Can’t stop! Won’t stop! We are keeping it warm here in Cleveland.
Let’s be honest, part of playing well is looking good. So we started the day off with Takeshi as he visited his stylist and got his long flowing hair done up right. Heidi Grubuagh has the skills for real. This was exactly what we needed to put the fire in the demo this evening and it happened better than we could have planned.
PlayMatters is a great store in a great spot. It seems everyone who walked through the door was so surprised to see Duncan Crew throwing down and so into it as soon as they knew what was going on. Even passersby were drawn in. It just goes to show that you can end up putting on a great show with some great players placed in a great location.
As seems to be the momentum as of late, the demo had a great mix of people in attendance. All ages, some quick learners and some special guests. Mike Burke got out there with us and brought his family out to support. It was so nice seeing him out of the office and contest environment. A real family man with an obvious love for Duncan yo-yos.
Speaking of family, the Dewolf family came out and blew the doors off the place with the steep learning curve. Young Ryan came in knowing primarily how to get the yo-yo back to his hand. He left throwing around the worlds and working on FH aerials. Ryan’s dad, Dave, came out not playing at all and left looping and doing brain twister. It was so very inspiring seeing a father and son bond over learning to play yo-yo. The social aspects of play are so often overlooked but, are very powerful.
