Hi everyone!

I'm getting excited about the Scottish Juggling Festival, being as it's my first time to Scotland and all.  

I know Barnesy's (sp?) going to make it.  Anyone else?  

The festival organizers have asked me to do workshops, and rightly so, since they're footing the bill to get me there, so....

What workshops would you like to have?  

I was thinking about doing an excallibur workshop but there's loads more we could do as well. Any thoughts?

Cheers,

Matt
Many Thanks to Sean for all his work and inspiration.  Respect to the MFP!

I've never tried excalibur stuff - sounds good though.   It would be nice to do something a bit different.

Do you actually mean a scottish convention or do you mean the british?

I will be at BJC, i'd love an excaliber, i cant get it at all. But that a few months away, so u are probably not talking about it already.

i think that us Leeds lot are coming to it if we can arrange transport.

I am just getting the hang of excalibur, but only basic stuff, i cant do any tricks to go with it.  :oops: would be nice if Matt could teach me some tricks to go with it  :D

Yeah, he means the Scottish, Norbi.  The one at the start of Feb, not the BJC.

I just read that on rec.juggling one minute ago.

What the F@#$k????!!!!!!

I sent Graham an e-mail as well.  We'll see what he says.  

This is lame in the extreme, more so because I had to find out on rec.juggling.  weak........  :evil:  :(  :cry:

Ugh.

I can't believe they've done that.   Especially without even telling you.  Crazy.

Can anyone confirm that this "Charles O Donoghue" is the real deal?

It just seems a little over the top for them to go about it like that.

I spoke to Mini before I posted that, he tends to have his ear to the ground.

Pretty lame to find out that way Matt. I assume they wanted to get the word out quick (or somebody decided the juggling world needed to find out quickly before the organisers got a chance to tell the people from the show).

Yeah, we know Charles, and I'm certainly confident in him.  He wasn't the main organiser though.  If he's posting that, I can only imagine the main organisers have pulled out.  People had suggested running a convention up there so close to running the British was a bad idea.

Okay, so....as y'all might have seen on rec.juggling, the Scottish Juggling Festival is back on.  Graham just e-mailed me with essentially the same message that he posted to rec.juggling.  

So, I'm coming over for a bit, come hell or high water.  


So, back to our original topic--how about an excallibur workshop and maybe a 2 diabolo workshop?

Matt

Today's my 35th birthday and getting the Scottish back on track is definitely a good gift.

Hey Mini!

Don't sweat it brother. No need to apologize. You can make it up to me by being at the Scottish and buying me a pint.  What do you say? :D

Sleeping at the Scottish convention
« Reply #31 on: January 18, 2005, 09:58:18 am »
There is no camping. Crash space is provided for everyone, all in the same place. There are various halls to sleep in, as well as many corridors, steps, kitchens and landings. Just bring a sleeping bag and mat and you'll be fine.

Also some meals are provided, and you can use the kitchen to work out other eating options.

I'd recomend taking alcohol with, as the local area is not the nicest especially when you realise there is only 20 mins to go before closing time.

Graham Benson anounced on rec.juggling that Donald Grant (of the diabolo books fame) will also be performing at the Scottish as well as holding a workshop.
