WJF diabolo comp anyone?

Tempei won't be there, none of the Frenchies will be there, most importantly Ryo won't be there, i'll be there but i'm not really feeling the diabolo comp.

So far it's.... William. Not a great comp if you ask me. Anyone going/entering?

I'm seriously considering entering next summer's competition, I just need to work out the scheduling with my summer employer.

I know I haven't put out a video yet,  but I think I'd do ok. It'd be tough to compete with William though. I hope there's a significant pool of entrants.

i think everyone should just boycott the diabolo comp until Jason pulls his head out of his ass.

without the MFP/Matt Hall/Yabe, the diabolo comp will be pretty lacking (IMO).

and until Jason stops considering diabolo an auxiliary prop, i don't diabolo (or cigar boxes for that matter) will be even close to where they were in 2004.

Tijn - WJF and IJA are too close together, and Ryo would rather do IJA, as he cant afford both. Also, Tempei spent all his earnings on WJF.

The problem is now that anyone who was going to compete in diabolo would have had to have ordered a uniform by now. Which is unlikely, so i don't see a diabolo comp happening this year unfortunately.

Shame. I always look forward to looking at the videos that come out of that. Know anything about the WJF in England next time round anyone? Any diabolo comp in that?

I am going to do my best to change their minds, but as of yet it seems that they are only planning on holding the Advanced comps.

I'm going to the WJF, though not competing.  Hopefully there will be other diaboloists there too?

This'll be my first convention, so anyone who wants to show me what exactly to do, would be appreciated.
