We still have the registration open at http://fjong.org/prereg and
you can really help us if you register there. Currently we are
to understand what our budget looks like. If you register, you really
us so much to know what we can afford, really.

We also need your last minute help in spreading the word about the
convention and make sure we get a lot of nice people coming! Tell
a friend and forward this letter!

* Practical stuff, as sleeping and such

We'll be at a youth-centre with trainghalls. We'll at least have two
separate halls to use. Perhaps we'll even manage to be outside on the
large grassy area around the building.

Sleeping will occur, for some at some time. It will done at a school
close to the convention centre. You'll have to bring your own
sleeping-bag and mattress. (And toothbrush, soap, favorite teddy
bear... You get the picture.)

There will an absolute ban on drugs of all sorts: So no alcohol at the
convention site or sleeping-halls. Smoking will be permitted outdoors
only. This is not negotionable.

There's a small food-store close to the convention site, and a
pizzeria. Within walking distance there's a big lake. Eh -- and other
restaurants of the fast food-variety. If you take a omnibus, you'll
find several shops and restaurants after a short ride.

Call us crazy. Call the Swedish army music band crazy. But they want
to have jugglers in their show for the big Windmusic band festival on
the saturday.

It will be the opening act for a large assembly of wind music bands
from all over the world.  Would you like this - absolutely unique -
opportunity to perform 'music for the eyes'? Then mail us - we have
room for about 30 jugglers. It will probably be an experience for

Yes, we need help to keep this convention working during the four
