Manually Entered Results

The freestyle portion of the event was a huge success!  We had a great sound system courtesy of 
Communications Direct.  Our "Clif Bar / Quizno's Footbag Challenge" was also a huge success, 
giving out almost 700 Clif Bars and Quizno's Coupons to over 400 participants, the great majority 
of which we were introducing the sport to for the first time.  Additionally we gave out over 55 
footbags, courtesy of WorldFootbag.com and FreedomFootbags.com.  We had a great time playing 
Foot-C Net over the weekend too!  Unfortunately, we did not have enough floor space to support 
the planned net portion of the event.  When we arrived, the net floor wasn't set-up as planned, so 
the net players went outside to play and then failed to show up on Sunday and Monday to 
demonstrate the net game, even though we had to beg and plead to get them an indoor floor.  

On Saturday we ran a free Novice competition to encourage new players to compete by offering our 
"Circle Jamz" freestyle competition and Footbag Consecutives competition.  I have included the 
Novice results at the bottom of this list.  The Open and Intermediate competitions ran on Saturday 
and Sunday, we all had a blast!  Oh, and we finished on time each day!!!!

We are going to have an interactive site at the "Holiday Sports Fest" and we are looking
people to help us to run the "instructional" part of the event.  We are still looking for
helpers. By 
helping, you won't be subjecting yourself to full days of tyrannical work schedules,
rather you 
will be a part of a team of people who will be presenting our sport to the children of the
City of 
Chicago, in shifts, from Noon to 5 on Sunday and Monday.  We are running a "Clif Bar
Challenge" where we invite kids to first sign a waiver, then try kicking a footbag.  If
they get 25 
kicks in a row, they win a footbag but they get a Clif Bar just for trying, while supplies

We are also running a fun event on Monday ("All Shred") that will ensure that all entrants
get to 
shred with all of our top professionals, including many BAP members.  We will have
shred circles" with 1 pro per circle and a rotation schedule, with loud music and fun for

The larger event we are a part of, "Mayors Holiday Sports Festival" is designed to 
introduce all kinds of sports to the general public, and each sport has an interactive
area where 
kids can try them out.  Some sports also have major tournaments going on, such as
Soccer and 3-on-3 Basketball (and now, Footbag).  With Free Parking and Free Admission to
event, this is a great event to bring the family to.

The Second Annual U.S. Open Footbag Freestyle Championships (IFPA
Sanctioned) has been retitled as the 19th Annual Midwest Regional Championships and 
Exhibition because I was unable to run both events this year.
