Anybody live in Houston, TX?????
« on: June 17, 2009, 05:59:44 pm »
Guys, I started learning diabolo in south Louisiana and moved to Houston three years ago.  Besides one girl I went to college with who was from Tiawan, I have never met anyone who could do more than basic tricks.  I'm teaching some kids at my apartment complex, but I need someone I can learn from.  If anyone lives in or around Houston, please let me know.  Maybe we can start a team.

Thanks,

Jason

Seriously, guys.  Does anyone live in Houston???

According to the last census, approximately 2.2 million people live in Houston (see here)

So, question answered?

As for juggly stuff, have you checked IJDB for groups? There are a few in Texas, but this is the only one I've found for Houston: Antigravity Research Club

OK Duncan, you got me there.   :-D  I should have worded the question differently.

Yes, I searched high and low for diaboloists.  The only thing I could find was a couple of outdated listings on the internet.  Any attempt to call or contact the individuals was futile.

I guess I'll just keep practicing and teaching others.

Thanks,
Jason

This is byfar the most annoying thing for me. I live in the milwaukee area and there are no juggling clubs/conventions anywhere near me

Thank you, The Void, for the thread.  I emailed the guy but haven't heard back.

Egad!, you're right.  I would've just thought that with a couple million people around Houston, someone would diabolo.  I guess the only thing we can do is teach others and learn the best we can from this forum and conventions.

Thanks,

Jason
