This event will feature a full range of Footbag Net events. Singles and Doubles, Open and Intermediates, Men and Women (if there is enough interest.)
Well, we've got another Windy City Cup under our belts, and I'd have to say we outdid ourselves from last year. What a great weekend we had! Before I get any further, I want to thank everyone that came out to compete, and I want to express a HUGE thanks to the local crew, especially Tom Whitworth, Zeke Ibardaloza, and Matt Sweeny. We could have never done it with out you guys!! Navy Pier was gracious enough to host our event again this year. We moved our finals court to the North side of the front circle, where we saw an unbelievable amount of foot traffic. This was by far the best tournament I've ever had the pleasure of being involved with. Excellent work by the entire CLCK crew!! Here's the results... Singles 1. Jeremy Mirken 2. Cory Current 3. Walt Houston 4. Ben Alston 5. Tom Whitworth 6. Zeke Ibardaloza 7. Sam Gregory 8. Jack Harris (s) 9. Jake DeClercq 10. Scot Hansen 11. Josh DeClercq Doubles 1. PT Lovern and Manu Bouchard 2. Jeremy Mirken and Jack Harris 3. Walt Houston and Ben Alston 4. Cory Current and Scot Hansen 5. Tom Whitworth and Zeke Ibardaloza 6. Josh DeClercq and Jake DeClercq 7. Sam Gregory and Bryan Nelson (s) Congrats to PT and Manu- the new Windy City Cup Champions! Thanks again to all that made the trip, to Navy Pier for hosting us, and to our sponsors: Fancy Footworks, ProKicker Footbags, The Store til 4, Communications Direct, and Chicago Scenic Studios, who once again provided the most bad ass labor crew and bleacher set-up ever seen at a footbag event. Oh, and one more time for Zeke, Tommy, and Fatty Matty- you guys rock!
Once again, CLCK will be bringing Footbag Net to the Masses! Prelims will be held Friday and Saturday at Union Park (at the corner of Ashland and Lake St on the near-west side of the city), and our finals will take center stage at the biggest summer tourist attraction Chicago has to offer, Navy Pier. Our finals site will feature stadium-style seating, free food and drink for our competitors, and some of the best freestyle demos and high-quality net matches ever seen. Don't miss it!!
