Last year, a few of us entered the official world’s one and only Fixed Axle February video contest. I’m not too humble to admit that I won, but I will happily admit that I was super glad the contest was primarily for “entertainment value” and “showing love for fixed axle” and not a skills contest.
This year, the prizes are bonkers. And my skills aren’t much improved. But I have a few ideas to capitalize on the fact that once again it’s not a skills/tricks based contest. Want some of those prizes pretty bad… not going to list them all, but even when they announced that a Benchmark O was up for grabs, that was enough motivation for me. And they’ve announced other stuff on par (or depending on your preferences, better!) with that. Too good to pass up on!
I guess I’d be better off trying to limit the number of competitors so I can grab that stash… but honestly, the CLYW contest I recently entered showed me how fun it is to have a large number of players on the field… by the end of the CLYW thing, the prizes weren’t the main thing any more. I’d like to see the same thing happen here… get a bunch of my YYE peeps after dem yoyos (and astrojax… and strings…).
Who’s planning on entering? For me it’s a no-brainer.
Rules are here if you want to check’em out: http://yoyoexpert.com/forums/index.php/topic,70750.0.html – take note, skill and being able to nail tricks isn’t what’s going to win those throws. Let’s do this!
