Not sure if I'd attend the EJC this year, but we'll see.

That being said, I think the list trick of 2011 was better. I especially dislike the pinkie and the thumb trap, they don't look like "proper" Kendama tricks.

Will there be a ticket for only the EKO, like for the BKO? Cause I'm not able to go to the entire convention but I would love to enter in the EKO and maybe take a whack at a 2nd Dan grading.

EJC has not yet announced their prices, but I suspect not. You will probably have to buy a day ticket for the convention. And I would not necessarily rely on being able to do a grading on the same day as the competition, so you better stay for 2 days at least.

Okay, thanks for the info! I'll probably be able to go for 3 or 4 days, I didn't expect everything to happen in one day :-)

Ups, ok, other years it has been the same as the BKO, I guess it is not impossible that this year that happens as well. :)

mmm, with that rule change I may have won the EKO beginners 2010 and the BKO beginners 2011, my typical no miss ladder until I miss 3 on a row.

Edit: I should have won the beginners on the BKO, but still 2nd on the EKO.

I like the new rule, rewarding consistency.

can't wait!

by the way I have a suggestion to make on the way the comp actually goes down...I found very annoying that there was a 20 trick list last year, but that in the whole competition, pretty much only 12 of them came out. I think that if a trick is picked out and a point is scored with it...the trick should bounce. no point in having to do it again, especially if there is a whole list of tricks :)

know what i mean Void?

I say this as a friend, and because I'm traumatized by the F*"รง%+=/ BAT!! hahaha

Hi Nic,

You mentioned this once before, and we took it on board. Since October, once a trick has been drawn in a battle, we've been setting that trick aside until the end of that battle. (Or until all the other tricks have also been drawn and the battle is still going on, in which case all the tricks go back into a bag.) So no repeats within a battle any more (or very unlikely to be).

So thanks for the suggestion. (Both times)  :)
