Flash. Got it 3 times, but only the first of those was all handles.

6 catches. Got it once, but the last two throws were on the wrong side of each other. Still caught them with the right hand, though.

passing, 75 minutes

(With S)

5-count popcorn with tricks/variations. Finally got 3.5p2345 (or pass 2 3 4 5) to kind of work on my side, at least for a few rounds, with S doing the base pattern (to better catch my bad passes). (Using 6784a as a practice pattern for 6789a.)

56789, have only tried this briefly last week. Not easy, but might be doable with a few more hours of practice. I messed up a lot, often throwing a zap when I was supposed to do my heff.

972, got a couple of rounds, I know S wants to practice 978 so it would be good to get this one solid.

Tried 990 briefly, but we were not sure we had found the right start. Or, well, S said it didn't work on his side, so we probably hadn't. Will try to figure it out until next time.

552... No, this doesn't work, can't be bothered with this pattern.

5 balls, 12 minutes

Flash. Until I had got it 10 times,

6 catches. Until I had got it 10 times.

10 catches... Trying for 5 minutes, but I didn't even manage to do 10 throws. Oh well. Maybe next time. I have done this before.

6789a vs Why Not. We made some progress with S on the difficult side, but I cheated the Why Not side and did hold self instead of heff zip. With me trying to do the difficult side, we didn't get far.
6784a vs 5-count popcorn, an easier practice pattern for me that I have tried as a trick in 5-count popcorn before. With this at least I made some progress. Those triples are not easy, though. I often do 45123 as a solo pattern, but I think I might be moving around a bit when I do it, which doesn't really work while passing.
56789, just a quick attempt, this should be easier than 6789a.

Well, time to leave.

3 clubs, 25 minutes

Very nice weather, too bad it gets dark so soon. Summer is over, this might have been the last outdoor juggling of the year. Or if it is still warm next week we might juggle torches.

Warm up

52512
55500

teaching, 1 minute

A family watched us juggling. We asked if they wanted to try, and they all did. (Well, the youngest didn't know what was going on, but he liked to take the balls.)

I didn't spend that much time on teaching, just a few minutes, but we were many jugglers today so I think they got enough instructions.
