Recent yo-yo design innovation has turned the "Number One Toy of the 20th Century" (named by A&E network) into a sophisticated piece of sports equipment. The current ball-bearing performance quality yo-yos have increased the caliber of tricks performed by all players. The ease of using a ball-bearing yo-yo encourages new players to learn advanced skills faster than before. There are more players competing in contests and enjoying the sport than in any time in history. Yo-yoing has become a fresh entertaining activity for a whole new generation.
National Yo-Yo Master and head judge Dazzling Dave Schulte is the organizer of the event. For interviews or details about the event, contact him using the information below.
