High Speed Time Travel at RIT

Making time go faster, or slower, going back in time, going back to the future,  these are things that fascinate people everywhere.  Of course when we look back in time it's always described as a "flash".
For example that great quote from Babs in the movie Chicken Run, "All me life flashed before me eyes, It was really borin'."  Well a weekend at the RIT Spring Juggle-In is never boring and now you can relive the entire 3 day event in under 6 mins!  Jay Ko of the PhillyJugglers has created a time lapse footage of last years event and you can watch all the action flash by and remember your favorite parts. Of course being there live is even better, so make sure you reserve this years dates for the 38th RIT Spring Juggle-In on April 10-12, 2015, and check out the Fbook event page, or the RIT club web site

RIT Club Night - Wednesday 2015/1/28


 RIT Juggling Club Night - Wednesday 2015/1/28
Jeff Peden
Ball juggling, club juggling, diabolo (Avery and Sebastian), devilstick (Luke), club passing (Luke, Jeff, Alex), beginners learning(Ashley), staff spinning(Harrison and friends), "pinball" style 3 ball (Jake), fast hand speed 3 ball(Quinn), it was a pretty full night if you missed out.
Speaking of "missed"  we happily welcomed back Susan Aikman, and Yasmeena  who had both been away, and we missed the presence of Danny Buonocore.

Planning for our performance at next weeks half-time show for the RIT women's basketball game on  Feb 6th. got started as well.

Alex Rozanov did a run of reverse spin mills mess with clubs for the camera .

I also got photo proof of Sam Border doing nice 4 club moves with his new white clubs.

"He could teach you, but he'd have to charge".

71 days

That's right just 71 days until the Juggle-In!
 71 is actually a pretty awesome number.
71 is the 20th prime number.
71  is also a permutable prime with 17.

And... If we add up the primes less than 71 (2 through 67), we get 568, which is divisible by 71, 8 times.
  Notice that...  8 times!  just like 7+1 = 8

71 is the number of different characters that can be used with a standard English Keyboard, excluding uppercase letters.

71 is the form number for the United States Office of Personnel Management for requesting a leave of absence. (credit to Wikipedia for much of this trivia )

The SR-71, a high altitude, high speed reconnaissance aircraft had an unrefueled range of 3,500 miles, and its two Pratt and Whitney J58 turbojets generated 60,000 pounds of thrust while guzzling 8,000 gallons of fuel per hour.

The 1971 Ford Mustang
 A 1971 Mustang Mach 1 was featured in the James Bond film, Diamonds Are Forever (1971) which was the 7th Bond movie with 1 incredible Sean Connery as Bond.

Yet-to-be-approved Juggle-In events: OZZY SAYS

Ward Hartenstein submitted this to the Facebook Event page today

Yet-to-be-approved Juggle-In events: OZZY SAYS
Of course the only reason that it's yet to be approved is that we are waiting Ozzy Osbourne's availability to attend the 38th RIT Spring Juggle-In event (April 10-12, 2015)

Yet-to-be-approved Juggle-In events: OZZY SAYS
Based on the ever popular “Simon Says” competition, this juggling event would feature iconic utterances from Black Sabbath lead singer, Ozzy Osbourne, such as:
Ozzy says, “Juggle with boots of lead to fill your victims full of dread.”
Ozzy says, “Rocket engines burning fuel so fast, juggle in the black sky so vast.”
Ozzy says, “Now you know the scene, juggle until your skin starts turning green.”
Ozzy says, “Juggle now and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry.”
Ozzy says, “Robot minds of robot slaves, juggle to atomic rage.”
Ozzy says, “Big black shapes with eyes of fire, juggle as the flames get higher!”
Ozzy says, “Take your walk of remorse, juggle in the body of a corpse.”
Ozzy says, “I’ve seen a look of evil in your eyes. Your juggling fills me full of lies.”

38th RIT Spring Juggle In -coming soon

Well the saying goes " the more things change the more they stay the same" .
 The 38th Juggle-in, on April10-12, 2015
 is no exception. For example I was backtracking through facebook and discovered promo for the 31st RIT Spring Juggle-In getting started this weekend as well. 

The other thing that stays the same is all the great times people have connecting with friends. Thats why the logo back in 2008 showed two jugglers facing each other as if they were passing

Learn something new at the 38th RIT Spring Juggle In

One of the many things I love about the Juggle-In is seeing the wide range of talents and skills all sharing the same space from beginners to pro's. Everyone gets a chance to learn something new. As usual we'll be having workshops for beginners and intermediate to advanced levels. If you'd like to lead a workshop get in touch with us at, or post something here.

This photo from the 2005 Juggle-In features a young Olga Galchenko trying out a diabolo, and a younger Rachel Peden doing rings.

The 38th RIT Spring Juggle-In is coming !

Below is a picture of the toss-up photo from 2005, 10 years ago.
10 years ago marked the first RIT Spring Juggle-In that I coordinated, along with the help of many other people, most notably Jeff Lutkus.  It was in 2005 that we had Olga Glachenko, Wes Peden, Malte Stienmetz Luke Burrage, Dave Nager and more.  It was a great show and fest. 
I'm looking forward to another incredible year once again.
