Bay Area Yoyo Classic
« on: May 22, 2013, 06:23:15 PM »

BAC is Saturday the 25th in Goldengate Park in San Francisco.

Here is the link for more info http://bayareaclassic.com/

I am the sound guy running the 1A prelims stage if anyone wants to throw/spin with me.

I have never been to BAC, but in the old times it had one of the prime spintop contests. Felix Avellana, Steve Brown, John Hornbeck, Miguel Correa, etc. competed there. I believe Hornbeck did the first upside-down trick on stage at BAC.

Are they going to have anything for top spinners on stage?

Queenie and I met up there the last year they had tops on stage. 
I threw with a bunch of folks during the day and had a blast!
I also competed for the first time that year, but stank it up to high heaven (or at least the low fog cover  ;D  It was San Francisco cold that day!)   
Tops seemed like kind of an afterthought, but at least it was on the ticket.
I met a lot of cool folks that day--that was really good.

Some day I will make it out to BAC. My friend Eric is flying in from Chicago. It looks like both CLYW and One Drop will be showing off their plastic yoyo prototypes.
