It was Chocfest on Saturday, it was brilliant!

Thank you so much for running such a great convention, I look forward to
seeing you all next year!

High:
The Venue was perfect, such a lovely place to hang out and juggle.
The attendance, someone opened a can of people!
Gladiators (was it really about 2hours?)
The club imprint on my ankle, hurt like hell but so funny!
The Show.

Low:
Getting a bruised thumb.
The hot chocolate machines being fussy and then dispensing a cup of hot
water instead. =(
Forgetting the Lestival Flyers, Doh!

Goal:
Hit my 7-ball record. Fail - it was definatey a fluke.
Win an endurance game. Fail - Team shreddie are just too good!

Crush:
Tiff.
Team Shreddie Crunch.
Chocolate cake makers. =)

Bane:
None.

You should all come to Lestival in May!

Jon
(Saturday 5th May, be there! http://leicesterjugglers.org/lestival)

H
passing 9 clubs with (Belgian) Martin
remembering (and still able to juggle) a nice 633 in bouncing.
driving over the M62 with snow on the hills
Confusing people with my new multiplexes

L
Getting really confused arriving, then realising we weren't in the same
venue as last year.

G
None - but I did take part in a five ball endurance for the first time in
ages.

C is for Chocolate Cake

B
Hitting my head on the boot of my car - but thanks Lewis - all my
silicones were in my bag.

Ooooo go on then I'll join in...

Highs:
Trick share with Jon Peat, always a mindf*ck. Oh and sorry about the
impeccible ankle injury with the screw imprint :P
Mega-beast gladiators sessio.
Allan and Gemma's performance.

Lows:
How quick it seemed to go by (b'awwwwwwww).
Heater fan breaking in the car, freezing drive home.
Cam Stradeski not being there.
(None of the above are to do with the actual convention, nice.)

Goals:
Do some good three clubs stuff - check - thanks to Jon
Be impressed by something Josh Turner pulls out of the bag - check.

Crush:
The pyramid cake was too good.

Bane:
The aforementioned speedy relative passage of time.
