Favourite VotWs of 2005
« on: May 04, 2007, 01:31:11 pm »
Hello everybody. As you know, there's a VotW competition going on this year, and the winner gets a free Diabolo.ca t-shirt! After some discussion and clever thinking in the announcement thread, I decided to hold a 2005 and 2006 competition as well. The winners of this competition will get a personal title (like Donator, VotW Contributor, etc) below their name saying "VotW 2005 Champion" (or something similar)

What I need from you is your 5 favourite VotWs in no particular order of the year 2005. This competition will stay open untill the end of this month, so your votes need to be in before the 1st of June! Whoever gets the most votes wins.

Post your favourites in this thread and please do it like this: (the topic links can be found in the youtube video's description)

OK, I've had a go at this. It's really really hard! I had a list of about 15 I'd like to vote for... and really there aren't any that are easy to throw away.

Maybe I'll suggest a few things to consider while choosing:
-keep in mind the goals of the video of the week - to introduce original and creative diabolo tricks to the diabolo community
-a trick doesn't have to be difficult to be an excellent votw - perhaps the more people that can learn from it the better
-think of tricks that have revolutionized the repertoire of tricks practiced today... or pick however you'd like!

20 february 2005, Arjan - http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=376.0   (probably my #1 vote - a creative move, expanded upon by many since then, not too difficult but still challenging and visually pleasing)
29 may 2005, John - http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=665.0   (I'm a sucker for s-fans...)
20 march 2005, Dave P - http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=319.0  (...and brilliant s-fan like combos)
18 december 2005, Priam - http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=1257.0  (the trick that changed what all the 6 year old kids who just learned 3 diabolos work on! ;) )

4. The best passers around- IMO
5. So cheesey, silly, creative and random- Love it :)

That took a while..

Yeah that's a great trick, he's always pushing the boundaries!

I'd have voted for Barnesy's Mini-G but meh :P
