(With S)
Techo, I am not good at this... Didn't get many passes.
972 was difficult but we got the pattern started at least. S also tried with one more club on his side (replacing the zip with a heff) but that made it too difficult for us.
567 was also difficult, I think I need more zap practice.

(With S)
7c 1-count

(With S and E)
Feed, S doing 2-count, me and E doing 4-count.

(With S)
I wanted to try something with triple passes, S wanted something more interesting than 7c 4-count. We tried 5p3144p1. Difficult.

# passing, 90 minutes

(With P)
3-count with tricks. Tried squeezing in a 441 (on singles) instead of my two selfs (with a crossing pass and a hurry afterwards). Also did early doubles with pirouette, this is working most of the times now.
5-count popcorn with variations
7-count popcorn
French 3-count (didn't work, so most of the time one of us did 3.5p22 instead)
7c Why Not-practise (hold self instead of heff zip, the plan was to do heff zip when the pattern started to work, but we didn't get to doing more than an occational attempt at one heff.)

(With S and P)
4p334p334p22233, walking on the 222, "the 3 people thing that is similar to that shooting star on doubles that we do sometimes"
Bruno's Nightmare (9-beat version)
Bruno's Nightmare, 7-beat version (pspspss)
10c Bruno's Nightmare, 7-beat version (pspspsp on crossing doubles), didn't work but feels doable.

I think that the thing I have made most progress with as a Passer recently is catching passes that are not perfect, and still continue, even if the pattern is not a very basic one. I still have problems with it, but I am getting better.

# passing, 80 minutes

(With P)
3-count with tricks, I did early double with pirouette in both directions
7c 3-count
7c Jim's 2-count
7c asynchronous Jim's 2-count
4p3333 vs 34p444 and 44p333 vs 334p44, tried both sides of both patterns

(With S, P and T)
Pattern with me doing 4p3334, T and P doing 4p3344, S doing 44p344.
Feed with feeder doing 2-count doubles and feedees doing 6-count popcorn, everyone tried all positions.
Tried to make a weave with feeder doing 3-count and feedees doing 3p33333444, worked in theory but was asymmetric...

# passing, 130 minutes

(With P)
3-count with tricks. Did early doubles, 4p41,44p1,423p. Also tried crossing 4 to myself followed by hold and crossing pass. (4x23px ? Probably not valid notation...)
6-count popcorn
Variant of 6-count popcorn, changing hand by doing a crossing double to yourself... 444p34x2 (not sure if P did straight or crossing passes, should make a causal diagram or something).
5-count popcorn with variations
7c 3-count

(With P and T)
Feed with feeder doing 7c 3-count and feedees doing 6-count
Same for the feeder but with feedees walking around each other, doing alternating 3-count and 9-count. Was not easy. Everybody tried feeding.
Bruno's Nightmare (9-beat version)
Bruno's Nightmare 7-beat version

(With S, T and P)
2 6-count popcorns in parallel, with the two jugglers on one side of the patterns switching places on the 333 (3 selfs) part. Got it almost working as long as my side was standing still, but I dropped a lot when trying to walk. Mostly my heffs.
One of the walking patterns from last time, got a decent round after trying it a few times, easy juggling really, just need to remember what to do.
Weave
Weave with an extra club, all of us tried feeding, I found it a bit difficult (we didn't get a full round with me feeding).
Weave a bit quicker (feeder doing pps instead of 2-count), I didn't try feeding in this one.

No doubt I was the weakest link in most of the passing today, it's hard to catch up with people who started juggling 12-20 years before I did, but I am trying. :) Really lucky to have them to pass with.

# passing, 15 minutes

(With B)
7c 2-count doubles. We have done this before, but that was at least half a year ago and I don't think B has done any passing (or much juggling at all) since then... Well, after practising a bit we decided to try to get 10 passes each to collect. Got it after some attempts.

(With P)
6-count popcorn
Why Not with tricks (I did 3.5p 4.5p 3 1 3, P also did something with double passes)
pspss with tricks, mostly different early doubles
pps with tricks, mostly early doubles.
1-count with tricks, Brolly notation style (so, counting on your partner to not pass if they don't receive a pass)
33334p4p4p0
7c 1-count doubles
7c 1-count doubles vs singles
5-count popcorn

(With P, M and K)
Two different walking patterns where we took turns feeding (only righthanded passing)

# passing, 100 minutes

(With T)
3p[4,3]2 vs 3p33 (we took turns trying the side with an extra club, also a couple of attempts at both of us doing that, but that didn't work)

(With S, P and T)
Lines:
S and P doing 3444p (on the ends), me and T doing 4p33p3 (in the middle)
S and P replacing 44 with 5p3 in the pattern above
Removing a club to do "half the pattern", kind of...
M or T 4p333,
T or M 3p333,
S or P 3334p,
P or S 35p33
Then tried to switch between the two "directions" of the pattern:
M 33333p3334p3334p333
T 4p3334p33333333p333
S 3334p35p3335p333334p
P 35p333334p3334p35p33
...I think we got a full round once or twice. Had some problems with collisions between 4p thrown from end position and 4p thrown on the next beat by the person in front of that person.

9669667, we had many collisions between crossing 7 and the crossing 9 right after it. New pattern for us, I had tried it with P but hadn't got much more than one round. Got about that far with S too, after a while.
