Meetup in GA
« on: January 08, 2019, 02:29:24 PM »

I'm trying to put together a yo-yo meetup in GA, and I'm trying to get people interested in tops as well!

https://forums.yoyoexpert.com/t/get-together-in-ga/295398

Please come if you can.

If you're interested, but don't want to do the poll, just let me know which date(s) work for you.

Thanks!

Thanks!

Wow, they still meet on Tuesday and Thursday nights in Little Five Points. I used to go to those over 20 years ago! I can't now, though; working...

I thought that was always in February for Groundhog Day? Maybe they couldn't get a venue that weekend...

Hmm, I shouldn't do it that weekend for sure.

I should promote meeting there, and try to get my thing going in February.

Rob, I'm going to try to get people to meet at the festival on Sunday the 27th.

I hope some of you can come!

So, I'm planning to go to http://atlantajugglers.org/festivals/upcoming-festival tomorrow.

Yohans sent me some tops. I'm going give them away to any potential new top throwers, I come across!

I do know Owen will be there. He's a top thrower.

Well, the only top thrower and yo-yoer I saw there was Bruce P. I hadn't seen him in years, and it was good to see him again.

I did manage to give away a top, though! Bruce was showing a kid how to throw tops. The kid got the hang of it, and was interested in them, so I gave him one of the Short Circuits. Hopefully we've added one to our ranks!

I'm going to give this a shot again this month.

I've still got some YYF tops to give out, and I'll give away some of these as well!:

https://flic.kr/p/2d8NeSE

I'll be back with the date, but it will be a Sunday. If anyone here is interested, please reply with a preference if you have one. I'd do a poll, but get the feeling I don't really need one: Just say 2/10, 17, and/or 24, and early and/or late afternoon.

I've added the address to the OP.

Thanks!

I'm very sad to have not picked one up when they were at YYE... dammit!

Heh, took me a second to realize you had looked at some of my other pics.

Yeah a guy in Australia made the fixies. They are great, my favorites!

I don't regret getting the micro top, but it is not easy. I feel so good if I manage a boomerang! You have to pull so fast to get it up to your hand, but yet just the right speed, or it goes flying past! It feels amazing spinning in your hand though, nothing like it.

I hesitated a couple of times, and missed out. It was $30 after all... Last time I saw them, I finally pulled the trigger. Maybe they'll make some more.

Ppl meeting you are going to be lucky!!!

Looks like I'll have at least one coming!

So the meetup has been set for Sunday February 10th 1-5pm!

I still have 3- Electrick tops and a Short Circuit that I'm hoping to give to eager hands.

Not you Rob!  :P You already play, and I still covet that double tip Gates I gave you!!!

I'll give you a Legend Wing though.  8)

Let’s do it again!

Sunday March 10 from 2-5. I think three hours is good?

No top throwers last time, so I'm hoping someone will at least let me teach them to throw this time.

Oooh, I just might be able to make it.  I have a huge work deadline on the 12th but I should be done by then.   I'm not sure which end of a yo-yo string to hold but I can throw a top.
