What's your "Perfect Convention"
« on: July 19, 2005, 12:02:19 pm »
I was just wondering what your perfect convention would be for you.  It should look something like this:
Games:
Workshops:
Performers:
Shops:
Available equipment:
Special events:
We’ll assume the venue and weather is perfect and it is a really long day or a week long festival.(i.e. you could have more than 24 hours of things).

Bill.

First off all a big indoor hal, with a high ceiling.

Good parties, good people, lot`s of diaboloists and jugglers.
Good shops, good food, good renegade.

Weather, but that`s the thing no one can assure.

Off Topic Question: Can anyone explain "renegade" for me please, in context of conventions? I think it's like an end-of-convention show, but am not sure?

Not been good enough to warrant attending a convention, I couldn't say what my ideal one would be, but learning lots and being amazed watching the pros would be a good start.

Most conventions have a public show which (hopefully) is a well organised show with tickets.  A renegade started years ago (it was in the article I read about it) by the Renegade juggling lot who hosted an impromptu show with rewards of beer for entering.  You just go up and do whatever you want and hope for a good reaction, no need to be good, just original, or crazy (rocket poi in mind).
It was supposed to make fun of the stuck up IJA comps and thus has become a staple part of many conventions.
