Belfast Juggling Convention 2016 - Report
« on: February 15, 2016, 08:41:44 pm »
So sitting on the train home after a flight from Belfast, I figured I might as well do the old "High - Low - Goal - Crush - Bane" thingy.

Highs:
      - A great venue for the convention, and a great place to stay during closed hours
      - Stayed in Ireland for 5 days without experiencing rain even once
      - Met Graham and even got to jam with him a bit even though he was running around being an important organizer
      - Smoking close to a million cigarettes with Tim Schulze
      - Managed to not drown myself in Guinness and Buckfast completely
      - Improved on both my 7 balls and 4 diabolo hover start!
      - The whole freakin galla show
      - Meeting a lot of Irish diaboloists I had never heard about before

Lows:
      - Completely missed out on the sunday's games and fight night tournament due to sleeping late
      - Renegade ended too early for me to demonstrate my 30 minute routine of props taped together
      - Being asked about 40 times if I was performing in the galla show, but having to tell people that it was Tim who was performing

Goals:
      - Actually try to progress and get a bit of motivation to practice juggling and diabolo further... Check!
      - Don't drink myself into the state of not being able to juggle due to hangovers... Semicheck!
      - Attend a workshop... a very "devilstickdiaboloing at the same time" check!
      - Don't scare people away from being interested in the Danish Juggling Convention next year... Check?

Crushes:
      - The handsome German phenomenon that is Tim and his galla show act
      - Julian Sæthers 7 ball 7 up 360 and 9 ball flash on stage
      - Lewis Kennedy and Jon Peat passing... need I say more?

Bane:
      - The renegade ending so very very early due to the venue having to close down

All in all a fantastic convention, and I'll be happy to come to Ireland again sometime!

It looks like it is a very nice sized convention, with great atmosphere. Graham, killer skills doing the video. Yeah!
