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!

oke let me think
-1 PAW 3 spike kendama
-5 Custom kendamas (3 of them are gifts)
-3 Bilboquets (1 of them is a semi gift)
-1 Mugen kendama
-3 Oozora kendamas
-1 custom KendAlex Taiyo kendama
-4 Performer kendamas, (2 of them are new, to let it sign by almost all players, if there is space enough)
-1 emperor kendama
-1 KendAlex Custom Junior kendama
-2 aluminium kendamas (one is a gift)
and 1 blue sky mugen goes in my carry-on luggage

Alex, this is the first time ever I hit the "like" button on anything. Your diary reminds me on long forgotten stories, that need to be told again, and again, and again...

This is going deep, very deep, isn't it?

Thanks Peter.

After the EJC 2011, this was my next best event so far, on this event i did realise who i'm , normaly i'm a real down to earth person, but on the Dama Fest i was in kendama heaven, Thanks to Kendama USA

i also talk a lot about the next EJC in Poland 2012, and there are players from the USA that realy like to come over, to meet all the European players and the Japanese players.
i hope that upcomming event will be even a bigger blast.
it is realy nice to meet people with difference styles and status, to improve yourself in this beautiful game Kendama.
