Where's everyone from?


#1
Hi, I know this kind of topic has been posted before, but this is a little different. This thread is to help bring some of us spinners together to progress the sport. Take for instance...I'm from St Louis, MO. Around my area I don't know any yo-yo'ers with a high skill level, so the only thing I get to do is learn from video's. Video's are great but have limitations. I would much rather meet with a group of people to share tricks, and transitions and stuff. 

So if you would like, please post where you are from, and if you see  people from your area, you'll be able to PM them and see if they'd be interested in meeting periodically to share some knowledge. I hope this thread has the effect I am looking for. I am wanting to bring us [b]Uniquely Talented[/b] individuals together with like friends to create a tighter community, and a broader knowledge base.

Obviously you can post however you like, but to make it easy I figured you can make sure you list at least a few things about yourself.
  1. Where you are from.
  2. What your favorite style of play is.
  3. Your skill level (Like maybe how far on Andre’s tut’s you can go for reference.)
  4. What you would like to learn from others.
  5. Favorite Yo-Yo, or Yo-Yo’s if you can’t pick.
  6. Any little random fact about yourself you think if fun.

So, I’ll start:

  1. I am from St Louis, MO.
  2. My preferred style is 1a, and a little 5a.
  3. My skill level is about the expert and some master level tricks from Andre’s tuts.
  4. I would like to learn some transistions from trick to trick, cause everyone know’s a trick is a trick, it’s how you get into, and out of it that makes a performance.
  5. My favorite yoyo is currently my DM, just because they make learning trick easy. But love the M1, and I think I’ll love my new DNA 888 when I get it.
  6. Interesting fact. I used to make a living touring and doing yoyo show’s with the likes of Dennis McBride, Rick Wyatt, and some of the members of Team THP from Hawaii. That was back when Yomega ruled all. <-----hence OldSchool. My favorite yoyo back then was the Saber Raider, it dominated. ??? :stuck_out_tongue:
