How do I do the cup stacking feet challenge?

How do I juggle three balls blindfolded?

7b_wizard - - Parent

Seeing, get a very small and stable pattern first. Then, put your attention to and focus on altogether hands' movement and the portion of thrust given and on the throwing angle only. Then either close eyes while juggling, or start entirely blindfold from launch. [ #blindfold ]
Have you tried yet?

greenac30824 - - Parent

Yes, I got lots of blindfolds and sleep masks and stuff! I going to try it

Hi Jon/Orinoco!
I hope you are reading it.

I created the Budapest (Hungary) Juggling Wednesday event on your site. Unfortunately, I gave a link to the front page. Since it's pretty useless for the ones who are interested in our Wednesday's club, we created a specific page only for this. Could you change the link to https ://tua .hu/juggling- wednesday-zsonglor-szerda/ ? I added spaces to the URL to avoid link spamming.

The page still needs some formatting (and content and media and proper English), but at least it's already useful for jugglers who visit Budapest.

Thank you!

Hi Bálint,
Welcome to the Edge. If you created the club listing, you should be able to edit it yourself. Scroll to the bottom of the page for an "Edit this club" link, and you can fix the URL yourself.

Hi The Void,
that's great! Thank you. It's done.
I guess I should have used the 'Meta talk' forum for this... Every day I get smarter.

This looks like it could be a lot of fun

I like that net as prop-glove-basket-multitool.

Have you seen Tony Pezzo's video Fake Sports? There is lots of net-involved juggling there.

7b_wizard - - Parent

Yeah, I remember that, the bits in the trailer. It's great!

Daniel Simu - - Parent

Tony Pezzo wrote the routine for the net juggling in TBTBToo!

7b_wizard - - Parent

? what is it?

Daniel Simu - - Parent

I don't know what the routine is, I have not seen the show yet. Arron and Owen commissioned Tony to write an act for them using the nets...

7b_wizard - - Parent

ah, ok. thx.

7b_wizard - - Parent

I also now figured, if the ring of the net were bigger and the handle very short, it'd also be somewhat of a ring.

Milton Keynes Juggling Convention #MKJC

Just spotted on facebook:

The school have made it impossible to do the event there. They cancelled, rebooked, and double booked. They kicked us out of the stage hall and finally told us last minute that we cannot serve tea or hot food.

As you can imagine we simply can't believe what's happened but we are all in agreement: The show must go on!!!

So we need to relocate tomorrow to 20 Burners Ln S, Kiln Farm, Milton Keynes MK11 3HB

It is incredibly difficult to get this to reach everyone on my own so I plead with you to share to your friends personal inboxes and your own walls to make sure no one is made to travel to the old location. Please bring a coat!

Daniel Simu - - Parent

Thanks for the heads up :o

Cedric Lackpot - - Parent

What the shuddering feck? Seriously? What on earth is going on at the school? They need a short, sharp lesson in humility.

I was planning to go but had an epic pig of a day and was too tired - I can only imagine the volcanic rage if I'd turned up there.

For a last-minute venue, that looked really nice :-)

Well done to the organisers for a great recovery.

Tom Derrick - - Parent

From a punter's perspective it appeared to run smoothly, which was remarkable given the venue issue. Well done MKJC organising team for getting that venue sorted in such a short time!

Daniel Simu - - Parent

It was a pleasure to meet you there Tom :). Happy balancing!

It's Him - - Parent

It helped that I already had a space in the building. Made finding the location easier. The place would be better with the heating fixed but wasn't horrendous. The available space may be increased a bit by next year if we have to do it there again.

Towards the end of November for about 2 weeks (23rd Nov - 7th Dec) we will be selling tickets for EJC 2019 for £125. In preparation we are sharing 42 reasons why the European Juggling Convention in Newark on Trent UK will be something not to be missed.

42 reasons ? Well it is the 42nd EJC!

If you are facebooker then you may have seen these posts already over the last week, so swipe on by, but if not I didn't want you to feel left out.

Our first reason: Our venue is awesome! Take a peep at our 'look at the site' film we made this summer

reasons 2,3 & 4 are all about Camping!
2. Amazing camping space! As you saw from the aerial pics in our film on Saturday the site is beautiful and green and flat!
3. Awesome cooking and washing up facilities. We loved the spaces in Almere and we will have them at Newark too!
4. Electric Hook-up.... Not something that everyone will want, but lovely if you are coming in a live in vehicle. For an additional charge you will be able to book a hook up pitch. These will be limited to certain areas. More details as we get them finalised!

5. History.. Yeah we have lots of history around these parts and if you fancy a day off site for a look around the area there are lots of interesting places to choose from.
Nottingham, Southwell, Lincoln, Newark, (everyone talk about.. pop muzik.... ! hmm doesn't quite fit - and I suspect you are all too young to remember this song anyway!!)

These next few all about the Western Arts workshops - which for those new to EJC are free to attend as workshops are all included in the cost of ticket.
6. We have a super enthusiastic group of Western Arts specialists who are making awesome plans for the provision of extensive workshops. Check out their little promo video below
7. They will be providing Knife Throwing & Archery workshops every day with knives you can borrow so no need to bring your own if you are travelling light from abroad.
8. Whip workshops and competitions taught and judged by world class whippers! (is that the right term?!!)
9. Gun Slinging & Lasso workshops everyday, again with props you can use fully supervised.

Next lot next week

A little a year ago I bought the cheapest juggling balls I could find, the duncan original juggling bean bags. I like them but after being dropped many time they are on their last leg and I want to buy new ones. Do you guys have any suggestions of brands or specific balls.
My buget is $30 for 6 balls so only $15 per set.

Also I was thinking about buying rings someone recommended halo rings also there are 3 sizes 24cm, 32cm and 40cm. How does the size effect how it juggles?
Please any input would be helpful

Daniel Simu - - Parent

Beanbags are best felt before you buy. I'm not sure which cheaper brands are available in the US, here I would look for some Mister Babache probably for that budget.
For 30$ you're never going to get great beanbags, but if you're near a good vendor/maker you might get some good play-pit russians for that money!
For 5 years now I've been juggling balls from Play, the last 3.5 years I spent together with Sil-x Light. I must have used that set (but not every single ball) for nearly 1000 hours by now, and they show no sign of wear at all.

We have moved venues, we have found 'Fair Close Day Centre' with a lovely (if rather pink) hall, a tea area and affordable rates.
For those without a car- Good news! We are now only 5 minutes walk from Newbury Train station.

Come join us, 7pm till 9pm. £5 or £3 concessions. All welcome!

John R - - Parent

What day of the week? I would love to think it was all seven days but it seems unlikely.

The Void - - Parent

Clicking the hashtag Lizzy gave will give you a link to the club - - which tells you that it's on a Monday.
