This was a big Nationals for me. It was the first time my book was available for purchase in a retail store (Bird in Hand subsequently sold out), YoYoSkills.com was attempting to live blog, and then this happened…. Bob got up in between divisions and started talking about the National Achievement award, how only a handful of people had gotten this recognition, and how the current recipient was making leaps and bounds keeping the yo-yo public informed. My buddy Nolan looked at me and said, “He is talking about you, give me your camera.” and before I could say “Huh?” Bob announced my name.
I am honored.
Thank you National Yo-Yo League. Thank you readers for following YoYoSkills.com. Thank you YoYoSkills.com Journalism team for your work on the site. Thank you to my Wife who lets me squeeze web time into everyday life. Thank you Gunter and Nolan who constantly fix my grammar. Thank you yoyo manufactures who send me review units and email me news.
I am honored, and I will try to live up to what this recognition stands for.
Thank you again Thad, Bob, Richie and the National Yo-Y0 League. You really have no idea how much this means to me.
