Marco Palma aka Cuper @ worlds.?.. :-\
« on: July 16, 2011, 02:32:22 PM »

We have reached the original very ambitious INEPTT funding goal, yeah!  8)  As stated on the announcement, most of the money collected on this raffle will go to a second spintop promotion project.  The committee would have liked to have the second project determined before the start of this raffle, but it was not possible. However, there is a real possibility that we will be able to bring a Mexican professional player to worlds this year! 

Marco Palma, a.k.a. "Cuper" will be applying for a US visa next week and we are crossing our fingers.  This would be the first time one of the professional Mexican players comes to Worlds.  Cuper is not only a demonstrator but a designer and manufacturer of tops (Trompos Cuper). If you have not seen it yet, watch this great regeneration ran, almost a tutorial, he did using a Cuper 360 (with my logo on the crown! 8) ) It would be great if he could give a workshop at worlds on some of these tricks.  You can read a good newspaper article about Marco (in Spanish) here.  Cuper is the owner of the amazing trompomóvil!

If the current raffle sells out, as we hope it will, we will have just enough money to sponsor him. So if Alan's top and the rest of the prizes are not incentive enough, here is another great reason to buy a ticket.

I clicked on the links above but it just brought me back to the Homepage.
thought I would share here this remarkable regeneration video from Marco Palma.
When I clicked on 'here' it did direct me to the article.
Wait a minute,... Now I'm clicking on all the links and they're working for me. ???
O K

I probably won't make it to Worlds once again this time around
but it would be great if Cuper could possibly make it to Worlds...

I am sorry you probably won't make it to Orlando, Mark. It would be cool to meet you.

It is a pity Cuper cannot drive his car to Orlando . . .

I figured it out...
With me not being logged in, when I clicked on the links it directed me to homepage.

Jim, here is the thread from when Salvador (re-)posted his tutorial: Arachnids.  The top needs to be spinning slowly.  I need to practice it myself before putting up a tutorial  ::)
