I used to live in Nassau County, and also Level 7, but with no aspirations
to learn the Hand Wheel Walk. But I play a Level 9 on TV (in the Skill
Levels video). I don’t think any of the riders I knew at that time reached
7, but I did know a number of riders who generally knew more skills than
the King Charles riders I met over the years. Mostly they were very solid
riders who only knew a few tricks, and whatever was required for their
shows. Later generations of that group probably had much larger
repitoires.

I knew that YOU are an all-but-HWW-level-10’er, but since you aren’t here
any longer, that doesn’t qualify! Among the current KC members, I have
been told that there are lots of folks who can do outstanding tricks, but
since I have never met these people (and I have met over a dozen KC’ers),
I am not sure what to believe. I can say that anyone dedicated enough can
learn gliding and the like, but I have never met anyone out here who could
do any stuff above level 5. The coolest thing is that young lady in our
group who went to circus camp and quickly advanced thru levels 1-5. With
dedication, she could easily surpass my level. So I am wondering if there
is anyone around here who has already done so. But so far, the East Coast
pales in comparison to the TCUC and its incredible membership.

Perhaps you will change that :slight_smile: It sounds like your club is having some
success. If you continue to find members with such dedication, I am sure
your club will see similar greatness. …the only hard part about that is
the waiting.
