Posted in Daily Post, Events, Uncategorized, Update, Yo-yos on October 16th, 2009 by Brandon Jackson

Hey everyone!
Brandon here reporting from the highways of California as we head to our next stop in Temecula. I joined the guys on tour about 3 days ago and boy its been a blast. Having the opportunity to travel and teach kids and grownups alike how to yo-yo and spread the hobby I love is priceless to me. So to be a part of this tour is an honor. The guys I get to be on this tour with aren’t only my friends, they are my heroes as well.

I’ll be posting more and more as we travel, filling you in on all the fun stuff that Duncan’s 80th Anniversary tour brings our way. So now that Ive made my introduction, I’d like to show you some fun photos of my first 3 days on tour with Seth, Paul, Emil, and Glasseye.

Below you’ll find a collection of photos from the tour stops at Puzzle Zoo in Costa Mesa CA, Totally Thomas Toy Depot in San Diego, Toys Etc in La Jolla, and Learning Express in N. San Diego.

Hey fellas, glasseye here. Just wanted to do a quick update before I head out to meet the rest of the crew at The Temecula Children’s Museum. The Southern California leg of the Duncan 80th Anniversary Tour is coming down to it’s last 3 days. If you haven’t had a chance to make it out yet, then hang your head low in shame. Don’t worry too much though… we’re ending the Southern California leg with some really choice venues. Here’s today’s schedule:

Imagination Workshop @ The Temecula Children’s Museum
42081 Main St.
Temecula, CA 92590
Time: 1:00 – 4:00pm

Thinker Things @ The Lomas Santa Fe Plaza
943 Lomas Santa Fe Drive
Solana Beach, CA 92075
Time: 6:00 – 8:00pm

You definintely won’t want to miss the huge demo tomorrow at the Party in the Park Event from 11:00am – 4:00pm in Alpine, CA. From what I hear we’ll have some DXL Crew members coming down to hang with the Duncan Crew guys. I don’t have an address yet, but you call up Christie’s Toys Outlet for the information (619) 659-9898.

Update: I spoke to Christie and the event will take place at:

Viejas Outlet Center
5000 Willows Road
Alpine, CA 91901
Time: 11:00am – 4:00pm

According to Christie, they are expecting a minimum of 5,000 people at this event (in the past they’ve had up to 10,000). You’ll be directed to park at the nearby casino and then walk your way over to the center. Look for us somewhere in the courtyard.

Also, just wanted to give a shout to Emil who did his final demo of the tour last night. Much love to you Emil. Hope you finally get a chance to rest!
