FDC2013 16. -18.8.2013.
« on: July 26, 2013, 03:38:46 pm »
FDC2013 will happen again for the 8th time in Eräjärvi, 16. -18.8.2013.

The one and only diabolo convention in Finland 2013 will be held again in the idyllic village school environment in Eräjärvi, Orivesi.

The 8th annual FDC will once again gather Finnish diabolo hobbyists and professionals together. The program includes workshops and performances from top performers in the field.

While waiting the FDC2013 to happen we will host few competitions that will happen at the festival. We announce first of these competitions now to give enough time for all you to participate.

2st. DIABOLO MOD CONTEST AT FDC2013
You will need to make your own diabolo from regular items. You are not allowed to use any real diabolo parts while making your own mod! (threaded bolts, nuts, and hardware washers are not counted to be unique diabolo parts).
Best diabolos will get prizes.

Rules:
- All entries must be submitted for judging at the event no later than 5:00 PM Friday, August 10th. Entries should be turned in at the registration desk
- Entries may be by proxy (Someone else can bring your diabolo, however the person entering the diabolo on your behalf must be familiar enough with the diabolo and it’s maker/modder to answer basic questions about the diabolo)
- All entries must be in a small bag or box and have the name, address, and e-mail if available of the person entering
- Written descriptions detailing the features of the diabolo are encouraged (if the judges can’t figure out what you’ve created, or all the important aspects thereof, it’s your fault, not the judges’ So make a list of all the parts, where did you get them etc.)
- The Diabolos will be judged in following criterias: Innovation and creativity (including creative use of materials), Quality, fit & finish, and visual & artistic appeal, not forgetting the Playability.


The idea of FDC is to offer Finnish diabolo hobbyists an opportunity to learn from the best and see new innovative diabolo juggling.  An event like FDC doesn’t exist anywhere else in Finland or Europe.

FDC is a festival-like convention that includes performances, workshops and obviously time together with friends. The event collects together hobbyists and professionals from all around the world to share tricks, ideas and thoughts. The event was organized for the first time in 2006 by Circus Supiainen. The location of the event is a small village in Western Finland called Eräjärvi, near the city of Orivesi.

The event culminates to an open high skill Diabolo! –gala show, which is traditionally hed on Sunday at 15.00. The diabolo gala has in recent years gathered much of the population of the village of Eräjärvi. About 100 of the 800 people living in Eräjärvi have attended the show. FDC is an important event for Eräjärvi.

During FDC an annual event called diabolothon is organized. The event combines athletics and diabolo and was created by the Finnish Diabolo Association in 2007.

And this year, like always, the event will be as massive mayhem as ever or even mayhemier than ever. Be there and Diabolo your life up. World's biggest diabolo will be there too, so just book your flights and join us in a event of your lifetime.
