A Terrible Mistake

 Things went a little strange during lock down. I did a single episode of a cooking show. Here it is. 

If anyone wants to see another episode let me know.

New Cirriculum Materials

We have been spending a fair time during the pandemic working on some of the behind the scenes work in the Brigade. This has been a nagging and continual process that never seams to be complete. For some reason we have not had the opportunity to get things together. 

For many things like Magic and Juggling it is simple. You get a good book on the subject and write a curriculum.

There is no good book on basic clowning. So we have written a few lessons and we fill in the blanks every time we teach a class. 

I looks as if we may have a complete curriculum for our basic clowning proficiency. Here is Buddy with the part 1 of the Pickled Herring Proficiancy.

Well I am excited about this. I know no one else is. So for that reason here is a picture of Buddy with it.

Calendar Update, Classes and Paperwork

 Just wanted to check in and state we are starting a new round of basic clowning classes. These are very important to new people to the group. They will be Tuesday at 6:00 PM in the Clown office or online. If you are attending online please let me know so I can send you the materials that go with each class. The more physical classes like locomotion and clown pantomime will be during the Sunday juggling practice at CMU. 

The website calendar has been updated to reflect the new classes and the juggling meetings at Pitt. By the way Pitt, finally, has a juggling club again. The old folks, like myself will remeber fondly going to Pitt and throwing things around at the Cathedral of Learning. Currently these events will be taking place in the Assembly Room at the Pitt Student Union. It is a wee bit more comfortable than the Cathedral.

Also it is the start of a new year. This means paperwork for all the Brigade Members, Yay. So please get your paperwork at what ever meeting you are attending.
