Little kendama open
31. 12. 2008
It wasn't our intention to take this "Malý kendama open" too seriously. We didnt expect many people to come, there was no need to rent a room, where this event would take place, so we managed to make it hastily.
First place, where was a possibility to organise the event, was a passage in higher floor of culture center "flip". But better idea crossed my mind on my way to meeting (Saturday 13.12.2008 in front of "flip"), while looking on skyscraper of Zlin. Why the hell we don't organise it there? And you guess right, we did it!
Only 4 old, well-known faces showed themselves, so everyone expected Dave to win it, bud i definitely had a slight hope, that it could not happen that way. Dave this little hope made a bit larger telling me tale about his morning "hikoki crysis".
The order of competing was given randomly by drawing lots: Luba -> Me -> Max -> Dave. It was obvious, that Luba was only passer-by, going for christmas shops. Max was quite under pressure and spoiled many attempts. I was very surprised and excited, that I did Todai on first attempt, but that wass all. Dave had good luck as usual, and finished his serie with score of 25. So he came first and his prize was brand new red ozora kendama and cold admiration of passers-by.
We will slightly change the rules next time - this point system had several defects, at least won't next time happen a trick to be in list eight times, for sure. Next chance to measure forces will be BKA Official Kendama Championship 2009. :-))) We wish you better opponents for next time, Dave.Tricklist:
