Paolo has really made this contest season his. He had a really strong early season, capturing local titles. Then, California States showed his potential. After that it was one solid freestyle after another. Once Worlds rolled around, he was ready. Making it all the way through prelims and semi-finals he held his own in Finals and had a stellar first time on the World Championship stage. Paolo secured a qualifier for Nationals, and was just shy of getting a full seed to finals.

Our last demo for this leg of the YoYoFactory West Coast Tour (don’t worry, there will be more!) we head to Napa for Blues, Brews and BBQ. A huge street festival that Toy B Ville has invited us too. On the left is Darren, the owner of Toy B Ville and a really rad guy (more on that later). On the right is John, he started the local scene here and heads the Yo-Yo club at Toy B Ville. It’s always so amazing to see passionate, dedicated young people take charge and create something awesome for their community.

 

 

All day we had patrons visiting our booth. Learning, watching and having a good time. We never grow tired of people saying, “Wow! These are so much better then the old yo-yos I used to have when I was a kid. I can actually DO tricks!”.

 

But yo-yoing wasn’t the only thing happening…

 

 

… Darren was defending his title as Rib Eating Champion. Last year he came in as a rookie and destroyed the competition with 27 ribs in 10 minutes.

 

 

And within a few minutes, it was apparent how hungry he was for another title. Taking down 12 ribs before most others were even close to double digits.

 

 

Chowing down on another 12, and he was well ahead of the pack. 3 away from his previous record.

 

 

As he sets his 33rd rib in the bowl there was a little less then a minute to go, and 5 ribs ahead of the closest competitor.

 

 

Your 2012 Champion, Darren!

 

Now, back to yo-yoing…

 

 

 

We had a full day at the festival. Everyone who stopped by was excited to learn yo-yo. We had first timers and old hands alike take YoYoFactory yo-yos for a spin.

 

 

 

Ann and Augie also wow’ed the crowd with demos. Showing what Modern Performance Yo-Yos were all about.

 

Thanks to Darren, John and the whole crew at Toy B Ville for a great event.

It’s been a while since we’ve posted something new from John Ando, but this was WELL worth the wait. The master of tricks and movement shows off at the 800 YoYo Class Freestyle contest, and takes home first! Will this mark a return of Ando to the contest stage?
