The latest updates. 1. Registration goes up on the 30th. Save money register now at http://www.WorldYoYoContest.com 2. We have confirmed bus transport for Lucky's BBQ. So this year not only is the food free (while it lasts) thanks to Yomega, but the transport is free too. We will have a 50 seat bus running about every 15 minutes. One last detail to confirm and it is all set up. It will run from 4:30 to 10:30, so do make sure you get back early enough to fit on the busses. You will want to because as soon as you get back Mark Hayward will be hosting the wheel of penalty. 3. To clarify, we will have a seed rules in effect, a better version will be posted soon but it boils down to this.
4. Flags: We are running out of wall space for all the flags, so we thought we'd making hanging the flags a reward for the country. It has been proposed that the flags that are hung, are the flags of countries that have had a contestant achieve the final top 3 in any division of the modern World Yo-Yo Contest. By winning for your country you also win the country's flag to be represented at future WYYC's. I'm going from memory here, but I think this means that we will have flags of Brazil, Japan, Germany, USA, Singapore and Canada. If I have forgotten any country, please get in touch with us by replying to this e-mail. 5. Do you want to teach a workshop, we still are looking for some workshop leaders. I think that's it for now. More will come soon I'm sure. We are approaching being a month out, it is getting very close. See you in Orlando. Best wishes, Gregory Cohen Chairman 2012 WYYC.
