That's right folks! The city of Chicago now hosts not one but TWO annual footbag net tournaments. The Chicago Lake Coast Kickers are proud to announce the 2008 Second City Cup to be held at Union Park in Chicago on September 20- 21. The Second City Cup is a no-frills net tournament. We are not getting park permits or event insurance. We're doing the whole tournament at our prelims site, and there will be no banners, no bleachers, no PA system, no "special" finals court, no entry fees or prize money, and no big promotions. It will have great people, great players, and a great atmosphere for fun and friendly competition. (And it's sanctioned by the IFPA!) We will run a single elimination bracket for singles net, and we will most likely do a "King of the Court" format for doubles net. Our other event, The Windy City Cup, requires hours and hours of planning and is designed to increase exposure to the public. But the Second City Cup is strictly for the players. It promises to be a stress-free weekend of great footbag net action. Can't wait to see you there! (If you are not from the area but are interested in coming out, give me a call or drop me an email and I'll find you a place to stay while you're in town.)
