RIT Juggle-In

I just thought I’d post my quick report on the unicycling components of the
25th Annual RIT Juggle-In held this weekend.

I had the unexpected pleasure of meeting David Poznanter on Friday night,
and we rode around campus a little bit. He impressed me with his 3 ball
juggling (kung fu style!) just as much as he did on the uni. David came in
second on the Simon Says 3 Ball competition, which ended with Simon
delcaring the competition be eliminated through combat. (Incidently, if
anyone has David’s e-mail, could you let me know?)

Charles Kimberly of Cornell entered the best trick of the convention with
some trials action, which ended with him jumping off the stage on his
Monty. Unfortunately, this trick ended with the wheel in a bit more of
a ‘D’ shape than it started.

The best trick winners were Anthony Shave and Chuck Holley. It started
with juggling 3 clubs while idling on a unicycle, then the other guy
(sorry, I don’t remember who was who) jumped over his shoulders leapfrog
style, stealing the 3 clubs and continuing to juggle them.

Daren Bedford helped with the game of unicycle hockey. The game was played
for fun, not for score, and fun was indeed had by all.

And of course, there was plenty of juggling. Just a few of the people
there included Jason Garfield, Albert Lucas, Bob Nickerson, Sam Hartford,
and plenty of others. Through this convention, the RIT Juggling Club was
able to raise about $4,500 to be donated to the Dystonia Medical Research
Foundation. Hope to see you there next year!

Jeff,

That sounds awesome! I wish I could find that kind of action around here. :slight_smile: Thanks for the report!

Thanks for the report. It sounds like a fun weekend!

David has officially moved out of his former home in Nathan Hoover’s
guesthouse, in preparation for his month or so doing shows in the NYC area.
After that he is going to China for a year to study Kung Fu, of all things,
at a Shaolin temple. Yes, Grasshopper will be a-juggling and a-unicycling.

So email may not be an option. You might try Nathan Hoover as a relay point,
but wait until Nathan gets back from his own trip, at the end of this month
or so.

Good luck,
JF

Hi John.

David Poznanter just called a few minutes ago. I’m picking him up at
the Atlanta airport next week.

Jeff, if you’ll reply to this message, I’ll print your note and hand it
to him.

Best regards,

John Drummond

Oh, right, almost forgot to mention this one, as usual, we had a prop
raffle – items were donated by various vendors, with the procedes from
ticket sales going to the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation.

I must express my thanks to Unicycle.com for donating a unicycle, and the
Toronto Unicyclists for donating several t-shirts. (Did I forget
anything? If you donated or helped in any way, thanks!)

The coolest thing is a friend of mine who really wants to get into
unicycling, but can’t afford one jokingly asked me to rig the raffle for
him. Imagine my surprise when I called out his name declaring him winner
of the unicycle! (Someone else was pulling the tickets to ensure no
cheating was taking place.)

Re: RE: RIT Juggle-In

Ok, I am very upset with this group, and especially Dave Stone! Why were we not told of this sooner? I live in NYC, and would like to go and see one of his shows (BTW, what type of show is it?). As one of the founders of the Unatics, Dave, YOU are responsible for learning of, and passing on all information relating to unicycling in the NY area. Where will said show be, and how may I get tickets? Above all, how can we get Dave Poznanter to come by a Unatics meeting?

Dont mind me, I am just under LOADS of stress.
