E.K.O. 2016 - Netherlands - EJC
« on: 18 November, 2015, 15:44:18 »


The European Kendama Open 2016 will be held at the EJC in the Netherlands.
Please read all details here: http://kendama.co.uk/eko

We're looking forwards to seeing you all there. FB event page to add yourselves as "Going" or "Maybe".
Please ask questions below!

Q: Where do we stay?
A: The cheapest option is to camp at the EJC (camping is included in the EJC ticket price - but you must bring your own tent). If you want to stay at a hotel, then please find one in Amsterdam (25 mins by train from EJC) or Almere (7 mins by train from EJC).

Q: How much are EJC tickets?
A: Ticket prices have been announced at http://www.ejc2016.org/tickets/ Pre-registration prices are cheaper, so we recommend you pre-register. A full week ticket is better value than day tickets.

Q: How do we get there?
A: Please see the EJC website for travel information.

Q. Can I use [this kendama]?
i. Any competition-size model is allowed for the Dan Jam.
ii. Any model and size of kendama is allowed for 7 To Spike, but judges will be mindfull that larger/stickier/modified kendamas may be easier to use. They will judge with this in mind.
iii. For Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced/Pro, you must use a JKA/BKA approved kendama: Please read all of http://kendama.co.uk/approved.html carefully. Matt Nix will be the kendama inspector at the E.K.O. If you are uncertain, please see Matt and show him your kendama in person. Matt may use his discretion with respect to markings and wear, but Matt's decision is final.

Q. Where do we meet for the Amsterdam trips?
A.
Monday 1st:
- Meeting point 1: 12:00-12:30, by the big gym in the EJC. - We will then take a train to Amterdam Central, and walk to…
- Meeting point 2: ~13:00-13:45 Leidseplein. - Grab lunch, gather, and then we will wander… to Vondelpark, maybe? The rest of the day will be freeform!

Thursday 4th:
- Meeting point 1: 13:00-13:30, by the big gym in the EJC. - We will then take a train to Amterdam Central, and walk to…

Interesting, getting back into the EJC.

I hope to have time to go, even if it means going with all the family and having little kids around all the time.

As a side note, during the trip to Amsterdam, don't forget to pay a visit to the Juggle Store (a.k.a SunRise) to see one of those few shops that are filled with kendamas (sort of like the Krom shop in EKO 2014)

I am sure you have lots of ideas for spending a day in Amsterdam, but just in case, I used to live there ;-)

I was hoping that it would be in Almere! I guess details are still being finalized, but is there an idea for which day it will be yet? Since I don't know if I will be able to do an entire EJC, but I would like to drive up for the EKO.

Good shout on the EJC BKA, and also a double whammy with it being very near an interesting city to get a good fill of tourism (for anyone who is into that kind of thing). Dates are in the diary!
