Ooo Hi Mark
I think some of us canberra'ie circus people are going to make the treck up the high way for this. Well I hope so any way.

Jane.

ps. Thanks for teaching us that rad floor rolling juggling last time you were down here, we are using a similar concept in one of our shows now but with wine glasses instead, it is very addictiave.

that is so exciting.... one of my favourite versions i saw in the past uses flash lights... but i think wine glasses would be excellent... are you going to perform it at the convention?

smile People usually sign up to run workshops on the first or second day of the festival. There will be a wide variety, including stuff for beginners. You should be absolutely fine.

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Mac - you missed a great first day... tongue tongue tongue slacker...



Well that was fantastic!!!



Definitely worth travelling down for!



Excellent to see the handful of other HOPpers there! (Though where was Mr Majestik

??)



Cheers Mark for Crash space and use of the pool / hot tub! Never expected to be skinny-dipping on the first night!



Still can't juggle for sh*t but was definitely inspired by a lot of the stuff on display. (Marco had me at the stuffed frog...)



Roll on NZJC!
