Make Plans Now To Attend First Soviet Juggling Festival
The minister of culture invites jugglers to Tbilisi, the capital of the
Soviet Republic of Georgia, for the first Soviet juggling festival during
the first week of September, 1991.
The Tbilisi festival will be held immediately following the 14th European
Juggling Convention in Verona, Italy, and the European Jugglers Assoc.
is trying to help interested parties attend both events.
To simplify travel and visa problems, the EJA is organizing a charter
round-trip airplane flight from central Europe to Tbilisi. To get a visa
for the convention, jugglers need a personal "invitation" from the Soviet
government. The EJA is working with the Soviets to compile a list of
people who want to receive these invitations. Names will be passed along
to all Soviet embassies, where jugglers can then get a visa for the trip.
The cost for the flight is estimated at $500, and accommodation, food and
registration in Tbilisi will be provided free of charge.
If you are interested in attending, you must send: 1) Your name exactly as
it appears on your passport and 2) Your birthdate by January 15 to
trip organizer: Haggis McLeod; 2 St. Edmonds Cottage; Glastonbury,
Somerset; ENGLAND. Call him at (44)-458-34484.
