Um yes or no..

I never put an x on my hand but i don't drink or use other illigal drugs..
it depends on the definition .. I use tea sometimes coffee a couple off times a year.. sugar,..

I don't use the term, but like aspects from the philosophy

not sure if there are still tickets for the show.. think it's pretty populair.. do you go to Amsterdam?

Queensday is on sathurday because of the protestand ideal not to work on sunday.. I know that most people don't see queensday as work.. but that's why they changed it...

How did you know I don't understand dutch?!?!? wow :P

Being a vegan means I'm a wimp.. and that's okay, I'm sick and tired of being a macho tuff guy.
I am not a vegetarian because I love animals; I am a vegetarian because I hate plants

I love to see it!

We are doing variou meet-ups in the US as well.

I'm sponsoring one in the Northwest soon, VeganEssentials and I had one in California that involved a few others too, and I'm trying to get one going in Texas, Florida, and Pennsylvania too.

It looks like the German group had a good time training and eating. I like seeing these events going on. Networking and building a community are what I'm all about!

I hope it works out for you guys.

Hey,

Though I've only been a member of this board since last week I think a meet-up is a good idea, it's always nice to meet other vegans :thumbright:

Do you know how many people from holland are on this board? Since I don't have a clue...

you want to train, eat and relax?

Sounds like a plan 8) Although I don't know if training is a good idea since I'm not really much of a bodybuilder, i train with freeweights only to increase my muay thai performance :boxer: (and since you're a runner i assume that you're not into to the very heavy stuff?)

as for the date, i don't have any time at all 'till the start of june, promised myself i'd finish my ba-thesis before then. on the bright side, there's some time to gather some people.. :wink:

in my logg you can see what i do, but you are right I'm not a BB..

http://www.veganfitness.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3978

what we could do is an other sport activity.. (climbing, cycling,...)

something we don't do usually... I don't mean that i don't use a bike,.. at the moment +/- 10 hours a week, but not like a sports bike..

I don't mind to take some time to plan

what about 17th off june?

Hey Runner,

Both climbing and cycling sound like fun to me, but hey, I'm basically up for anything :P Maybe we should discuss the activity when we know who wants to join us?

I don't have anything planned for the 17th of june, so that's also okay.
Let's start recruiting!

Anywhere is fine, I don't mind travelling. I'll start a new threat for recruiting purposes. Will you ask aorund on the other forums you were talking about?
