"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Posted:Hey there Hakkai, what's up and welcome!

Eeeer...since I don't have school, when's your guys' autumn-break? If all goes, I should be alble to make it to both meets. How about the The Hague-meet just after your break, and the Utrecht -meet the week after? Also, it might be a plan to have both meets in one weekend, on the count of your break...you know, I'm hust spitballin' but I might be a plan!

Also friday...meaning the 14th if I'm correct sounds good, though still, as I mentioned before, it's gonna be difficult because I gotta work and after that travel, so I will be late, say 6/7 'o clock? Maybe later. And that isn't quite the problem, but I don't know my way around in Utrecht. If it was in Haarlem it would be different, but this one is tricky. Anyway, my whole point is...I'd rather have a meet Saturday (If it's not in Amsterdam, or some other city where I know my way around)

Posted:Heeeyy guys, wassup?
How's about we do a Nijmegen-meet first so Nove's host-parents can see we're really all quite harmless and then she might be allowed to come to other meets as well? Mebbe next Sunday, the 16th, 15:00 at Nijmegen station?

Posted:A meet in The hague would definately be a go-go. Maybe we can do a zuiderpark meet? If the weather is shitty we can stay at my place (which is a 15 minute walk from the zuiderpark)...

Maybe the autumn vacation is a good idea... but when is that actually for normal people? (As in: non-university people ;-p )

So... any clear plans for the next few meets? Utrecht, The Hague, Amsterdam... all good to me... cuz i have a burning desire to play with fire! :-D

Posted:But... but.... people, Nove, exchange poi spinner from Canada and veteran of these boards is stuck in Wijchen near Nijmegen until we hold a meet there so her host parents can see we don't eat cute fluffy things for breakfast! Can't we hold a meet in Nijmegen first, so she can come to other meets as well after that? On Sunday (16th) afternoon or sumfin?

Posted:Sorry about the temporary absence... My laptop was down for the count and needed to be repaired. But I'm back now!

Anyway-- if not the 16th, when? Saturday might work, but it's really short notice and I'm going to France on the 17th until the 22nd (with the hostfamily) but I'm available the weekend after that... So you guys could plan something for this one without me.

My chains and fire heads got stolen last weekend, too, so I may have to borrow someone else's (otherwise all I have are flags), unless I order some before that or manage to find a place here where I can buy the material to make 'em... I miss my fire poi. Sigh.

Just my two (euro) cents.

Oh, and Neph! hug for thinking about me! biggrin kiss

Posted:hey nove..

sorry to hear about your fire poi.. in nijmegen i wouldnt know of a juggling shop or something that sells kevlar, but for chains and screws and stuff you could go to gamma. its a massive hardware store practically in every city. so probly nijmegen too.
kevlar you can get, as far as i know, either in amsterdam or utrecht.. utrecht is probly closer for you. its on the nachtegaalstraat, just ask around.. its one of the main streets running through utrecht, and its called H.D. van der Meijden, and has boardgames and stuff in the window. for amsterdam you could better ask the a'dam crowd like thomasfire or pOp

good luck!!

Posted:Hi Nove,

You can try http://www.circuswinkel.nl/circusartikelen/index.html
in Nijmegen.
www.luchtwerk.nl is in Rotterdam, but they have got kevlar for sure. Maybe you can go to the juggleday Sunday 23rd october in Deurne. I expect Luchtwerk will be there. Ask them to be sure.

Posted:psstt... you guys are not supposed to know yet since it is not yet completely 100% sure that it's going to happen. But plans and talk are now getting to a point that if it's not going to happen there and then, then it wont happen at all untill somewhere in spring with nicer weather. Since I want you all to come i'm already leaking the date to you to put in your agenda's and plan for your attendance.



Sooo... what's this all about?



Well remember the idea about a vbm (verry big meet) from a couple of pages back on this forum? That idea did not just dissapear in the dark corners of the thread. Some guys picked it up (Tom, Telpeva, Fuero and me) and are trying to make it happen.



The ideas we have floating around are going to make a kick ass relaxed HoP meet wich you don't want to miss.

If it is (and it is increasingly looking that it will) going to happen then it'll be the evening/night and morning of 17-18 december.

Please keep that date open to come to this event!



It will be indoors with a really cozy lounge and sitting area with entertainment from your spinning and juggling friends. It will be in a really big shed (so pleanty of space to juggle) but the sitting area will be made in such a way that you don't notice the shed at all.

There is space outside the shed to spin your favorite firetoys (and since it is middle of winter by then,.. you can come back inside to warm yourself bevore you dip your poi in the lampoil for a second run).

Ofcourse blacklight will be present for the UV and glow in the dark freaks (like me).



Will you come to the vbm?

Posted:Ow! I like the sound of this vbm! I surely will be present....and since not everybody knows where it's gonna be, I might be handy to name a place. If I know the right adress I could make a map for people not used to the area, and link it to the forum.

About the 16th, well, that's a no-go for me, a birthday it interfearing this plan. I won't coem to Nijmegen anyway, it;s to far to be <rendabel> since I don't have a car and no OV. Sory about that. Eeerr...after you guys've gone to Nijmegen a meet then? Let's say the 2th1 of 22th? I plaid for Utrecht :-)

Anwways, I really wish alloya A bunch of fun in Nijmegen and try to convince Nove's exchange-parents that we're not the same hippies of 40 years ago :-) And that we're not evil :-) So once again, good luck and lot's of fun!

And and Nove, if you might be in Amsterdam for some reason and decide to buy Kevlar, the place to be is the Juggle Store!

http://www.juggle-store.com/
juggle

Theu are located best to the Waterlooplein, in the Staalstraat number 3. But there's a route on the site leading you to the store form the Central Station.
And and and...beware of the opening times! They ight be closed on the most anoying times! Anyway, good luck building new poi!

hope to hear from you soon,
The Guy....

Posted:Tzabi! I live in Den Haag and up for a small meet (welcoming foreigners is a good thing wink )... altough the locals (telpeva, fuero, etc.) are all kinda busy... there should be some time and day to meet up with a few fella's.



So... when is your plan to meet up? How long are you gonna stay? Good places for fire shows are Spuiplein... and the Zuiderpark is very nice... though the rules for streetperformance are quite simple: if it looks dangerous (fire does :P ) you'll get your butt kicked by the police... though they merely give out warning ("please pack your stuff and leave!").



See ya 'round...
