CircuSoc Newsletters 1998


Relevant News:
Welcome to another great year of fun juggling with the greatest society named Circusoc in Bristol University. So far, and somewhat unsurprisingly, we haven't done much atall. 50 people signed up at Fresh, and if you want to know who your fellow jugglers in-hall are, Mandy can give you the details.

Irrelevant News:
Nick went to Switzerland this summer and met loads of foreigners. Tim got an inflatable chair and a new giraffe specially imported from Africa. Ross cooked my dinner this evening and it was really nice. James wants to be Frank, and plans to evade council tax by pretending to be a dog.

Vol 2. Circusoc Times

Relevant News: er.... I'm not sure whether there is any.

Irrelevant News:
James had his yearly bath yesterday. In some countries, people of opposite sexes are allowed to get married. The average person in Britain can juggle 5.82 balls, blindfold.

Relevant News:
Well this is the last term of this year, and as you all know its chock full of hideous exams, and we all know the best thing to relieve your pre, post (and maybe during) exam stress is to have a good juggling session. This being summer, all our Wednesday Workshop activities take place in the great outdoors, just round the side of the physbar [see map], except maybe in the highly unlikely event of unpleasant weather, in which case we shall of course immediately retreat back indoors. There are a few Sunday Sessions organised, which we thoroughly recommend as they are all held in the mighty Anson rooms, where there's enough room to juggle 8 clubs (should you feel the need). Finally, just before Easter we had our AGM (Anti-Gravity Medicine), and we also elected a new committee:

The New Committee:
J PRESIDENT: Mandy Dorn e-mail: ad5672 tel: 9039412
J SECRETARY: Tim Mannveille e-mail: tm7963 tel: 946 628 1
J TREASURER: Ross Remnant e-mail: rr7299 tel: 94 66 281
NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS YET: "Juggler x" email: xx007 tel: 926 626 6

Irrelevant News: That was the longest Relevant News section we have ever had in the history of Circusoc ever before or since, past, present or future. James has confounded his critics by finding both sets of his keys, the first of which was originally reported missing in October. But by Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, this has been tragically counterbalanced by the sudden loss of both of his hats. Comic recommendations this term are: Danger Girl, Preacher and Ranma ½ from Nick, James and Tim respectively.

Dates for your Diary:
In the Union: 25th April 4-7 in the fantastic Anson Rooms
9th May 4-7 in the amazing Anson Rooms
13th June 4-7 in the hygrophanous Anson Rooms

Fire Juggling:
It's happened before, it'll happen again, but nobody knows why. Turn up on Wednesdays for rumours, myths and hearsay regarding its whereabouts, whenabouts and howabouts.

1) Crack this code and demonstrate the juggling pattern to us, and you could win a highly sought-after Double lolly:
yjtrr gpit yep
2) If you have two fuses of uneven thickness (i.e. random burning rates), each of which will burn for exactly one hour, how can you use them to time 45 minutes?
3) And finally, a proper juggling pattern: try to work out how to do 4 4 1. . . with chops!

This is not the end, this is merely the beginning of the bit before the end.
