sorry for the slow down in posts these past few days, we’ve just had so many awesome things going on its been hard to find the time. The past couple days we’ve done demos on various army bases around Colorado Springs, and I have to say, I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many yo-yos fly out the doors in such a short period of time! It wasn’t like people just bought themselves a yo-yo as novelty either, almost everyone bought a yo-yo so they had something of their own to learn with us on. We’ve probably taught several hundred individuals everything from dribble up to rock the cradle in the past 3 days. Insanity!
Today took the cake though. We had an awesome demo at Fort Carson, and then proceeded towards Yoyo Loco in Manitou, the town we visited when first arriving in Colorado. Upon arrival we found an already gathered crowd of people sitting in the 15 rows of bench seating in front of a small roofed stage. We quickly laid out our show to include John and Jen, set up the van and kicked off the most amazing 30 minutes of skill toys you’ll ever see. Within the first 7 minutes we had every bench seat crammed and at least 20+(at least 30 at one point) people lining the sides. By the end I’d say we had a crowd of between 75-100 people! As usual I ran as MC throughout the whole show and I’m not sure I’ve ever had a crowd that responsive before, it was fantastic.
Unfortunately while running a show its a little hard to be taking pictures and video, but Jen’s parents were there and her father has a top notch camera which he used all evening. They’ll be passing along a bunch of pictures to us tomorrow and I can’t wait to share them with all of you. We’ve got some pictures of our own coming too, along with a series of short video features and our next clip video. Keep an eye out because some cool content is headed your way the second we can sit down and export some stuff!
Oh, and the three of us just kind of realized Nationals is literally in a few days! So psyched! Who’s gonna be there?!
