The number of people vastly more coordinated than I am seems to have grown exponentially.   :o

Ha! Thanks for posting that, John! It is always fun. Even knowing where Figaro was, it was not easy to see before the close up.
The earliest I see it, barely, is between two legs, more than half into the video.

You can also see Alan playing two diabolos and Brad at this table. I couldn't see Mark but I wouldn't be surprised if he is somewhere.

Wow.....I am so busy watching everything else I keep forgetting that I am looking for Figaro.

Thanks for posting these.  I recognize a few faces from the past.  Fantastic diabolo work!!!

Wow! Thanks John for posting this.
Although Figaro appears quite a few times, it's always pretty far from the camera.
A perfect pastime in these lockdown times!

You can see me a couple of times, but that's even more difficult. At the one minute mark I'm the guy in red in the background with my back to the camera. I'm talking to a brand new ITSA and forum member from Houston, MisterSpinBorg on this forum. But I'm far from Figaro, so no help there  >:D

Ok.  I admit it.  I have looked at this several times and have yet to see Figaro or ta0 or hardly anyone I know.  I did see my old friend Scott Sorenson juggling oodles of rings while bouncing a ball on his head.   Are we allowed any hints?

Look for something blue and round that you sent me that it's not available in south Texas, standing against the wall. Figaro is on the floor, besides it. I counted 5 views, but some quite tiny.
I appear between 0:50 and 1:02, with my back facing the camera and wearing a red T-shirt. I appear a second time, close to Figaro and facing the camera, but too far to recognize.
Behind Scott and to the left you can see the ball juggler from Ohio who went to Miamisburg.
You can see Owen passing clubs, perhaps with Lynn, but the view of the other person is blocked.
 
A general Youtube hint: you can go forward frame by frame by pressing the "." on the keyboard and backward with the ",".

Thanks for the hints but this is tougher than any of the other "where's Figaro" contests.  I did see Rick Robinson, an amazing ball spinner who has retired from performing.  We always call him Piqua Rick because he is from that little Ohio town of Piqua.  I think I see you in your red shirt at a table with your back to the camera from :50 to 1:02.  But I am going to have to work some more to come up with that sneaky Figaro.  He must really be small.  I need to find a bigger screen.  This small phone is not helping me with that video.

What table?  You may need glasses!  :P
Yeah, this is a tough one. Specially for a juggler who will be distracted by the juggling in the foreground. Actually, I didn't find it myself the first time I saw the video and I knew where on the gym it was!  :-[

Thanks for that last hint.  I had given up for a bit and it just did not seem like any fun since no one else was playing the game.  Yes, now that I see the big blue sled I can finally catch a glimpse of Figaro!!!

That seemed like a tougher challenge than I was expecting.
