I got back last night at 4 am after the pub and party.

I really enjoyed it and it was great to meet new people from the forum. I can't remember seeing so many diaboloists at a non national convention, it was really good.

The show was great as well, great juggling and two great diabolo acts by Barnesy and Donald Grant. GbH did a lovely yo yo routine as well.

I have never seen Donald Grant diabolo before so that was a real pleasure. He has a great style and stage presence. He says when he gets his computer sorted out he hopes to check out the forum as he has been hearing a lot about it.

I cant wait to see what Mattf, Barnesy and Luke filmed and I am looking forward to Bradford next Saturday.

Yes, it was a great day.  It was really good to see so many people working on two and three diabolos, and nice to meet more forum members.  

I have the whole show on video, but the quality is pretty bad, as the exposure seems to be all wrong.  I'd be interested to see a better copy if you have one, Matt F.
