So, whos up for summer WJF of 06?
« on: May 26, 2006, 11:12:05 pm »
Hey diabolo.ca, since this hasnt been posted before(i think), I was wondering, are any of you guys gonna enter the wjf this summer or plan to go to that convention? So far it seems like only william is in it as a diabolo competitor, it would be great to see others go as well. I was thinking of going, but not if it is only Will there since I want to meet more than 1 diaboloist I havent met before. Hopefully there will be more contendors, and it could be fun.
Go Draco with your Diabolo!

[thread hijack] room/travel buddy for WJF?
« Reply #3 on: May 28, 2006, 05:40:02 pm »
Hey y'all. Sorry for not writing a load, but its impossible to find the
net here, and i cant stay long, so i'll keep it short.


As a minor :-( I have to share my room with someone at WJF, this would
also make the stay cheaper for the both of us :-)
I will be staying on the nights of the 1st-6th (leaving on the morning of
the 7th) If anyone is interested in my being my roomie, drop me an e-mail
(because by the time i get online again, this topic will have disappeared)
and if you want to travel with me, do the same www.aa.com was the best i
found, if you want to check some prices)

Look forward to hearing from one (or loads :-P ) of you.

N


p.s. Circus is going well, the show is pretty good, nice acro nice
trapeze, nice juggling,great crew, great fun. Not a very nice tent though,
suprisingly small and soft gymnastic mat flooring, so if anyone was
expecting me to come back amazing.... dont get your hopes up. Peace out,

N again

So what happened for anyone who went?  How was everything? I just checked the site and there haven't been any updates yet.  

The 2005 disc is also out too.

People that were there tell your story here! The more in detail the better ^^

well i went and since i wasnt competing jason asked me to help judge the competition

so yeah i was the only judge which was kind of weird but w/e

1st place william with his usual awesomeness
2nd place ting
3rd place was very close between norbi and patty but in the end patty got it

and then in last place with a score of 0 Carey Pickford Jr. who had one of those mini diabolos and obviously no idea how to use a it ... jason cut him off less than a minute into his act

other than the competition it was basically me alex and willam's group just hanging out and showing each other some tricks

Cor blimey, I should go to these WJFs, perhaps I could judge one of these comps ;-)  Shame it's such an overlooked competition despite it's great success the first year, was there even a cigarbox competition?

Still, at least it gets some time, and details would be appreciated.

Aha, so it was close, that's good to know. She had a really bad time on stage, although she did some cool stuff, she dropped A LOT. Without wanting to sound too ****y, i was disappointed that she beat me.

Ting was so amazing! William had some crazy cool choreographed powerful bits, so cool.

Oh, and i got beaten in rings by Wes, by like 0.2
It was a  good comp.

that quote made me laugh a lot, like all of the sudden, there were no new tricks, until a convention and people met together, and it was kind of like creation in the bible, and MAN RECEIVED NEW DIABOLO TRICKS!!!

ya know, i bet you could make a video out of tricks that people do and think they're boring, but they would be new, amazing, and outstanding to you. you know what i mean? around the world, there are so many different styles and things going on...and they don't always go to video. if you met up with someone from somewhere in the world, i'm sure you could both show each other a thing or too. hell, every once in a while i've shown Matt Hall a thing or two, which really surprises the crap outta me.

Oh for real? I thought i only had 2, and i remember her messing up more. But i guess you were watching harder. Her finish was one of the coolest endings i have ever seen.

I was just looking at the wjf page and I say a "Carey Pickford Jr" who was "disqualified".  Why? o.0

Also some diaboloists might not go on diabolo.ca so people from diabolo.ca go and see the trick and they bring it back here and show the rest of us so man has a new diabolo trick  :?

From what i have gathered from Gatto's forum (juggling talk.)He did a few very basic diabolo trick's and acted like and idiot and was taken of half way through his peformance.

Here's the linkhttp://anthonygatto.forumco.com/topic~TOPIC_ID~3083~whichpage~4.asp

Because the diabolo competitions did not have preliminaries like the other comps, Carey took advantage of this and entered with a tiny diabolo.  It was somewhat of a mockery, not sure if that was his intention, but if you know of Carey Pickford Jr, then maybe.

Just goes to show that you do need some sort of weeding process, or you'll just end up with flowers in the wrong place.
