Hummingbird Yo Utah! pin
Exhibit #1096
Size5.5 cm
OwnerRick Brough

A Hummingbird-era pin.

This pin was a give-away during a yo-yo contest sponsored by Hummingbird and local kite/juggling/yo-yo store "The Air Apparent" in Salt Lake City, Utah. Dale Myberg was the judge. "The Air Apparent" changed it's store name to "Hi-Jinks" and was a long-time customer of Hummingbird and BC/What's Next. Unfortunately, the store went out of business in October 2004. The store hosted semi-annual yo-yo contests for many years and was THE place for yo-yo players and supplies, including the now very rare and valuable backwards engraved Tom Kuhn yo-yos. Chuck Short, among other great players, got his start in yo-yoing because of Dale and this store.
