Hahaha. That's a good one. Best of luck getting it down. (If the people are gone, I doubt it would hurt the tents.)

Wait is it that thing all the way up in the tree!? Haha wow that sucks.

A story for me with vertax genocides and string snaps:
Last year at the BAC (Bay Area Classic Yoyo Contest) in California, I was hanging out w/ some famous yoyo stars and showing them how much more awesome the diabolo is. I did a few vertax genocides, and on one of them my string snapped, metal handstick went flying and hit probably one of the most famous yoyo stars (Paul Han) in CA smack right in the stomach. Wasnt on purpose, but I suppose I showed them the "thrills" of the diabolo a little too well... I apologized though, and he said it was alright. Good thing it didnt pierce through someone'e eye!

And yeah, because of this I always check my string before performing and doing this trick.
Go Draco with your Diabolo!

I've had some very close shaves with vertax genocides at my juggling club. Many times have I had a stick fly at eye level about a foot away from some kids.

I never perform that trick with anyone near me and I always give a warning out as well.
Sideways is rubbish
