May 1978                                                           Vol. 30 No. 3



I have been to visit Convention Co­chairmen Tom Dewart and Larry Wakeman in Eugene four times, and I am impressed with their extensive preparations for the July convention. The main room at the Valley River Inn is large and well suited to our purposes. Eugene is a friendly city and supports a substantial community of jugglers. Tom, Larry, and friends are to be commended for their work and attention to detail.


A respectable number of talented people are performing as groups or solo acts in the San Francisco Bay Area, including: The Pickle Family Circus Jugglers, with Peggy Snider, Cecil MacKinnon, and Larry Pisani; The Bay City Reds, with Merle Goldstone, Wendy Parkman, Bill Kessler, and Jeff Rza; The Flying Karamazov Brothers; The 'Fly-by-Night Jugglers; The Juggling Mizmos, with Fred Anderson and Kit Trueblood; The Juggling Merlitz Brothers; The Portland Family Circus, on tour (rom Oregon; Caught in the Act, with Hillary Carlip; Jolly Wolly Wonder

Follies; Ray Jason; The Amazing Kristavo; Michael Davis; Whitney Brown, Lee Grodsky; Zu Zu Ha Ha; Bill Garvin; and Bill Barr.


My Berkeley class is alive and thriving. Karl-Heinz Ziethen should be visiting in May. We were recently video taped successfully doing a sixteen person feed (48 clubs) in two positions: a straight forward feed wiih one leader, and two jugglers back-to-back feeding fourteen others arranged in a circle. Imagine our elation as sixteen clubs went up in unison for our finish. Several carloads of us are hoping to go to Eugene, and we are looking forward to a fine convention.
