# 5 clubs, 10 minutes

Flash.
Got it (kind of) 3 times! First one with the last club caught between my hands and my chest, the other two with the last club caught low and a bit too far in front of me, but at least they were caught by the handle, even if I used both hands. All 3 were during the last 3 minutes of 5c flash attempts.

Odnom (9647772)

774, S figured it was a good practice pattern for the previous one, and sometimes he threw me a late double (so I got a zip instead of a flip).
974772774 again, worked a bit better

Fountain, doubles. Got 150 catches
3[4,3]2, and switching between this and fountain.
534534 once and back to fountain

55550, didn't get more than 8 catches.

# 5 clubs, 15 minutes

Flash.
One round where all clubs were caught but after a collision and not all handles.
Many rounds where clubs collided, mostly club 4 and 5. Many overspun throws. Many clubs that landed too far in front of me. Finally figured out that it was mostly the last throws that were overspun.
Got a real flash in the end. All handles, no collisions, I had to reach forward a bit but it might have been my best 5c flash so far. Helped the last catch a little bit with the other hand but it was definitely in the correct hand (the left one).

55500 (with hand clap)

sync fountain

Ball passing:
(With L and H)
2-count inside triange practise pattern 3p22223 (or 3p31313 for me sometimes). A few attempts at the full pattern, too, but that didn't work. There were lots of drops already in the practise pattern.

I would have tried 2-count/4-count feed if L and H could do 4-count, but they find 2-count easier (at least when passing with me).

# 5 clubs, 10 minutes

Trying to do a flash.
S watched and pointed out that most throws were overspun. When I had trouble correcting that he suggested making the throws slightly lower, which actually felt a little bit better. I caught all clubs once, but not all handles.
