Tassie Circus Fest 2009

Friday, January 30th, 2009

The HalfBaked Crew are off to Tassie tonight for the Tassie Circus Fest. 

We’re all very excited to be teaching there.  And, like always, catching up with people we haven’t seen since the last fest. We’re also bringing Festival tshirts!

I still have to come up with a festival trick goal.  Maybe some kind of 5club endurance?  Or 9club ultimates?  Or does eating blueberry pancakes every day for a week count as a trick?

The Glebe

The SJC is front page news in The Glebe newspaper.  There are lots of cool photos as well as an article.  Check it out online if you can’t get a copy.

SJC 09 is huge success!

Well, wasn’t that fun!

The Convention was great and the Sirkus Circus Show was the best thing ever.   We can’t say thankyou enough to the performers and crew who helped make it all happen.

Should we do it all again next year?

Today we all did very well, all our guests have made it to Australia.  We took Ivan on a sightseeing tour of Sydney which he enjoyed immensely, but maybe not quite as much as the hog.

Newtown Juggling pre SJC

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

How busy was Newtown Juggling Club tonight?  It was full of all kinds of exciting people.  Most of them were from Perth.  And Conan the Bubbleman was there. I haven’t seen him for years!

Remember there is juggling in Hyde Park on Friday.  Look for jugglers on the corner of Park and Elizabeth St from around 2pm.

There is also the Official SJC09 Welcome Barbeque. It’s invite only, so come down to the park or contact Dale through the website.

Sirkus Circus

How exciting is it that Tempei is coming to the Sydney Juggling Convention?  The Sirkus Circus show is going to be the best thing ever.  Even Dale wants to go to the show!

Remember you can prepurchase tickets in the HalfBaked store or from:

Make sure you get some for your friends and family if you are coming to the SJC before they sell out.

Today we did a poster run for SirkusCircus.  It involved breakfast in Glebe and a pub in Newtown.  We did lots of work…really….

Also thanks to Tynan who is the latest HalfBaked Crew helper.  He folded about fifty tshirts for us.  Cheers!


More and More T-shirts

Friday, January 9th, 2009

We received the SJC09 tshirts today.  They are good.  We know you like surprises though, so you don’t get to see them until the convention!

T-shirts for the Tassie Circus Festival are almost completed too.

Mmmmmm…..festivals…….I’m so excited!

The HalfBaked Crew had fun at the Peats Ridge Festival over New Years.  There were more jugglers than you could poke a club at, and lots of new jugglers after our workshops.

Here are some pictures….
