If it's a bit quiet today that may be because everyone is at BBU 2013, Forchheim Juggling Convention or London Hoop Fest.
Viewing all threads tagged #ejc2012, these threads relate to 35th European Juggling Convention Lublin, Poland.

Well, you missed the "running backwards" part of the name, but given the fence in front of everybody, I assume you must have taken that for granted. So yes. And it was for you because that was your trick at Bungay a few years ago. Everyone thought it was very silly fun. :-D
I did take that for granted but I suppose you could run forwards on the down swing. I'll give that a go tonight.
My (heavily kendama-biased) review of #EJC2012 is here:
Sounds like you had a great time & congrats again on the 5th Dan & to everyone else who graded too. What do the Japanese players think of the flood of Westerners onto the scene?
Most of them think it's a good (if a bit surprising) thing. Indeed, by offering Dan exams, some of them are instigating it! I think there may be a small proportion of the old guard who aren't quite sure about these foreigners doing stuff on gaijin soil, but no-one I've met has been anything other than enthusiastic.
So the olympics are underway. I quite enjoyed the opening ceremony. It dragged in some places but I liked the enormous Voldemort puppet, I thought the celebration of music was really well done & it was great to see Tim Berners Lee honoured centre stage. Whenever I hear Danny Boy being sung though I can only think of this:
Day 2 & "Sorry, london2012.com is unavailable"
The artistic gymnastics qualification starts at 10.55, the rhythmic gymnastics starts on Thursday 9th August. Another one to watch if you want to improve your gladiators is fencing which starts in about 20 minutes.
Just watched the ceremony (had to record it and lost the end). Loved the rings, the cauldron, the Queen and the choice of who lit the cauldron. Currently watching the archery but about to flop out in the sun and try and catch up on sleep (up at 02:30 to get Void to heathrow for #EJC2012 and only ended up with 1 hour's sleep). Will be watching athletics, gymnastics, equestrian events and maybe some weightlifting as one of the instructors at the gym I go to is a judge.
Reminder: Pre-registration for EJC 2012 ends in a couple of days ( on Thursday 31st May)
If you want to pre-register for the European Juggling Convention 2012 in Lublin there is only a day or two left.
This year is the first time EJC has been in Poland and promises to be a fantastic 9 days of juggling fun in the historic city of Lublin from 28th July till 5th August. As well as all the usual EJC activities there is also an urban Highline/slackline festival in Lublin. For more details see the convention website www.ejc2012.org
Pre-registering will save you money and helps the convention. If you pre-register it only costs 110 € (£92 or $145) for adults and 60 € (£50 or $80) for youths aged 10-15, accompanied children under 10 are free.
If you don't pre-register, you can pay when you get there, but it will cost 630 złoty (approx 145€/£115/$180 ) for adults and 340 złoty (approx 80€/£60/$100) for youths aged 10-15. You will have to pay in złoty if you pay when you get there (the exchange rates can change).
If you want to pre-register there is more information on the website www.ejc2012.org/strona/86 or contact your local EJA representative.
Remember pre-reg ends May 31st.
