2021 Footbag Events

Post by boyle » 22 Dec 2020 01:23

Thought it might be nice to have an ongoing thread of upcoming events (online, real life, major, minor, whatever). Could be good to also post quick updates if things get date changes, move locations etc.

The NYJ will be held online. Due date Jan 8. The Footbag Scavenger Hunt is due Jan 15

Jan 8 - NYJ (online) - Shred Off, Rippin Run, Add Hunt
Jan 15 - Footbag Scavenger Hunt (Part of Joulu 2020)
March (TBA) - Swiss Footbag Open (Lausanne) - http://footbag.org/events/show/1565425638
TBA - Euros - Poland. I believe they have been postponed to next year. https://www.facebook.com/events/8634027 ... discussion
???? - Worlds. (Hard to say at this stage)

Feel free to add further information and we can get some more detail in the original post.

Great idea Dan. I imagine a lot of events will be moving targets as the world continues to navigate COVID.

Absolutely - I've been seeing that with concerts and things here too, they'll get announced, then all of a sudden they've got a new date in November or so. Will be good to try and keep on top of things.

There's not really much chance for a real life gathering - it's interesting in seeing how the Australian Open tennis is looking - they are bringing Covid cases into an area that is close to Covid free, a lot of tennis player comments are not going down well, particularly because there are thousands of people around the world who are Australian citizens who are not allowed to come back.

But yes, online Worlds is the most likely scenario and I would say that is close to certain.

If I am not mistaken, there is no bid now, no way it will happen in Medellin this summer otherwise

Yeah, if there's no bid currently (end of January) I'd be shocked if anybody could pull off the logistics of securing an in-person venue in time for a summer or even fall event. To say nothing of the uncertainty of what countries will be vaccinated or permitted to travel by then. Online Worlds two years in a row isn't ideal for the community, but for sure better than the alternative (no Worlds at all). Hopefully this ends up just being a blip in the history of footbag, a weird aberration footnote. At least this year we have more experience with this kind of event, both from the organizers and the players' standpoint.

I don't mind online format as it gives every player the chance to compete since no travel fee!

IFPA newsletter came out today, basically making it official:



Not surprising news, but nice to have it be semi-official now.

I think it's the only way to go, and I really look forward to it. It will interesting to see if there is a difference in participation - people are in different stages of lockdown etc. I'm hoping and have suggested for me to run, some more basic events (kicking and whatnot)
