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.

Flying Clipper has donated a seven ball set of Phat Tyre 12 juggle balls to give away to some lucky juggler at this years Austin Juggle Fest. The festival dates are February 21 -23 at the Texas School for the Deaf.

We are happy to again be part of this years’ festival. Bennett Santora will be a special guest at the festival and also be doing his own workshop. He prefers to use our Phat Tyre juggle balls in his performances. We sent him a set to give away while at the  festival. I know it will be fun for him and it is our pleasure to help promote both juggling and Bennett Santora. Here is his press release:

 

Bennett Santora was created by a group of mad scientists who were intent on taking over the world by installing jugglers in key leadership positions.  He was designed to be witty, intelligent, charming and to have super-natural juggling ability.  He is being groomed to take over the world military industrial complex and convert all weapons production to production of juggling props.  At present he is an entertainer and 3rd grader.  He lives in New York City.

Happy juggling to all from Flying Clipper and have fun at this years festival.

Record rainfall did not dampen the spirits of hundreds of jugglers who descended on Reed College for the 21st annual Portland Juggle Festival. Flying Clipper is the only vendor to attend every festival. Many local jugglers around the Portland-Eugene area are long time friends and supporters of Flying Clipper and it is a joy to share time with this great group of people. As in last years festival when Flying Clipper introduced its first recycled rubber filled juggle balls, this years festival also saw an amazing amount of rubber filled juggle balls placed in the hands of hungry jugglers. Flying Clipper prides itself on innovation and we know we have hit the mark with the new Phat Tyre (recycled rubber filled) series of balls.

As we continue to perfect our line of juggle balls we are sure that the feedback we receive will translate into new and better juggle balls to show each year at the Portland festival. Consider joining us next season to see what is new as the next generation of improvements will be presented and get a chance to win a set yourself in the raffle. Thanks Portland Jugglers for another outstanding event!
