Yo-Yo Carving Contest and Carving Circle.
Mark Hayward just confirmed that there will be a yo-yo carving contest at this years worlds.
"We will be having a yo-yo carving contest at The World Yo-yo Contest this year. You can carve any kind of yo-yo with any tool you want. There are no restrictions other than you have to carve on a yo-yo. The plan at the moment is to have one winner, but depending on the entries we may split the contest into two categories: knife carved, and non-knife carved. The winner will get a personalized yo-yo carved by the one and only Dale Oliver, and massive heaps of glory."
and of course we will also have a yo-yo carving circle/workshop.
See the program for times when you get to Worlds.
