OwnerRick Brough

Yo-yo patch commemorating the 1999 Midwest Regional (MWR) Yo-Yo Championship. The MWR Championship had its start February 14, 1998 at the University of Minnesota. The following year the championship was held at the Mall of America on Sunday, May 6, 1999. The contest consisted entirely of fixed axle yo-yo string tricks.

See the 1999 MWR Championship results, including the list of string tricks in each of the four divisions (last accessed January 2, 2022).

From the MWR website:
"The Midwest Regional Yo-Yo Championships is one of the regional contests of the National Yo-Yo League. It encompasses nine Midwestern states (Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska). The winners of the 1A – 5A Championship divisions get seeded to the National Yo-Yo contest. National Yo-Yo Master and head judge 'Dazzling Dave' Schulte is the organizer of the event."
