Bump!

Big news regarding Kansas States in this post!

Our format for 1A will be changing this year. Preliminaries will be 60 seconds clicked 80% technical 20% performance. The top 8 (or top 7 + highest placing Kansas Resident) will be seeded into a battle bracket.

The bracket will consist of 3 rounds -
Elite 8 - 60 Seconds
Final Four - 90 Seconds
Championship/Consolation Round - 120 Seconds

In each round the top seed will face the lowest seed, and so on.

We will have three judges assigned to the bracket each responsible for judging two different aspects of the performance:

Chris Neff - Technicality and Cleanliness
Ben Conde - Performance and Stage Presence
Spencer Berry - Originality and Trick Composition

I have chosen our judges due to their strengths and history in the yoyo community. Each judge will be responsible for scoring 1-10, with .5 points factored in. After each performance, judges scores will be tabulated, then a composite score will be revealed allowing the next competitor (higher seed) to see the score that they need to beat.

We will also be having an Open (2A-5A) championship, judge 80/20 with 2 minute freestyles.

Each winner of these divisions will receive a CASH PRIZE as well as a trophy and bragging rights!

Other divisions include:
Fixed Axle
Sport Ladder
Spin Top
Novice Ladder

We are really looking forward to this contest! Please check out all details on location, entry prices, and rules at www.ksstateyoyo.com
