If you’ll forgive the advertisement for the Juggle-in…
RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology, located in Rochester, NY) is holding
it’s 24th Annual Spring Juggle-in on April 6th, 7th, and 8th 2001. This is a
huge juggling convention (we had over 400 people last year), but this year will
be the first in over 10 years where unicycling will be actively encouraged.
The juggle-in is free (only the performances cost you money, and at $10/$5, it’s
an amazing deal for the tallent performing)
Further info can be found at: http://www.rit.edu/~jugwww/
Unicycles will not be allowed in the main juggling area, as it has a very nice
floor. I have arranged for another area where I plan on teaching a begining
unicycling workshop, and am hopeful, some skilled unicyclists will show up and
show me a thing or two. If the weather is nice, we may do some things outside as
well. As this is the first year with unicycles, I will have to see who shows up,
and play things by ear.
Even if you don’t juggle, you’ll have a chance to see some of the best jugglers
in the northeast, and learn from just about anyone around.
There will also be shows, with performances by Tom Murphy, Jay Gilligan (I hear
he can ride a unicycle ), and Fusion. Tickets will be $10 ($5 children) for
the big Saturday show with Jay Gilligan and Tom Murphy, and $5 for the Sunday
show with Fusion.
If you have any questions, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org (or you can
just reply to this – I just check the other e-mail box more frequently)
Also, I would like to thank the Drummonds at the Unicycle Source for generously
donating to our equiptment raffel. (That’s right, folks, buy a raffel ticket for
$1 and you can win a new unicycle, or perhaps some fine juggling props as well.)
Good day, Jeff Lutkus RIT Juggling and Unicycling Club President
