    What's up with 2019 IC Cup?

    Hey everyone, was just wondering what was going on? Where will it be this year? Barcelona again
    Or back to Dam?

    Personally I think the Barca edition was perfect set up.

    We need to know so we can plan accordingly.

    Is it my ignorance of Barcelona that makes me scream Amsterdam?
    I love the Dam. No locals only clubs to join, just open house coffee shops for everybody. The red light district has a warm seedy glow that's always got something on show to grin about. Hotels can be cheap as chips (fries?) and the little streets and canals are so appealing. There are a number of large parks where events can be staged. Good transport links. Food everywhere. The dutch people are great. They have offered a safe haven for years. Can you imagine if we pull out, and the doors on these shops close because they no longer helped the economy. I owe them so much. I want to keep green tourist money flowing in. So they can shout about the figures when the government next reviews the situation.

    I can't go to France or Spain anyway. Portugal is looking friendly though.

        IDK the quality of weed in A'dam is just awful now i felt offended when i was there in November for a rave night.. its just a tourist cattle conveyer belt with shitty menus and uppy early cut bland tasting weed.. the coffeeshops need to sort their shit out, dumbasses.. im not in a rush to give A'dam any cash again.. i couldnt find anything to match the lemon haze i took with me :(

          Barcelona is my preference. Mainly based on weather, food/costs, and being extract friendly in all the clubs

            yeah i think Barcelona worked really well last year, there is no doubt they are way more on top of the weed game then the Dutch today. last year was the first cup where i didnt lose my voice because of all the unflushed and possibly sprayed weed that was around.

            vive il cupo icmago Barcelona, hehehe....

              It's kinda weird how this weed thing went with Amsterdam, for a long time they were the only game in town, so to speak, the main destination for weed tourism.. They woulda made good business even with mediocre product, and it's not like everything was good back in the day there, but you had options and usually was able to score nice stuff. Now ppl have options, lots of legal spots in the US. Europe, too.. You'd think Amsterdam shops would pick up their game, but you'd be wrong. Last time I visited A'dam (2017), shopped around for a while, but didn't find anything awesome enough to feel good about em weed deals. Prices had gone up, too, I think. Still not bad for Europe.

              One thing about Amsterdam and Barcelona I don't like, is too many tourists around. And yea I'd be a tourist too, that's why I try to stay away from overcrowded spots like that these days.

              Also, if it's 420 again as in 20th of April, can't attend anyways, cause too busy with outdoor prepping and thing for the coming season. Why does it always have to be 420? Damn stoners always with that 420 shit, mang..

              Oh well, you guys have fun. I'll just get me coat..

                I would love to attend this. Making the obvious choice Detroit Michigan.

                  I think the accommodation and Amsterdams local council has become a bit of a nightmare
                  When you factor in that and the quality of flowers then you can see why people are reluctant and our little posse of Gratefulhead ,,ojd,,mr Haze and a few more American mates
                  Were very disappointed with what was on offer in November,,,,,
                  Coffee shops seem reluctant to stock fire and still want to pay peanuts for cream until this
                  Changes then things won’t get better,,,
                  Barcelona is a very beautiful city and big,,,,I love the scale of Amsterdam ,,s2

                    I think the coffeeshops are being manipulated by the council to sell low strength weed to keep that tourism trap friendly for lightweights and not a destination for the hardcore stoner. Thats the impression i got anyway.. Or all the growers supplying them arent worth their weight in chemical salts.. Rotterdam is much nicer imvho..

                      its a simple problem, Amsterdam has huge police resources dedicated to finding and shutting down grow operations, they still hunt them down nowadays like in the worst of times, they use the electric company, they make landlords take courses to detect and then report growing, even the public is encouraged to report it. this means growers want to get their stiff harvested asap. so fast strains are used and taken early with zero flush. the clones are probably dunked in some systemic pesticide or even sprayed with said shit during the grow. same with fungicides. all of this weed is then sold as quick as possible. so we end up with the coffee shops selling 90% crap and 1 or 2 strains that might be decent genetics, but still taken early. there used to be exceptions, for a while the Voyagers had a decent couple of growers supplying them, but you have to be lucky and arrive when they have that stuff. last time, even they had nothing that i would write home about even with multiple visits on different days.

                        Ah ive heard that before.. that is so shitty. The dutch used to value their freedom but it feels like our terrorism paranoia has only helped make the west more pointlessly authoritarian, who'd a thunk it.

                        I think we should community fund raise and each put a k or something down and buy/build an ICmag cup compound in spain or anywhere.. bit crazy i guess lol..

                          There is becoming a huge dividing line between people interested in great herb and people that have some weed and will sell you it. Im personally want it pointed out everytime anyone sees it. What is good for weed is not always good for profit margin. And why should it matter anyways.

                              Yeah, that's just a silly date! The weather is still cold, the last harvest long ago, the next harvest not in sight...no logic behind....
