    Arrow Ups & Downs of Bad Economy - Bad Omen for Coachella Valley

    Annual yo-yo event canceled

    Colin Atagi • The Desert Sun • January 28, 2009

    An annual yo-yo competition that brought people from around California and Arizona to the Coachella Valley will not be taking place this year.

    The 2009 Yo-Yo Championships of Southern California, which was scheduled to take place Saturday at The River in Rancho Mirage, was canceled because of budget cuts, organizers said.

    It cost about $7,500 to organize the event, which attracted more than 60 participants last year, Desert Recreation District Assistant General Manager Kevin Kalman said.

    Officials are “Making sure we’re saving for essential services and services we’re mandated to provide,” he said.
