My name is Tom Cunningham, known on the boards as oldyoyoguy. I started yo-yoing as a kid back in the 1960s, and probably lost interest after the Duncan bust around the middle of that decade. I got interested in yo-yoing again at the peak of the boom in the 1990s and, like everyone else, was amazed at the depth and breadth the activity had attained. I have been a member of the AYYA since 2003 and published the online AYYA Yo-Yo of the Month feature from December 2003 through May of 2006. I am by no means an accomplished player, but I enjoy throwing and like investigating the technical and aesthetic side of yo-yoing. I am mainly a collector, with a fairly shallow but diverse collection of yo-yos ranging from a 1928 Flores to contemporary metals.
