Does anyone know where, when, and if there's going to be the next FDC.

Here's another thread about it http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=7066.0

and FDC2010 will happen 5. -8.8.2010.
and we have organized some special treats for people staying from EJC2010. Like none can be better.

First 33rd EJC in Joensuu 24.7. -1.8.2010 Then social bus trip (or something totally different) through the country of thousand lakes to Eräjärvi where is time for SDS Diabolothon competition. On a way is great change to check some views, hang out, see sights etc. Then Finally at Eräjärvi is the FDC.

Check for quotes in threads about earlier FDC's, you won't regret coming.

As an extra note. Diabolo.ca's spell check would like to change Eräjärvi to Sarajevo. :) That's cute.

Oh that's totally going to be a great festival again. Seems that it will be more adult than before so that's different. If any questions feel free to ask. We'll make the proper info again when all is planned. Basically it will be like previous years and that info is still available. ;)

I was wondering if there's any more information available at this point and if it would make sense to fly back to the Netherlands from a different airport than Joensuu (where I'm probably flying to for the EJC)? I don't know what the ideal airport would be to depart from, considering the FDC is in Eräjärvi.

Thanks in advance!

So Joensuu is in the East of Finland. But Eräjärvi is much more to west. Closest Airport to Eräjärvi is Tampere Airport which is the Ryanair one. So i think that's the cheapest to use.

The next best option is Helsinki-Vantaa airport which is the main Airport to Finland. For that you'll going to have to travel two hours more than to Tampere. But from Helsinki i think you can get straight flights to pretty much anywhere you like.

What kind of information would you like to get about FDC? Just general info?

Deffinitely different airport if you're doing it all the way. EJC2010 and the FDC10 together. There's also a rock festival in Joensuu just week before EJC so it might be even worth of some thoughts... At least I'm going to all these festivals. http://www.ilosaarirock.fi/2010/english/

Easiest is like Marko said. First fly to Joensuu, then country trip to Eräjärvi and plane either from Tampere or Helsinki. After FDC there's good change to get a lift from me to Stavanger, Norway if anyone is interested.

Ilosaarirock happens quite near,to the EJC2010 with a bit of overlapping so here's good change to see some sights, like lake and stage for fire gala, etc site http://www.ilosaarirock.fi/2010/english/info/festival_site_map.php

Awesome thanks! I don't think I'll be going to the rock festival as well, 2 weeks is exhausting and expensive enough :)

What kind of information would you like to get about FDC? Just general info?

Don't know really :P general info I suppose yeah. An other thing I'd be interested in is information about the trip from Joensuu to Eräjärvi in between, but that's probably a bit early to say. An estimate of the costs of the bus (?) trip and FDC convention would come in very handy to know as well.

If you guys don't know yet, I'll just be patient. Really looking forward to (probably) the best 2 weeks of my life!

I'll make full description of the event during next week with Samuli. We will try to figure out most then. So I'll return to this Martijn. About the bus, well i think we just share it with everybody so the more people will come the cheaper it is. ;) I'll try to figure it all out.

Mr. D, you probably just used wrong search terms. Luckily for you i made all the tags to google maps last year. Check them you here and see for yourself in streetview:

I hope this clears things up a bit.

This is going to be sweet. Trying to go to all three. Ilosaari is always lots of fun.

Sorry for the non-informative post.

Haha, that video clip was antique. Didn't even remember it being online anymore... :)

Seriously it's really rare to see me using anything but wooden sticks, that shouldn't be surprise anymore. Wooden sticks have been my weapon of choice for 10 years and they will remain as one another 10years. There's no real reason for me to change away from wood. Can do everything with them.

FDC2010 videos are on my computer now, will work couple of days with them and then begin to release them one by one.
