top spinning workshop advice please
« on: August 04, 2014, 10:59:06 AM »

Do please tell more about a top spinning workshop. 
How is it run?
Do you have video?
Is it kid friendly?
Please give any advice on how to run one (and on how to get kids to remember to bring their tops from home)
We had so many parents and kids spinning tops after church yesterday that I did not have enough strings!  It seems like it is about time for a community "Dia de los Trompos" in Smyrna GA

PS I got my 16 trick video recorded last night!

Yippee!!!  Glad to hear of your progress and the interest at your church.

The workshop at the recent IJA fest started from the very very beginning and worked up to more and more and eventually ended with more advanced tricks while others were working on their throw to the ground.  In the early part of the workshop the better throwers stayed busy by helping the beginners.

Keith Nelson also started the workshop off by asking the group about their abilities and who had thrown before etc.

It's not much. Just me dropping tops and winding and getting just enough tricks for my 16 patch (assuming Dale & Val agree)
