REWIND “OVER 40″ Video Contest


REWIND “Over 40” Yo-Yo Video Contest

Our next video contest is…
The [REWIND “Over 40” Yo-Yo Video Contest]!
One of the most wonderful things about yo-yo is that it’s an activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Yo-Yoing is most definitely NOT just for kids. We thought it would be fun to see what our adult players can do, so this time the video contest is just for those 40 years old and up!

Not only do we like to see adults playing yo-yo, but we like it even more to see them compete on stage! As a Special Award this time, we will sponsor the chosen winner for one official regional contest and pay their competition entry fee for one division.
(Of course, even if you win the Special Award, whether you choose to compete or not is up to you!)

Sound good? Come check out the details below!


– The featured yo-yo player must be at least 40 years old or older (the photographer and/or video editor may be of any age. Also, people under the age of 40 may appear in the video, but the main focus of the video should be on the 40+ player).
