WYYC Update #4
Just some quick updates.
1. Freestyle Yo-Yo Rules (or most of them) are now posted at http://www.worldyoyocontest.com Expect some fine tweaks to these rules over the next few weeks.
2. Prices for registration will go up. The 15th is the last day to register at the current prices. Save money and register now. You register for the contest at www.WorldYoYoContest.com
3. Hotel rooms are almost gone at the Rosen, if you want a room there, make your reservations now. Remember they don't charge until shortly before worlds, and you can cancel your reservations.
4. Lets welcome the latest sponsors. C3yoyodesign, Dif-e-yo, A2Z, Rewind and Yoyocommunity.com. Thank you for your support. Please make sure you take time to thank all the sponsors when you are at worlds. We could not do this without them.
5. If you are having trouble with a Visa to get into the USA for the WYYC, contact us. We can help in small ways, but this is what we are here to do.
6. If you see any news about the WYYC in print, TV or whatever, please forward us a link, or just tell us about it. We know of about 8 reporters contacting us about local players, and we would love to know if the stories they are working on run.
7. We are still looking for someone who wants to make the logo for the 2013 WYYC. If your logo is selected you will get free admission to the 2013 worlds.
8. If you want to teach a workshop, or have a great idea for one you want to take, contact us. We are specifically looking for someone to teach a beginner Diabolo workshop.
9. I just got word that the Mod room will have a 3D printer in it this year. Yes the WYYC is going for replicator technology.
10. If you plan to use your seed, get up with us. Info on the site under Rules>Seeds
Things are coming along well. More updates when they are ready. See you in Orlando.
