This is the first of a new, annual professional footbag event in New York City! Hosted by the New York Footbag Association, this event will take place in beautiful Central Park on Saturday and Sunday, June 28-29, 1997. Sanctioned by the International Footbag Advisory Board, this prize- money event will be attended by professional footbag net and freestyle players from around the U.S. and Canada. First-time and intermediate competitors in all events are welcome to compete (see all the information below) or just come and kick it on the sidelines! This is a must-see event in NYC!
Event Details:
The freestyle site is located in, and in front of the Bandshell, next to 
Summerstage, at about 68th Street.  The nets will be set up on either
