Flying Clipper is please to announce our continued participation in this years’ Asheville Juggling Festival. This years festival is September 26-28th. Our good friend Peter Irish will be headlining the festivals’ Saturday Night Extravaganza. That means a lot to us since Peter uses handmade juggle balls designed especially for him by Flying Clipper. Flying Clipper will be donating a five ball set of Tossaball Hybrid juggle balls to this years’ raffle.

Here is Asheville Juggling Festivals’ announcement for Peter Irish:

Special Guest: Each year we get an amazing performer/group to headline our Saturday Night Variety Extravaganza and teach some great workshops. This year we are honored and excited to say that Peter Irish will be our headliner! Peter is a champion juggler and footbagger, and he seamlessly weaves those two disciplines together to produce acts that are both mesmerizing and inspiring. Plus, Peter is just an all around great guy. You do not want to miss the opportunity to see him perform and/or take a workshop. Did we mention how excited we are to have him!

This years two biggest juggle events in the world were held back to back starting with the European Juggling Convention and culminating with the IJA festival giving jugglers two solid weeks of juggling fun. While Flying Clipper did not attend, we did enjoy having some of our friends give away a total of 67 Phat Tyre juggle balls. Our thanks go out to Steve Mills and Ultan Sharkey for their help at EJC as well as Bennett Santora, Bill Coad and Jonah Botnivic-Greenhouse for their help at IJA and for putting smiles on the faces of quite a few jugglers.

The word about the uniqueness of our Phat Tyre juggle balls is spreading due to grassroots efforts on the part of our friends and we thank them for their support. Keep doing what you do, and we will keep doing what we do…that is producing the best handmade juggle balls on the planet! Juggle on friends.

“Hello Jim!  I am enjoying  them so much! Hear in Rome the weather is great and juggling outdoors is the best! I love them and the red color too :) 
Thanks for your email!”

Thanks for the good word Paola and have fun at this years EJC.

Madskillz… Again Only Better!

Welcome to Madskillz Vancouver, a spectacular festival featuring a dazzling array of ground level circus and performing arts, June 26-30, 2014 in Vancouver, B.C. Canada.

This five day event consists of multiple shows with some of the must cutting edge artists in this field, evening Renegade shows and Glow Jams, and a diverse daytime workshop schedule for beginners to advanced artists.

The highlight of our festival is on Saturday evening, when featured local and international guests take to the stage at the Russian Hall for a night of incredible mind-blowing performances at our Gala Show.

Come join us for our fifth amazing year…again only better!!!
