Good times today. Had 10 players through the day (maybe the weather put some off?), 5 of whom were able to stay around for the ladders. Also 5 took gradings. I was asked several times for my "best trick", and also told several times that I was showing off. :D Fun games of KEN and Last Man Standing, and general play.
Cheers to Toby at Airculture for hosting. We may have to do this again sometime...

No submissions yet. I guess this means you're all making careful plans, and choosing choice locations, and grinding your best moves. :)

You can always submit a "banker", and "upgrade" to a harder-core trick later. That could be a plan if you're not good with deadlines. Lots of time left for now though....

Trick Rules
- You should start the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position. You don't have to do the previous move, but you can if you want to. But if so remember to...
- Hold the start and finish positions of the combo still for a couple of seconds please.
- You must wait to have your attempt verified by the previous setter before setting the next step.
- Use any competition-sized kendama. (16cm ken, 60mm ball)
- You cannot reply to your own trick.
- You must wait to re-enter until 5 other people have done a combo after you set one.
- Your trick set may end on an active ballance (i.e Candle Balance) but you can use an active ballance in a transition of a trick/set
Video Rules (To help for a nicer compilation video)
- Make sure you have adequate lighting. Please film in daylight if possible. Clips usually look very poor in artificial light.
- Please film in Landscape, not Portrait, not Square.

There is a prize of a Trojka 3 kendama for one random participant between tricks 151-175.
Currently in the draw: KenSan Jnr, The Void, the milky oolong, KenSan, s070s, Dimensions, Jakub Z, Ben Pycroft, fiddletriks, shalafi, John, Cliffdama, Matt Goody, kendamatty.

kendamatty, The Void, Dimensions, KenSan & Jakub Z must sit out this round.
@John is now allowed back in.
