Posted:hey bra-q
from cs in utrecht you can either take the bus (nr 4 to burgermeester fockema andrealaan) or you can walk, as its not far.. if you walk, walk in the way the busses are going, so its basically jsut straight, past media markt and mcdonalds... keep going until you see the stadsschouwburg on your left.. take a right there, into a little park alongside a canal.. follow that little path to the end, and you end up smack in front of lepelenburg.
hope it helps.

if anyone has a better suggestion, please let it come..
there are a lot of other busses you can take, but the busses at cs are quite confusing, so bus four works..
oh, if you take bus 4, take it to the schouwburg (thats what the halte is called too.

good luck, and have fun!

Posted:yeah, stadsschouwburg then to the right... walk straight till you see a park with lots of plastic chairs and some sort of podium/stage/tent kinda thingie (looks like a mini circus-tent or something)... quite recognizable, at least if you know how to explain things :P

Buses 11 to the Uithof and 3 to the burg. fockema andrealaan also go to the stadsschouwburg, and from there it's easy as explained above, but give one of us a call if you're unsure of how to get there from the Schouwburg, we can come rescue you :-)
see yous later!!

Sounds interesting, but I can't make that... frown

Basically, I'm about on the 23rd (and maybe evenings the week before), and wondering if anyone's about in utrecht for a spin? biggrin

Posted:wave Hi Guys,

long time no speak and all that [censored]. Just wondered if any of you had though about coming over to the UK for Falmouth or Play?

I told Eric and Tom that if anyone came over and flew into Bristol Airport we would take anyone down.

Would be good to see a dutch invasion of the UK.

Posted:@roezie: yesterday kicked ass!

I finally bought fire poi !! whoo-hoo. 8mm ball chain and some SWEET wicks, but they were cheaper than I expected, so I really spoiled myself and bought flags too and they rock! Roezie and I went to Vondelpark for 4 hours and just poi-ed and flagged smile

I wonder if it's possible to attach little lights on the flags for night time...

Posted:Hello again dutch spinners!

Ok, so I will be in rotterdam from 2-11 July, and amsterdam from 12-16 July. could somebody please list the regular meets near these 2 areas? I would love to have a spin, but need to try and make plans to get there in between the hockey matches.

Also, where can I buy paraffin (or the most readily available fuel)? hardware shop, corner cafe?

Many thanks!

Posted:@anonomatos: Is lampenolie the same as paraffin? I read that paraffin is very smoky and doesn't burn as hot as lamp oil.... ??

I bought fire poi, so if I've got the balls (and the wicks smile) then I might have my very first burn ever on Sunday with you guys...

Where are we meeting in Amsterdam? At vondelpark again by the statue? Cos if so, then it's easier for me to go straight to vondelpark than all the way to central station first.

Tell me, tell me, tell me smile

Posted:wel i have used parafin and lamp oil both .. and indeed i think lamp oil is a bit heavier and burns hotter.. also the taste for it with firebreathing is slightly different. but both work just as well for anything you have planned.. wink so not exactly the same but close enough.. also what in the uk counts for lamp oil is different than what we have.. ours is almost the same as parrafin.. except that it is a pain to buy in only 1 liter bottles and the parrafin in 5 ah the good old days smile

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
no go for me for the scheveningen party since i am not here:(. long live hollidays smile

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

when is falmouth and play?? i wanted to come to england anyway to visit some old friends...
