Yoz! Watch my Yo-yo!

20 November 2009

Members of the Yo-Yo Interest Group met for the first time at Eunos Community Club. The response of the interest group had been good, with more than 30 names in less than a month. Several members called the Eunos CC office now and then to check when the first meeting would be held.

Welcoming the members, Eunos CC YEC Vice-Chairman Fong Yoong Kheong conducted a short introductory session by explaining the purpose of the IG. Then, each of the members introduced themselves followed by a showcase of their best Yo-yo trick. It was an awesome display as they began splitting atoms, walking the dog, shoot rockets, and do bikinis (yea, it's not a typo).

Also in attendance were Eunos CC YEC Chairman Sear Hock Rong and Children's Programme Secretary Diana Chua.

After everyone introduced themselves, they were grouped according to their proficiency. They picked their group leaders and came out with their group names - Spin6, Yoyo Freakz, Laser, etc.

The "veteran" Yo-yo players then coached their peers into learning new tricks.

The next gathering would be held on 4 December 2009 (Friday) at Eunos Community Club. Feel free to join in!
