Well, it finally happened! After a solid month of preparation I finished organizing and executing the 2009 Idaho (State) Yo-Yo Championships at the Gem County Cherry Festival in Emmett, ID. I had 10 competitors attend and participate this year and one judge (John Bozung).
Because the other judges had some difficulties making it this year, I got to judge this year’s competition with John which was fun and informative. Here’s a picture of the participants this year:
The projects I currently have related to this ‘finished project’ include the production of an event DVD which would include images from the event, the competitors freestyles, the awards ceremony, and other various bits of info including the sponsors, judges, event staff, etc.
The other project branching off of IDYYC09 is an Event Organizer’s Handbook on how to organize a yo-yo contest. It’s my attempt to make it so easy to throw a yo-yo contest that there is no excuse not to.
