Hey everyone! So today, I woke up and remember that I was supposed to put on a demonstration for a bunch of elderly people at my sister’s work!
So, I didn’t really prepare for it. I got there, the workers set up the chairs around the area that I was about to perform in. I set up my case and got out the yoyos that I was going to use. My sister put on some music, and I started to do my thing! First, I started off with a responsive yoyo. I did basic tricks like trapeze, walk the dog, and rock the baby. There was this one woman that kept cheering (Oh, and I mean really loud) every time I got the yoyo back to my hand. It was really funny!
Secondly, I took out an unresponsive yoyo, I showed them the difference between responsive and unresponsive, which they found to be very interesting! One woman asked why my string wasn’t twisting up, so I showed her about string tension! She found it really amazing, her mind was blown!
Finally, I took out my unresponsive yoyo which had a counterweight attached to it. Their minds were shattered by counterweight, they were really amazing. I’m not even that good at 5a!
After I finished doing my presentation, a lot of the people started asking questions. It was really fun!
The best part is that I didn’t even really plan for it!
