I remember Heath (vsnewton) lives somewhere very south, other than that the state is pretty dead for yo-yoing. I guess the hobby isn't conservative enough.

LOL.. probably

And thanks, I did see that HVizier (Heath?) was from in the area too.

Yep that's him, I should probably stop posting early in the morning when my memory is not working so quick yet.

bump.

I'm split between the North Shore and Baton Rouge. Maybe one day we should get something happening for real.

A friend of mine just started throwing and I'm starting to think it would be good to meet other throwers in real life. BR area seems like the most convenient general location to meet thus far. Should we do this or what?

*crickets*  ;D

Hammond?

You're in Hammond or proposing a place to meet? That's closer to me (half the time) but not so close to others... if we can ever get this happening, that is.

Looks like there are a few of us in LA.  I'd be into meeting up and throwing some yoyos if anyone else is.  I live in BR and have weekends and evenings free for the most part.

How about it, LA yoyo meet up?  I for one am tired of reading about meets and yoyos clubs in far off lands (I'm looking at you Texas).  So lets put the word out and make it happen.

UPDATE: Both the wolfman and I are in Baton Rouge pretty much so we're going to have a meet up around there - and it might be convenient for other folks too. So far it seems that weekday evenings look good. Let us know if you can meet in the BR area and/or if you have a location suggestion. I'm looking forward to meeting some real life yoyoers around these parts.. cheers.

This hasnt been posted in for awhile but im from hammond. Recently moved back with the parents in franklinton, dang economy! I would love to meet up in Baton Rouge with you guys, im trying to put together a club that meets regularly but im not really active on yyn. I currently meet up with Nate Sutter, Jim Johnson, David (dmz), and Heath. We havent all met together or anything but id love to meet some other throwers around louisiana. Mandeville is actually really close to me but im willing to drive to BR too. Hit me up guys!
