Don't worry, Bungay Balls Up is definitely happening.
Coming of age at 21 years old.
I was on BBC Radio Suffolk today being interviewed about it.
Juggling slot starts at 1hr 9 mins.
The best bit was the panic when the presenter dropped a satsuma on the mixing desk and wasn't sure what she had turned off.
You can also hear a loud clunk at one point when I hit myself on the head with a club. LOL.
Just read the link.
''All the usual splendidness: 24-hr big top, on-site catering, loos, showers, sauna, games-a-go-go, comfy chairs, croquet, a sky for throwing things up into, oodles of outdoor space, buttercups, the occasional passing wildlife, a great locale with loads of nearby attractions to visit. Show on the second Saturday, hopefully a return of Fight Night on the second Sunday. And anything you care to add.''
I must say, I'm particularly looking forward to watching people ''passing wildlife''.
I must accept some responsibility for people passing wildlife.
My venison stew was popular though.
Good job, Monte. I'm a bit surprised you managed to go the whole thing without mentioning trebuchets though.
Is this really the first thread on this year's BBU? We're slacking, obviously.
All the usual excellent stuff is planned, and with several other conventions missing or time-shifted this year, that's all the more reason for you all to make the effort to head to Suffolk this May. See you all in a field!
I didn't really get much time to talk about what we get up to at the Balls Up. No croquet, ping pong, board games or medieval siege weapons got a mention.
TBH, I don't think it will actually get us any new faces at this year's convention anyway. I'll try to remember to get Georgy to give us a plug nearer the time though.
Hopefully, some of the Broxford regulars will show up this year as they have no other full-length convention to go to. Be nice to see some of the old faces turn up.
