STAR – you follow me?!

juggled @ Freiburg Mai 2016

Anoth­er new pat­tern – don´t know where it comes from, actu­ally. It´s not Ed´s, this time, so I don´t have the nota­tion either.

The base pat­tern is a 4 per­son shoot­ing star in 4count and with only 10 clubs. Before run­nig, each jug­gler passes until hav­ing only 1 (not 2) clubs left, then runs halfway to receice a second club and runs into the gap to receive the third club he needs to start passing 4 count again.

Into this base pat­tern are added 2 per­sons with each 2 clubs, each doing a round­about on jug­glers that are not cur­rently run­ning.

As there are now times where neigh­bor­ing jug­glers wait with each 2 clubs, the "swobs" are intro­duced: before start­ing to run, each jug­gler exchanges both his clubs with the jug­gler to his right, who just arrived from run­ning. After run­ning, each jug­gler con­sequently has to swob his clubs with the jug­gler to his left.

Still bored? Well, the last step is easy: At the start of the run­ning sequence, do a steal-replace (sub­sti­tute) of a self of the jug­gler who will pass to you the short "halfway" pass imme­di­ately after that.

Share with your friends and juggle together!
