressive, especially the two batons.

I am thinking of going to the Goa party on the 2nd of July.

Are people going to `Unicycling in the Dutch mountains' next weekend (you should be able to mount an uni without support)? There will be a fire show. I will take my fire pois with me.

Posted:Heya Baar, you posted, cool!
And thnx for the link to the baton spinning, those video's from the congressional cup contests, WOW! They got some mad contact and throw stuff, didn't know contact was a part of baton twirling! And if you get your style from those vids, Show me next time (and if you are able to do an illusion, send me a PM and I will stand next to your door within 2 hours wink)

The link I was talking about is all at a slower pace, slightly easyer to learn from smile, certainly worth to check it out ->

And Mo-seph, I will surely come to visit you when you're here, a doublestaff workshop never harms ^.^

Posted:Question to all:

Next saturday the 25th there's a alternative-music-festival in Woerden called 'K'boem'... I was asked to take care of some jugglers. Telpeva Isil and Fuero will be there but I still need one more person (especially for the evening!). Doesn't matter if it's diabolo, devilsticks, or poi... if you're pretty good at least one discipline it's OK.

Anyone in for some twirling? For the jugglers it's free festival entrance and some free consumptions!

Posted:Hello Stickman and other Dutch-types wave

How are you all?!!

I'd love to come see you again (and try to remain straight enough to remember everyone), but I'm very poor at the minute. But I promise to be back someday smile

Hope you're all having a great summer and spinning like mad things.

However, looks like you're getting a Mo-Seph workshop, which is splendid, as he's amazingly good biggrin

Have fun, take care
Clare x

Posted:ow damn, maybe I'll just look nd listen for the doubles workshop, since I only finished my first halve of the double staffs :s (he's pwetty though cool).

And Firepoise, cool to hear from you again, and I'm sure that if you will come back someday you'll get a warm welcome again!

@ all of you! [especially stickman, firepois and Vanize)

I recieved the videomaterial from THE Vondelpark Meeting, and played a little bit with it. I'm actually not content, but since everybody waited for so long I will put the temporary version online for now. (ow NB, the videomaterial was not always acceptable, hence the sometimes unsharp or faltering images frown.
I'm still uploading now, but you should be able to find it in 15 minutes right

Posted:hey firepoise! nice to hear you enjoyed yourself so much that you want to come back.. and as telp already said, you are more than welcome biggrin

@telp: THATS GREAT NEWS!! im at work right now, so i cant really download it, but tonight.. haha.. at least ill have something to do in wassenaar tonight.. and its cool that youre getting back into staff man.. doubles even! last time i saw you you said you were kind of stuck and giving up on staffing.. if youre getting back into it, i can show you some contact ive been working on lately biggrin.... or something

@mo-seph: i dont know what your plans are, but a saterday (like in about 2-3 weeks) would be excellent, but of course it mainly depends on your schedule.. in principle im available, but weekends are better.. we'll figure something out.

ciao

Posted:Hello me darlings!

My apologies also for long absence - had a LOT of studying to do... 2 more essays and then just my thesis to write before I'm done... scary.....

Clare, lurvely to see you here again!! Tom & myself will be over in Ireland this summer, mainly near Galway but we'll be in Dublin for a couple of days in early August as well - don't know if that's at all travelable for you? But if not: all you need is money for the flight (and with ryanair that's really not that much most of the time!) and we can offer you food and a bed smile

And Telp, nice vid! That was an excellent meet and it's great to have some footage of it - you did an amazing editing job with low-quality material (i mean the film, not the spinning!) biggrin

Rest of yous: is anyone going to either Den Bosch or Woerden tomorrow? Or is anything else happening? I have a friend over from England and he'd love to go to a meet if there is one. if not... who feels like coming to Utrecht tomorrow? Say central station, Burger King, 9-ish? If the weather's ok that is.... forecasts are kinda shitty :-(

Long time no see! Would be nice to see you again, but looking out the window right now (3.41 AM) is not inspiring for a meeting frown *where is that crying smiley again?!*.
Ahh well, I will be in Woerden during the day, and Fuero during the evening, so if anyone is into a mini-meet (like tonight, was fun), just come along!

Greenz,

Posted:stretrave was fuckin awesome!!!!
fireshow wasn't as big as we planned, but still: five peepz, (four of em poiing, one staffing, one whipping (I didn't make snakes, I made a whip of bout a metre), one snaking, and one breathing...), twirling lots offire during half an hour or so...
it only cost us three bottles of lampoil, which I had made a donation pot for, and we got enough money back, so everythings perfect for that matter...

whipping is so fcking great!!! biggrin:D:D

guess I cant be coming tot he meet, gotta clean up the party place round eight... (thats the fcked up thing about being organisation :P)

maybe I'll put some foto's on here if I can find out if/who made some... biggrin:P;)
