Bringing Footbag Net in front of huge crowds @ Navy Pier: Priceless!
The only thing missing, is YOU!!!!!
The Net players of the greater Chicago-Land area are proud to remind and invite YOU to the "The 2008 Windy City Cup" Net Footbag Championships, to be held June 14-15th in the beautiful city of Chicago, IL. (Friday, June 13th pickup game day @ Prelim site)
We are very honored to team up with the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority, who will host our finals site (Sunday, June 15th) at Navy Pier, the premiere tourist attraction in Chicago. Navy Pier boasts over 1,000,000 visitors EVERY weekend in the Chicago summer, and every one of those visitors will walk directly past our finals site @ the entrance to Navy Pier. (Some of you may recall that the Freestyle Finals for the 1999 World Footbag Championships were held on Skyline Stage @ Navy Pier. Our Finals Net court this year will be right @ the Front (and only) entrance of the Pier.)
Bleacher style seating will surround our finals court with seating of around 200+ spectators, and we expect HUGE crowds all day long (Father's day weekend is a busy weekend @ Navy Pier). Our site is situated @ the only entrance of Navy Pier, and the sheer volume of expected foot traffic should place this tournament in an area of unheard of promotion for our sport. (In other words, if you want to showcase your skills in front of large crowds, this tournament will exceed the standards proposed in this forum.)
Our event will feature competition for all levels; amateur, professional, and women net events will be offered. We are IFPA sanctioned, and this will be a Prize Money Event.
As mentioned above, we have multiple past and present World Champions confirmed & competing @ the Windy City Cup. Emmanuel Bouchard, PT Lovern, John Leys, & Ken Hamric. Other confirmed attendees include Jack Harris, Jeremy Mirken, Memphis (Ben & Walt), Nashville (Elliot), New York (Josh Penney), & more! Plus, local favorites Cory Current, Scot Hansen, Ted Martin, Tom Whitworth, Zeke Ibardaloza, and the triumphant return of Mike Bellman.
On the 'Maybe' list, we have several folks waiting to commit.....
Yves Archambault, Gilles Demers, Luc Legault, Patti Schrickel, Randy Mulder, Ken Shults, Jim Derricot, and more.....
Plan your vacation time and buy your airfare now! (Roundtrip from the Bay area is still around $350 on Southwest)
You may never have the chance to play in front of this many people again in your life!!
