Ok...Australian National Yo-Yo ChampionshipsThe 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.
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).
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
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.

Workshops - Intro to 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A

Ava-go-shops - Spin Tops/Jitter Rings/Juggling
