I think a general twirling (staff/poi/...) meeting on EF would be a great idea :)

I know a few poi tricks like the Orbital or the spiral, but I'd like to learn the straightjacket and the reverse flower antispin D:

And among other things, he takes care of the chinese translations for EF17 :P

If everything fits i will come to EF, maybe there will be an announcement at the blackboard...so pls have a look.

Any updates about this? I thought if enough people were interested we could maybe turn this into a SIG for EF this year :)

dont know, is four ppl enough to build a SIG? :D
My interest is already there :D

Post by: Sinea on 22.05.2011, 12:22:38
Well, time goes by sooo fast.

I'm very interested. Just got my Flowtoys Crystal Poi a few days ago and I suck  ;D
My new staff is quite fun to play with though.

P.S.: You can edit the title of the thread yourself iirc.

Omg flowtoys crystal poi. I should really buy those someday ! They give amazing effects
I'll bring the classic glowsticks and... well, probably my Kiwidos too since it's "a bit" asian-like, it might be more suitable for the theme too :D

making a SIG would be a good idea but we need....teachers o.o

Title: Re: [EF 17] Jugglers SIG ?
Post by: Reeve on 28.05.2011, 12:53:45
Yeah but if we make a SIG we need to have something to teach/do/talk about :P
Title: Re: [EF 17] Jugglers SIG ?
Post by: nifelan on 28.05.2011, 21:20:36
I'm sure that we'll find something to talk about :)

Post by: Zefiro on 30.05.2011, 02:20:43
What would also be extremely helpful is a place to actually do this. The main stage is busy most of the time, sig rooms usually are too small and the lobby is too crowded. Best bet probably would be to go outside, behind the hotel somewhere.

Just need to make really sure we don't break anything there, don't want to leave a bad impression with the locals, do we?

*purrrr*

Mmm poi and kiwido *drools Homer Simpson style*

...what? It's not edible?  ;D

I got some pink poi, I could try to bring them along. This sounds really nice and outside would be good if it doesn't rain *lol* Did we find someone to teach this yet? Cause I got no clue what I'm doing.
Title: Re: [EF 17] Jugglers SIG ?
Post by: Sinea on 23.06.2011, 15:04:27
No there is no person who can teach a lill....so it just could be sort of have fun together.

For all those who want to do some juggling and stuff and who have some extra spare time:

One week prior to EF, the EJC - European Juggling Convention - is held in Munich. The EJC offers 9 days of workshops for absolute beginners and advanced people alike. There are also lots of performances to enjoy. Check it out at EJC-Homepage (http://www.ejc2011.org/) :)

Sadly, I neither have the time nor money for that :\
A meetup on EF would still be nice though :)

I'm not sure yet if I'll be totally infected with the poi-virus after EJC or just run away at first sight *g*

I can highly recommend the EJC, it's a great experience and lots of friendly people there. Nice atmosphere, everyone's approchable, you can learn new things in workshops or just by standing next to others, etc. If you have the time, go for it :)

Looks tempting. But as for many people here, I won't have the time nor the money for it :P

The meeting at EF would be cool. Question is more about the "when" and the "where" though.
I can teach a few basics I guess but I don't have enough poi for everyone :p.

I really wish I could find someone to teach me the Reverse Flower Antispin or the Straightjacket *grumbles and goes smash himself with his poi while trying to get it right*

Post by: vIDo on 18.07.2011, 15:16:07
this sounds very interesting, this is my first time going to EF, and it sounds like I should bring my juggling gear..  I just ordered a new pair of led poi and I hope they'll be here before EF.

I'm guessing fire-poi/Fire breathing isn't a good idea?

any who, I'd be there. :3 it's always more fun to spin together.. ^^

Grtz, vIDo.

(now where did I put my LED juggling balls.. >.>)

Indeed. We do have neither the open space nor the fire safety precautions in place for doing such activities in the middle of a city.

Post by: nifelan on 20.07.2011, 14:53:25
How do we want to organize this? Seeing how we're most likely going to keep this outside, we're heavily reliant on the current weather.
Did anyone ask for this to be an official event (with an actual day/time/location "TBA" at the con)?
Where should we look for further information at the con?
Title: Re: [EF 17] Jugglers SIG ?
Post by: Zefiro on 20.07.2011, 17:40:48
As the timetable for all events is fixed now and all depending items (EF Prime, Conbook) in the process of being finalised, it's too late for making it an official event.

