We have an update from the Pocono Juggle Festival which concluded last weekend. From the word we hear, this was a fantastic event and fun was had by all. Bennett Santora did his Snowman Series workshop and act at the festival, also winning second place in the “Best Trick” contest. Congrats Bennett on a great performance using our Phat Tyre Pro 70 juggle balls. Bennett also gave away a set of our Pro 70′s to a participant in his workshop. Rachel Swald walked away with them. It turns out that Rachel is already a Flying Clipper fan and she has her own set of Tossaball Hybrid juggle balls to prove it!

Thanks to the Pocono Juggle Festival staff and Bennett Santora for  promoting juggling and our line of Phat Tyre juggle balls. By the way, the sign in the photo “FBMKIS” stands for “Four Ball Multiplex Kick-up Into Sync” which is one of Bennetts’ trademark moves.
