Posted:Hi there Nova! And welcome! wave
I'm very glad you enjoy doing poi! Australia is really THE county to get infected with the poi-virus!

And you're right in tme too! Since spring is in the air (still legging a bit in Holland though) the meets will get more frequent. I say, join up sometime so we can all get to know you! You;ll see it's fun!

The park with the strandstoelen would be nice for next week. Guess it's called the wilhelmina-park (near the Schouwburg)..

Posted:Lucas, it's not really that nice here yet (though that could completely change in the course of a few days), I'd bring some warmer clothes just in case: I was wearing my winter coat when we went out for Queensnight yesterday and I was still a bit cold!



Intala, I'd look up how to get there on a routeplanner if I were you, far easier than anyone trying to explain! The street is called lepelenburg as well so it's easy enough to find. There's a little car park right next to it and there's usually space there. If you decide to come by public transport, take bus 3 or 4 in the direction of the Fockema Andrealaan (be sure not to take the other bus 3 or 4, you'll end up on the other side of town!) and get out at the Schouwburg. Standing with your back to the Schouwburg, follow the path on the right side of the canal, and after a little while you'll get to the park. Really it's just a big field, most recognisable feature is a red bandstand.



I haven't actually checked with Mot because he's trying very hard to go back to sleep at the moment smile but I'm pretty sure we'll both be there, especially if the weather's as good as predicted!

At the moment it's only about 8 degrees Celcius over here... frown
The predictions for wednesday are much better though, with 18 degrees and only occasional some rain. But still, I would bring the jacket. smile

Posted:I say we meet in front of the Burger King on Utrecht Central Station @ 14:00h and walk to the park.

For everyone who is later and doesn't know where the park is: from Utrecht Central Station, walk in the direction of the Schouwburg (walk through Catherijne and exit past the V&D, then take a left, and at the Bijenkorf go right). When you reached the Schouwburg, go right (so in the opposite direction of the Schouwburg). Follow that path and somewhere in the distance you'll see some sort of Circus-tent-thingie. There it is!

So. Time to spin!

So you can call me 06-29328066.. also for other peepz who can't find us!



*edit* just checked KNMI site and appears that next wednesday is the least sunny day of the next week. But the weatherforecast seems to be very fluctuating so I hope there's enough sunshine!!

Just bring a sweater or sumthing so you won't freeze your ass off wink
