You have to hand it to YoYoExpert for running, or at least helping to run, a number of contests for the throwing community. Sure, the fact that it probably helps generate more business doesn’t hurt them at all, but it is still a lot of fun regardless. Anyway, there is a new yo-yo video contest being organized by community member Greg Pettit in cooperation with YoYoExpert and whole bunch of other big names in the yo-yo world. The Battle of the Elders Video Contest is specifically targeting the older crowd of throwers, and by that they mean anyone 30+ years old.
Sadly, I must admit that I am part of that group although I won’t be entering because I am just too shy. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enter! There are two divisions for those with less than a year of thrower experience and those with more. Oh, and there is a tonne of prizes up for grabs. I recommend reading through the official contest thread over on the YoYoExpert forums because it contains a huge number of details about how to enter, the rules, the judges, and the prizes. If you are 30+ years old and aren’t as shy as I am about your throwing skills then I encourage you to check out the Battle of the Elders Video Contest and considering entering! The deadline for submissions was just extended until 11:59 pm EST on Monday, November 9.
