I’m in El Paso, not that it’s super close, but there’s only one other guy around here, and he’s 15 or 16, and rarely posts anything
Hey, nice that you posted. And yeah, we’re about 3.5hrs away from each other. I do head down there like once a year though…
I was yo-yoing up in Albuquerque and Santa Fe a few weeks ago.
There is a NM group that found me on Facebook last week. They are in Sandia Park which may be closer to your location. Here is the link to the 5Yo5 Yo-Yo Club https://www.facebook.com/pages/5yo5-YOYOclub/1475080886092047 . I’m out on the border of NM, CO, UT and AZ in the four corners.
The Yo Down Show Down is coming up on July 3rd (also open to out of state players - no passport required). If you are interested in some of the past winners… check the posts for GoCrazyForYoyo, maker of Amplified Return Tops who won the contest twice. Shannon Jackson is another two time winner and has come back to help judge the contest.
Cool! Thanks for replying Luke! Yeah, I’ve been wanting to go check out the event on July 4th up there. Are you in Farmington? Oh, and thanks for that link for that yoyo group. I wish I would see more people here where I’m Am yoyoing… Thanks for the help though. I appreciate it.
Yes, I’m still in Farmington… Working on new yo-yo videos… Here is a still frame from one still production. Good luck with finding other New Mexico Throwers!
