Posted:How was it?

And who's going to Castlefest this summer? I saw the advert last year, that they were looking for poi twirlers, but I had no idea what castlefest was and I just had a new bf, so I didn't go. I'm planning on going this year, I've heard so much about it, and I liked castlefest's older sister (even though the public seems to be younger): Elf Fantasy Fair.

Well anyone at the Gothic and Fantasy fair in the Rijnhal in Arnhem then? It's a week later. 28th and 29th of april.

It's a wannabee ElffatasyFair, but the tickets are cheap and the OV is very good.

Posted:May the 19th is a Utrecht meeting!!! From the afternoon till 9 o'clock or later.

My sister wants a fireshow for her birthday party so we'll play with fire around 20h-21h or sumthing @ the Lepelenburg park. This doesn't mean we have to hang around with my sister and her friends all the time... we only have to be at the Lepelenburg between 20h-21h for a little fire show.

Who's in?!

Posted:I don't know about queensday...
here in amsterdam there will be no room to turn your butt, let alone to spin fire... but I actually really do feel like a good old fashioned Utrecht meet though. it's been ages since I last met people of HoP!! (and I haven't spun anything but records since).. so is this 19th (ages away!!!) Utrecht or something else? and when is this castle thing?
and Tink: I have loads to say about your "men have it easy" list...

Posted:Holy [censored], I would really like to come anonomatos. But I have a general repetition till 17:00 in Nijmegen. And the next day I have a bellydance performance in the schouwburg in Utrecht. (Cultural sunday, ticket to india)
My dance teacher would kill me if my arms are tired and burned the next day. :P

PS: I'm really sorry I can't come. Because I would really like to spin fire at least once in my life.

Posted:ok maai, I'll tel you how it works:

you don't have to wait for somebody to call a date, you can set one too. it is usually a good idea to suggest either vondelpark, amsterdam or lepelenburg, utrecht, because people tend to show up there.

if it's amsterdam, I could try and get a couple of people on the guestlist for that night in the Melkweg, where there are reasonable dance nights (read: no techno/house) on thursdays and saturdays, and more clubby stuff on fridays.

oh, the guest-list is only half-money, not free.



oh and if you can get a foreign spinner to show up, more people will come too (gayle, olive, bluecat, FNF and elasta are good examples from the past). but I think that with you being new to fire, at least some people would want to come to show off (ahum.. i mean: to teach you-) some fire.



so get your own agenda, and set a date?

(or get us to come to one of your bellydance shows?)



*edit: I will come to the next meet with enough people, with or without maai or baar wink

Posted:Good point, I'm just not an organizing type and really shy to meeting strangers. But i'll try, the last thing is: I have Always time, except when dancing. Because I have no school or a job atm.
And everyone can come to the bellydance show at 20th of may, it's a free show. But I can't stay afterwards, because I have to drive others home, can't let them wait because of the poi. Except for my dance teacher who just fell in love with poi...
(Someone has tips to learn your 47year old bellydance teacher to poi?) If anyone is interested in the show, don't hesitate and show off your poi. :P

Posted:Hey everyone, all that things going on 19th of may in Utrecht, sounds really cool! But I'm still just an amateur, so no fire for me yet I think, though, 'stiekem' I would love to try allready! But it would probably kill me wink so.
But would someone be in to help me learn some new tricks? smile

@dossie: yeah, guess there are parking spots near the park. but beware of all the one-way traffic around the park (and in whole of utrecht) :-]
@nova: just be there!

Hope the weather will be just like today or even better :-D

Posted:@Jarno, when you c a meeting pronounced on this thread, you can always join up. & bring as much stuff as you can carry (if only to show off :-D)I should know, because I went to my first HoP meeting the same way. I think I won't be there but who knows.... Maybe you can PM anonomatos 4 his mobile number, he seems 2 go 4 sure. Anywayz, have fun everyone.

Hedy.

Posted:Hey Eimhin,
Cool, would be nice to welcome you here as a HoPper and Circus-academy student here in the Netherlands! When do you have auditions and when do you know which one it will be? I have some friends at codarts and like the school & people; very friendly, good ambience, etc. Only I know the students did had some complaints about the lessons (since they are the first year to do circus codarts not too surprising). Tilburg is a mystery to me, curious how it will become.

and Mot is supposed to be out here indeed, usually giving Irish folks a warm welcome... Haven't heard from him in a while though.

@Anonomatos: How is the meet in Utrecht looking the 19th? For potential visitors nice to get a little more info cool!

Greetz!

@beertje: what kind of extra info you need? Just a plain old HoP-meet from end of afternoon till the evening. Meal together, bit of fire, etc.

Anyone wants more info? I will post later what time we will meet the 19th!!
