My son has been yoyoing for about almost 2 months now. So this past sunday i took my son for a drive up to the National Yo-Yo Museum in Chico, California at the Bird in Hand shop, we had a GREAT time the guys there were great!! they helped my son out with some tricks and he almost completed the Level One trick card for a free T-Shirt!! he completed Sleeper, Side Throw Sleeper, Rock the Baby, Tower, Elevator, Brain Twister, Trapeze, Split the Atom and Double or Nothing… and the one that stopped him from getting the free T-shirt was Zipper!!! we just ran out of time for the day but he now pretty much has it down. so next time we go back he will get his free T-Shirt! w000t!

He wants to go back soon but its a 2hr drive for us but its well worth the drive we had a blast!

Thanks Richey and Tim you guys were great!

Hey yoyochucker,
where do you live? I use to live in Yuba City and my Grandparents still live there.
My Grandpa got me started yoyoing. He was a Duncan champion when he was in
high school.

keep spinning

I live in Lincoln, inbetween Sacramento and Yuba, about 1hour and 30 from Bird in Hand.
I have probably seen you guys there, I help teach about once a month.
