Sometimes we serve it up right..one time, two times, THREE TIMES!!! Today was exactly that. The ultra powerful have no need for rest. There is entirely too much rocking to do.
We started the whole shabang out with a great stop at the Learning Express in Southlake, Texas. It was great. Their store is super high traffic so, we ended up having so many people to teach that we broke up into three squads just to get time with them all. That is nothing but, the coolest. The best part is that everyone was super committed to the event and we ended up with some people learning a whole lot in a very short time. Speaking of commitment, we even had a few guys come all the way down from southern Arkansas with their father. It was more than a five hour drive and they wanted to be at tour stops that bad! That is so very humbling. It definitely made us feel extra special to know that they put in that much effort and love Duncan Crew that much. They have our love and support for sure!
Of course, they didn’t make the drive just to kick it with us at one demo. We met up with them again at our next stop at the Puzzle Zoo in Dallas. This was another super busy stop and everyone took to throwing Duncan like fish to water. It is getting obvious that people are getting to their holiday shopping and it is equally obvious that the gift of always is a Duncan yo-yo. What could be cooler? Nothing! People were so into what we were doing that we saw people picking up yo-yos across almost the entire range. Some people got Freehands. Some people got Butterflies. Some people even got Metal Zeros. Everyone got something timeless. I love touring this time of year.
Unfortunately, our friends from Arkansas had to make the long drive home so, they couldn’t meet us at the next show but, that did not stop us from putting it on in style. Froggie’s 5&10 in Highland Park has proven to be great to us time and time again. The folks there dig our work so much that they have even been learning tricks off of their video store display while we’re not around. They know all the songs on it and they can recite the instructions to super hard tricks like double trapeze as if they are the alphabet. That sort of thing makes you know that you’ve been doing something right. The customers at Froggie’s are also top notch. We had quite a few people stop by and dig on what we do. Some of the people dug our work so much that they stopped by multiple times and even brought friends when they came back. If I could hang out there and jam daily, I would. Highland Park is just a cool area to be in and the people definitely make it that much cooler.
What a day. I just know that tomorrow’s contest is going to be amazing.
