This is a Sole Purpose Footbag Club of Portland update on the Heart of Footbag Freestyle Tournament on Sat/Sun February 18, 19, 1995. The events will be Women's & Open Singles and Team Freestyle and Mixed Doubles Freestyle. Entry fee is $40.00. I am working with the American Heart Association to raise corporate sponsors (the prize money goal is $1,500). The the freestyle competition will be directed by Kenny. The plan is to judge the subjective portion of the freestyle routines while they are performed, and the objective part of the routine by video review with the competitor(s). Sole Purpose Members would be happy to provide sleeping accommodations (really, I can vouch for them). The Riverside Inn is the host hotel and has rooms w/two double beds for a flat rate of $60.00. Call me to set up lodging (503) 236-0939. We are raising per kick pledges from corporate and individual sponsors for Kenny and Tricia's world record breaking attempts in 5-minute timed consecutives. Considering how much this sport makes your heart pound I think the American Heart Association is an appropriate side kick. Tricia and Constance have decided it is way past time to raise the ante for the women's doubles consecutive record (21,025 set on 7/31/86). Their doubles record attempt will happen Sun. 2/19/95 morning. Hope to kick with you all soon. Kendall KIC
