Yeah, I need to come down to another meet, just school has been TOO crazy.

There is a yoyo demoing meet happening tomorrow (Sat 9th) in Cary town.
The meet will be held at the toy store World of Mirth at 3 o’clock

If you are near Richmond, Virginia come on out.

Oh neat! Sorry I missed y’all at WOM, any plans for another meetup anytime soon?

Hey, sad that you couldn’t make it to the last meet up. There will not be an official RVA meet up any time soon this month or next due to the holiday seasons.

Good news is that there is a yoyo club up in northern Va that is host their meet on the 23rd.

are there age divisions for the freestyles? Cause last year there weren’t.

Age divisions will only be for Sports ladder and only if there are enough competitors to merit 2 separate sports ladders. I like to have a separate sports ladder for the younger crowd so they don’t have to compete with the seasoned ladder guys. Freestyles will not have age divisions.

here’s a link to the facebook event page:

Okay that kinda sucks there are no age divisions for the freestyles cause almost everyone enters in the 1a division but it’s going to be a good time cause my mom said I could go. ;D

excited to see you there

I’ll be at the spot spinning mad hop drops and string pops.
Just kidding, I will be there though.

forgot to mention the contest going to be held January 11th

Schedule to take place at the contest.

Players will need to hold on to their finals music until the announcement of the finalists for the 1a Division. We will be using random 1a preliminary music.

i am being tempted to go. Wish there was a younger age range for the sport ladder though . My son just turned 11 and is wary to go up knowing the age range is 17 and under. Or even age ranges for 1A …oh well. We will see.

Come on out. your son has a chance at getting in sports ladder. it only depends on the number of contestants. regardless, come on out for some fun and enjoy the company of others who share your hobby/passion

Thinking about it. Probably an 8 hour drive! lol

Oh gosh! 9:30 for registration? How am I going to get there in time without leaving at 3:00 or something!
