Our first stop on tour has concluded! Speaking to you from Salt Lake City Utah at the moment. But our last week in Nevada City is what I want to talk about. It being our first stop we had our share of troubles, but those were outweighed heavily by our experiences! First we broke down from Phoenix to San Fransisco, after that fiasco we had a exciting sleepless PNWR weekend. Then Nevada City! During our 5 days we had demonstrations at 9 schools and taught kids how to yo yo everyday at Mountain Pastimes. We had incredible turnouts! Everyday we had more kids than the last! By the end of the week all the kids were talking about a club and how they could all continue to practice yoyoing. Nevada City, Success!

Words from us.

Tyler Severance

” With every tour there are challenges, but in Nevada city they were mainly good ones. There was only so much space to teach new players. There were only so many people who were able to teach new players. But toward the end of the week when the rain started things got more cramped. With that showed up all the local players who were a huge help with new players, and entertaining parents.”

Joe Wilson

” The Nevada city stop on tour was great! We noticed early that the city was small, so we were hoping to reach out to most of the kids. As the week went on we noticed an increase in kids each day leading up to the contest on Friday . I’m positive that our visit brought the most kids to mountain past times than ever befor . My favorite part from that town was that I was able to make a difference in a child’s life. At the end of the week a kid gave me a letter telling me I got him back into yoyoing . The feeling of making an impact on a kid who I never met before made all the work worth it.”

Clint Armstrong

” This 80 70 80 Tour is YoYoFactory’s longest tour ever. We’ve had a lot of build up going into it. We could not have had a better start than with Nevada City! The dedication and passion that the local kids showed was so inspiring. Putting a yoyo into someone’s hand and then seeing them improve in a matter of minutes Is a feeling I can’t put into words. Nevada City is a very quaint town, and is a small community in itself. I would love to go back in a year and see how far the yoyo community has grown!

Joe Wilson has always has something new to show off. He’s no stranger to stage or screen. With some great freestyles this year, and great video parts. His newest is no exception. $tylin has a sick soundtrack, tricks that made the whole crew go “Wow!” and as always, he’s looking good while he does it.
