# club passing, combat, ring passing, 5 balls, balancing, 5 clubs, 7 balls, head bounce, 420 minutes

Always a good convention, Bath. Arrived a bit late due to a unintended diversion to Bristol, but got passing with Cameron straight away on arrival.

Had already printed a sheet of things to work on and blasted through it pretty quickly. My tomahawks and treblas were working well, shoulder throws still crap though. Got a 6 up 360, but found it tricky enough that the 2 stage seems overly ambitious at the moment. Transition into back to back was harder than expected with straight early doubles (one each).

7 club b2b really nice, got 80 passes easy then tried some tricks. Singles was hard, as were 360s. I got 7 club singles into me doing 5 clubs with a bit of work and a lot of correcting, naturally Cameron got it first time.

8 club singles felt a bit strained, but got the 4 up 360 in just a few tries, and wasn't massively far off the 8 up. Got a couple of good runs of 8 b2b too- probably beating our pb, but wasn't counting. 8 and 9 on triples felt better than ever- my triples feel almost controllable now.

9 worked much better when we both took a step back from each other. No super long runs, maybe just over 40 passes. Tried singles (dropping down from a few passes of doubles). Flashing 9 back to back felt vaguely plausible in triples, not in doubles. 10 clubs was pretty good- probably just over 5 passes each (11 or 12 total), but not counting and not clean.

Combat started well, then I lost to a couple of people I felt I should have beaten. Total was 8 won 5 lost, but then lost in the quarters again. Felt like my opponent had learned how to deal more effectively with my attacks since we met in the qualifiers. Cameron went on to be 2nd though, which was good, and I felt I played well on the whole.

Did some work on Chopabout with Cameron and Elina before and during the games, but took part in some. 4th-ish in club balance (bloody seal roll again), reasonable in 5 ball endurance (bloody halfshower again), 3rd in 5 club endurance and maybe joint 3rd/4th in 7 ball endurance, but that one was hard to call. Did head bouncing in random trick endurance which I felt was one of the hardest tricks there. Had to stop because I was moving about too much and I thought I was going to trip over the spectators.

Ring passing with Varkor before dinner- just 2 counts. 8 and 9 rings went well- beat our records and moved on. 10 rings improved massively when I slowed down lots and sorted out the angle on my passes- beat our record with at least 15 passes each. Tried 11 to finish, Varkor starting running 5 and me starting cold with 6 like the pros seem to do with clubs. Don't think I was doing my selfs high enough because he was getting the 3rd pass too early. Very flashable though, and possibly easier than 10 in some ways.

Yay me for beating up on players way below my level. I might put in a rule next year to stop top 10 players entering small tournaments like that. But then again I was invited to take part.
