Mid Alantic Regional Yo-Yo Contest
« on: May 07, 2016, 11:22:27 PM »

I spent today in King of Prussia PA at MAR yo-yo contest. Only a 3 hour drive each way. This is the contest I started about 18 or 19 years ago when Joe Mitchell called me and said I have a toy store and want to run a yo-yo contest, what do I do? I said hire me! He did and I did and boy was it fun. It is now a regional contest that seeds players to the US National contest. There was no Spin Top division but Eric Kowolski(sp) was there manning the Yo-Yo Expert table and was selling yoyofactory short circuit's and elec-trick's led. I got one each, very nice. But the highlite was the 3 kids who also bought tops and noticing the patch on my shirt ask if I could help them? Well long story short, by end of the day one was doing sky rocket to hand some of the time with a great big smile on his face. And the other two were saying that they were going to get their yo-yo club to all play with tops. We should expect some new players here because I told anyone I could about this site. Terrific DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. Jack, Eric had been on a trip with Ann Connolly. I told him the next time he sees her tell her she owes me a card. (for you)

Glad to hear you had a great day.  I did not know you started MAR.  Very nice.

Also happy to hear about your work with the upcoming top spinners.

Terrific day, indeed!
Seeing something that you started going strong after many years must be very rewarding. Hopefully, the same will happen with the new spintop players.
