So Elemental Footbags have kindly donated 2 freestyler mini bags (or whatever they're called :P) to the cause, so in the near future I'm going to offer those as prizes to somebody for doing something! Any ideas? I thought maybe offer one to the person who can break the most number of records in a month, and another to the person who sets the best record in that month for a particular trick. Any thoughts or other ideas?

Big thanks to Lotus! and thanks for asking him :)
I like both of your ideas for rewarding prizes, I have just a couple of modification suggestions:

1. I assume the particular trick will be a pre-announced/featured one, but chosen by...? After the first month, maybe second place for the featured trick can choose? Maybe a predetermined trick list starting with 2-adds and working up? something to think about.

2. One person cannot win both prizes; if you win the "featured trick of the month", you must give up your "most number of records in month" to second place in this category.

i can donate two 14-panel show performance bags for round 2, if round 1 goes well.

I've only ever seen eclipse referred to as a 3 add, never as a 2 add. Eclipse is like a mix between a pendulum and a flying toe. One body add for the jump, one delay add for the mid-air delay, and one body add for bringing the footbag from front to back.

Anyway, here are two new video records:

Eclipse x19.

Yep I agree eclipse is a 3 add, my mistake and fixed. Drifter record also updated - and I actually watched both, so they're verified (other people should feel free to watch videos, check the clenliness and number and post in this topic that they're verified, or change the status themselves - although a good policy would be for people to verify their own records).

@Brian. That's awesome, thanks heaps for your offer of donating a bag! I think it would be fine for one person to win both bags - the goal is to encourage people to push the records as high as possible, not to give away bags :). I guess the first trick will be chosen by me, but I'm very open to suggestions. I like the idea of the winner getting to choose the next trick, although it might be a better idea to keep each round independent, since I'm not sure that this will be regular event. I hope this isn't a presumption suggestion, but if you wanted to run this as a regular event, I'd be happy with that, and you could take over right away, and just give me the address of whoever I should post the bags to :) My main goal with this was that some records are either missing, or the video record is a long way below the actual record, so I'd like to use prizes as a tool for filling the gaps. For example the swirl record was set in the 50s nearly ten years ago (I think there's even a video somewhere, which I vaguely recall watching, but can't find - of Penkse of course), while our record is only 42. I think Vasek's Scorpion's Tail record is nearly 20, (also set nearly 10 years ago), while the record on my list is less than 10. Part of my hopes with this project is that eventually the video records represent actual records.

Super agree. I thought the swirl record 10 years ago was like 68 by Penske? And I know Genz hit 8 matadors back in like 2001. I'm shredding with Gatesman today, so I'll get him to set a reasonable pdx blender record, and see if he can't break the ripstein record too.

Keep in mind Vasek recently hit 14 consecutive ripsteins, but the camera angle was literally at the worst possible angle so I refused to add it. Basically give Evan donuts or something equally good if he can hit 15 or more because I don't want every player from the Russian Footbag Open 2012 reminding me of Vasek's 14...

How about a prize for the person who films and posts the most records to the list? :wink:

I was just going through the list. I've broken many of the records off camera, so maybe I'll try to film them some day. Here's two from 2010:
