Cant wait to come back to Georgia.

Today was our last day in Georgia :(
But our new friend/hero Bob Rule came out to our final Georgia demo to spend some time with us and learn some new tricks before our departure. And so did Doug Grice! Seth taught them both Boingy Boing! Bob’s daughter also came out to the demo along with his grandson who was excited to learn some new tricks from his grandad. Before we knew it we had everyone wanting to learn!

Soon after putting a yo-yo in their hands, Lindsay and sister Shelby had mastered the basics as well! Nothing is more exciting than teaching someone how to yo-yo and seeing the look on their face when they first land a trick. Its priceless.

After our demo we spent our last hour in Georgia with Bob to record the commentary for a special video to be released tommorow. Keep an eye out for that! Its something that every yo-yoer should take the time to watch.

During our drive from Marietta Georgia to Richmond Virginia, Seth and I decided to stop and eat in North Carolina. And who better to take a break with than Ed Haponik? Thanks for coming out Ed!

Woodstock!

Today we had the opportunity to spend some time with Bob Rule at his place before heading to our demo at Learning Express in Woodstock. Bob has one amazing collection with stories to match each and every yo-yo. It’s easy to lose track of time and spend hours talking with him and looking over his relics of yesteryear that yoyoing has brought to him.

Bob decided to join us for our demo later that day, which was a blast. Several local yo-yo players showed up to hang out with us as well. Having Doug Grice, Jim Panky, and Bob Rule by your side is a guarantee to have a good time.  The crowd gathered, and they loved us.

It was truly a great day in Georgia.  After a quick photo op with local guys and the van, we headed to a great dinner. Boy, I sure am going to miss Atlanta!
