Posted:Hi all,

The Sydney Juggling Convention 2007 is currently being organised. The dates and location are set and there's even a website.

Sydney Juggling Convention 2007

Dates: Fri 26 - Sun 28, Jan 2007

Location: SCEGGS Darlinghurst, Sydney, Australia

Cost: $100 AU for 3 days

Website: http://www.sydneyjuggling.com.au
br>
SJC 2007 has just secured SCEGGS Darlinghurst (a school sports hall) as the venue. It has all the things a juggling convention venue needs:

* High ceilings - a must for the serious numbers
* Eateries galore - just around the corner from the Darlinghurst cafe strip
* Close to transport - just around the corner from train stations and bus stops
* In the Sydney metro area.

So, check out the website, tell all your friends and get excited!

There is a contact email on the website if you have any questions

cya in Sydney...

p.s. there has been a small twirling contingent, including bluecat (rob) and firenix (rob) and steve last year, but would love to have more twirling. The more twirlers that turn up, the more twirling that will go on, including twirling workshops and performances. i hope to see you there.

Posted:Hope you all have LOTS of fun and learning
I have a feeling the SJC will be taking another step up next year. Its a shame but it appears as though I wont be there to see it. Probably doing 3 months of shows in China Mark.
But we shall get to hook-up at Woodford it appears - looking forward to catching up.
Meanwhile - hope to see as many of you Sydney-ites there and have fun at the SJC

Posted:hi all

few replies in one.

pete and moka (and others who are thinking of coming). feel free to come up a few days beforehand/after the convention (the offer of accomodation is fine for this time too). there is a juggling club on wednesday night and we are thinking of unofficially starting the convention on the thursday by juggling in hyde park (a big park in the middle of the city).

rob. congrats on getting the work in china. shame you wont be at sjc. but am definitely looking forward to woodford. see you then mate.

steaks. fingers crossed you will make it.

this is getting very exciting. no hints yet, but we are just finalising details of an international guest.

i am not sure about the t shirt thing to be honest. i will check it out.

originally the early bird included a t shirt, but they reduced the early bird and kept the t shirt seperate. and i thought you would be able to order the shirt at the same time as well, but we cant yet. as i said, ill check
