Toast Aidan Burns' Scrambled V Variation (sB iC cC)

Scarmblaed v variations:
Be sure to read the basic information first!

Turntables:
This is important to learn the patterns fast and to understand the underlying system (read more).

The pattern-table:

   1 2 3 1'
A p s p s p s -> B
B p s s s p s ->M
C s s p s s s -> A
M s B i C c C -> C

This table tells you what the jugglers do on every beat in one step. At the end of the table you see which role you a juggler has in the beginning of the next step.

The turntable:

A M B C
B C A M
C A M B
M B C A

In this table you can see which role you have at a given step. Write the names of you and your partners in the first column and read which role you take at the next, the previous or every other step.

In words:

  1. "s B": The manipulator substitutes a pass from A to B.
  2. "i C": The manipulator intercepts a pass from A to C, and becomes C by this. Former C is the new manipulator.
  3. "c C": The manipulator carries a club to C.
        

Tips: 

  1. Pass 1 and pass 2 goes to the same juggler, as M substitutes the first pass and intercept the second. 
  2. We do pass 2 high and short, to make it easier for M to move to the front of C and catch the pass.
  3. M has to wait for the pass from C to A on beat 2, then jump in front of C to catch the incoming pass from A (aka "toast") and everything is fine. Just DON'T hurry on beat 2. 

 

History:

I still remember when Aidan came up with this pattern on a Dutch juggling convention many years ago and said that he has some variations on the scrambled v. He was not sure if they will be doable at all. I had the strong feeling that it should be possible, ans finally we made it. The clue was that you have to trust on the pattern and M has to wait until C`s pass is gone before M moves. Take your time, throw floaty passes.
The next time I met Aidan he said that he was developing a system with all possible patterns (this collection).
