    Cool, I might actually be able to make this one; never been to Bedford though. I'm planning on being back in Texas for an extended Christmas stay.

    Completely blew my arrival time and only was able to catch the awards ceremonies. Glad I was able to meet a few players including our own @nikki_deo and grab a couple of Pineapple kendama (didn't know they were a Texas based company, woot!) Looking forward to next year.

    FB_IMG_1517103409513.jpg IMG_1044.jpg Super honored to have helped put this event together with @triggerscold huge shout out to all our sponsors and everyone who attended! It wouldn't be nearly the success it is without all of you!

    Also super stoked on winning 1st in the beginners division, and super proud of @triggerscold winning 1st in intermediate and @nikki_deo winning 3rd in ken battle!

    The prizes this year were off the hook! Sweets, krom and kusa really hooked it up! Can't wait for next year's competition!

    I really enjoyed going to the competition. This is the first time I’ve been able to meet other dama players in person, and just be around other people who are passionate about a skill toy. I competed in intermediate, and ken battles. I didn’t win but I don’t mind. If anyone was wondering I was the kid with long hair and the Wyatt champ Model.

    Thanks! Congrats on third in ken battles! We definitely need more events like this in the Dallas/Austin area. Also Which pineapple damas did everyone buy? I got the sweets colab with the shiny emeraldish looking Tama.

    Orange Standard 70/30 and Blue Stripe Standard. The paints are really different from each other so I was curious how they'd play.
