What’s “Old Sac?”

I already knew that Doc’s gonna be the new organizer. Anyways, Congratulations, Doc. I hope it’ll be the best Cal State this year. :slight_smile:

Edited improper comment. People that run yo-yo contests are volunteers and deserve your respect.

b [/b]How could they do this? What happened to San Fransisco? Im not going. I think the one in Sacramento should be separat, not Cal States. And is Stu even going to be the MC?

Well, it’s complicated. Stu went thru 3 locations that wanted ridiculous amounts of money to hold the contest. He also is running BAC, and was looking to pass off States. Also, there is already a contest in the Bay, so why not spread the love out a bit.
I have not asked Stu to MC, I am not at that stage yet, I am working on other details at the moment

Its sad it wont be at least in the bay area anymore.

I know that many of the San Jose and SF yoyoers might not be able to go.
(I know I probably can’t but I will try :slight_smile: )

But it will be good for the Sacramento and Chico crew.

Good luck Dryoyo with all the organization, I know it isn’t an easy job!


old sac is old Sacramento I think
I went there once and everything was old school
I like the candy shop
I saw a jaw breaker that was the size of a basketball

Yes, Old town Sacramento, in the Park near the water. We will be enjoying the Candy shop across the street and the yummy BBQ smells of Joe’s Crab Shack

I uses to live in sacramento for 1 year
so I hopefully be there
I will probably get some BBQ after the contest

Isn’t Sacramento like, the capital of California (correct if wrong). It seems pretty logic to hold states there. And it seems to me like the Bay Area already got several other competitions.

old sac is near a lake too
or river…

Thanks dacklink!

it is either called old town Sacramento or old Sacramento
I forgot
I think it is called old town sacramento

I believe you are correct, I have been down there a lot in the past couple years and my dad tells me it is.

it is also near a railroad museum.
this contest is one that I will look forward too

The contest is going to be in the park area in front of Joe’s Crab Shack
