I might come. I'm in the country and although I'm not (much of) an AR person, I would like to meet any VB'ers who come, I'll also come to the demo's probably (although I have an important meeting and a party on friday).<br><br><br><br>
Maybe we could organize a VB meetup there one of those days, probably in the evening?

Hi again!<br><br><br><br>
Okay, forget Hengelo...<br><br>
The place changed.<br><br>
A similar group that did the last gathering is organising it, but it will be different. I don't think that it will get out of control and you can still decide on your own if you want to join a demo or not.<br><br>
If you want to make a difference join it.<br><br><br><br>
Hope to see you there!<br><br><br><br>
If you've more questions write to <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a>

Hey-<br><br><br><br>
I am new to the board and am moving to Amsterdam for 3 years of study at uni. from the states. Just wanted to say hey b/c I figured you Dutchies would already be eyeing this thread.<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, not sure if I will go or not...bookmarked the site alinac...just don't want to get myself in trouble after being there for less than a month since I am a foreigner, make sense? Maybe some of you guys have some feedback for me or have been to past events like this?<br><br><br><br>
Also if I am not having a scooter since I will just be there is public transport possible? And any cheap hotels nearby? Look forward to hearing back from y'all, peace.<br><br><br><br>

hey herby,<br><br><br><br>
i am living in germany and i'm from australia and i'm not really worried about getting in trouble there. i also worry about getting into trouble with the police and choose which "demo's" i go to. there might a bit of action going on but i'm sure you can choose what you want to participate in and what you don't want to participate in .....<br><br><br><br>
what kind of visa will you have?? a student visa i guess ....<br><br>
i have a residence permit and work permit and even when i have had my name taken by the police (for being in public place outside a LAB), i didn't even have any ID on me and nothing happened ....<br><br><br><br>
just some advice from me anyway, it's up to you totally what you choose to do, of course <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
let us know if you will come along !!!<br><br>
i'll be there selling stuff with my merch and info table <a href="http://www.rootsofcompassion.org" target="_blank">www.rootsofcompassion.org</a> so come and say hello if you do come along <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> i'm sure there won't be that many people with aussie accents hehehe<br><br><br><br>
adited to add >>> by the way, welcome to the boards <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:"><br><br>
i know people who are coming from amsterdam and could hook you up with them if you want to go along ????

Yes, I think so. You could travel by train and later go with a taxi or something to the exact place (still unknown I think?!)<br><br><br><br>
I think you can sleep there. Look at the website.

Welcome aboard, Herby <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">.<br><br><br><br>
I study at a university in Amsterdam as well <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">. Regarding transport in general whilst staying in Amsterdam: buy an old bike and a good lock. When in Rome, do as the Romans do <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">.

Hi dudes!<br><br><br><br>
@Herby: Yeah, just come =)<br><br>
I don't think that you have to worry. Just as w_o_e says, you can choose on your own what you want to do and what not.<br><br>
+check the website <a href="http://www.gathering2003.de.vu" target="_blank">http://www.gathering2003.de.vu</a> as Vegantastic told you.<br><br>
Since I'm not from Holland I'm not into the transport there... so write to <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a> .<br><br>
They will help you and I do believe that other people from Amsterdam will join the gathering...<br><br><br><br>
@with_open_eyes: Yay =) I'm looking forward to c ya there.<br><br>
I love your rootsofcompassion work!
