Cool. Hopefully a few of the UK players who are less active on the forum will manage to make an appearance too.
There will be some prizes, btw. (Not sure exactly what yet.)
Tricklists will be released in January.

Nice tricks. I thought stab directly from trapeze was difficult, but stopping on base cup is much easier.

Also, I didn't knew the name of Dragon Curl. It's cool.

Good luck, people! Intermediate trick #2 is more of a line than a good line than a trick, but sure to be fun on the day and under pressure. Destined to be a great event any old way.

It seems likely I could attend

Trickers have "Battles" scheduled for 7pm, so I'd guess we'd be all done by 6. Maybe earlier...

Big thanks to [user]jordanfung[/user] for hosting us, everyone who came (especially [user]Efect[/user] and Bartek who made it along for just a couple of hours!), and our lovely and kind sponsors!
