We will not be able to count so I think time is still the benchmark but if you say 2 years for 30 seconds then lets say 10 secs in 2012

To be honest if you do 10 seconds I"ll buy you 3 drinks (matched by Des of course)

A friend of mine juggles, and he"s rather good.

He"s been teaching a couple of people at work, and he gave two pieces of advice...

1. Practice over a bed - continually bending down to pick up your balls (oooeerrrr missus) off the floor could seriously give you back ache.

And...

2. Start by throwing two balls between your hands to establish a rhythm.

Good luck Stuart, I"m looking forward to a juggling performance with 3 balls in Bolton...

Thanks Ian.

I can already juggle 3 and do a few "tricks" but I need to seriously work on consistency if I have any hope of doing 5.

I do practice over a bed, much to Amanda"s annoyance if she is still in it.  :o

Are you going to add to the offers made so far by Des (a drink, maybe) and Ger (3 drinks for 10 seconds)?

Instead of juggling Stuart ,you should maybe take up something that more fits in with your age.I suggest kniting.

You have to show what progress you make at every live APAT event in season 5 on APAT TV

There would have to be some serious donations to charity for this to happen!

I'm sure the APAT community would dig deep

Still requires some fine tweaks but my 25 step plan is as follows:

1. 3-ball cascade [I can do this]
2. 2-balls right hand, columns, outward and inward [I can do this but not very well]
3. 2-balls left hand, columns, outward and inward [I can sort of do this, but not very well]
4. 4-ball flash* [I can sometimes do this, but not very well]
5. 4-ball fountain [I can"t do this, or any that follow]
6. 3-ball flash in 5 ball pattern (right)
7. 3-ball flash in 5 ball pattern (left)
9. 3-ball flash in 5 ball pattern with clap (right)
10. 3-ball flash in 5 ball pattern with clap (left)
11. 3-ball flash from 3-ball cascade (right) (Siteswap 55500)
12. 3-ball flash from 3-ball cascade (left)
13. 4-ball asynchronous crossing flash (right) (Siteswap 55550)
14. 4-ball asynchronous crossing flash (left)
15. 3-ball snake (Siteswap 50505)
16. 4-ball crossing flash during steady 4-ball fountain
17. 5-ball flash (right)
18. 5-ball flash (left)
19. 6 throws, 6 catches
20. 7 throws, 7 catches
21. 8 throws, 8 catches
22. 9 throws, 9 catches
23. 10 throws, 10 catches (this is now officially a "juggle", i.e each ball thrown and caught twice)
24. demonstrate step 23.
25. enjoy drink bought by Des.  ;D



* a flash is throwing and catching each ball once.

You really are serious.   :D


Once we announce Season 5 schedule, we can build in some live demonstrations of how far you have progressed.

Happy to throw a drink or two at it along the way.



(Let"s see you juggle then, with glassware heading in your direction.   ;D )

First set back potentially on it"s way.

Been told by the GP today I need an operation on my shoulder.  :(

I have a subacromial impingement which has been bothering me for a couple of years now but has gotten gradually worse over the last 6 months.

So far I have had 5 steroid injections, 2 courses of anti inflammatory pills, 12 sessions of physiotherapy and an x-ray.

Back to the specialist next week to get his view but  an operation could set me back 6-weeks - fml.

Sorry to hear that Stuart, didn"t realise Des" powers stretched as far as subacromal impingements.

The things that man will do to not pay for a drink.


Which shoulder ?  I hope it"s not your drinking arm ?
