Posted:hello,

the ejc will be in Karlruhe from the 2nd of august to 10th of august 2008.

This year, we want to make the fire-space more comfortable, so we would love to get some sugestions what poiple need.

this is the location:

please post your ideas for decorations!

The city of Karlsruhe is concerned about any pollution by kerosene. Clean spinning will be an important topic at the fire-space.

thanks,
g

Posted:Ohhh... the first EJC 08 thread smile

Looking forward to it smile

Not using kerosene is probably the only way to avoid any pollution...

Any other fuels available?

Posted:as far as I know any fuel made out of oil polutes the nature.

the only way is to take care and fight for every drip.

the consequent usage of shake-off-cans is one thing. another thing might be the covering of the ground in the preparation-zone with a foil or a carpet.

Posted:Everybody wants to do burnoffs and firebreathing so there will be drips anyway...

There's paraffin based (mostly) on rapeseed-oil (lat. brassica rapa). That might be the cleanest option if you can find it.

Not sure if it's any more/less "green" then kero though.

Can I place a preliminary booking for one of those seats?

Roadtrip to Germany sounds awesome.

*wonders when it's appropriate to start asking for the dates of Play for holidy booking purposes* wink


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Contact without dance is like sex without wiggling.
A) it does feel as good
