Is ti just me or the difficulty of the ladders keeps increasing with each competition?

Its going to be fun to watch, but hard to compete :)

Awesome skills and lots of interesting tricks1.  Wish I could get to Lublin to see this.  Maybe one day I’ll even be able to do some of the tricks too!?

etc etc
The standard is rising irrespective of us. Which is a good thing. But yes, we should reflect that, whilst retaining things at a reachable level. Everything up to quarter final is definitely reachable. As for the Semi & Final tricks... only 4 people will even have to attempt those.

The fact that it is a longer list does not mean anyone will have to do more tricks in the competition. Remember, it's not a Ladder, it's random draw. More tricks means more variety for the audience. Okay, a few more tricks for the players to learn too, but most of them are familiar by now anyway.

Everybody now has 5 months to learn to love this list. :) 5 or 10 minutes practice a day goes a very long way.

In case I was not clear, new tricks are good, it helps (at least me) focus on practicing new stuff

I am getting self-certified pre-dan quite regularly now as well.

What a good idea. :-)
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!

Have a tuneful flight Void, from Munich F.J. Strauss to Warsaw Frederic Chopin!
