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.

The Ann Arbor Juggling Arts Festival is slated for Saturday May 10th at Wide World Sports Center 2140 Oak Valley Drive Ann Arbor Michigan. We have sent a five ball set of our popular Phat Tyre Pro 90 juggle balls with logo pouch as a donation for the festival raffle. We love sending these juggle balls out and and seeing the response we get. Jugglers are recommending us to others and that is about the highest compliment that can be given and we appreciate it. Our motto here is “When jugglers talk, Flying Clipper listens”.

Flying Clipper wants to thank the festival staff for putting on a great event and allowing us to participate.

“It’s time! Time once again for the…*whew*…~FOURTH Annual~ Juggling and Fire Arts Convention at Vassar College hosted by the Barefoot Monkeys! Join us on May 10th & 11th for two days of workshops, games, vendors, prizes, a Saturday night performance, and *ACTUAL FIRE THIS TIME!* Last year you all totally blew away all of our expectations in terms of attendance, talent, vendors, and just overall positive energy – and this year we want it to be even bigger! Like always, this event is totally free to attend! We’ll be looking into providing crash space for as many people as possible, as well as travel compensation to our teachers and performers – stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks and months. For now, mark it on your calendars, invite your friends…and spread the word!”
