18.04.2001 - Landshut + Jolley StickFellow devilstickers ! In this newsletter I would like to inform you about the juggling convention in Landshut, Germany and would like to introduce a new devilstick game. It was a great convention for devilstickers. Approx. 130 jugglers came to Bavaria and there were 15 devilstickers, some of them playing with two devilsticks. We had a workshop "cigar box like devil stick tricks" and an intermediate devil stick workshop. Markus was the winner of the games, devil stick limbo. Christoph performed in the public show with a wonderful devil stick routine. During the convention we developed a new devil stick game: jolley stick. It's like volley ball or volley club, but played with a devilstick. You have to play the devilstick over a net into the opposite field. Each competitor only uses one handstick. The service has to be a propeller throw and must not touch the net. You can throw back the devilstick in every plane you want (propeller, helicopter, saw). Every point counts, after 5 points service changes like at table tennis. A game is finished at 21 points. The devilstick is outside the field, if the first contact of both ends is outside the field. So if the first contact of the left end or the first contact of the right end of the stick is in the field, it's ok - no matter where the devilstick is coming to rest. The field size is 3x3 meter wich is approx. 10x10 ft. The net height is 1,50m or 5 feet. During the european juggling convention we will have our first jolley stick competition !
03.03.2001 - Convention-Report HIFellow Devilstickers ! Here some informations about the 16th Hawaiian Juggling Festival. It was held at Camp Mokuleia on the North Shore of the island Oahu (18.-25.02.2001). Most jugglers of the past festival at Spencers (Big Island, 1999) came back this year. Not much devilstickers were there, but a wonderful festival again. Relaxing, juggling, ocean kayak, whale whatching, big waves, hiking and more... There was no *spam* show this year ;-) but a renegade and lots of live music bands. In the public show I did performe with the same routine as in NZ one week ago. Some pictures and more infos about the festival are available at http://www.hawaiianjugglingfestival.com/ Finally I would like to inform you about a posting of Seth Golub in rec.juggling: Seth Golub wrote in rec.juggling (24.02.2001): "new devil stick(ish) pictures and movies online I just put some new photos and movies up on my web site. There are photos of some of the strange props I've made and movies of me using some of them. I also made a movie of me doing one of my favorite devil stick tricks. It's all in here: http://www.aigeek.com/devil-stick/"
24.02.2001 - Convention-Report NZFellow Devilstickers ! In this newsletter I would like to inform you about the New Zealand Juggling Festival in Paekakreki (15.-18.02.2001). The convention was close to a beach 40 km north of Wellington, there were 120-130 jugglers. Some good devilstickers were there. Irene from Austria (she's livin in NZ and Australia now) is really good, Leila who organized the festival (can play two devils with 4 handsticks) and Matthew, a flowerstick player from New Zealand. He performed at the renegade show undressing his T-Shirt while juggling his flowerstick. I held a devilstick workshop for all levels, Metthew was helping me. We both were the devilstick-finalists at the olympics: propeller-endurance, after a few minutes I tried to put his hat over his eyes, I'm really sorry because his devilstick was falling down by this action ;-). During the public show I performed with one and two devilsticks and a sparkling stick. Irene performed also with an black light act twirling two devilsticks with her fingers. It was a good public show and a really nice convention. If you are planning to visit New Zealand in the next years I really would recommend this festival. February is also a very good time to travel through New Zealand. I am now at the Hawaiian juggling festival, information will be posted soon...
