Fabulous article that captures the essence, soul, and sense of this wonderful event!

I had been trying to learn the very basics of club juggling for about a year, on my own, with little success. Then, and I'm not sure how, like a vision, in my FB feed this event appeared. And since it was 7 minutes from home, I said, "Heck Yah!" So, I went for the whole weekend. I was probably the least accomplished juggler in the room (and close to the oldest), but I received so much quality instruction, even from a few jugglers that are truly world class, that my juggling started improving almost immediately. I now have connections to various local juggling groups that I didn't even know existed. I'm coming back next year.

And if you love Cirque du Soleil, be sure to come next year to the Gala to see totally world class performances (I don't have a link for you, but just search for "Game of Throws 2023"). And this year's pricing was only $10/ticket! The best $10 you can spend.

The 7 pm Sat. night show was fantastic! Two hours of talent, balance, and action from top professionals with excellent music and lighting. And tickets were only $10. This is the best entertainment deal in the Bay Area. Looking forward to the next one.
