2005 World Yo-Yo Contest Mod Contest.
A contest for the best modified or home-made yo-yo
  • All entries must be submitted for judging at the event no later than 1:00 PM Friday, July 29, 2005; Entries should be turned in at the registration desk;
  • Only one (1) entry per person, and the entry must have been modded/made by one person;
  • Entries may be by proxy (Someone else can bring your yo-yo, you need not be at the world yo-yo contest to enter; however the person entering the yo-yo on your behalf must be familiar enough with the yo-yo and it's maker/modder to answer basic questions about the yo-yo);
  • All entries must be in a small bag or box and have the name, address, and e-mail if available of the person entering;
  • Written descriptions detailing the features of the yo-yo are encouraged (if the judges can't figure out what you've created, or all the important aspects thereof, it's your fault, not the judges');
  • The judging/scoring will be on a 0 to 100 point scale (with 100 points being the highest possible score). The criteria will be as follows:
    • Innovation and creativity (including creative use of materials) = 0 - 30 points
    • Quality, fit & finish, and visual & artistic appeal = 0 - 40 points
    • "Playability" = 0 - 30 point

This year, an additional award will be given for the best "home made" entry. This is not a separate competition, just a recognition of the best yo-yo made from scratch (to be eligible, the only parts that come from production yo-yos may be spacers, bearings or axle screws).

Judges: Dave Schulte, Frank Difeo, Bill De Boisblanc

Additional and/or replacement judge(s) to be named later.
