Mark Hayward will be in Miamisburg in just a few minutes
« on: February 18, 2012, 07:24:49 PM »

He called to say he is getting close.  We have picked up the house.  There are a bunch of my youngest son Joe's tops and yo-yos in his room.  All the toilets are flushed (I think).  We might just be set.......wait, I hear someone outside!

He is here!!!

Ta0, soon you will be able to hear some of Mark's new adventures with his off-Broadway show in New York City.  They want to try setting world records every week.  I forget how long the show is supposed to run (6 or 8 or 10 weeks) but they are checking into all kinds of possibilities.

Mark has a new Guinness Book of World Records on order and he picked up an article from me about Ashrita Furman.  He has the world record for the most world records!  There is a great write-up about him in the New Yorker magazine and Mark will be absorbing it in the coming days. 

Tomorrow Mark will help out with the children's sermon and then our yo-yo day activities from 2-4.  He has several plans in place for some potential record attempts!

Any run in New York for 6 or more weeks is a long run!  With a record every week they should be noticed by some of the big media   8) We'll try to give him some ideas next week  >:D

The day was mostly for yo-yos but we did sneak in a few top related things.  Mark showed off Chubby to a few folks, who seemed duly impressed.  We made an official announcement that Miamisburg is going after the Guinness record for the most tops spun at the same time (192) and we want all of these people to be there.  We also talked about his record attempting off-broadway show called "Stunt Lab".  He even gave a few good runs at the world's longest walk the dog with a yo-yo.  We talked about a few more records that he might be able to go after with top spinning.  Mark also showed me the spin top section of his new video about throwing tops like a champion.  It looks great!

Here is the info. from the theater about Stunt Lab:

I gave you three or four minutes.  What more do you want?  Your batmobile would have made it up here with time to spare!!!

Mark's occasional partner has hit it big.  A large picture of him is on the front page of the life section in the USA Today newspaper!!!  It is in connection with an article about America's Got Talent.  They have a lot of nice things to say about Jonathan.  They really love his entrance where he is brought on stage in a carry on suitcase.
