But now...It's Mr. Nasty time. I've learned some STUFF in the 9 months since I started swinging poi. Sending video in a few days... Signed "Wrap Master Funk"Daniel Tyler

HMMM, Jo Derry, he's the man. But, if Pozzey sends in a video Jo might have some seriouse competition (Where you at Pozzey?). And I need to second John's motion, Jo Derry Rocked the last compilation (and Galager, and Michael, and Dangerboy, and Flashfire), And don't let me forget the girls (all of the girls rocked)....did I mention Flashfire?

If Jo has improved as much as I have we are all in deep shi_. Oh well, there is still the staff section right? Speaking of which....Dear Judges: What if I have a poi/staff run (poi in one hand, staff in the other), does it qualify for poi or staff, or both? could I win both with one run? Probly wouldn't be fair to do so... we'll see... And what about Insane Monkey Girl, that staff she had in "CoL" with the poiz on the end of it, what would that qualify as? Just thought I'd tickle your brain a little... Peace Love Fire"Rap Master Funk"Daniel Tyler

Posted:Hmm...this sounds kinda fun, although the whole concept of competing sounds silly... I'm still down for twirling some staff and winning some dough..but I don't have a video camera.. hmm, time to call grandpa up..I guess sending in blurry little mpegs won't cut it eh?One question as to style, does using 2 staffs at once disqualify you from the staff competition?

I'd better get of my butt and practice some more for tommorrow's taping...I'm not the judge, but I tend to agree with Jedi White...probly gona be the ass kickin factor

Posted:MalcolmAdministrator Posts: 285From: Christchurch, New ZealandRegistered: Dec 2000 posted 16 July 2001 11:16 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------Myst,Judging for me in the competitions was based on things like Fluidity of Movement, Passion, Energy, Choreography, Rhythm of Movement, Skill, Variety. If you have all the above and swung a plain old sock on a string you would get my vote. If your sock had a glow stick in it or was on fire it would not be rated any higher or lower. I remember a quote it goes like "it's not what you got but what you can do with it" this can be adapted to many things in life .

just posted those details so people would have a better idea on what the judges will be looking for...Basically saying that you need to be a good allrounder in order to win - super technicality and flashy moves won't necessarily win, nor will extreme sex appeal. dammit.

Posted:so flash, you are saying that I can do all the tripple back flips, but if it is not fluid then you wouldn't give me credit for just that........I can understand, but give credit where credit is due.......some of my moves, like when I set up two steel boxes sid by side and (using the staff)run up and do a front hand spring off of them, are starting moves......really I have found no way to go into it so it is just going to be a starting move.......but I come out of it right into a front cross over......it is just not a mid run move like the one handed front hand spring..and the back hand spring.......oh yeah and what about kung fu.....I do lots of kicks.....how d you judge that?.......I do pass the staff under my legs in over half of my kicks thoughso it is not a total waste although it is hard to tell sometimes that I am actually passing the staff under my legs.....I guess what I am saying is that my style is much more acrobatic and kung fuish than most people.......is this a good or bad thing in your eyes.?......I think it is rather unique for this site.......but that is just how I learned it.......(many many old kung fu flicks)........I would like your input on this being as you ARE the head staff lady around here.......anyway take it easy and by all means be safe......JEDI WHITE(J.T.)

Posted:JT - I know nothing more than has been posted/copied here by Malcolm - my summary was the conclusions I had drawn from what had been said.I have nothing to do with the judging process and will actually probably be entering the competition myself, so can't comment about the merits of one style over another...So I guess we all just need to do the best we can in every way and see what happens!------------------"she dances in a ring of fire and throws off the challenge with a shrug"

I've been working on some quite dancy stuff lately and a few strange new technical tricks. mostly though, i can't wait to see what you all come up with! .......some of this stuff sounds fantastic. heh, it's not fair, you guys have had a summer to practise while i languished in the ice of dunedin
