Kendama USA

Mark Your Calendars – November 19th – DAMA FEST!!!

DAMA FEST!!!

We can’t begin to tell you how excited we are about Dama Fest!!!  This is the first Kendama event hosted by Kendama USA, and we are working hard to make it one to remember!!

WHERE?  WHEN?

Dama Fest will be held inside the Gallery Room, at the Cobb Galleria Center, on Saturday November 19th, 2011.  This is a great location north of Downtown Atlanta, and easily accessible from Canton, Woodstock, Alpharetta, and of course Atlanta.  It’s at the intersection of I-75 and I-285, and the full address is 2 Galleria Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30339.  It’s also next door to the Cumberland Mall, so your parents can do some holiday shopping while you’re getting your Dama on.  The doors open at 10am, and close at 5pm.  Don’t be late, as you won’t want to miss a moment.

ITS FREE!?!?  NO WAY!!!

YES!  We are so thankful for all the Kendama enthusiasm and support we’ve received, and this is our chance to give something back.  There will be no charge to attend Dama Fest.  Parking?  Also FREE.  You may not want to come empty handed though, because we will have lots of Kendama specials, sales, and some brand new Dama-goodness exclusively at this event.   If you choose to enter the main event, there may be a small entry fee.  We are still working out those details and will update ASAP.

WHAT TO EXPECT

FUN, FUN, and more FUN.  The best Kendama players in the country will be attending, including the entire Kendama USA Pro Team.  More players keep contacting us telling us they bought a plane ticket, or that they are road tripping to Atlanta.  The list keeps growing!  There will be Kendama challenges, games, and giveaways.  Unbelievable raffle prizes.  Great music.  Custom Damas.  Plenty more.  Our main event will be a unique contest hosted by Jake Wiens of the Kengarden, and the infamous Dave Mateo.

 

SUPPORTERS

We are really thankful to those helping to make this event happen.  Kendama is a great tool to bring together a community, and this event is no exception.  Big thanks go to Jake Wiens at the Kengarden, the entire Ozora family, Tyler Marshall at the Kensession Stand, Ryan “OhSnapKid” Purcell, and of course the Kendama USA staff and Team.

If you’re interested in supporting the event, please contact us.  If you have ideas about how to make this great event even better, we want to hear them!!!

 

REGISTRATION

Just show up!  There is no registration required to attend Dama Fest, however it would be a huge help to us if you will RSVP on our Facebook Page if you plan to attend.  You can RSVP on our Facebook page by clicking HERE. If you plan to enter the main event, you will need to register at the event, and we will have more details about this soon.
