Tyler Severance landed a nice interview in the Shawnee Dispatch to promote the YoYoFactory 80-70-80 tour’s upcoming appearances in Kansas City, Kansas and the surrounding areas on March 24th – 28th.
Tyler, Clint Armstrong, and Joe Wilson will all be appearing at area schools and Go Big Skill Toys, and working hard to create more new yoyo players.
Severance said the goal of Team YoYoFactory, which is made up of a group national and world yo-yo champions, is to change the negative perceptions that exist about yo-yos and yo-yoing.
“We want to show them that yo-yos are so much different now,” he said.
The main difference is how yo-yos have evolved with the addition of the ball bearing in the middle.
“Now you can learn and do the same tricks we are doing with the same yo-yo if they practice,” he said.
Severance, along with his YoYoFactory teammates, Joe Wilson and Clint Armstrong, plan to bring that message to Shawnee later this month for a weeklong visit.
Team YoYoFactory will be appearing at Go Big Skill Toys, 12156 Shawnee Mission Parkway, from March 24-29.
