The Westin LAX is the Official Hotel of the 2015 National Yo-Yo Contest

By booking in the block of rooms for the Contest, you get a discounted rate for your stay and discounted parking (if you are driving), and you will be on site for Friday prelims as well! Booking at the official hotel also helps the NYYL gather accurate numbers for the growth of the event, creating more opportunities for a bigger, better National YoYo Contest in other US cities.

All prelims activities will be at the Westin on Friday, September 25th in the evening. Check out the new contest website, NationalYoYoContest.com, for a full schedule of events.
