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.
Flying Clipper recently awarded a five ball set of our Phat Tyre Pro 90 juggle balls to Paola Levi Della Vida of Rome Italy for winning a pre-registration contest for the European Juggling Convention next month in Ireland. After receiving his prize, we contacted him to see if he liked the balls. Here is his answer:
“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.
