Kendama Jam at Leeds Juggling Convention, Sat 21st Nov, 2015
« on: 10 November, 2015, 17:36:47 »
Hi all,

Just to let you know a bunch of kendama players are going to Leeds Juggling Convention on Sat 21st November, it's held in the same venue as we put on the European Kendama Open Championship this year.

Details can be found here:

https://sites.google.com/site/leedsjugglingconvention/

and on Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/events/544003059086864/

Jammers from the local YoDama crew will be there - @Jak @BigKidJim @Kingi @Magda and me plus there are usually more who come up too (ahem, fancy it . . . @Ian F ? @The Void ? @Dimensions ? @kendamatty ? )

The site is really easy to get to on public transport (and if it falls right time wise a few of us *may* be able to offer lifts).

One thing I'd add is other than tea / coffee and doughnuts there isn't usually food provided so bring something with you as the shops aren't too near.

I'll be there (late decision!). See you cats there, @Jak @BigKidJim @Kingi @Magda @Kev @ian @Ian F @Jamiejuggler !
I'll have grading papers and a little bit of stock with me, in case anyone's interested in either of those.

Fun day. I think I counted 10 people jamming at one point or another. Now to see what footage I've got....

Here's a short video I made:
Kendama @ Leeds Juggling Convention 2015 - juggling videos hosted @ Juggling.tv

Me, @Kev @Magda @Kingi @BigKidJim @ian @Ian F , Lina, Sharon, Tom, @Jak , all played along for a while. I loved it when Rosie (total beginner) asked to borrow a kendama and joined in, trying Slip Grip Special. "Oh, well that's what everyone else was trying...". :-D

Thanks Kev for the inspiration for the last trick, which I think is Aeroplane > Slam Fast Hand Aeroplane (the way I did it, although I think it was more drop-and-pop for you, Kev?).
Fun day, thanks for everyone who came along to click.

'Twas a great day and good to catch up and meet some new people. Legs still burning, @The Void, you'd be proud! :)

OK looks like I've been pipped to a very similar post, letting mine stand though. Seems to be a recurring theme...masochism?

Hi @Magda,
Thanks.
You can paste the *link* into FB, but please don't upload the actual video.

And my legs ache today too, guys. ;)
Cheers!
