All right it's contest time again in Finland. We are gathering to Joensuu for Diabolo national contest. Contest will be done outdoors in the main market square of the city of Joensuu. We have a big and good stage there. Contest days are from tuesday to friday. Also we have booked a complete hostel for us so that there's place for everybody to sleep. Event is organized by Finnish Diabolo Association, this year Samuli has pretty much done all the organizing work for us. Huge thanks for him.
Like before we everybody does 6 different freestyles and takes part in three smaller sports:
1. Most vertax gens in a minute (1D)
2. Most minigens in a minute (1D)
3. Most diabolos in the air longest (XD)
4. 1D 3min
5. 2D 3min
6. 3D 2min
7. 1D Vertax 3min
8. BD The bearing division 3 min
9. MD Monobolos and one cupped ones 2min
Who gets the most points overall wins the title of national champion. This year the contest will be tougher than ever since all the past champions are competing and defending their titles. Hopefully the talented younger guys don't chicken out since I'm personally looking forward for losing to people half of my age
So far there has not been a need to have international division since there has been no foreign people competing. If somebody comes you can compete in general division and you can even win everything. However we can give the title of Finnish Champion to a person who has Finnish nationality. Even Langerz doesn't count, we treat him like a Finn but due to some missing paperwork...
We are always more than happy to have visitors so if you have holidays and plan to fly in please contact me. There's a good chance that I can get you lifts from airport and maybe even free hostel onsite. If you want more info about the event just ask. Cheers.
