Jonathan Fudge -

Super excited to be here listed with all these other amazing groups of jugglers. If you get a chance to stop by, we would love to see you!

#TampaJugglingClub

Jonathan Fudge -

Hello everyone!

I'm Jonathan Fudge out of Tampa, Florida and am working on putting together a juggling club in the North Tampa area.

When I'm not juggling, I run an entertainment business and a balloon decor business.
(https://YTEevents.com)

I also have a daughter, wife, and soon no pets.

I enjoy learning new things, playing chess, gardening, watching shows, and hanging out with friendly people.

Hi Jonathan, welcome to the Edge and greetings from the Coconut Grove Juggling Excange, also in Florida.

Hi, and welcome.

Although "....and soon no pets." has interesting overtones. ^_^ Good luck to all pets involved.

This video about a home-made electric monowheel is quite fun - it turned out better than I'd expected!

°mouooooohrrrh° .. this. is. so. greedy!
A real privile(d)ge to be watching it.

Amanda Miller -

Well Hedo there!:) my name is Amanda and I’m a baby juggler. I really want to meet others in the city that wanna
practice and play as much as I do and a safe place to become the
artist I wAnna grow into.
I’m currently practicing juggling (the basics of it) but I’m also looking into magic (I mostly starting to look into magic with top hats) I’m also looking into the unknown like Acrobatics, cloud swinging. I’m also new to the city so I’m not sure whaT festivals to check out and get involved in.

The Void - - Parent

Hedo to you too. You don't say which city or country you're in, so check out the Clubs section to see if there's a juggling club near you. (And of course, if they're meeting again, since the apocalypse, etc.)
Welcome to the site, and good luck with your juggling journey.

7b_wizard - - Parent

Hi there, °wow°, how. en. ter. pri. sing. a. spirit! :-) good luck w\ every single and the whole of all your ideas!

Tufty - - Parent

Well, that's certainly a niche. I've seen photos of puppy juggling, and I've been practicing kitten kickups for a while myself, but I've never seen baby juggling done on stage.

Seriously, though, welcome, and do follow the advice to find a local club. If you're in a city, that shouldn't be too hard to do, and juggling "in company" is loads more fun than by yourself.

Here you go Tufty (not quite juggling, but anyway):

Magician Ricky Jay is auctioning off his collection of memorabilia.

https://www.sothebys.com/en/buy/auction/2021/the-ricky-jay-collection

Lots of interesting stuff going under the hammer. I feel a bit sad when collections like this are split up.

Little Paul - - Parent

Technically, he isn’t auctioning off his collection… he hasn’t done much of anything since he died in 2018! (Lazy sod)

Some very interesting stuff in there though. I wonder how much of it will get slurped up by copperfield and stashed away in his enormous warehouse

erik aberg - - Parent

I managed to buy a very large Cinquevalli poster from this auction. I had heard of its existence for a few years, but never knew if it was actually real. Supposedly it hung in Ricky's living room.

The Void - - Parent

Nice!

Orinoco - - Parent

That's pretty awesome! Where is it going to hang now?

erik aberg - - Parent

It will hang in my living room, I have cleared one wall for it!

ISTR there was a web resource created somewhere a few years ago for sharing helpful information about organising conventions.

If I'm right, can anyone point me to it? Specifically, if there's an index of recommended caterers for UK convention organisers, I recently discovered a Bristol-based caterer that I'd like to add to that list.

The Void - - Parent

It may have been part of the http://thebritishjugglingconvention.co.uk/ wiki. Which is currently broken, unfortunately. (Somebody poke somebody relevant, please.)
Or there was a UK Juggling Convention organisers group, but I can"t remember where. Maybe it was a Yahoo group, in which case that may have died recently too, unless it moved elsewhere?
More helpful answers are welcome... :-)

Mïark - - Parent

The wiki has been broken for a few months, poking attempts have been made by myself and others without success so far.
The yahoo group like many other yahoo groups has gone, I think Richard posted asking if anyone wanted anything saving.
There is a BJC: Behind The Scenes facebook group.

Mïark - - Parent

oh, there is also a Convention Organisers Skillshare Group on facebook

I believe Richard had an "organising a one day juggling convention" website but I can't find it now, I guess it might be a bit dated.

If you are just interested in the old content of the wiki, have a look at the archived version:

https://web.archive.org/web/20210227102107/http://thebritishjugglingconvention.co.uk/wiki/index.php?title=British_Juggling_Convention_Wiki

The Void - - Parent

Ah. Well, the front page of it is, anyway. Hopefully the rest will get fixed soon.... :-/

Danny Colyer - - Parent

Thanks for the replies.

I'll take a look at the FB groups. ISTR the wiki was something to do with Mini, who I haven't heard anything of for a loooong time.

Richard Loxley - - Parent

I believe there were two rival wikis, one dropped off the internet years ago, the other I think is currently broken.

Archives here:

https://web.archive.org/web/20100629042541/http://www.thebjc.org/onedayers/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

I wrote content for the latter, and retrieved it to republish here:

Jak - - Parent

Hmmm... it's almost like there should be a 'thing'.

There are at least 3 different FB groups regarding organising BJCs/other conventions. But none of them are anywhere near as useful as the wiki was (I though it was back but it turns out I've just got most of it cached on my pc already...)

Convention Organisers Skillshare Group
Flow\Juggling festivals\Conventions organizers from around the world
BJC: Behind The Scenes

But without a central something, word of mouth is going to be the most reliable way of informing future BJC orgs about possible caterers.

Leeds convention is confirmed for 27th November.
Obviously this is barring any new lockdown/regulations but looking good at present. It is in the same venue as recent years, St Mary’s school Menston LS296AE. The nature of the venue and convention are such that we will not be applying social distancing or mask wearing but we do ask everyone to be considerate of others and please do not attend if you are unwell on the day. Convention 10 am till 9 pm. Large juggling hall, tea room all day,please bring a mug, evening show. More details on Facebook as we have them. Am very much looking forward to seeing you all. Alice.

Good to hear it’s happening. The price for the ferry I used last time seems to have gone up 250%. Thanks, Brexit. Thanks, COVID.

Alice - - Parent

Sorry to hear that. The convention prices themselves will be at pre Covid rates,

Tufty -

Spent Sunday at the Swiss Juggling Convention in Geneva. First convention I've been to in *literally* 25 years (last one was Edinburgh in 1996), had a blast. Lots of fun, a good crowd and a very good level, some of the juggling was out of this world. Huge thanks to the organisers who have been trying to run this convention within covid restrictions for over a year now, and to all the volunteers involved in running it on the day - it was worth the effort, I think everyone had a good time. Especially the Italians.

Shame I couldn't make it for both days, though. I had some stupidity lined up for the open stage. Next time, I guess :)

Siteswap Explorer updates

Hi all. My iOS app Siteswap Explorer has had a few updates recently. Here’s a couple of videos of it in action. The first shows a quick run through of some of the app’s features, and the second focuses on the latest feature, which I’m giddily calling ‘Drag & Swap’.
