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.
