So, PNWR was a lot of fun. It was the first official yo-yo contest that I have attended, and it was really great to see so many throwers all in one place. It was also really nice to meet so many people that I have chatted with via the internet (and in some cases by phone) within the throwing community. And I must give a big thanks to all of the throwers that recognized the Cyyclical shirt that I was wearing and came up to chat about how they liked the site. I really appreciate the kind words and feedback that I received from all of you (too many to remember all of the names, I am afraid).
The yo-yo booths were my favourite part of PNWR, and getting to see a lot of new throws from different companies was terrific. Oh and I think there were a few guys competing or something in the background. I kid, the contests themselves were amazing to watch. Plus, it was really great to see my friend, Jeremy “Mr. YoyoThrower” McKay, take first place in the 4A division. Way to go, Jeremy!
If you didn’t get a chance to attend the PNWR 2016, all of the results are now online at the contest’s website. In addition, a whole wack of contestant videos have been uploaded for you to check out. I have included a few below for you to watchy (including Jeremy’s winning performance), and you can find the rest over at the YoYo Contest Central YouTube channel. Enjoy!
