Usually a fairly good turnout of diabolo players for this. Who's going this year?

P.S. Vux is performing in the show if you needed any more incentive.

I've managed to wangle some of my club to come up next Saturday which will be cool.  It'll be their first convention for most of them.  Gonna be driving a big car up and looking forward to it all.

Hope to see you guys there again,

Vux has been taken off the show list and workshop list. Does anyone know if he's still going to be there?


--EDIT-- : -- Just got an email reply from the organisers and Vux has cancelled --

Annoying about Vux cancelling! Anyone going to give the Renegade a go?
If I go I will be on my own, so please talk to me :)

Aye tis a shame Vux seemed to has pulled out. But hopefully somone will do some kind of workshop type thing even if its just a demonstration of a couple of tricks. Integrals boggle my mind and i'll probably bug people to explain them  ;D.

Come talk to the slightly crazy looking guy with rediculously messy blonde hair i can instruct you in many ways how to drop the diabolo doing simple tricks, its my speciality. Although if its anything like last year the diaboloists seemed to form some kind of group. Either that or people generally are scared falling spinning objects and moved out of the way. Enough pointless waffling...

See you all there!

I spoke to one of the organisers today, they are allocating a time and space for a diabolo trick swap but if anybody has a workshop that they would like to do then that space or time (or part of it?) could be used for that.

People are going to get confused between me and you with that description :D
Integrals boggle my mind and i'll probably bug people to explain them  ;D.
I've got a little integral I could try to teach you. Can hardly do it myself so you'd have to be patient with my demo :)

EDIT: Any chance of someone doing a 3rd base ideoligy workshop :D

Just got back, in pain :'(
Twas a great day in the sun, diaboling to bongo drums :) with new diabolos, thanks to Nev :D
Was good to meet lots of people from the forum and learn lots of new stuff! - including 3rd base...
Renegades and the main shows were great, with Adrian Pole juggling to U2 :o
Will definitely be going next year!

It was definitely worth going, even if I did only get there an hour before the show.. I got some good
help on my fans (cheers nev & alex), and learnt some cool string figures from nick. Couldn't have asked for better weather  8)

Yeah, the shows were all very good.. but Adrian's one was awesome, you didn't miss the best act by leaving early  ;)

I've got a few videos from the day.. I'll put them online as soon as I figure out how

Aye it was great fun, wish i could have stayed till the end but the lady friend I was with had to be back for work at 6 :(.

Conventions always seem to improve my diaboloing no end nearly got a stable fan today which i've never had more than 2-3 rotations before. Picked up some 3 ball tips and some poi stuff i've been playing around with.
If only there was a convention every week...
