Today I ran a small workshop at the Dublin Circus Festival (no signs of the IKO this year yet)

I also decided on a trick for the collab, now I just have to land it, which so far has never happened.
Well done on workshopping. Yeah, I vaguely wondered about the IKO a while back, but held out little hope.
I look forward to receiving your collab trick.
Well, you heard them past year "Sure, we'll run it" but I am helding little hope as well.

I have some time this week, I'll try to land one of the different variations I had in mind... I haven't practiced that much lately.

OTOH: I did some yoyo practicing today and my Rubik's skills are way better than a year ago, not sure if it compensates, but it is what it is.

Today I found a really tiny, subtle trick while waiting for a bus.  Pen grip big cup, swing the whole thing round to penguin.  Keeping the momentum going, let the tama roll across the back of your hand and it drops into base cup.  Like I say, a tiny trick but finding it kept me amused until the bus arrived.....:)
Today I had a go at this, and couldn't get my head around it. Just re-read it, and I think it makes sense to me now, but it doesn't flow for me. I look forward to seeing it in your own inimitable style.... either in person, or on vid, if Pete can manage it.

Today I got 3 Whirlwind Earth Turns in a row. Cup of coffee definitely earned.

Nicely done!

Oh Wow, I thought MAt was not practicing that much anymore...
I think me, @kendamatty & @donald grant are the triumvirate of the British #StillSlaying old guard. And that's old with a capital F. :-)

Gentle park session today, after being told "you can't film here without permission" by someone who must love his job. Was tempted to go with the line from Fowles' The Magus "Can is not may!", but didn't think it would be either appreciated or properly twigged.

@Maicodama I hope you prove me wrong about the tricklist. Sorry if I sounded overly negative. Gut reaction. I should've chilled a bit before posting. As ever, I know the work involved, so thanks for all your efforts.

I can get to the FB page on desktop, on iPad it doesn't show me the full event details. Hmm. Also: Typo on the FB page - you refer to the social day as being on "Sunday". You might want to fix that.

I'll wait for the FS details, and decide whether I want to enter. Cheers.

@The Void. As always there’s niggles and you always find holes in how this has been set. Noted that the Open Tricklist had some errors which have been rectified.

It’s taken me a while to think and set these tricks and think about the difficulty.

Since you’ve publicly spoken freely about your opinion on here then I guess I should respond accordingly.

As for rules and regulations on freestyle there will be a intro video (like we do every year) to explain.

The Facebook event is definitely public and it has been since It was posted perhaps you can take a closer look.

I could spend a whole lot of time explaining but perhaps a private message would’ve sufficed.
