The Bay Area Classic is second only to the U.S. National Yo-yo Contest in terms of prestige and competition, though some players actually focus as much emphasis on winning the BAC as Nationals or even the World Yo-Yo Contest.
California has produced some of the greatest modern yo-yo players in the world, and the BAC is the one contest each year they are all guaranteed to attend.
