Thanks again for the show guys, and thanks to the sponsors as well.



Spoilers ahead.

While compiling the video I noticed that There are only 2 times when both The Void and Matt miss, the rest of the no-points are all hits. Specially at the end, The Void had the title in his hands with a Diving Top. Quite intense.

5 points for Matt, 4 point for The Void, 4 tricks with no points scored and 3 tricks not played.

I had some doubts on one Diving top from Matt, after seeing it in video it was a clear hit.

Just watched
Nice compilation of the begginers division always good to see begginers hit some of the harder tricks in the list

Advanced final was very intense indeed. Void almost had it in the Diving Top round, but then came along the evil force known as... Pressure! Then when I saw that the last trick was BOTV I said to myself 'Is it going to end this way again[1]' and it did.

Well done guys!

Hey @shalafi , just tried to find info on DCF 2016 - nothing. Do you know if it's happening, or if you're planning an IKO for next year?

The Dublin Circus Festival is organised by a students club, so it's never announced early.

Also, it's always one weekend before St. Patrick's day, so they don't feel like they need announcing it.

I haven't talked to them, but it is my intention to do the 2nd IKO the same way as I did the first one, as long as there are players interested

Bah, Ryanair have changed their flight schedules, so I can't do a day trip this time. :/

Mmm, looking at the dates of past year, it seems I was wrong and it is the weekend AFTER St Patricks. So probably March 19th

Who would be coming? @The Void @kendamatty @KenDogma ? I am afraid this year we will have less people... I haven't been advocating kendama for a while, I'm seriously lacking spare time.

Well, given the initial push, I have drafted a list of 20 tricks from which I would do the Advanced division and I contacted the organizers of the DCF.

Hopefully more info soon.

It seems that that is a more expensive weekend for flights. So it currently looks unlikely that I would make it across this time, sorry. :-/
