Thanks The Void, i guess i step into a dream when i get out of the plane and it ends when i'm back home again.
so unreal.

@ Mirek, next big ''dream'' is the EJC 2012 to see all the players again from the EJC 2011.
and ofcourse to go for a next Dan rating.
And if it is possible i like to go to the Kengarden to meet all the west coast kendama players.
but i think the biggest dream is to get a Dan in front of the JKA in Japan, and to be there to see a real high level JKA battle of the members of the JKA.
and to meet all the people.

Ughh I want to go soo bad... I used to say that the airfare was too pricy for me to justify it for one weekend, but I'm sure the airfare is probably even more for you haha. I'll need a new excuse now :p

Very jealous. The question is how many and which kendamas are you taking?
I don't imagine they'll let that aluminium one in the carry-on luggage!
BKO 2011 - 2nd, SRC 2011 - 2nd,  SRC 2012 - 2nd, EJC 2012 (unicorns) - 2nd, SRC 2013 - 2nd, BKO 2013 - 3rd - Always the bridesmaid...

Today i've got home from teh dama fest,
This was the second great kendama meeting in my life.

To meet all the pro's and the Amerikan kendama players was awesome,
i hope to finish a story within two weeks, but it will be done.

I upload a few pictures on my facebook,
if you aren't my friend on face book, you can be one if you like, no problem.
here is the link of the Dama Fest Album.
