# the Passing DataBase

 When doing a "feed", there is somebody (the feeder) who's passing to 2 other jugglers (the feedees), facing them at the same time. F passes to F1 and F2 in a pattern which has to be defined. F1 and F2 only pass to F. F1 and F2 usually juggle the same pattern, but staggered since we assume that F is not going to catch 2 clubs at the same time (this assumption is broken with synchronous patterns).

As a consequence, F passes twice as often as F1 or F2, since they have to throw as many passes as the F1 and F2 together. If F does an n-count, F1 and F2 do a 2n-count (no matter how many clubs there are). We're assuming here that F1 and F2 are doing the same pattern.

### Example:

In the most classical feed, the feeder F is doing a 2-count alternating between the 2 feedess, who do a 4-count. While a pass is made between F and F1, F2 is doing a right hand self.
The causal diagram (for 9 clubs) shows that very well, F being the middle line.

Once the feeder's rhythm is known, it is easy to find what rhythm the feedees are doing (slow-fasts not allowed here).

2-count 4-count
PPS 3-count
