Tell us all about it! We love hearing about our fellow poiers/staffies/misc. toyers succeeding with new things biggrin

It's just hard to keep up with it all sometimes, so if we keep it together you'll be certain to get a little feedback.



here a pat on the back in advance from me

Posted:i mentioned to jonnny that it would be a good renegade act for the ejc.
but i had already realised by then that i wasn't going, so i didn't tell ya just in case you did it without me ubbcrying wink

84567 is valid 6b pattern (quite a nice one too)which is more than any part of my phone number - only my first three digits are juggleable and they are 012 which a blind person could easily juggle.

umm

does anyone have a life they could lend me - from this post i think its obvious i blatently need to get one... ubblol

redface - i dont think this is what you think it is though.. its like the bit that happens outside your arms for weave ones, except it happens between your arms for butterflys.. im writing a long post (which is probably all wrong) at the moment to try and explain this.

Hmm.. well..
Can't say I went that far!

Still, the one-handed butterfly was just cause to run round the patio and bang on all the windows to get my family out to come and watch redface

What can i say? i'm very proud of my accomplishments, and need to prove to someone that i can do it before they hit at the bottom of their circle and whack me in the balls ubbrollsmile

Posted:buzzsaw weave! Hoorah! For so long i couldn't even figure out what the heck you guys were talking about, but I can do it now, forward at least. And it's coming in reverse as well.

Even though I can't smoothly do a full reverse buzzsaw weave from left to right and back again, I can now throw the buzzsaw into the flow of moves as a decoration, which is really the goal anyways.

Posted:doubles contact!
from parallel, pass left staff into shoulder-neck-shoulder-halo then recatch in left hand.
during this, pass the right staff to left btb, then back to right in front, so the left is free to recatch the first staff. theres about 8 variations of this i can think of right now to work on biggrin

Posted:hug to martin the uber seal and especially to hexagonic will hug

i learnt a *lot* last night.

all these tricks i was shown at spitz and managed to land them at least once, with some being solid by the end of the evening!

(6x,4)(4,2x) - been doing this symmetically for a while but could only ever get 2 or 3 cycles until it broke down. doing it all on one side feels like a sync 7441 and it is solid as you like smile

(6x,2x)(2x,6x) - ds ads showed me this on sunday but i didn't get it until will demonstrated last night.

71 b121[53]1 71 - 4b shower multiplex fun - this is a high single-low 'plex. added it to my normal 4b shower 'plex and extended so it goes direct into high-low shower (9151) instead of a normal shower (71). which gives me my longest ever siteswap sequence: (4)24[75]171b121[53]191517123(4) ubbrollsmile and if you understand all that, you are a better man than me!

642 - splendid little 4b trick that will be handy for learning 64 (out of 5b cascade).

martin's magic 3b sync shower trick - ask uber seal about this one... ubbloco juggle

shoulder throws with clubs - double spin over the shoulder. right arm only so far but i already managed it with fire clubs (sunday night)!

14 catches of 6b wimpy

and on top of all that the princess and i found ourselves an act that we can prepare for our visit to chateau chatbleu biggrin
