Hello, Raleigh jugglers here! We welcome jugglers of all skill levels and skill and have been meeting without interruption since the early 1980s. IJA membership not required but encouraged :-)
Due to the Martin Luther King Holiday, we will be meeting January 21, 2020 (Tuesday) same time, otherwise we meet every Monday.

Wow! That's some staying power.
That is pretty impressive, which made me wonder which was the oldest juggling club.
Only a fifth of the 955 active juggling clubs listed on Juggling Edge have given their start date (or "Established date")
The oldest is Santelli in Netherlands which was established in 1962.

Top Ten Oldest Juggling Clubs listed on Juggling Edge
Seven of the ten oldest clubs are in US, this might be due to amateur juggling clubs starting earlier in the US, US clubs being better at recording their start dates or more US clubs listing themselves on Juggling Edge.
[Incidentally, the Juggling Edge listing for North Carolina State Juggling Club says they were established in 1992 not the early 1980s - so that might need changing or the date checking.]
I'm not certain if people have been meeting at Santelli for juggling that long, I'll met a bunch of Santelli regulars last weekend but didn't know I needed to ask this, haha! Will do next time I run into them :)
It's a youth circus with a long history indeed, the date is the origin date of the youth circus.
Oops! Was looking at the wrong data.
Only a fifth of the 955 juggling clubs listed on Juggling Edge have given their start date (or "Established date"), but half of the active clubs have a start date.

Hmm, the established date of #Altern8 seemed to have disappeared. I've just put it back (year only). Should this date be visible on the club's page? 'Cos it's not.
