2019 US National YoYo Contest Coverage Thread - Philadelphia, PA

With Nationals starting tomorrow I wanted to start one main thread to keep conversation going about the contest (for those there to connect and for those who want to experience the contest without being there!)

Are you at Nationals?!

  • Yes! :star_struck:

I have decided with Nationals happening this is the perfect time to setup a Discord chat for everyone from our community who wants to keep in touch in Philadelphia to do that!

Feel free to click the link to join and chat live! :blush:

YoYoFactory is live on Instagram. That’s all I’ve found right now, 1A prelims right now.

They just turned it off. Ben went to go find if there is an official stream out.

I’m starting to think that there is not any official stream at all because the official website says the stream is only for competitors.

This is extremely disappointing to say the least.

Yeah that’s a bummer. Maybe they’ll stream the finals tomorrow?

EDIT:

Apparently it wasn’t an oversight, just internet issues

They are having internet problems. They setup and tested yesterday but for some reason something wasn’t working quite right today with the venue. They just changed the settings via the tech people here and they are very hopeful it will work.

They said they will be making the link public. So stay tuned! :slight_smile:
