A LOT. Don´t feel buyers remorse though. How could you go wrong with Diabolo equipment?

Haven´t bought anything yet this year except one roll of yellow henrys string, but new sticks, string and some of those cool, strange taiwanese Diabs are on my wanted list (goes to take a look at chinese sites ;))

I believe it's possibly an arts bursary or a local council grant for art skills that he's applied for and apparently secured which sounds great.  Never underestimate the amount of money that will be thrown at cultural activities, if you don't feel bad about taking money from other areas of society.... ;-)

I applied for a grant from a little known part of the government which deals with youth and community events.  You can apply aslong as you have the backing of a school or equal (and your young but i think that goes without saying since its for the "youth").  I'm not quite sure of all the details because my mum did it all for me while i was doing exams and coursework.  I applied for £3,000 and ended up with £1,900 (they do this each time so just over calculate your costs and you're sorted).  I'll find out more info on it when i can be bothered to and when im not on school hols because its time to party now!!

Did you have to do a little demo or something to show them what it was and if you were any good?

Nope not one bit.  But there are conditions which need to be met within the grant.  For me - my group needs to work towards an end performance on the stage in our town park at a yearly music event (conveniently organised by my mum).  Also i need to document via video and/or pictures the progression made by people attending the club.  They basically need to know if it was a worthwhile use for the money.

grants are great if you have a good reason for one. im trying to get a school i work at to buy their own gear atm, i had a kid throw my juggling balls at a brickwall today grr!

ive spent hardly anything on juggling, i make most things (balls, devilsticks, poi, fire staffs, covers). i got 2 yohos, fire clubs and poi for free, then more diabolos at cost price. clubs, string and diabology cost a bit though.

Really? For me a good setup would have 3 of every avaliable colour Finesse, Circus and Diabig. And a couple of sets of all the good sticks ;)

Maybe I'm just greedy ;)
