5 pm Xtreme fifteen...The contest for the ultimate Yo-Yoing Hot Dog. This is a unsanctioned event and the World Championships and the AYYA are looking the other way. You get fifteen seconds on stage to impress some non yo-yo literate judges. You must be playing the yo-yo (skill is a plus) but extreme presentation, bizarre behaviors and weird attires are a definite must. Trophy will be awarded (plus a champions copy of "Lucky's Collectors Guide to 20th century yo-yos). Please note...Use of full frontal nudity, human blood and anything remotely resembling weapons of mass destruction will be grounds for immediate increase in point score. Congratulations to Matt Harlow who won the Xtreme 15 trophy 2003.
5:45 pm Air Yo-Yo... Never caught air while yo-yoing...well now's your chance. Jump off the starting block into the pool while yo-yoing. Best air yo-yoing wins the prize... but remember to bring a towel and change of clothes. Congratulations to Tim Stimco who won the air yo-yo trophy 2003.
6:00 pm VIP Bar be que (Ticketed Event)...Not a yo-yo company president or a former World Champion, never fear you can still attend the best Yo-Yoing gustatory event in the world. Just purchase your ticket with advance registration and join the rich and famous of the yo-yo world.
