* It's time!

Hello juggler - if you have not already done so, it is now time to
mark 25 to 28 of May in your calendar.  Because this is when the 22:th
Nordic Juggling Convention will be held in the fair city of Jönköping,

It will be four days of intense juggling, amazing workshops, public
shows, new friends, old friends and perhaps even some sleep.  Whatever
your juggling-style - balls, clubs, torches, staff, diabolo, unicycle,
small children, rubber chickens or poi, etc - you'll find new
inspiration and tricks att NJC2006

We're just in the process of putting together the schedule for the
convention. In this letter you'll find some of the hard facts - more
will follow in other letters.  We're looking forward to meeting you in
person, in Jönköping, in May 25-28:th!

*  The place  

Jönköping lies in southern Sweden, by the great lake Vättern - the
second largest lake in Sweden. We've booked a large sports-gymnasium
for the event: We'll have at least two separate halls for juggling.
Sleeping-halls will be in a school, close to the gymnasium. We'll be
within walking distance from the city center with shops, restaurants

It's quite easy to get to Jönköping. There's a train-station, airport,
and a large motorway through the city. More travelinfo at our site:

*  Pre-registration

Yes, pre-registration is open! Our first period of the lowest
available early-bird special price ends next week! Then the prices
will go up as of March 1. Gee, we are just like Hästens! For details
about prereg - check our website!

*  The schedule - so far......

Okey, right now the schedule is a little blank - but that will change.
Some of the things that are booked are.

     * Public show in a 100-year-old Theater in the city center.

     * An outdoor show with live band music (The royal swedish army's
       music band) where we're invited to do live juggling to music!
       It's a part of a greater arrangement called Windmusic Festival
       with participants from all over the world.

     * A lot of workshops - see below.

*  Call for workshops

Would you like to lead a workshop? -  Mail us!
Any special workshop you'd like to attend? - Mail us!

Let us know what you want, and we'll try to tailormake this convention
to suit you!

*  Call for acts for the public shows

Do you have an extraordinary trick? Perhaps even a couple of tricks?
Then you probably want to be in our public show for a live audience,
in a 100-year old theatre. It will be magnificient - more details in a
later letter.

*  Call for volonteers

Yes, we need help to keep this convention working during the four
days. If you want to give some of your time to check people in at the
door, empty wastebaskets etc - then we'll revard you fittingly. No, we
can't say more - but it will be tokens of our thanks handed out.
