As the title says, is anyone going? The contest is being held on the Redondo beach pear.

More info here:http://www.pierkites.com/Fest-Flyer/back.html

This will be held this weekend on 8th of march, this Sunday. I will be there, and this will be my first yoyo contest that I will compete in ;D :wink: Also don’t mind the date, it is an old flier :slight_smile:

Also, Yoshi Mikamoto will be there too :slight_smile:

Yeah! I've been to the place just this past weekend. They hold a yoyo club every Saturday there, with Yoshi Mikamoto. He told me about it, and they hold this on the first Sunday of March; every year. The time of the event will be around 11am,so you should get there early, because the parking can be tedious ;) The format is a little different from other contests, but the judging will be the same. It is categorized in beginner, intermediate, and advanced. I will be competing in the advanced division. 

Any style, age and gender are permitted. The contest is free to get into, but be sure to have a song for your freestyle ready. The prizes are subjective to the event. Try not to take my word for it, I got all of this info from Yoshi himself; call them if you may. I also heard from Yoshi that even pros like Grant Johnson, Anthony Rojas, Tessa Picillo, and Paolo Bueno; have all competed at this event before. As a result I hope that you can make it, and have fun while being there. ;D 8)

I’m going, but I’m not so sure when you need to get there to compete.

I competed last year; can’t make it this year. ):

Just bring an iPod with your freestyle song and you can sign up there.

At least that’s how it was last year; very simple.
