Nah, I think I'll be moving further away than that!

I might be able to make it sometimes if you start another club though.  Yours finishes about 15 minutes before the earliest time I could manage to get there!

I wanna live in a country that is exactly like sweden but have southern italy winters but swedish summers.

The greenhouse effect will probbably fix that in a coupple of years...
If not, marry an aussie girl and spend half the year down there... Sounds like a nice idea to me

Thats the spirit. Move to Australia.  We have LOTS of warm weather and plenty of wide open spaces. I was diaboloing out in the simpson desert (Alice Springs region) threw the diabolo up and saw an eagle cirling over head.  Oh, yeah- australia is also one of the countrys that eats there native animals. mmm kangeroo!

Indoors is extra bad, when you are the father of two kids.

Can't hardly diabolo when they're awake, can't diabolo when they're napping or you might wake them up.

However, I'm glad to be done with the southern humidity for awhile, it causes my backwraps to bind up.

Mitchelljuggles you missed out one important thing: Australia is the only country where you can kill and eat the national emblem.

Don't realy blame you Barnesy Ellesmere Port is a squalid Hell-hole.

There's a restaurant near me which has kangaroo, and ostrich, and wild boar, and springbok and zebra.  2 down, 4 more to go...

Weather is really getting me down. :cry:  My 3 high practice has come to a complete standstill (which is probably a good thing because i have been trying it for more than a year and a half and still can't do more than 9 catches...maybe i need a break) i'm getting genocide withdrawal symptoms and my string has broken. I can practice  in my living room but no genocides, minamal body combos, no high, and i mustn't damage anything. And there is no where to do high practice around here for free in wet weather. I could rent out the village hall bet even then its not really high.

The problem with Australia is its TOO HOT! I like the summers here because it never get ridiculously hot like in Australia. IF i did a 4 hour practice sesson there like i do in the summer i'd just collapse in a big half melted heap.
Or what about convention's. THe last one i went to here i did solid diabolo for 10 hours witha ten minute lunch break and breif toilet breaks. If i did that in Australia i would probably have a heart atack or something like that.

The weather at the mo is rubbish, in my opinion its not allowed to be cold unless it brings plenty of rain with it for a good kayaking season, paddling the dart loop the other day was rubbish! I've never seen so little water!  Maybe I'll just move out to the alps and a nice constant glacier/dam release...

O and as for diabin, just do it indoors, my main practise space for the last 3 years has been my room, weather doesn't really make a difference there.  I only get a juggling club to go to every other week, and even then most of the time it seems to be the same height as my room, just more space for socialising, fingers crossed they'll let us in the nice space for the rest of the year.  [-o<

I can't diabolo in my house. So all I've got is juggling club and the occasional lunchtime at school. Its starting to get a bit blustery which means its getting even worse for diaboloing especialy with 2.

sharpe in your library o.0  man what would happen if I tried... lol...  My school stinks for indoor high practice.  I can barely get 3's inside...  I have a high 2 high pattern so my 3's get higher and higher and we've hit the ceiling before (mithew with his handsticks  8) )  anyways... do it in the cold and brave nature :D

no comment (except that the ceiling wasn't damaged in the slightest, and i haven't tried it again) I'm lucky in that i can do diabolo inside my house, (big living room), but i'm not allowed to try 2 high (the one time i tried, i hit the piano...)
EDIT: now i'm really not allowed to do 2 high in house, i tried it once just to see how it would work...came within a foot of hitting my sister.

I allways diabolo indoors, i have about three meters square to work with and theres only one angle where theres no chance of hiting things. the widow next to where i do it is now cuvered in rubber marks from when i miss.
The trick is to have a stupidly short string. mine is currently just over a meter long

AArg, when you think the winter is over, there comes spring. Today it is 15 degrees Celcius here, but there is sooo much wind. I can't even keep a normal shuffle going outside because everything gets completely blown away. Now I am sitting here, in my room, looking out the window on a great green field of grass, bathed in sunlight but I can't diabolo properly outside. It really freaks me out.
some people think they are better because they can do something better

I know how you feel Frank, the weather is great, but the wind is just driving me crazy! I wanted to film some stuff for the tutorial and other ****, but that's not very do-able with this wind. Aaargh!
