# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 45 minutes

Warm up

4 clubs:
Fountain, doubles
534534 and back to fountain

3 clubs:
55113
5350530 (suggested by P), got almost a full round, except I accidentally did 12 instead of 30 at the end

...was planning to do 552 (triple triple flip) once and back to fountain, but P suggested passing and that has higher priority than solo juggling. Always.

# 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.

# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 60 minutes

Warm up

4 clubs:
Fountain, doubles.
3{4,3]2 worked better than before, got at least 8 multiplexes on a good run when I was not counting.
552 (triple triple flip) once and back to fountain

3 clubs:
Placing a club in "club-on-club"-balance from juggling and going back to cascade

Siteswap 5 as doubles:
55500
50505
552
55550

# 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.

Total practice time: 250 minutes

Locations: Södermalmsskolan (Fritidsjonglörerna), Kvisthamraskolan (Cirkus Mani)

# passing, 90 minutes

(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)

Total practice time: 110 minutes

# 4 balls, ball passing, 25 minutes

Short 3b warm up: 45123

3[4,3]2
4b fountain

Ball passing:
(With L)
5b 1-count
6b 2-count, didnt't work yet but I think it will. What is the easiest 6b passing pattern to teach someone who can't do more than a few catches of 3b cascade yet? (We tried 1-count last time.)

# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 70 minutes

Warm up
Tried doing 423 for 5 minutes, got approximately 5 minutes after a few attempts (only looked at a regular clock that didn't show seconds)

4 clubs:
Fountain, doubles
534534 and back to fountain
534, tried to continue, I think I got 4 times on the best run.
3[4,3]2

# 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.

# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 50 minutes

Warm up

4 clubs:
Fountain, doubles
534534 and back to fountain was more difficult than it should be
552 (triple triple flip) once and back to fountain, decided to do something that I haven't done before since the things I can usually do didn't work anyway. Got it once from each hand.

3 clubs:
55113
423
Backcross, every 3rd throw

# passing, 70 minutes

(With S)
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.

Nothing worked very well.

3[4,3]2 was maybe better than before, but then I have not got very far with that one yet.

53 with the 3 as a backcross, once and back to fountain. Barely got it even once.

3 clubs:
45123, even this didn't work well today...
531
Backcrosses, every third throw
423 (double, thumb roll, backcross)
