Some cool news.
YoYoSkills.com received some info from Korda, Head of the EYYC organization board, and it looks like YoYoSkills.com will be streaming the entire 2010 European Yo-Yo Championship here on the site!
The contest is on the 30th – 31st of January.
I am told that you can register and read some history of the contest at http://eyyc.eu/.
It also looks like they will have a featured guest, Don Robertson, who was the Face of Duncan Europe and the 1953 European Championship.
On or around the 29th, I will put up a new post with the live feed embedded and setup.
It looks to be a great contest, and I really wish I could go.
