PNWR 2018 My Son Wins Novice 1a!


Recommended Posts

So as some may recall my son Evan has decided that yo yo'ing is his passion and has been obsessed with it for the last 18 months.

Last year we made a trek to Seattle to after 3 months of yo'ing to attend the 2017 PNWR were Evan placed 10th in the novice 1a division.

Fast forward one year and countless hours yo'ing and the magnificent little bugger places first with authority! He scored a 92.3 and the 2nd place kid was at 69.3.

Crazy to watch how much he has grown and how far he has progressed!

Enjoy and share around!

Great stuff mate! I can't even comprehend the talent, dexterity and commitment it would take to become that good.  I don't know what the next Division after Novice 1A is, but with such a dominating victory he must be confident for next year.

Neat-o. Once again, I am impressed by (and a little envious of) your boy's mad yo skillz, haha.  I was never able to do more than the basic "walk the dog" and "round the world" tricks....

FFS, that's impressive!  Not only the moves, but that he's put in the time and effort to get that good, particularly at that age.  My lazy ass was only worried about making money from my paper routes and, as I see now, wasting it on football & baseball cards.

Congrats Terry!  A damn proud papa you should be.

Thanks for all the kind words and kudo's everyone!

Yes it is a heck of thing and we are riding the current wave of "fandom". 

Evan had to get an Instagram and his Youtube video and Instagram are all a buzz with accolades and new yo yo friends, peers and admirers.

As for what is next, we are looking at some more "local" competitions (Northern California, Idaho and Arizona) in the junior and novice brackets to further hone the craft. 

After that he would move into plain ole' 1a competitions where the play is nuts. He is well on his way and if all goes well he will be competing in 1a next year and who knows, maybe a National or even a Worlds competition??? 

All up to him as it is his thing, we are just a conduit to his goals.

Thanks again everyone and watch that video, comment and share around!

    • ....If we have something negative to say we will surely let it fly
    • Still waiting for the  2 inch dick Chinese to be held responsible for giving the world the plague.POS Biden Admin and their pussy diplomatic boycott - forget the entire d@mn thing.Send NO athletes.
    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
