September is here!


Wow!  Another year for our juggling club begins.  It was a great summer.

We took our two sons to Karlsruhe, Germany, for the European Juggling Convention.  Four days with thousands of other prop droppers in 30 degree weather.  It doesn’t get any better than this (at least for me).   We arrived in Karlsruhe in the early afternoon on the Tuesday and as soon as we had left our luggage in the hotel Rio we took the tram to the Europahalle.  I was there from 4:00 to 9:00 that evening before heading back for a shower and some much needed sleep.  

The next morning after a quick bite I arrived at the Europahalle at 8:30 to warm up on the floor.  After doing a two hour contact juggling workshop and finishing at about 2:30, I realized I had yet to see any of my family that day.  It was not entirely surprising though, given the size of the area around the site devoted to juggling.  I don’t know how many acres, but there were lots.  Something for everyone.  Simply Google ” ejc2008″ for a look at a map of the site.

We left Karlsruhe on the train after 7:00 P.M. on the Friday, after being totally inspired by, well, everything. They sure know how to throw a juggling convention!  I slept amazingly well that night.  Looking forward to sharing some of our experiences with club members on Saturday at the school at 1:00 P.M.  Hope you can be there.

P.S. The ejc2009 is in the Basque region in Spain.  If you are anywhere nearby, drop in.  You’ll LOVE it.  Paul
