Kernow Kendama Battle/Comp
« on: 05 August, 2012, 15:32:53 »
So.................Kernow Kendama are holding a small Battle/Comp @ Weztival on Sat 1st September.

The whole idea is for the Kernow Kendama crew and a few other players from Cornwall to get together a crown the true Kernow King of Kendama. We will only be accepting players from Cornwall for the main event, but other players are more than welcome to come along and if there's enough we can hold a separate comp.

Weztival is a small friendly festival started by Wez Swain of Circus Stars. Its held at a place called Hooelake in S.E Cornwall. There's always a few bands playing and a fair bit of drinking. This year Wez is raising money for the First Scout Expedition to the North Pole. Tickets only cost £5. It's a bargain if you ask me;-)

Check out the event page here. http://www.facebook.com/events/149660648504338/

Great stuff. Localised little scenes all help to build the (inter-)national scene.
Hope it goes well.

I thought that Kernow is a town/village in Cornwall   :o
What a pity that I can't participate. After the EJC in Lublin, I'm so into Kendama events ...

Kernow is the Cornish word for Cornwall :)

As for the location, due to the fact we're trying to keep the festival smallish we haven't been advertising the location too much. We don't want a bunch of people we don't really know turning up uninvited. If your interested then pm me and i'll send more info.

I was pondering the possibility of coming down to meet you all, but now you've switched the start time to 11.30, I seriously doubt I'll make it. Anyway, have lots of fun! :)
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!

Hey Void, The festival starts on the fri night so if you fancy coming down and camping with a few friends or whatever then feel free :) We'll be clicking away for most of the afternoon afterwards anyway so you could still come down if your keen. Then the festivities carry on sat night too. ;D

Ahhhh. Finally back on the forum after moving into a new flat and not being able to reset my password!? Just wasn't receiving the email with the link in!?

Oh well, so the Battle/Comp went really well. We had a bit of an incident on the Saturday morning which saw the comp being moved to Sunday, meaning one of our fellow competitors was unable to compete. Sorry Mike :'( Review and pictures can be seen here http://www.facebook.com/KernowKendama

On a very sad note, my 1st Generation Rasta KCN Battle was stolen. RIP little fella