We could ask whether there is a pinboard to put up a sign. I thought there was something like this at earlier EFs, but didn't notice last EF.

I'd propose Thursday or Friday, either noon (12:00) or 17:30, what would you folkz fit better?

Also, depending on what we want to juggle, we might want to ask security beforehand out of curtesy.

Is someone willing to take a lead here, i.e. organize the event? I assume we're all beginners, we just need someone to decide on the time and double-check with the orga / security. I'm not sure I'll have the time to attend myself, but if you want, I can do this. Also, you can of course always gather spontanously whenever you're interested, agreeing on a time just lets us find together more easily :)

Edit: I think outside, back side of the hotel is the only viable option. If it's raining, bad luck.

*purrrr*
Title: Re: [EF 17] Jugglers SIG ?
Post by: Reeve on 01.08.2011, 18:56:35
Outside is a must. I really don't see us doing this inside the hotel. Not only would it probably be forbidden, but even practically, we wouldn't have enough space for it :p

The little area behind the hotel seems good. Also, there IS a pannel on which we can leave messages for other people. We could just decide what's the best moment on the spot, according to the EF schedule

Afternoon seems like a good idea to me for an "official" meet. Although I'll probably be poïng around here and there. Kiwidos are in the theme this year after all :D
And if someone can teach me that GOD DAMN STRAIGHTJACKET move, i'd be really grateful xD *frustrated lion*
Title: Re: [EF 17] Jugglers SIG ?
Post by: nifelan on 03.08.2011, 02:35:25
I do hope that there's going to be a note or something - I can already see everyone waiting for a note to be posted but nobody actually posting such a note ;)

Alternatively we could just meet every day  ;D
Title: Re: [EF 17] Jugglers SIG ?
Post by: Zefiro on 04.08.2011, 14:59:01

Sure, but if we want to meet each other we shouldn't just randomly show up. So a posting somewhere would be helpful.

I'd suggest Friday, 13:00 to 14:00. That's directly after the fursuit parade and before all the panels start. If that's too much in the heat of the day, Friday 17:30 to 18:30, which is just between the panels and the evening program, might also fit. Though getting something to eat might be a good idea, too :)

The same times on the other days might work as well, so I would suggest those for daily meetings.

I consulted with Security and they don't see an issue with us doing some staff twirrling or POI, just reminded that the actual green behind the hotel might not be that big, so we should be a bit cautionous about traffic. And not use fire, for obvious reasons :)

This is not an official meeting, so it won't be in the con book. So if you wanna meet, grab a piece of paper and put up a sign. Or print it out in advance. Since I might be needed elsewhere I cannot officially "run" this. I'm pretty sure it doesn't actually need to be "run", either, but putting up a time seems like a good idea nonetheless. Please, feel free to do so.

*purrrrr*

Post by: nifelan on 04.08.2011, 16:31:13
Friday 13:00 - 14:00 sounds fine to me. It's usually a bit hectic before the evening program - at least for me :)
Title: Re: [EF 17] Jugglers SIG ?
Post by: Reeve on 05.08.2011, 21:23:23
Seems good to me too, but seeing how tight the schedule will be, I can't confirm i'll be there for sure.
Anyways, if someone could put a note on the pannel to make sure everyone gets the message, that'd be helpful too. Am a lion, don't ask me to remember stuff because that never works :P

Oh and if it's just after the parade I "might" be in suit >.>
Fursuit POI is alawys fun anyways :p

So when is it? :3
Title: Re: [EF 17] Jugglers SIG ?
Post by: Zefiro on 23.08.2011, 21:15:09
So when is it? :3
It was at Friday, around 1pm. There was a printed note at one of the glass elevators. Though apparently it said 12:00 - 13:00, whereas I had the 13:00 - 14:00 slot in mind and arrived at 1pm. There were about 3 others still there and we had a bit of fun, though nothing really big was going on any more.

Apparently the rest of the con was too interesting for everyone :)

It would still be nice to do it again next year.

(oh, and I wouldn't assume that many persons read the forums while at the con)

I certainly didn't which is why I remembered the time incorrectly but still waited for past 1 o'clock pm when more people showed up :)
It would be nice to have this as an official event in the conbook next year.

Totally agree here !

And by the way, does anyone know who is this juggler I met, I think his name was "Zero-01"
I think he was German. We juggled a bit outside that meeting but now I can't find him anywhere, even on FA :3
