When will te schedule be posted?
Here’s what we know so far regarding the schedule – and this may be subject to change:
Friday, May 27th – 1A Prelims from 6pm to 9pm at Hotel Kabuki (the contest hotel.)
Saturday, May28th – 10am to 4pm for Finals and awards in all divisions at the Bandshell in Golden Gate park.
Trying to make plans for the contest. Will there be any Yoyoing earlier in the day? Will the prelims take place no earlier than 6pm?
Looks like they have the schedule up on the main BAC website now. There will of course be socializing, and venue setup happening prior to 6pm on Friday, but the competition component will not be starting before then.
When does registration open for Texas state?
When does registration close?
Registration closes May 25th.
May 13th is the last day to book a hotel with the contest discount: http://yoyonews.com/2016/05/12/2016-bay-area-classic-update/
My name is Chauncy Roberts and I will beat you all.
Do you know when regestestion is?
Is it possible to send a different final song for 1A because I already sent my finals song but I don’t want to use it anymore.
There is no contact info for the bbq, and I have to google search the contest because I can’t access any part directly through yoyocontest.com it tells me I don’t have permission.
I am looking forward to competing and seeing all my friends over there. Especially Gentry Stein! I hope he autographs my Yo-Yo!
For music upload, our songs should be 2 minutes, right?
We have added a section with a list of divisions and times here: https://yoyocontest.com/mer/. In short, finals are all 2 minutes. You should prepare a 1 minute prelim if you are competing in 1A.

Do you know when the MA state yoyo contest is?
how can I sign up
Registration will be up shortly – still working a few new bugs out of the registration system.
I would love there to be one in nebraska. Please contact me if there will be one
Why do the competitions have to be so far away from meeee
Will you sell yoyos at this event
There will almost certainly be vendors at the event. Check the main event website (yoyocontest.com/pnwr/) for more details on that.
what states are in the region
Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana
Do you register online or the contest?
Registration will be online – expect it will be up and running this upcoming week.
How much does it cost to attend but not compete?
Free to attend as a spectator. Only a fee to compete.
Hoping to make it out to this event!
Should be a great time as usual! Hope you can make it.
is there prelims in az states.
There are no pre-lims for Div. X (2A, 3A, 4A).
There will be pre-lims for 1A if we have over 20 entrants. I think there were 30 last year, so come with a pre-lim 1-minute routine and a 2-minute final for the 1A championship division.
I’m trying to register, I have a nyyl account (or whatever the initials are) but every time I try to log on it locks me out
Usually this happens because the account has ‘expired’ – all of them expire on December 31st of the calendar year. So all 2016 accounts need to be renewed for 2017.
When is the music deadline? Thanks in advance.
When I signed up, the email never had gotten sent to me so I am wondering what I should do.
Hi Cameron – your registration is in there (three times actually!) – the automated confirmation email probably was caught in your spam folder. We’ve seen that the gmail accounts have a tendency to spam these out fairly regularly.
What vendors are going to be there?
Check the main competition website for the sponsors and/or contact the event organizer directly for those details.
Is the registration up for NJ states
Not yet – should be up within the week
What date is registration
Coming soon – should be up within the week
What does “Classic” mean, in this context?
Same 5 Divisions? Or is this event devoted to re-inventing Responsive???
I don’t think I can attend, but it would be pretty cool to see New Responsive that isn’t 2A.
Or Competition Level Fixed Axel for that matter…
There doesn’t seem to be a link explaining the event.
I’m going there to win
It would have been nice for the contest organizers to consider that Good Friday and Easter are holy days for many and not drop a yo yo contest between those days.
It is unfortunate that the competition is close to the religious days/holiday. However, on the other hand there are many people that do not celebrate. Not everything at times can be accommodated as we want.
The organizers and those attending from out of the Bay Area probably aren’t Christians since if they were they probably would want to be home with their families celebrating the most important Christian day.
If I place well here, can I secure a spot in Worlds?
A qualifying spot at the World Yo-Yo Contest is attained by winning a National Contest or placing in the top 10 at a National Contest. Regional or State Contests in the US don’t earn a spot into the Prelims or Semi-Finals at Worlds.
Sorry for the late response, but thanks!
What states are included in the south east region? Is Oklahoma included?
Oklahoma is in the ‘South Central’ region – the South East covers North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida
Do you know if they’re having a contest?
There is currently no one who has stepped up to coordinate an event as the Championship for the South Central region.
i like yoyo
On registration it says that each non 1A division will be seperate, but the contest website says it will be open division as a whole. Which one is it? Are prelims definately randomized music? Are non 1A divisions 1 or 2 minutes?
1A & 5A will be separate. Open will be 2A, 3A, 4A. Time limits will depend on number of registrants so be prepared for both. If you upload music before the cutoff you will use that music, if you don’t it is random in prelims
Where do I register there is no link on the website
Coming later today or tomorrow – had to get confirmation from the event organizer on fees for the divisions.
Can you do 5A in yoyo states utah

