Hi all I just did a search to find out info on the Bristol Juggling Convention - what is contained in this post is cut and pasted directly from the site.

I thought this should be posted so that anyone who is intending to go could post and hopefully get in touch with others that are going.

I would like to go but I am working for the whole weekend unfortunately - booo!

If anyone who is going and is still in Bristol for the Sunday evening then feel free to get in touch and come to Bath (about 5 return on the train ~15mins).

I will be more than happy to spin after work on the Sunday night (finish @ 5 pm) and we will have our regular meet on Monday night.

Ah! But I'm a juggler. I have juggling clubs poking out the top of my bag to prove it. As long as the test doesn't get more involved than that I'm fine!

Dom, I hear they ask you to keep at least 3 of the damn things in the air at once!

If it has taken me this long to learn to control 2 things that are attached to my fingers how the hell am I going to manage to do this??
