26th Annual Midwest Regional Footbag Championships
...Coinciding with the Chicago Sports Festival
December 18th and 19th, Saturday and Sunday
-10 to 4, both days
-Free to All Spectators!
-Rooms at the Hyatt (not a requirement), usually $300+, only $89ish
    (See details below.)

Come out and shred with us!  
    -Freestyle
    -Four-Square
    -Two-Square

Our primary focus is to reach out to specators!  We need to staff a booth
that is dedicated to the footbag experience.  Our interactive area is called the Kick for
Health Challenge, where kids learn to play footbag, and if we get a cash sponsor, we'll be

able to give away footbags to kids who take the challenge!  We are looking for volunteers
to 
help with teaching the interested spectators how to play footbag.  

This event is free for spectators, but in order to give out a footbag to
each of the spectators that try the sport we are trying to raise money to 
purchase footbags to give away over the weekend.

We are asking a voluntary donation of $10 or more from each player, and if you
know anyone who would like to donate over $100 to go directly to providing
footbags for each participant, we can arrange donations to be tax-deductible through
IFPA.

This year's event takes place at McCormick Place in Chicago (as a part
of "Chicago Sports Festival"), Illinois on December 18-19.  

The Holiday Sports Fest is an event 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 Volleyball, Soccer and 3-on-3 Basketball (and now, Footbag).

With Free Admission and discounted parking for the event, this is a great event
to bring the family to.

I want to thank the generous sponsors who I anticipate will be on board
this year: Freedom Footbags, World Footbag Association and Foot-C Net.  
Regardless of whether they sponsor the event, we are greatful that they have 
shown such consistent support of the sport of footbag over the years, and I 
believe they deserve such recognition.
