MAR was a rousing success. We were thrilled to have so many people show up and so many awesome performances. Full results are posted at http://mar.yoyocontest.com/results/
I wanna thank Aldersgate United Methodist Church for allowing us to have the contest in their nifty (if toasty) auditorium, allowing us to use their sound system and their duel projection screens. Thanks to our sponsors - YoYoJam, Duncan, YoYoExpert, YoYoFactory, SPYY, Caribou Lodge, and OneDrop. Thanks to the dozens of competitors who traveled from as far away as Massachusetts and West Virginia. Thanks to our judges, who had a long day and a lot of freestyles to view - Tyler Severance, Miguel Correa and Andre Boulay. Thanks also go to Tom Uleau - our MC - who did a terrific job. Finally, special thanks go out to David Yoncha, Tyler Hyde (who arrived just after me at 7:15 am) and especially Thomas - who multitasked by setting up the World Yo-Yo Contest netbook scoring system, judging the ladder AND doing most of the work with the music during a long day. Thomas was 2nd to arrive and last to leave.
