Today was the main day of 29th Annual Groundhog Day Jugglers Festival in Atlanta. It was the first time I went and it was awesome. There were so many good jugglers in attendance. Almost everyone was exceedingly friendly and was willing to help out others not quite as good as themselves. For instance, I was able to talk to Ted Joplin about diabolos. Ted did an amazing diabolo routine that won him a Phil (the award at this event). I got a recommendation from him about the kind of diabolo to get:
I priced it out on http://www.jugglingstore.com/ and it comes out to $108. Yikes! Of course, with that kind of money, it helps to know that it is worth it.

- The Giant tuning set for the Henrys Circus Diabolo
- Henrys Carbon Handsticks Short (again, white)
- Henrys Yellow Diabolo String
