The 2016 Canadian Nationals was held March 26th in Toronto, and it was a great showing of talent from all over Canada. The amazingly talented Luckey Li took home his second Canadian National Champion title, and organizer Wayne Ngan kept the contest running smoothly and on-time. Congrats to all the winners!
The 2016 Canadian National YoYo Contest is coming up soon, and the registration deadline is coming up even quicker!
The deadline to register for the event is Monday, March 7th. You can upload your music as late as March 21st, but you need to get registered NOW.
Vendors for the event will include Return Top Shop, CLYW, and MND.
The event takes place Saturday, March 26th at the Ontario Science Center in Toronto. The Science Center is great, and Toronto is a super fun city to just hang out and do some shopping. I personally recommend you fill up on coffee and sugar at Glory Hole Doughnuts, then hit the excellent The Paper Place for all kinds of amazing paper, pens, and stationary supplies and Type for one of the best curated book selections I’ve ever seen. Yay for books and paper and stuff!
See you in Toronto!
Cirque du Soleil has kicked off the North American tour of its “Kurios” show, featuring yoyo player Tomonari “Tom Black” Ishiguro! The show got a nice bit of press for opening night from The Torontoist, and apparently Black’s yoyo routine is somewhere around 10 MINUTES. Crazy!