Is there a live stream?
Will there be a 4a wildcard?
Ultimately that will depend on the number of competitors registered to compete in 4A. Based on historic trends and competitor counts, we are anticipating that Open Qualifying (Wildcard) will only be necessary for 1A.
How 2a gonna work I know there’s usually not too many 2a competitor I know I’m going to be competing in 2a
Hi Noel – it will ultimately depending on the number of registered competitors in a division. For 2A, we will make the call after registration closes regarding the ability to bypass the Open Qualifying and/or Prelims rounds.
Can you be sponsored and compete in futures?
Yes – you just have to be 18 or younger.
Can you compete in pro and futures
Yes – as long as you are 18 or younger you can compete in the futures contest
How many people will be taken into semi-finals and then finals?
Hi Jaden – all the information regarding the progressions from prelims -> semi-finals -> finals is available here:
But to summarize – for semi-finals in 1A, the top 20 from prelims plus any pre-seeded competitors, then top 10 from prelims plus previous years National Champion go to Finals. For 2A, 3A, 4A, and 5A, it’s top 10 and top 5 respectively.
It says on the national yoyo contest website there will be a 4a wildcard. Will there be one one? I just need to know for practice reasons.
It will ultimately depend on the number of competitors registered into 4A – however, based on entries at this point, I don’t anticipate needing run the open qualifying for 4A. Once registration closes, the call will be made regarding the rounds that need to be run. -> Thad
Hi, If you are registered to compete in futures, do you need to buy a Spectator Pass to see the competetion on Friday and Saturday?
Regisgration to compete in the Futures contest includes spectator admission to Friday and Saturday of Nationals. No additional spectator pass needed.

You do not have to live in Texas to compete. For the purposes of ‘State Champion’ and similar rankings however, only the residents of the state will be considered. But everyone is welcome to participate.
But do you get judged and ranked? If you come in 1st, does the 1st person in Texas get state title?

Can somebody tell the creators of the website listed for the competition to update the website?
Sent them a message to rattle the cage
My son is getting good quick. He’s 11. Is this something that will entertain his passion or intimidate him ? He has an instaghram started and wants to get sponsersd. Is this a place to meet and greet some of his yoyo heros ? Looking for Inspiration?
We’ve never been to this particular event but we have travelled a good bit to attend different competitions and I’d have to say that we’ve never encountered anything but fun…the competitions are typically a laid back and casual atmosphere and the experienced yoyoers are often willing to help out and cheer on the younger (either by age or experience) crowd…good luck to your son! And be prepared to dodge yoyos for many years to come…my son is 18 and ALWAYS has a yoyo with him!! 🙂
What is the time limit for your routine in the 12-13 year old competition in 1a

Please move 1a prelims back to the main stage this year. They close the blinds in the loft where prelims has been held since 2015 compared to the stage lighting which makes the players/judges able to see the string.
