We're all missing you so much Ta0!
That would be a great add to the 10th edition of Marines and 3rd of Loon-plage (that you have to enjoy too this time, we still look for a serious judge for the first official spintop French championship?)

Great fun here in snowy Marines! Jim and Ludo and his wife and daughter are wonderful hosts, and everyone involved feels like an old friend, even though we've known each other only online in my case.

Today, got some very helpful throwing lessons from the maestro, Jose. He makes it all look so easy!

Ludo came up with the perfect dark "theater" for my blacklight tops. Tomorrow will try to find a variable-speed strobe for the tops I make specifically for strobe effects.These and the blacklight tops are generally my biggest crowd-pleasers.

Thanks for the live report! I know how difficult is to take time to make post on the phone when there is so much fun around.

The venue and content are great. Lots to see and do for the festival. Ludo has done a great job with this event.
So far I have helped fold large 3 piece oragami tops, help bring materials into the venue and set up 3d printers with Mermouy . We have been making so calibration pieces as well as a few little tops. Mermouy even printed Jeremy a lego tip which was quickly turned into a top. I also threw top with Ludos daughter Sham which was fun.
A few players arrived late last night so I imagine there will be some tops thrown today.

I can imagine Attila, Wilson and Ludo arriving exhausted but happy.

If you add France to the list (but count California and Colorado as the same country), I think that's more than in Shanghai, Iceland, Cleveland or Tokyo, but less than Prague.
