Footbag Worlds 2006

It was serendipitous that all the members of the "Columbia Footbag Crew" could make it to the 2006 World Footbag Championships this year, especially since it was in Frankfurt. It worked out because we're living in Austria, Xander is in Göttingen Germany for a 1-month math program, and Matt is travelling around Europe after a semester abroad in Prague. The boys got to kick together after a long break, and we got to see some of the best players in the world perform.

The "circle competition" was a big success. Click here for a video clip (30MB).

Click here for a video of the world champion, Vašek Klouda. (be patient, it's 50Mb in size, so you may do better downloading it and then watching.)
Jordan Moir from Canada won the shred-30. I didn't know it at the time, but he is from the same town, Dundas, where my dad grew up and my aunt & grandmother still live! Here is a video of his shred-30 win (14MB).
Vašek was 3rd in the shred-30. Watch here (11MB).
