Ten Club Passing (Duos)

records as of 15 May 1995

Viktor Filipovich and Anatoly Myakhostupov
                 performed 10 clubs from about '81 to '92 with Russian
                 circuses.  They stood about 25 feet apart at the finale, going 
                 from separate 5 club patterns directly into passing 10.  Then
                 one would collect all 10, and usually drop so we could see
                 them pass 10 again (many references).  Handmade clubs.
The Afanassievs  troupe from the former Soviet Union performed 10 club passing
                 by two members.  (_Juggler's World_ 38.4, Win. '86-'87, p.9,
                 or _Kaskade_ 28, 12/92, p.13.  They are pictured doing so on
                 a rotating arm in "Juggling: the Art and Its Artists" (p.248).
