Pre-Registration for the World Yo-Yo Contest
Please read carefully. If you want to compete you must pre-register. There will be no exceptions. If you show up to worlds, you will still be able to attend the event, but you will not be able to enter any of the world divisions. You do not have to pre-pay to pre-register, but if you choose not to pay now, the price you will be charged at the door will be higher than the on-line price.
What do I get with my Event Pass?
When you pre-register for an event pass you will get admission to the main hall, admission to watch all contests, access to all workshops and the ability to enter the mod contest and the the diabolo ladder. You will also get an event T-shirt and the ability to buy for an extra fee special edition event yo-yos, Tickets to Luckys BBQ, and extra event T-shirts. You can also select to enter any of the divisions of the World Yo-Yo Contest. There is a fee for each division entered.
What happens if I don't pre-register?
You can register at the door. The fee will be higher. You will not get an event T-shirt with your admission (if there are any left you can buy one at the event), you will not be able to buy the special edition yo-yo that is only available to people who pre-register, and you will not be able to enter any of the world yo-yo contest contests. You will have admission to watch all workshops and contests.
Why have prices gone up for freestyle divisions?
We plan to have Cash Prizes this year for 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A and 5A. We will be announcing more details on this as the event gets closer. These additional funds will help provide for prizes.
Can I pre-register now and pay at the door?
Yes. If you pre-register now you will get the event t-shirt when you pay at the door. You will not get any early registration discounts, and you can't get an event yo-yo or a ticket to Lucky's BBQ unless you pre-pay. (sorry about that). You will be able to compete in any divisions as long as you pre-register, even if you pay at the door.
Can I just get in to see the finals of the contest on Friday and Saturday night?
Yes - Tickets are available for $5.00 per night or $9.00 for both Friday and Saturday night together. Admission with night tickets begins at 6:30 pm.
They are not good for access during the event during the day. They are not available for Thursday or for admission to see the preliminary rounds. These tickets are not available on-line, they will be sold at the event site. Remember you don't need one of these if you have an event pass.
I'm not going to be there for the whole event, can I just get a pass for the days I am there?
Yes, you can get day passes when you pre-register. Like all the prices, the earlier you buy them, the less they cost.
