[15:39] <AndriusKulikauskas> when do you need to buy the tickets?
[15:41] <ken_Owino> we are leaving on the July 5th, atleast we should have the tickets one week in advance, probably by Thursday next week.
[15:43] <AndriusKulikauskas> I don't know any contacts who can help
[15:43] <AndriusKulikauskas> Here is a website about an acrobatics festival in The Netherands: http://festival.akrobatiek.nl/uksponsors.php
[15:43] <Sasha> lessons from the art of juggling

[15:44] <AndriusKulikauskas> I think your work is very important but there is little time now
[15:44] <ken_Owino> Thanks Andrius, i will visit this link.
[15:45] <AndriusKulikauskas> Here is the Dutch Acrobats Federation with emails of the leaders http://www.akrobatiek.net/wwwaar/wwwaar_en.htm
[15:46] <ken_Owino> It's true, there is little, time because of the inconvinience caused by the postponing of th acryoga teachers traininig in the States.
[15:46] <Sasha> http://www.jugglingdb.com/clubs/index.php?record=186
[15:47] <ken_Owino> We honestly never wanted to miss this chance, because ability is of little account without opportunity you know.
[15:47] <AndriusKulikauskas> http://www.corpus-acrobatics.nl/acrobaticslab.html Corpus International Acrobatics Lab and the email is [email protected]
[15:49] <ken_Owino> We are going through the links, it's amazing, we never thought of this before, i now see the light in the saying"alone we can do so little; together we can do so much"
[15:50] <AndriusKulikauskas> Some of them may have some money
[15:50] <AndriusKulikauskas> or good ideas
[15:51] <ken_Owino> I bet we need to get intouch with them.
[15:52] <Sasha> there are plenty of links and people you can contact

[15:56] <Sasha> etc
[15:56] <ken_Owino> yes this links will come in handy, suppose we get this opportuniyty, then it's yet another exposure of our group to the Artistic world,
i believe, being social, and open to embracing new cultures, and friends is the key to unlocking our potential.
