Battle for the WJF Presidency Contender Announced!
No Resignation Match
In 2008, Jason Garfield attempted to defend his Presidency against a German named Thomas Dietz. Jason failed, and Thomas Dietz became the WJF President. For about 5 minutes. Thomas resigned after returning home because he didn't have the time to fulfill the details in the contract that he wrote up and signed. In our final show of WJF 6, Jason Garfield will defend his presidency against a new challenger. Noah Malone will take on the WJF President in a no resignation match series of competitions that will challenge their strength, intelligence, creativity, concentration, agility, dexterity...oh yes, and juggling ability. This show will also feature other performances such as Josh Horton and Doug Sayers' team competition routine. See it at WJF 6 first! Falco Sheffler and Pavel Evsukevich will also perform along with a few surprise performers. This will be a highly dramatic, past paced, and energetic variety show - the finale of our event. The audience will play a vital role in several of the competitions so make sure to line up early to get in on the action first hand. The winner of the Battle for the WJF Presidency will be named WJF President for 2010 / 2011.

Beginner Juggling Workshop Station at WJF 6
We plan on having an extremely high number of beginning jugglers from Las Vegas in attendance. They will be interested in learning how to juggle three balls. I will be teaching several beginner workshops in addition to the intermediate workshops but I'd like to have an ongoing station for beginner lessons so I will need some help. If anyone is interested in helping to teach at a beginning juggling station, please let me know and I'll put together a schedule for this station. Let me know how much time you'd like to teach for and how many days you'd like to be on the schedule.
Any Trick You Want to Learn Workshop at WJF 6 - Limit 20 students (10 per workshop)
I will be leading this workshop on any trick you want to learn but due to time restraints I can only accept 10 people per workshop. I'll be doing it twice during the convention so there will be space for 20 people total. The workshop is included in the cost of the convention package so you just need to be the first 20 people to email me and let me know you want to take the workshop and I'll reserve your spot and let you know which day you'll be taking the workshop. Make sure to include what you want to learn in your email so that I can confirm it's something I'm qualified to teach. Be prepared to work on exercises. For example, if you say you want to learn 5 club backcrosses and I see problems with your 3 club backcrosses, I will work on your 3 club backcrosses because that will be the step you're ready to work on before you move on to more difficult steps (Such as 4 and 5 club exercises). Email your request to attend the workshop to firstname.lastname@example.org
WJF 6 rates increase on June 1st, 2010 - then again on July 1st! Register Now!!!
WJF 6 registration numbers are currently at 87, not including comps. Comps brings the number up to a little over 100. We have a great group of previous and new WJF attendees. These numbers are very encouraging with over a month to go but we still need to fill some more rooms at the Riviera to avoid penalties so when you register, please take advantage of the $49/night room rates at the Riviera.
The promotion of this event is getting a lot of people very excited. We even added a dinosaur to our latest promo video. A dinosaur! How many other juggling events can include a dinosaur into their promo and not use it as a metaphor? Our dinosaur traveled through time, where the sands of the desert meet the high-tech colorful and reflective realm of the World Juggling Federation.
