    ... but it would be the cheapest any EKO will be for you to get to. Just a thought.
    I'm going

    Jealous! I had so much fun the year I went. EJC is the top juggling festival in the world, so many talented people.

    No way! I live in West Covina too and thought there wasn't a single soul that plays kendama in this city or the cities around it. The closest jams are an hour in either direction (2 hours with LA traffic) at LACMA and in OC. I've only ever seen one other person with a kendama and that was earlier this year when I started playing. I wish West Co had a dama scene.

    What city are you in? The company I work for is based in Eau Claire so if I go up there for work perhaps we can meet up??

    I still have only jammed with real players once.

    Fairmont, WV here! Only people I know of around here are all my friends or people we have introduced to it! Would love a larger scene or Morgantown to pick it up since it’s close by.

    no I'm in sixth grade so college is a far way off, but I'm pretty sure that UT might have players according to the INTERWEBS.

    Sad to hear the numbers gone down..
    Most of the influencers there no longer play, Cereal not having a presence like before..

    I sure as hell will!

    I'm from a small town called Balvi in Latvia. There are only like 8 players. And all of them were brought into kendama by me and my friend, we and one other guy are the only kinda serious dama players, the others just thought its cool and then got bored cause they can't do the basics and because of that can't do anything else.

    Would be nice if the kendama scene here was bigger.

    What part of Nebraska? When I was in high school me and my friends would jam all the time. Now 2 years later they don’t play anymore and I’m stuck jamming by myself. If you live close we can meet up

    I live in South Carolina. I know there is a scene near me, but I don’t know anyone who jams. I got my friend to buy a dama but he’s just not as into as me, plus he now lives 3 hours away, so I just jam by myself.
