Don't forget that the clocks go back at 2am on Sunday 30th!

Even if you forget, it just means you'll show up a bit early, but wouldn't you rather stay in bed for an hour, or have a nice long lazy breakfast? :)

David from Sunrise Kendamas will be coming along with a wide range of goodies for sale, including some pretty sweet[1] Marble-design tamas. Give a shout out here before the weekend if you have any special stock requests for him to bring.
 1. See what I did there?

Free Tea, coffee and biscuits!
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!

For anyone who's a muppet, and likely to get lost on the way, my number is

 [edited out]

Not that I can probably do much about it if you do.... so don't be a muppet!  :)

Right, I'm in - despite the fact that this is my last Sunday in the UK, as I am emigrating next week, and I am choosing to spend it playing kendama with you lot (let's be honest, WAY more fun than packing..) :)
Looking forward to it, for those who don't know me I'll be the first one out of the advanced division 'cos I'll *easily* be the worst there and I haven't done an ounce of preparation! However, if anyone wants to buy a glow in the dark glittery deathray tama - brand new still in the packet - I'll be bringing it along with me.
See you tomorrow chaps!
John.

I'm not well enough to do a long drive safely, so I'm going to have to miss this, now.  Sorry, all.    :'(

Hope it was a good do chaps.  Couldn't make it in the end due to driving some stupid mileage recently (Newcastle, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Bristol (only last weekend) and Kent within 3 weekends) and clocking up a ridiculous fuel bill, couldn't justify another weekend away from the house otherwise my housemates might think I'm actively trying to avoid them.

Hope to see some of you at the Northern event though, I'll make sure it's kept free.

Aaahhhh, I had a great time! Props to Void for organising, was really good to meet / play with you all. Loads of inspiration and things to practice for the forthcoming months - I swear I will nail those swirls, Dave - and seeing Matty bust out some ridiculously lengthy horse/bird combos was an absolute treat. Thanks again for the good times - shame you couldn't make it Looby and Guy - left with a ton of good memories and more clicking than I can shake a stick at.
See you next year, maybe!
John, who lived up to the promise of being knocked out in the first round of advanced on a measly aeroplane. :D

Awesome day guys, massive thanks to Void for the day was fantastic, the tea and biscuits were the icing on the cake i have to admit! Thanks to Mr David sunrise for kitting us all out, wish I could have bought some of those customs but had a car of hungry folk, eyes on something for the new year though...
Have to mention Mark's ambidextrous ball and kd juggling, there is an impressive knack to that I certainly don't possess but big props to him, and Dave swirls like a crazy foo'!
Have fun on your trails to Cambodia John was good you made your last Sunday here, safe times!

And I finally have a kendama mug, incredibly happy!! :-)
