How's the yo-yo scene in Memphis TN?


Hello everyone, My name is Brett and I’m about to move to Memphis and was wondering how the yo-yoing scene is there.

I lived in St. Louis for my whole life (Which had a pretty solid group), then I moved to Owensboro KY about 5 months ago (That I introduced yoyoing to… And don’t worry, nobody ells knows where it is either) And now I’m moving to Memphis (Where I don’t know anybody) So I figured I’d check out how the local yo-yo scene is.

i.e. if there are any tournaments and shops and other stuff like that. so if you have any info please respond…
Thanks and if you’re in the Memphis area I’m sure I’ll see you around.
