First Guinness World Record Attempt Scheduled

Guinness_Logo Attempt

The date is set. Next Friday, October 2nd at the Cradlepoint block party in the Basque District here in Boise, I will attempt to set the Guinness World record for “Longest Duration Juggling 3 Objects Blindfolded”. It’s my first world record attempt to promote STEM education.

The current record is 6 minutes 29 seconds .

Guinness’s tag line is “Officially Amazing” so the documentation and evidence is actually just as–if not more–important than actually setting the record. I have several individuals who have generously volunteered to witness and document the event, these include the official witnesses:

Amy Moll – Dean of Engineering at Boise State University

Jay Larsen – President  and Founder at Idaho Technology Council

Blake Youde – Chief Communications and Legislative Affairs Officer at Idaho State Board of Education
