TurboFest 2009! (plus video)
« on: November 20, 2008, 01:42:02 AM »
Since I came to Québec, I've been taken under the wing of the Turbo418 crew.  They are some of the best people you'll ever meet, and have made my stay here nothing less than awesome so far.

And now they've asked me to announce their 3rd TurboFest. 
From 9-11 of January 2009, in sunny* Québec, Canada.

Let me start with a list of thing you can expect...
- 24 hour juggling
- crazy high ceilings
- on site food (including vegetarian) and drink (including alcoholic)
- on site sleeping
- lots of great games with high-quality medals, trophies and prizes
- the entire Turbo418 crew, and all the familiar convention faces
- Gong-show style renegade
- JuggleJam
- live DJs in the gym
- dedicated volley-club area
- as well as A LOT of combat!

And all complimented with an amazing show, including...
- Thomas Dietz (being Thomas!)
- Norbi (presenting a re-mixed and heavily schooled ring routine)
- Gabriel Beaudouin (home-grown high level awesome from Québec)
- Doug Sayers (premiering his brand-new stage routine)
- Other circus acts from l'École de Cirque de Québec, and l'École National de Québec.
- Turbo418 are also in negotiations with other artists, including Ivan Pecel and les 7 doigts de la main!

Prices are $35 for pre-reg, and $40 on the door.
For 3 days, 24 hour juggling, use of sleeping space, and entry to all shows and workshops.
Pre-reg, along with this year's t-shirts, will be coming soon to the website.

There's also a Facebook group to join

And you can all let us know you're coming by adding your name to the Facebook event

And finally - Be sure to bring plenty of warm clothes, it gets pretty cold in Québec in January!

Hope to see you all there.
Norbi

Damn - how do I miss these things when they are happening in my own backyard*!?

I already negotiated Christmas time off where I work part time and booked my flight to Ottawa and back. I'll see if I can get the time off and find the money for another flight.

Very nice, definitely going, liked the b-twist to split also.

Ha ha..... No, i think you can still get by on a birth certificate, I had to renew mine for Iceland anyway though, so i'm set no matter what.

Okay Google is officially the coolest thing ever!
I think we'd by driving it's only a couple of hours, currently you can go without a passport but as of 2008 you need one appharently, so so yeah I guess you do need one  :-D

It's not just juggling. It's freakin hard. from 5 rings throw a 6x59(ish) with the 9 forward a little. The timing drops into sync, do a sync 2up180, then go into 6x4 as the 9 bounces off the floor and comes blindly (yet perfectly) back into my hand.

Do you wanna come yet?

I'm finally home and far too tired to write anything else, but I thought I'd post this link: Jacob and I made the paper. (Notice the subtle diabolo.ca plug. ;) )

If I get time I can translate later. Or just take google's garbled word for it.
