YoYoExpert's People's Choice Awards for 2014!!!


#1

First of all, some of you may know that YoYoSkills.com did a People’s Choice Awards for three years (I believe), then redneckyoyoer3826 kept it alive on these forums. Now that they are both gone for the time being, I will get this going.

These are the categories we will use and my votes: (If you don’t have a vote for the category, put N/A; you can edit as many times as you want)
