I was wondering if one of the jugglers on the list could direct me in the
way of a juggling mailing list. My (very limited) usnet provider doesn’t
have rec.juggling so I need to search other routes for access to the online
juggling community. Is there an e-mail list like the unicycling list for
juggling? and if so how can I get connected? I looked through “Juggler’s
World” to no avail so I am using this as a last resort. Hope you can help!

The rec.juggling FAQ answers this question, though I imagine you might have a
tough time finding a copy if you can’t access the newsgroup. Here’s an easy way:

You can obtain a copy of the FAQ by sending e-mail to, with
FILE-SERVICE as the subject and SEND FAQ.txt in the body. These commands are
case sensitive.

Here are some snippets from the sections most relevant to your problem.

  1. Is there a news to mail gateway for rec.juggling?

    Yes, send a message to with the text of the
    message reading:

    subscribe juggling <Your Name>

You absolutely must check the Juggling Information Service, which contains an
astounding amount of information. If you have WWW access, just jump right to

If you don’t, you can use the email gateway.
>From the rec.juggling FAQ:

If you do not have access to WWW, you can interact with the JIS via several
e-mail gateway services. The news service provides the ability to search and
retrieve rec.juggling posts from the beginning of the newsgroup to the

with NEWS-SERVICE in the Subject and HELP in the body of the message.

In particular, the following informative posts may be retrieved by sending
