Gira el Trompo - but no spinning trompo in the video!
« on: March 02, 2015, 09:27:21 AM »

There are pictures of tops but I don't see any trompos spinning.  Maybe this should be in the non spin top related section?

I was sure we had talked about this children's museum in Tijuana before, but I could not find any posts so I must be wrong. It could be a great place to have a contest one day. Not to be confused with the Museo el Trompo Mágico in Guadalajara.

Yes, we did talk about it before.  But it still cracks me up that there are so many trompo videos out there without any top spinning.....like this one:

Maybe that's what we need to get more people interested in our sport - dancers!!!  At least at 1:19 we get a good  view of the giant top overlooking the dance floor.
