It's for kids 11-17

I've been with them since the beginning, 14 years now, I believe.

They lost their home, and that was a big part of me opening my business. They bounced around in churches for two years, before I was finally able to pull it off.

So we are on for 2-5pm on 07/21!

I hope some top throwers can come.

We have to go upstairs to a smaller space, but I think it's workable. Also, if the weather is OK, we can throw outside on the grass.

We will try to make it.  We're not sure if we can get there in time.

Thanks for coming.

You are a fantastic teacher!

Hopefully we can grow our ranks.

Next time I see you, I'll have Cable Car that you showed me. You work on Bermuda Triangle.  ;)

Well this is a pickle.
I need to practice before the nationals. (go to meetup)
I need to prepare to travel before the nationals (clean car, work, pack, etc.)
I doubt I can make it this month. :(
But I did finally learn barrel rolls.  I'm pretty choppy and they don't regen to well yet.  Perhaps I can learn spiders now.

Spiders are painful... I never got good at it. I used to be able to regen on a OWB top with it but that doesn't say much!!!

All hail the mighty QSH

It was just me and one yoyo player this week.

I did show a couple of top tricks to one of the guys renting in my building, who came in to chat.

Also, I recorded a trick! Hopefully it's not total sacrilege to post a yoyo trick here?  :P

Is that called a Return Top?
Let's hope so or it's going to the NSTR . . .   ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

The yoyo return top video is pretty wonderful. I find when I watch these tricks I have no idea what is going on. It's fast. It's confusing. And unless I'm really close to it I can't figure out what's happening. Even then it's very mysterious. On another thread folks are discussing judging. It seems to me that anyone judging this stuff would need instant replay or slow motion video to get it right.
