I've been meaning to do a customisable juggling convention packing list for years. That can go on the after BJC to do list!

Little Paul - - Parent

I see no mention of beer or tea.

Lorri - - Parent

Tea is being provided free of charge by Yorkshire Tea this year so no need to bring any unless you want some in your tent rather than the main building.

No hot water bottle?

Orinoco - - Parent

I try to have a hot shower before bed, I find that does the trick.

Yay for free tea!

The Void - - Parent

This is all very well, but I'm hearing no talk of Yorkshire Coffee... :(

Lorri - - Parent

The caterers will sell coffee (and tea if you can't be bothered to walk to the main building).

Jak - - Parent

At #BJC2013 Beer will be provided by the LAZY JUGGLERS in the Bar tent at very reasonable prices along with tea and coffee on self service tap, with a 'pay what you want' honesty box. (The teabags were free but BJC is giving you hot water, milk, sugar and coffee too. So why not chip in 5p/50p a cup or a couple of quid once and help yourself the rest of the week).

The Bar is being run by jugglers so BJC keeps the profits so why not pack light and leave the beer at home. With the tea.

Mentioning hot water. BJC will be providing hot water for water bottles, small or large, for when you go to bed so don't forget to bring one, or two...

Mentioning warm and cosy. Despite being in a field, the Bar will have SOFAS courtesy of Dove House Hospice.

Hooray for coffee! Splendid news, thanks.

Little Paul - - Parent

Also "GAH! Hoopy is a *noun* not a verb. Why does everyone get this WRONG"

Little Paul - - Parent

Also "GAH! Why did I say verb when I meant adjective."

Orinoco - - Parent

& frood?

Pre-reg confirmation should be on the list too.

The Void - - Parent

Because they don't sass how swuttingly belgium it is.

emilyw - - Parent

My packing list this year notably includes my no juggling clubs and my no tent. I have managed to pre-order both my beer and my tea.

Orinoco - - Parent

As a Dune Chronicles fanatic I can understand the no-tent to hide your bedtime activities from prescient watchers but no-clubs to hide your juggling?!

emilyw - - Parent

As I'm staying in Chunk's tent, I expect the "bedtime activities" to be limited to hot water bottle filling.

Orinoco - - Parent

I thought everyone was staying in Chunk's tent?

emilyw - - Parent

I believe that's the case, yes. We will all be filling our hot water bottles together.

Topper - - Parent

I have a list that I use every year but had forgotten notebook and pen.
A few things you haven't got on your list. Pegs, carpet for tent and cash for buying me a drink.

Orinoco - - Parent

I have pegs in with the cutlery, yeah I might buy you a drink or two.

Would that gas stove happen to use this sort of canister: ?

I'm asking because I'd like to take my burner for those sorts of canisters, but I don't want to (probably can't) fly with a gas canister, so was wondering how I'd safely get rid of a probably not empty bottle after the convention.

Orinoco - - Parent

Unfortunately not.

DavidCain - - Parent

Thanks a ton for including the Nikita clubs and the sing for me. I really, really appreciate it.
David Cain

DavidCain - - Parent

That should have read "sign".

Orinoco - - Parent

...but works so much better as "sing"!
