Developing youth through juggling since 1994.
JUGHEADS Journal January, 2006
In Update 2
The last time this column reviewed and tweaked policies for our new space at Colony Park Church was October 2005. Issues outlined were parking (pick-up & drop-off of kids, with a follow-up column in November); cleanliness (cleaning up snack & props); and standards (self-motivated continuous progress based on posted objective goals). This month, we'll focus on three more general areas: checking in, update on cleanliness, and departure.
Jam 8: Richfield!
It's official! The location for Juggle Jam 8 is (drumroll please)...Richfield High School! After a scheduling conflict at Hopkins High School forced us to explore other venues, Richfield was chosen due to ceiling height, seating, and affordable rent. The dates for Juggle Jam 8 are Friday and Saturday, May 12-13, with mandatory all-cast dress rehearsals on the evenings of Wednesday and Thursday, May 3-4. Thanks to parents who offered suggestions and officers who scouted our location options.
Recital: 8 weeks away!
Attached to December's Journal was a Forum written by Officer Kelvin Ying (EHS Junior) describing the benefits of any Jughead choreographing a routine. Friday, March 10 at Hopkins High School is the perfect place for a polished but not necessarily prominent Jughead act to perform for an appreciative crowd. Juggle Jam has become extremely competitive--mainly acts from Ultimate Club make it--but this upcoming recital at least doubles the opportunity for some of our up-and-coming performers who haven't the polish or experience to earn a Juggle Jam spot. E-mail/call Kelvin (firstname.lastname@example.org; 952-929-1567) for more info. or to request a "screening" of a potential act.
of the Vans
Over Thanksgiving, the Arnebergs flew to visit Paul's sister's family, the Larreas, in Miami, FL. Other than spending an otherwise chilly holiday in the warm tropics, enjoying fellowship with Jean & Ernie, Anthony, Cristina, Marcus, Joshua, Nathan, and Elisabeth, the trip served a business purpose: driving home the donation of a 15-passenger Ford Club Wagon! The Larreas purchased it in 1997 when all nine of them (Andre went home to be with the Lord in 2002) made daily use of the large vehicle. Our JH officers were the first Jugheads to make use of our new "JUGBUS" (the license plate idea of 7th grade Jughead Mark) in prep. for last month's Holiday Party, and we drove it to MadFest this month as well. Gigs, Sam's Club runs, MONDO, and other needs will be met by this gift. The Larreas consider themselves an honorary JH family, despite their 1842.5 mile commute! We thank them and God for their love and generosity.
coming up Feb. 24-26! Ultimate Club will attend on Friday evening, and
the larger group of 50-60 Jugheads will attend all day/evening on Saturday.
See attached registration.
SPOTLIGHT: Wed. Rec.
There's just something about this club: its history, its age range, its ability range, its mix of boys and girls, its spirit. Whatever it is, Wed. Rec. consistently has a waiting list and is our largest JH club, topping out at 35 members, two assistants and two officers. Known for their unique Juggle Jam group routines, this year's possibilities include Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and a juggling tribute to the Modern Ages (the past decade or three).
