Outlink 2016 - Come and join
« on: 18 January, 2016, 22:04:25 »
So, giving that the BKA membership is no longer a thing and that Outlink is not going to be run by the BKA, I do not want one of the most fun competitions to die. So I will run it.

I will be running this for fun, so it is open to everyone in the forum, despite having been a BKA member on the past years or not. I honestly hope Void joins it.

On January 19th, I will post a video of a single trick, with a keyword. (e.g. Big Cup & "Kendama!").

You then have until 11:59am on Jan31st to post a video of yourself in this thread, doing that trick, then saying the keyword. Simple! If you have not posted a video at the end of the time limit, then you are OUT of Outlink.

Then, on Feb 1st, everyone who has posted will go through to the next round.
This will be a new trick, with a new keyword. And so we repeat the process.
The tricks will get gently harder, and the time limit will reduce slightly as the competition continues.

To win, you just have to be the last person left still posting videos.

RULES
1. Join this forum, if you haven't already. (It's free!)
2. Use any competition-size kendama.
3. Film yourself copying the current trick, then saying the current keyword.
4. Make sure you film clearly, preferably outside, or at least in good lighting. Upload anywhere (JTV, Youtube, Vimeo, Instagram, etc etc)
5. Post a link to your video in this thread.

#BKAOutlink2016

PRIZE(S)

* Krom Splash by Kendama Ireland -donated by Yoko (Craftybuddy)-.
* Custom kendama by cello_91
* Royal Kendama by Royal Kendama (if 12+ people enter round 1 Granted!)




Now, the tricky part. I am not skilled enough to record tricks that can challenge the best player in the forum, so I will provide textual descriptions most of the time. Also I have very little spare time to do videos myself, so, that's what I can offer.

Round 1

Trick: Around Ireland
Keyword: Community
Deadline: January 31st 11:59am IST (Irish Standard Time, which is essentially the same as BST) Gone!

Outlink 2016 #1 - juggling videos hosted @ Juggling.tv

Round 2

Trick: Trap Bird Fly Over the Valley. Trap to be done with index and middle finger
Keyword: Powers
Deadline: February 12th 22:00 GMT Gone!

Outlink 2016 #2 - Trap Bird Fly Over the Valley - juggling videos hosted @ Juggling.tv

Round 3:

Trick: Fork catch > Spike > Grip change (Secret grip) > Flying top pivot > Grip change (penguin) > Grip change (normal)
Keyword: Overcome
Deadline: February 22nd 22:00 BST Gone!

Outlink 2016 #3 - Fork catch, grip change, flying top pivot, etc - juggling videos hosted @ Juggling.tv

Round 4:

Trick: Swirls, antispins and isolations: Swirl, spin, reverse, antispin grip change, swirl, antispin grip change, isolation grip change, aeroplane
Keyword: Apparently
Deadline: March 2nd 22:00 BST Gone!

Outlink 2016 #4 - Swirls antispins and isolations - juggling videos hosted @ Juggling.tv

Round 5:

Trick: Lighthouse variations. 1-turn lighthouse > lighthouse somersault > falling down > Jumping stick > build the lighthouse > Hop > Trade spike
Keyword: Unconquerable
Deadline: March 10th 22:00 BST Gone!

Notes: You do have to hit the tradespike (not like me), you have to use a competition size kendama (not like me) and you have to hold each lighthouse for 1 second (but I'd appreciate if you do it a bit longer, I don't want to reject entries based on LH hold too short)

http://juggling.tv/15842 ← Please go to JTV for HD/download

Round 13:

Trick: Untitled
Keyword: Insane
Deadline: April 19th 22:30 BST Gone!

So, let's go for something that is also in the spirit of outlink, giving less instructions about the tricks.

You have to copy this trick, (at 1:58, the video should start at that point)

http://youtu.be/vknpVDkBjmk?t=1m58s

Round 14:

Trick: Wingwalker nods off and on over the valley: Wingwalker > Banking > Wingwalker > Over the valley to small cup wingwalker > Banking > Wingwalker > Spike
Keyword: Combos
Deadline: April 22th 22:30 BST Gone!


http://juggling.tv/15854 ← Please go to JTV for HD/download

Notes:
* The nodding off and on must keep contact, it is not a throw and catch.
* Hold each position still for 1 second.

Respect!
Any keywords this year?
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

First keyword is: Community (it says it in the post, but I should put it in bold).

I'll probably make a video of this tomorrow lunchtime.

And here we go :)



What better kendama to use than the one I won in Outlink last year, right @cello_91 ? ;) I was looking forward to doing some crazy Void tricks (Voidoloviny) again, will see what @shalafi comes up with :)

Sorry the lightning is not so good, I am avoiding outdoors because of flu or whatever is the thing I have...

I'll try my best to keep the weirdness of tricks, but Void's shoes are difficult to fill :)
