Title: Kendama Consistency Challenge 17:#birdsfordays
Post by: SweetsKendamas on 30 October, 2012, 02:42:41
Sorry it has taken me this long to start the next challenge. I have been busy with kendama related things I assure you ;D

You may have noticed that I created a hashtag for this consistency challenge. I don't think enough people utilize this forum so I am going to try and change that. Here is what I want to try. Everyone who films for this challenge should take a picture or write a post while you are out and use the hastag #birdsfordays to tag your pic or post. This may give away the nature of the challenge but its all good. In the post you should also include the website www.kendama.co.uk (http://www.kendama.co.uk) and tell people to join the Forum and compete!

I will post a photo of the Limited Run Sweets Kendama Prize tomorrow!

Contest will start at 11:59AM CST on October 31st, 2012 HALLOWEEN!

I think it sure will! That's a very tough challenge, but a very nice looking prize for whoever nails it.

Yes, bonzatron. To quote from the rules from KCC#1 by Donald:
Remember the rules: all tricks, in order, no cuts or sneaky edits.  First to post a video of it in this thread wins [the prize], the glory and the right to create and name the next consistency challenge.

This is a tough one. That bird -> double turn -> bird alone is way harder than I thought it would be!

the past contest only  a JKA and EKA kendama like SunRise, Play kendama, ozora, TK16, shin fuji, Mugen, Sakura kendamas were alowed
i don't know if Matt Sweets have won his last round with a sweets kendama,

but i think British kendama have to tell you this,

for me it does not matter, it is all about technic. but i did not make the rules for this one
i love to do birds with a Shin Fuji rokurosen red stripes

All of the above mentioned kendamas are allowed. Including Sweets. As long as that is fine with The Void. Just make sure it is formal size. No jumbos or minis.

Lol so just to be clear before I start trying to film we can use anything as long as it's competition sized?
Title: Re: Kendama Consistency Challenge 17:#birdsfordays

Actually, those are our "live" competition rules, but after having gone back to check, it's never been mentioned in the KCCs, apart from #10, where "competition size" was stated.

So, standard/competition size, any brand.

Ok, this one has me interested, been a while since I got my bird on.
Tonight after band practise I might have to bring out my old crappy camera and try this out....

Can we start with little cup for those around stuffs? Because i think it would be an advantage for american players who use to do arounds that way (big cup 1st) whereas european players (and japonese ones) use do start with little cup.

Wow. I really thought that would be tough for anyone to get within a month. I guess I underestimated the birdability of you guys. But 2 people getting it within a day!?! Wow. Nice work guys.

We have updated the KCC Roundup thread (http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,448.0.html) with the result, and also added Rules and Guidelines there. (It only took until #17!!)
Title: Re: Kendama Consistency Challenge 17:#birdsfordays
Post by: KendAlex on 01 November, 2012, 17:15:27
great and congratulations to both entrees.

i only have to say one thing,
following and play by the rules is the main thing, the tricks were written out and the ladder have to start with the big cup to bird to start with.
i know dadooh ask about it if it was possible to do start with the little cup, but that was not written down.
(I'm also used to it to start with the little cup on every trick that named Around the . . . . . )

on the Li ho Cheung the bird tricks are more a bird stall and not a proper landing (i mean with hold it for one second), it is not a speedtrick challenge but a consistency.

don't get me wrong here i do have respect for both players because they really great, but there are some rules and basics everyone know here that are following those consistency ladders from the start.

i only want to mention this to give everybody the same chances, and play by the rules(basics), and do the tricks that are listed in the exactly order.
what do you guys think?
(i'm not writing this because i was close, but just to mention about how i think about be fair, for everyone that like to play and take part)

i think if there isn't any agreements the next following consistency rounds, then it could be hard to make decisions (good or not)
