Once again, the island up north known for ice and snow is in the news.  Today the paper has an article about recent disasters in that area that are being blamed on natural events or.......elves!!!  "Icelandic elves, also called hidden people or alfar, are not tiny, pointy eared creatures.  They are thought to be regal and humanlike, and a good way to think of them is as the Icelanders version of karma."

Elves have been blamed for wreaking havoc on construction projects across Iceland for decades.  I may have to do some more investigation about this so I can get the elves on my side when I do my freestyle.

Hi!
I'm new here and I know very little about this whole contest, I would really love to try my best at such an event.
How much would it cost to go there and is there any chance to get there from Hungary even if I'm not really wealthy? Are there sponsors who would support me or anyone who is new to this world?

Welcome to the forum!

We commented about your spintop video here: skilled cookie alert @@

You have lots of skill and it is great to have a player from Hungary in the forum.
A couple of years ago the European spintop contest was in Budapest, Hungary (part of the European yo-yo contest). It is a pity that you missed it. I told Gustavo to tell his Hungarian players but he said they were not interested. The videos are here: EYYC 2014 videos.

ITSA will be providing some help to players to attend worlds next year. We may be able to help you with lodging but probably not with the transportation. But, if there is an European spintop contest and you manage to win, then we can talk about more help  ;D But an European spintop contest in 2017 has not been confirmed yet.

I will try my best but I see very little chance to be there. I have some time until then so who knows I hope to be there and I will keep practicing until then.

So, as I read this thread, there will be a spintop division at WYYC 2017. I'm glad about it, I think that it's not the right time to divide yoyos and tops. I would love to come there and compete, it will be quite an expensive trip, but I think it's possible.

And about EYYC 2017, it will be held in Bratislava, Slovakia. Me and Jakub are in good contact with guys there and I hope there will be enough players for spintop division to be opened. We are probably going to take care of rules.

Actually I'm in contact with Mouy, they will come in their van to Prague to Czech Nationals (22nd October). They plan to do some sightseeing and so, they will be here for over a week I guess. Mouy said they'll bring some special tops for a little exhibiton for Czech people to see the tradition of tops around the world. We will hold there two small contests for beginner players: Target - 3 tries to hit a target and it gets smaller and smaller; and Long Spinner. Unfortunately no Spintop division due to small amount of participants but hopefully we will raise a new generation of spintop players!

And if they plan to come to Bratislava too, they'll need to compete for sure! It would be great if they could make it there too.
