The contest will be held at Vaudeville Mews in Downtown Des Moines on October 19, 2013. The contest will follow a schedule similar to the one below:
11:01am - 12:00pm Registration & music CD turn-in.
12:01pm - 1:00pm Sport Ladder and Junior 1A
1:01pm - 2:00pm Open Championship Division
2:01pm - 3:00pm Fixed Axle Division
3:01pm - 4:30pm 1A Championship Division
4:31pm - 5:00pm Professional Demonstrations and Awards
The schedule may change before the contest and slight modifications will be made the day of if needed, so please keep an eye out. Short breaks in between divisions will also probably happen to allow the judges to eat, get up, and move around.
The rules will follow those of the National YoYo Contest and World YoYo Contest, however, may be adjusted to accommodate a smaller state yoyo contest.

This year, like last year, we will announce the contest on as many yoyo sites as we can. Please keep an eye out on YoYoExpert, YoYoNews, Ducan’s Site, and Facebook. If you have a site you’d like us to put a listing on leave a comment to this post.
We already have some committed sponsors and more will will soon be added. There will be an announcement in the following weeks, as to which are connected with the contest.
We will be also working with a local LAN Party site to setup a better website to allow for registration and music uploads. Please keep an eye out for that soon. For any additional questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
