Welcome to the IFPA Newsletter for October, 2020.

It's the spooky season with Halloween coming up. Derek Littlefield has organised a great competition, the Spooky Shred Off. This follows on from the "Shred Off" event introduced at the World Footbag Championships. The pandemic situation across the world has meant only a few events have been able to happen, however lots of photos and videos around the world show there is plenty of footbag action happening.

There are some national championships coming up, with some countries choosing to go online and other areas able to have small events.
