Oh, they were all great! Hope someone will put up some video.
The fellow who did the best did one saber, then two sabers, and then held the two together (no connector) and did the Darth Maul deal.
He WOWed everyone including the judges.
Then the kids competed... one little blond cherub was dressed as Anakin and he was only a few inches taller than the saber and was terrific! (They used the UltraSabers stunt sabers.... very lightweight... surprisingly so.)
But Jarren Landcaster's son won for the kids... he was a natural, and I'm sure it was from constant practice with his dad.
I do hope someone will put up some video... HINT HINT!
