Posted:YAY BOBO!!!!! PM or mail me your phone number and I'll give you a buzz so we can work out details, or we can do it the next time i see you on msn. Don't worry, none of the dutch crew bite very hard smile you'll be fine!!

Hi Spritie, I'm sure something can be arranged when you're over, we'd be honoured to meet the 606th member of HOP...wow! smile Just post a reminder in this thread closer to date, say in August or something, and we'll organise a meet in Amsterdam (I'm shamelessly speaking for the entire group here, but I'm pretty sure they'd agree!)

Hmmm there's this site for festivals but it's all in dutch I'm afraid... the one that looks most interesting for you I think would be 'Bazar Curieux' in Rotterdam on the 17th (you can get to Rotterdam in about an hour from Amsterdam, and there are night trains so you don't have to worry about catching the last train back). The other festival in Holland on that day is 'IJsselpop' which is really close to where I live so I could offer you a place to stay, but the line-up for that one looks really, really crap!

Posted:alright Neph, PM sent...

As for gear I can bring (if anyone's interested) I've got: 4 pairs sock (or similar) poi, 1 pair orange/green beamers, 1 pair tails, 1 pair flags, 1 pair monkeyfist wicks.

Oh, forgot to ask, how much fuel should I bring with? I don't really spin fire that much, but hopefully I'll get courage enough to light up on the beach smile

till then!

Posted:Hello there everyone!!!

Welcome new people & international visitors!
Nice to read that there is a new meeting set :-) just a pitty that I can't come, i have my holiday then and i'm in Germany.
But would have been nice...
21st or 25th of May would be possible for me.

Spritie: nope, if you want to meet up and all you don't have to read this whole thread :-) just leave your notes here and just read the last 1 or 2 pages. Tried to find you a event in september, but only found car and motorcycle events hahaha I found 1party that weekend (see below)
Probably there is more info about parties/events in july/august.

If you would like to, there will be a party for only women held in Paradiso the 18th. On this party there is middle eastern and northern african music. I'm going to perform that night with Bellydance, Tribaldance and probably Trancedancing with and without juggletoys.
Just let me know if you are interested, then i can make reservations for your ticket(s) in time :-) And well, i see you in a few months!

Posted:Thanks for the info, guys. I will certainly re-post in here closer to September then.

Moondance, that women's festival sounds really cool. But, since I will be with a bunch of boys as well, I think I'd feel guilty if I went to have a bunch of fun and left them behind.

Posted:Suggestion:

good weather: 5pm, bring picknick,
not-so-good weather: 8 pm, bring drinks & warm clothes.
Really really shitty weather: Plan B (ideas welcome smile)

I don't know Scheveningen that well, but where we were the last time was cool. For those who weren't there: turn right at the pier and keep walking, beyond the end of the boulevard, to the last couple of beach pavilions, and look for juggling hippies!

but,.. damn you Telpeva!,... I AM NOT A SMURF!!!!!
I'm a WaterMage of course.

I wanted to come to Scheveningen, but i just looked at 929ov and it's going to cost me 2 hours just to get there. So unfortunately I'm going to say no to this meet. Scheveningen will have to wait until I got a car again.

Hmm, weather still not looking great for Sat, chance of rain has diminished by 10% but so has the chance of sun frown
If it's really bad, the suggestion is to move the meet to Mot's flat, but in that case we do have to ask you not to bring your extended family, pets & friends I'm afraid... smile HOPpers only due to space limitations...

Posted:hmm ja a break would be nice.. i have just been told i have to have 3 assignments in before the 15! frown but then on the 14th i should have them aready finished smile fingers crossed or im screwed over again censored

if it is really shitty wheather perhaps i could arrenge it for near my place.. it is only a five minute walk from the beach.. ( ab bit further if we are gong to be past the pier but make it 15 wink) our house is pretty big smile have to see with my father though since he will be the only one about at the time.. fortunately he thinks poi interesting.. us pyromaniacs stick together you know :P.. ill ask..

scheveningen is easy to get by go to the hague central and there is a tram going straight to the pier smile im not sure which one it is since they changed all the numbers a year back or so and i have yet to familiarize myself again with the tram system.. but i can find out for you if anyone wants..

\see you soon =)

Micky; your house sounds wonderfull, a nice backup just in case... I vote a yes!

And tram one is ok, except the fact that it doesn't stop directly at central station, so I think bus 22 would be the easyer option?!
