Did you know.....marble tournament gets national press
« on: March 26, 2013, 02:42:04 PM »

In the USA Today paper there is a little article about the West Virginia Department of Culture and History hosting a marble tournament for children ages 7 to 14 at their Culture Center.  A boy champion and a girl champion will be eligible to compete in the 90th annual National Marble Tournament in Wildwood, N.J. in June.  All skill levels can participate.

Why not spinning tops?

One draw back is that most of us are not between 7 and 14 years old.   :D

really? who? :)

It would be interesting to know the average age of top spinners. I would guess around 40.

It should be easy enough to set up a poll with age brackets to see where our memberships lays. Maybe in another new thread?
