Here's a bit more info on what you can expect from Chocfest this year:
* Chocolate (would you expect anything less?) *
Our team have been incredibly creative and have made what all you chocolate
lovers have dreamed about since the chocolate club first made its appearance
at CF3. However, this one is solid.
Not only have the team made a solid chocolate club, they've made a solid
chocolate diabolo. (The prototype was delicious.)
Not only have they made a solid chocolate club and a solid chocolate
diabolo, but they've made a set of solid chocolate juggling balls too.

Ever wanted to have a go at speed stacking? Ms. Reese will be providing the
equipment and expertise to let you have a go.
* Pole Exercise Workshops, courtesy of YUPE *
This is probably the closest thing to an aerial/acro workshop Chocfest has
ever been able to offer. It's hard work but a lot of fun. Shorts are a
must. www.yupe.co.uk gives you some more details about the format of the
workshops. If you are interested in attending, please could you let me know
off-list? (This is so we can organise how many poles we need and number of
workshops we might need to run - thanks.)
* Other Workshops *
Alan Blim, from the Katakombs in Berlin, will be running a workshop on
juggling and rhythm.
PhysioMonkey will be running a workshop on shoulders. Places will be
limited for this workshop. There'll be a sign-up sheet for it and Alan
says: "you'll need to be happy without t-shirt (for the men) or with a
sports or strappy top that allows the upper back and most of the shoulders
to be seen (for the ladies)."
* Catering *
Lovely school dinners will be available over lunch time and sarnies will be
made to order. There will be more food suitable for vegetarians available
this year. All at reasonable prices.
Please remember that the majority of the convention will be taking place in
the School Sports Hall and therefore suitable footwear needs to be worn.
High heels or muddy shoes (and muddy unicycles!) will need to be left by the
See you at Joseph Rowntree School on the 11th.
