Boys Life, Yomega, and BSA Seek To Break Yo-Yo Guinness Record

Posted on 26 July 2010 by admin


Yo-Yo til’ you drop! On Thursday, July 29th, 5,000 of the more than 37,000 Scouts attending the 2010 National Boy Scouts of America Jamboree at Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia, will attempt to break the long standing Guinness World Record™ for most people yo-yoing simultaneously. Published by the BSA, Boys’ Life Magazine is responsible for coordinating the event, in conjunction with Yomega.

All of our Scouts who help break the record will receive their own custom made Yomega yo-yo, and receive fun demonstrations from world famous yo-yo personality, Ooch (Brett Outchcunis)!

In order to ensure that the record is broken, Guinness World Records TM has administered several guidelines to be met. Included are video footage, a notary, a witness, and also a click-to-count system. The previous record held is 662 people.
