Jenny had the idea of a new twist on the classic Scrambled V patterns: The juggler walking over to change the feeder now walks through the pattern to the other side, instead of around the outside. In other words, B walks to stand by A’s right, not to A’s left.
On the passing Con in Göttingen, Lisa showed us a nice pattern from Austria (from Wolfgang Schebeczek). The pattern comes with the nice twist of throwing two clubs simultaneously, while the rest of the pattern stays asynchronous. The walking pattern follows the standard counterclockwise change.
A new takeout pattern based on a period 9 base pattern with 7 clubs. I designed the base pattern specifically for Shorty so we could have an ambidextrous manipulator pattern that is hard to juggle but easy to remember.
Not the newest, but still a nice Pattern for 4 jugglers. 🙂
It’s called Kennedy and there are two versions available. They are similar but some actions take part at different time. This is the “Helicopter” version where the manipulator rotates while handing over a club to the other manipulator.
We couldn’t find a video of this variant somwhere online. So we filmed this one. We had a lot of fun filming it. 🙂
Sorry Barbara. I simply forgot to post it on passing.zone. So for all others. This is already a little bit older recorded in spring 2021.
Like other about-patterns, Why Not About has 12 starting positions: 3 persons x 2 positions (straight and cross passes) x 2 sides on which the manipulator can start (left or right of B). With a period of 15 beats between the manipulator changes, a full round takes 180 beats (and 42 seconds) before all jugglers have again reached their starting position.
Another “little” 4-handed siteswap passing with Zaps. Great for warming up, super nice outdoors pattern, even with windy conditions.
We survived the first year of the pandemic, we are healthy, we are allowed to have a super tiny little juggling convention and we can still pass.
