For the past few weeks (I think, actually, it’s been around 2 months), my brother Isaac and I have been performing outside YoYoLoco, on Main Street in Breckenridge, CO. This has been a combination of YoYo Nights (Where we get our friends to come together for an evening and YoYo outside), working at YoYoLoco, and just plain performing for fun.
We’ve gotten to meet some cool people and we’ve gotten to teach some cool people, and that’s been awesome. Watching Isaac perform is a great thing to see – He starts out slow, he tells me he doesn’t want to perform. I convince him to do one 1-minute performance. After he performs, he decides he’ll do one more. And then another. And then a few more. By then, a crowd usually gathers (depending if we were performing inside or outside), and he’s all in.
I join in occasionally, but that always seems to go… terribly. Eh, I’ll get it eventually. I just have to stop doing tricks that make me get knots in my string the majority of the time… Anyways, a few weeks ago we got to meet Jason Gartling, as I probably mentioned in a previous post. He’s a crazy-good YoYo player, who traveled to the World YoYo Contest this year, entered the Wild Card round, qualified, and placed 52nd in the preliminary round, which I think is respectable!
A while ago, I made a YouTube channel for Isaac, which is called YoYoTravel (go check it out!). I’ve recorded and edited a few videos here and there for him, and I think that although we fail a lot, the videos really showcase all the fun that we had while performing inside and outside, night and day, at YoYoLoco. I’ll embed a few of them below, so you can get a good idea of what we do when we perform 🙂
We’ve been having a great time, and even though it’s not summer anymore, I’m hoping we can get all our friends together again to perform and YoYo. There’s even talk of hosting a YoYo Contest…. And that would be really epic!
