I shall be there from the Friday, possibly juggling, possibly not.  But I will be sleeping in my car, camping is far too uncivilised for my liking.

A workshop, in this case, is a short (usually an hour slot is reserved) teaching slot given by (usually) one person in a particular type of trick. Examples might be "Club passing for beginners", "4 ball tricks" or *ahem* perhaps "yo-yo inspired diabolo tricks". ;-)

Dave (the guy Zack quoted) is asking for volunteers to run any kind of circus skill workshop they fancy. There will usually be quite a wide range on offer - but only if people volunteer. Don't worry if you've never run a workshop before - it's all very informal. Just think of it as "showing some people how to do a few tricks", if you like.

I'll most likely be there.

After the Kettle of Fish show on the Saturday night, the fire show follows afterwards so indeed, plenty of opportunity for fire if you so wish.  After that it's the Renegade.

There isn't much night time in these here parts and since it's only Friday and Saturday night, you may need to think how much equipment you want to bring.  I must say I'm struggling with some new props to fit them all in my bag.

Same. Can only just fit all my normal diabolo stuff in so no room for fire unfortunately.

The convention was amazing, and im in the process of making of video of some of the things i filmed when i was there, i loved performing in the main show and the show its self was great, a good vairity of acts and great tallent.
it was nice to meet Pete and Chiok who are both really nice guys and meet lots of other diaboloist aswell(they were nice too)
i lernt a cupple of new tricks at the convention, my faviorte probbebly feed the sun but it is not solid yet onlyjust managed to do it for the first time at crawley.
only downside was the weather but that didnt stop me having a great convention.

Nice to meet you too Zack, and Marc, Josh and Chris as well.  Don't forget holding your first workshops, they went down quite well I think and people learnt some new things.  The most important thing was that you were patient with people and addressed everyone's questions.  Diabolo is a tricky workshop to hold unless it's on something specific like "2D shuffle" or "Suicides".  Good meeting Pete too, he really is quite damn good at high and low patterns.  Grrr... young'uns.

Zack's performance in the show was awesome too, a flawless 3D section with tricks and pretty good since not being a seasoned performer.  A bit more work on the other factors of performance (stage presence, applause etc.) and it'll be a great act.  No handsticks up sleeves either.

Everyone's getting so good and things can only get better.  Shame about the lack of indoor space though, and the windy rain.  I did learn wrapped minigenocides, and a funky over the arm thing from Pete.

Bring on Bristol...
