At the 2017 National Scout Jamboree held at Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia, Duncan had a yo-yo scout booth that gave participants an opportunity to try out various Duncan yo-yos, like the Hornet and the Freehand.

Duncan also created a yo-yo award program with 5 levels that each scout could earn. The Duncan Hornet yo-yo was recommended for levels 1 and 2, and the Duncan Freehand was recommended for levels 3, Advanced, and Master.

Within each level, you were given a trick card outlining 3 to 5 tricks you had to successfully complete to earn that level's patch and advance to the next level.

Unlike a yo-yo competition where you were competing against many other individuals, this system meant you were competing with yourself to do your best. First class Duncan!
