yah, most of the time they'll say that they dont actually know if/when the cheap ones will be available and that they dont know how many are available if they are on sale. So they'll give you the number of the actual train company you will be booking with.

Please note, you will have to book the tickets, but this can be done with your parents credit card very easily  :wink:

I'm sure they'll take my credit card too.  I'll phone up tommorow about the trains.

Super Saver Returns or the really cheap single tickets (Atlas, Axis, Saga or something) can be a steal if you're travelling far enough and book far enough in advance.  You'll have to catch the train you're supposed to at the time you're supposed to and sit where you're supposed to, but it's worth saving those pennies.  Also see if it's cheaper to use a Young Person's Railcard as well.  Sometimes it's cheaper to buy your ticket and the YPRC than the original ticket, and you have a Railcard for a year.  If your local train station has a good ticket desk, they can normally find the cheapest tickets for you.

Flying is occasionally a good option too.  Or Megabus it if it's going your way and you can stand coaches.

As I said on R.J, I'd really like to go, depending on how my missus feels at me not visiting her and running off to Kernow instead.

Hello

Last year only 8 jugglers entered the show. With still 3 months to go
before the BJC this year, 7 people have confirmed they want to perform and
3 are on the "maybe" list.

If you or anyone you know wants to take part in the competition, get in
touch soonish, or else the show might be too full to enter on the day:

luke@juggler.net

Also anyone under 21 can enter the best trick contest, even those who don't enter an act into the main show.


Have fun!
Luke

Luke, could you please put a list saying who is entering. I, Marc Cabry, will be entering myself. It will be the first BJC I will go to. I can’t wait  \:D/  . Will it matter that I have only been diaboloing for a little over a year :?: .
Thank you
Marc

How good do you need to be to enter?  Bit of a silly question , i know, but i've never been before and i'm not sure of the standard?  I wasn't thinking of diaboloing, but I can kinda juggle 7 balls?  good enough?

My understanding is any level as long as it is interesting/entertaining.

Now 9 acts have confirmed for the BYJOTY Show. The limit of acts in the show I want to limit at 10, or 11 at a push. One of these places I want to leave open for someone at the convention to enter, someone who hasn't had internet access or has otherwise been unable to get back to me.

If you want to enter now, your name will go on a reserve list, in case these hypothetical extra people don't exist, or to step in if someone else cancels.

Or maybe you can pay other competitors not to enter...

Sorry for this restriction, but the limit of entries has to be set somewhere, and first come first served is the fairest way I can see. Maybe if something like 10 more people want to enter I'll look into some kind of preliminary round (held in private) where the best 8 progress to a final. Neither way is perfect, I know, but I want to be as fair as possible to everyone, and yet still have a corking show.


Entries so far:
Norbi
Marc Cabry
Zack Turner
Joshua Turner
Chris Cabry
Matt Pang
Tom Derrick
Arron Sparks

iirc, last year the running order was mutually agreed among the competitors. I expect that if the same thing doesn't work out this time, then it'll be names-out-of-a-hat time to determine things.

Theres been a bit of an update and chatter about the BYJOTY on rec.juggling here.
Those with an interest in the comp might want to have a look.

I'm really looking forward to this years BJC and BYJOTY, I'm sorry that Jgherkin* wont be entering due to him leaving early but I'm glad that all the Norbi the 2 cups lads and Ginger Tom will be entering (not all in diabolo). Any others (Pete?) Dont forget there is also a best trick competition for those who dont want to enter an act.

If you havent allready made plans to attend the BJC do so now. Plenty of diaboloists (including Matt Hall and Ryo Yabe), workshops, cheap props and good times to enjoy and friends to make.

*hope you have something for open stage

there has been a update on the BYJOTY here
http://www.jugglingdb.com/news/article.php?id=%3C443e4345%240%24661%24bed64819%40news.gradwell.net%3E&thread=true&pos=0

 anyway Luke Burrage said in it

Hello,

Just a few things... There has been loads of interest in the BYJOTY show
this year. So much that a preliminary round will have to be held to decide
who takes part in the final competition. Hopefully this means a better
quality show for everyone, and seems to be making all the young jugglers
put in just that extra little effort into making their acts as great as
possible.

Some new awards on offer:

Charlie Holland, producer of the Crawley Juggling Convention Public Show
has offered to sponsor the "Crawley Convention Award". This consists of
two passes for the Crawley Convention, plus £100 expenses, plus a place in
the main show on Saturday 12th August. The Crawley award is the second
convention sponsored award after the Nottingham BJC 2007 organisers
(Peachi and Martin) offered a place in their Public Show for another of
the finalists.

The BJC2k representitives (Rob, Mike and Lorri) have made some funds
available to give every competitor a special BYJOTY2006 tshirt. The
designs will be finalised over the next two days and give to all the young
jugglers during the show.


Thanks to everyone who has supported the event so far, though more help is
needed on the night to make sure the show runs smoothly.

More news over the next few days, and who knows, maybe even some more
videos.

Luke Burrage


hope this is helpfull

Chris Cabry

Well, since this thread has been bumped anyway, I might as well point out that the posturing has begun....
