Yoyo Contest to Decide Best in State

Winner earns seed in the 2018 West Coast Regional Contest

 

Chandler, AZ – Yoyo’s will take center stage at the Chandler Community Center as participants compete for the title of state champion at the Arizona State Yoyo Contest. The event, which is free to spectators, takes place on Saturday, March 10 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

 

“We are excited to bring this event to Chandler for the first time and encourage yoyo artists, both beginners and advanced players, to take part,” said Stephanie Riley of event sponsor YoYoFactory.

 

Yoyo players have the option to compete in the novice or professional division. Within the pro division, choreographed routines are set to music as multiple styles are represented. Various forms include “off string” yoyo, where the yoyo is not attached to the string, and two yoyos being used at the same time. Not only will winners of the pro division claim the state champion prize, but will earn a seed to compete in the 2018 West Coast Regional Yoyo Contest to be held on June 30th, 2018 in Chicago, IL.  In order to compete, yoyo players can sign-up online with a registration fee of $15.

 

As a special bonus, 2014 World Yoyo Champion Gentry Stein will be on hand contributing his talents as a judge. This event is open to the public and seats are available on a walk-in basis with a capacity up to 350. Spectators can make a day of it by not only watching incredible talent, but can join in the fun by learning how to yoyo. Community donated raffle prizes will also be given out.

Arizona Powerball Winner Hoax in Facebook – What’s Hot in Social Media?

 

Arizona Powerball Winner Hoax in Facebook – December 06, 2012
What’s Hot in Social Media?
… with The Social Network Princess

 

Hey there, I’m Cindy with seenBEST Web Design.

 

So, a guy by the name of Nolan Daniels decided to upload this picture of himself claiming to have the winning ticket for the Powerball lottery last week. The jackpot was worth over $500,000,000 (that’s five hundred million dollars!). The guy uploaded the picture and then stated that he would give away a million dollars to a random person if they shared the image. The picture has now been shared over 1 million times on Facebook!

 

I came across it through several friends that had shared it on their page, but shortly after the ticket was confirmed to be a fake. This is not the winning ticket. One of the main parts of the ticket that proves it’s not the winning ticket is the numbers. The numbers should be in numerical order, a real ticket would have the numbers in order and this one does not.

 

You can tell that this image was poorly photoshopped, but a little of people did fall for the hoax and I must admit that I almost did so myself. Did you fall for the hoax? Share your thoughts with me.
