2014 Las Vegas Open YoYo Championship & SkillCon
We’re excited to announce the 2014 Las Vegas Open YoYo Championship, a new event that will be held in conjunction with SkillCon, a massive skill toy convention and competition to be held this December at the Riviera Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. The Las Vegas Open is an IYYF-sanctioned event that will serve as the Multi-National event for North & South America, seeding to the final round of the 2015 World YoYo Contest in Tokyo, Japan.
The main competition will be held December 29th and 30th, and on December 31st we’ll be holding special workshops and best trick contests, ending with an all-night glow & light-up prop party to ring in the New Year!
SkillCon is an 8-day convention that will include the Las Vegas Open YoYo Championship, the 10th World Juggling Federation Championship, as well as an international flair bartending competition and a massive kendama event. Running from December 26th – January 2nd, SkillCon will have portions of the event filmed for broadcast on ESPN International, and we’re working to make sure the yoyo competition is part of that filming schedule!
The Las Vegas Open website is live, and you can follow the event on Facebook for fast updates.

YoYoNews.com x YoYoNews.jp
YoYoNews.com and YoYoNews.jp have officially joined forces to bring yoyo players around the world the latest and greatest in all yoyo information!
YoYoNews.com was registered by André Boulay in 2008 with idea of creating a news site that would help unify and inform the international yoyo community. It wasn’t until André was approached by hyperactive overachiever Steve Brown who offered to run the site in November of 2012 that YoYoNews.com was finally launched.
YoYoNews.exblog.jp was launched by World Champion Shinya Kido in 2006 to keep the Japanese yoyo community more informed about contests, new releases, and information about what was happening in the international yoyo scene. In 2010 he relaunched the site as YoYoNews.jp.
The two sites have loosely shared information before but now we’ve officially joined forces to post translations of each other’s articles, expand our range of interviews and contest coverage, and work together to create even more original content for the benefit of the yoyo community and industry worldwide.
The two sites will continue to operate independently of each other, but now we’ll be actively working together to share information. Thanks to Shinya-san and his staff for joining with us, and we look forward to working with them to bring even more amazing content to the yoyo community.
