Finding Diaboloists

Hi,

I'm quite new here, but I've put up my introduction on the introduce yourself page http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=8&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=375.

I did do a quick search before hand, but I was wondering if there is any method of finding other Diaboloists in your area.  I mainly ask this because I have heard rumours that there may be a 3d Diaboloists near me, but I am struggling to find him.  I run the Juggling Club at my university http://zope.stu.uea.ac.uk/juggling and I'm quite keen on finding out who this guy is and getting him to come along.  He may, or may not, be a member of the university, but lives in the Norwich (UK) area.  I believe he may be Oriental as well!  Anybody any ideas?

Cheers,

Guy

I'd say the first way you all ready know, get along to your nearest juggling club.
Listings can be found on www.jugglingdb.com.

Going to conventions/running your own convention (hint, hint), listings again on IJDB. may I sugest Chocfest or Nottingham Fundango?

thirdly making sure you have your location filled in so that it appears when you post. I have PMed people who live near in the past so that can work.

The Diabloloist I think is most likely talking about if you are Norwich based would be Tempei. If you PM me some details I'll pass them on for you. He might be unaware of your club.

Thanks for the swift reply Seán :D !

I've put my location up now, so I hope some people will find me!

I did have a discussion about running a convention in Norwich, and there are some amazing facilities on campus here, including a 20,000 sq ft hall, an international running track, an olympic swimming pool (which could be a laugh) and a 500 seater lecture theatres.  However, I just don't have the time to organise it myself.

It would be amazing if we could get Tempei to come along.  I cannot seem to work out whether he is a student or not, but I'm guessing not.  A few of our members are on 2d stuff, so he'd be pretty useful (we may even be able to pay him a little to give a workshop!).  I see from the video he does a bit of ball stuff as well, and we have a few 7 ball jugglers at the club, so I think he'd be in good company.  Our website is http://zope.stu.uea.ac.uk/juggling if he'd like to get in touch or just come along (doesn't matter if he isn't a student).
