Posted:Hi All,

Just letting you all know about the 4th Nottingham One Day convention - NAJC4:

"Oh Nuts! Nott Another Juggling Convention"

when: from 11am until 1am'ish on 7th March 2009
where: Nottingham University student's union as usual

The theme is NUTS and there will be a prize for the best nut related presentation: cakes, sculptures, biscuits etc.

More specific details to follow on the Nottingham Juggling Club website.

This year we are running our one dayer as a fund raising event to raise money for 'Performers Without Borders' who take circus skills workshops and equipment to disadvantaged children in deprived areas e.g. orphanages in India. They are regular members of the juggling community who some of you will know already. See below for more details:

http://www.performerswithoutborders.org.uk/
br>and
http://pwb.blip.tv/
br>
We already have 3 or 4 good acts booked for the show but are looking for people to offer acts to help draw more people to the convention and raise more money.

Let me know if you can help, or if you want to do some fund raising before, during or after the event e.g. sponsored continuous unicycle ride around campus or mass poi spin.

Cheers, Peachi

we'll miss you in a manly way like real men do to other men who are manly.

I would have thought with your god-like powers you could at least bend time so that you have already been to it and can tell us how it went.

Anyway, Carcasonne for sure buddy!! Stop being away so much you cosmopole wink

I cant believe peanuts are seeds... just look at their name... they would be called peaseeds if they were seeds goddamit!!

And Jo you better be there... where do you need a lift from hun?

More everything easy on the wasps, peachimpy XOX

Posted:Hey whats this.... this must be coming up soon. I am definitely going and bringing a nut based presentation... and organising a way to raise money for PWB..... and telling all my friends.... and volunteering a workshop and a piece for the show....

Thats what your all thinking right? Or are my Jedi powers running on low and the force is weak in me?

See ya all there, perhaps you can suggest a nut based presentation or two.... food, sculptures, edible art instillations... what ever wink

Cheese and nuts, Peachi

Posted:Anyone got any idea for charity stunts to pull at the NAJC4 to raise money for Performers Without Borders?

I thought a sponsored relay unicycle event or a sponsored fancy dress unicycle race.

I wonder if we can do the same thing with poi and staff spinning. Get people to sponsor a group of people to continuously spin for 4hrs or so?

Wot anyone fink?

Posted:I would sponsor that... but anything over three people high sounds like a H&S nightmare... unless you can all collapse into water... which would mean the base people being able to kneel on water... so thats Gee on the bottom.... anyone else? Nice idea though...
maybe it could be a very low long pyramid.... maybe a conga pyramid!! Need to work that one out..

Keep 'em coming... thought shower me wink

Mynci, generally we have a party back at my place afterwards but its not usually very comfortable or quiet but you can usually find a crash spot if you're not too fussy. Or stay up all night and talk rubbish with the rest of us wink

How about a monkey with GIANT testicles?


Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.
Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.

"May contain monkey Notts"

any improvements on that?
