I don't think there are any concrete answers for either question just yet.

Most probably in Adelaide, and I'm guessing we'll stick with the compulsories for 1A but not 100% certain.

Time sure is going by quickly. Seems like only yesterday I was making a complete tool of myself in the Y division.

I don't mind hitting up the sponsors from previous years if noone else has that sorted out. I do up a fancy looking html email that tends to impress.

Ok...

Australian National Yo-Yo Championships
The following is subject to change
Location - Adelaide, SA
Proposed Dates - 13/14/15th March 2009

This very important event has been pencilled in my diary for quite some time.
Yet to be confirmed but events planned for Friday Night (Friday 13th ooooh), Saturday Lunch, Saturday Night and Sunday Lunch.

We are getting the location(s) locked in as well as accomodation...
I am hoping to attract as many local and interstate (and a few international) visitors with a focus on keeping the cost to a minimal for all.

Accomodation
The plan is to nominate a local hotel, backpackers and also to secure a community hall for all to stay while in Adelaide.
(A hall with toilets, showers, power and possible kitchen area plus working on internet access as well).

Sponsorship/Judging/Guests
At present I have two international guests visiting for Australian Nationals. One to MC the event and the other to Judge. The other judges to be confirmed. Cookee, I may need you but keep practicing your compulsaries just in case.
One major sponsor already comitted. More to follow. (Mick, I will talk to you about that yo-yo Sponsorship letter ). Some local companies have been approached to help with the hall, stage, sound etc

Divisions
At present the decision on divisions (1A, Y etc) and the use of compulsaries plus the tricks for Sports Ladder has not been decided. This being said - it may not change either so practice your compulsaries. Remeber they count to your final score.

Sports Ladder tricks may look something like this next year...
Sports Ladder Videos

Freestyles are planned to be done on a main stage with full public access. The public are invited to attend (no charge) - the more people, the more fun.

Other things proposed:
Workshops - Intro to 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A
Workshops - Modding Session/Dying Session
Ava-go-shops - Spin Tops/Jitter Rings/Juggling
Guest Freestyles on Stage
Spin Top Stage Demo
Diabolo/Juggling Stage Demo
Fixed Axle Challenge

Plus filming a Nats Trick Video...

Suggestions, suggestions...
Please give me some feedback on the dates above and suggestions I have made.

Sounds good Stu, I would really love to judge at next years nats if possible. If you had someone else in mind though I will probably just wing compsularies like I did this year. Anywho I'm definatly down.

Edit: for the dying workshop, I really hope it isn't going to be a bunch of us crowding around a microwave while acetone is being nuked ;)

I just has a chat with my mum. And she said making it to Nats was a possibility. :D
I might have to take you back up on that offer Stu.. might! Nothing concrete yet. But I'll do my best.

Can I go in the fixed axle challenge? :lol:
