For EJC Ireland 2006, we have secured the use of the largest indoor

hall in Ireland, with plenty of fields for tents, camping and fun, all

on the same site. We realise that the dates are significantly earlier

than many of you were expecting, but if we held the EJC in August, as

in previous years, we would be unable to use a site of this quality.

Our priority is to deliver a great convention, and that is what we are

concentrating on doing!



Now added to the website :

Travel Information

Photos of the hall

Accommodation Options



Forums now added - arrange lifts to Millstreet, and chat about the EJC here!





Please direct any questions or comments to info@ejc2006.net



We look forward to seeing you all here!



Sln,



Helen

Um... That'd be nice certainly but there are certainly a section of jugglers that vocally hate poi.



i realised i've never actually met one in real life - i'd love to talk to one of them one day...




I did. In Sheffield actually. I tried to bring up the fact that "Unicycling isn't juggling either but you don't seem to actively hate that" but he seemed lost on logic in general.

Didn't Jason Whatshisface do a poibashing thing on the mainstage before his juggling performance two years ago at EJC?


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Plus I hate crap poiers too.

And I hate unicyclists that constantly get in my way. And jugglers that juggler real close to you and then keep picking up balls they drop by your feet.

ANd I hate getting swacked by horizontal diablo genocide's. So I usually leave half the hall for that guy... rolleyes

Posted:seems i was right then ("less 'jugglers that hate poi' and more just 'twats'") smile

as for garfield, no-one ever really listens to what he has to say do they? wink

he's often quite funny but that's about it.

he doesn't allow poi at the wjf, thinks that unless you can juggle 7 balls you don't deserve to be called a juggler (yet not-so-secretly wishes he was as good as anthony gatto is) and is so arrogant that his idea of promoting juggling is to promote his specific style of juggling.

i'd love to meet garfield (and jason garfield but the cat's way higher up the list).

i think he has done a lot of good work for juggling in america and is an amazingly talented performer.
but on certain topics, i'm just not quite sure when he's joking and when he's not...

i hope he comes to the bjc next year - they're hosting the wjf in the uk and i'm absolutely certain that all spinning-type-stuff will be welcomed with open arms smile

yeah but my opinion counts for more wink


cole. x

p.s. the wink means i was employing the literary technique of irony and thus should be read as a witty jibe and not as a scathing personal attck that rocks you to your very core.

i know you;re sensitive like that wink

p.p.s. if i say something like "you suck wink wink" does the double wink act like a double negative and imply that i'm not being sarcastic?
or does it just mean a double wink i.e. i'm using an intricate combination of irony mixed with sarcastic overtones...?

p.p.p.s. if i nod when i'm talking in real life, does this mean i'm indicating that what i am saying is meant ironically?
after all, they say a nod is as good as a wink... wink
i personally think a wink ranks way higher on the gesture-o-meter.

shrug

That is entirely the question cole... If two winks cancels out, then is it the same as one, and are you in fact employing american sarcasm, where you don't let on that your saying the opposite of your own opinions?

Or does it mean that you thought I might miss the first wink and therefore two would be better?

Or maybe you're suggesting that I forgot to meet you at the corner outside the docks wearing a brown rain jacket and carrying a copy of the financial times...

who can tell in this big scarey world of textual communication?

Isn't that why we juggle?

But double double negatives with inverted sarcasm is the jedi of wit, in my humble opinion smile

then you'd need to do an isolated hyperloop it into the straitjacket of wit, in my opinion.

You registered on this site back before the world changed mister...

Ahhh... I see what you did there... it was an American double double negative, inverted - so sly you probably didn't even realise it yourself.

Yes, Jason Garfield is particularly vocal about his opinions on poi. And Thomas Dietz did a piss take poi show on the open stage at the EJC last year. Which mainly annoyed the jugglers who wanted to see him juggle, not prance around in a tutu spinning tails.

But honestly, probably a couple of hundred spinners will be at the EJC. Maybe even more poi spinners than for example devil-stickers will be there. Yet no one minds seeing devil sticks on stage.

All i know is that spinners were among the first to offer us help, lots of them have pre-registered, and the jugglers on the team have been keeping an eye on this thread, and many have commented on how supportive spinners are. It's only fair that this art, which has evolved a huge amount in a short time, is represented.

Besides, if the jugglers don't want poi at the EJC, fine - i quit! wink

Posted:As a real cynical technical juggler, who enjoyed Thomas Dietz's act pulling the piss out of poi at the EJC in France, I am kind of afraid to post here, but...
In the 2 EJC's I've been to, I've often been disappointed by poi performances. I think that is largely because I've been spoiled at local conventions in Ireland - the quality of poi routines I've seen here is as ambrosial as could be found anywhere in the world.

A good poi routine can be as dazzling and entertaining as the best technical juggling imaginable, I'm looking forward with relish to seeing performances from talented Irish spinners, and I hope that you HOPers are well represented from far-flung frontiers, and that my misconceptions are hung out to dry.

PS if people who post here regularely are HOPers, does that make me a no-HOPer?
