2013 Kansas States 5/4!
« on: April 22, 2013, 09:26:51 AM »

Hi all!

Just wanted to let everyone know that this year we will be running a Spin Top Ladder in coordination with the Kansas State YoYo Contest! Chris Neff (maybe you've heard of him...) will be running the Spin Top ladder. He has also volunteered to provide some of his awesome spin top mods as prizes!

The contest is May 4th starting at 10am, at the Kansas Children's Discovery Center in Topeka, KS. All info can be found at http://www.ksstateyoyo.com I hope to see lots of awesome top spinners there!

Thanks guys. I have a good spintop coming in the mail shortly as well. I'm pretty excited after seeing the contest at MOYO.

If I can get some work in between now and Kansas States I might actually compete. Just gotta beat Joel and I'll consider it a success!

Joel is the 2013 Kansas Spin Top Champion!!!

This was a surprise win because both Nick and Scott have more experience, but each missed some tricks they would probably rather not talk about  ;D
Joel has come leaps and bounds in just two months and we are all very proud of him!  Bryce did 600% better than he did at MOYO, and Adam Brewster made his debut on the spin top stage - he is an incredibly inventive and talented yo-yo player and having him on the spin top scene is rather exciting  ;D 

Dangit!  I just remembered that I forgot to get one of Adam's spin top tricks on video - something I have not seen before!  I'll work on recreating the scene or requesting footage from the man himself.

I'm sure some would rather I not post this  >:D but I think it will motivate them to improve and those who think they can do better than these guys might join the fray...





I forgot to bring a Frisbee so we just skipped Target.  The contest stopped after the second round where nobody was able to complete the trick.  So they all missed around the world and two rounds later they all missed hop the fence.  I wish I kept the score sheet from MOYO because I can't remember which tricks were missed there.

The award ceremony  :D
