It sounds like a great visit. I never saw that top with an antique wet battery (Leyden jar?) working.
I can corroborate that Cyril's wife cooks delicious Corsican and French meals.
I never posted the videos and photos from my last visit (life got in the way). I might just add to the ones Jose and Jeremy post.
I feel sorry for Wilson missing the visit. It's a very unique collection.

Thanks for all the posts and videos and comments and thanks and more!  It sounds like everything went very well (as always).  My wife is not going with me to Cleveland but she keeps bugging me about where worlds will be in 2020!!!

Nope it's Damien!
Unini can be seen on the first video (n°9) snapstarting in his hand before rollercoaster  :o at 0:20 on the right chatting with Pepe...

No need for photo tags on this forum...  >:D

By the way I made a playlist with the videos from "Jea-Luc Fin" who must be a visitor (I don't know him, just found these after Ta0's post):

And will compil all videos by us/friends/spinners on that one (feel free to give me your links):

Oops! Sorry unini and Damien! I haven't met either of you in person yet.

I was really impressed by the simultaneous throw to the tall platform:  :o

Thank you for sharing the video!

Did I see 'Jim in Paris' with a diabolo? You are smooth like butter, sir!

...and is that a unicycle frame being used to support the target / sharpshooter platform for the tops? Genius!

Yes, an excellent video!  8) Thanks for taking the time to do make it and share it with those of us who wished we had gone.

Quentin always trying new things (and stealing the show with his world class 4A routines).
Attila also loves to experiment but the target support he performed on a previous video was somewhat suicidal.  :D
The Colombian tops, at least in Wilson's hands, seemed to work very well for the Taiwanese platforms.
I noticed that Mermouy has a very high arch on his platform throws and it seems to work well.

Correct! It was an old one I kept "in case of" this model was a "two sizes giraf unicycle" it came with a configurable mounting system and 2x2 different size chains of course..

I noticed that Mermouy has a very high arch on his platform throws and it seems to work well.
Ooops, videos don't lies right? I need to practice this more...
