This is a time-structured event with 15-minute footbag demonstrations running on the hour and an
interactive area where kids learn to play footbag.

We are looking for volunteers to help with teaching the interested spectators how to play footbag,
and how to play foot-c net. We would like our expert players to prepare a 15-minute footbag demo
that they will perform on our stage as a part of the event.

This event is free and we are not pursuing sponsors this year, but in order to give out a footbag to
each of the spectators that try the sport we are trying to raise $500 to purchase 2000 footbags to
give away over the weekend. We are asking a voluntary donation of $10 or more from each player,
and if you know anyone who would like to donate over $100 to go directly to providing footbags for
each participant, we can arrange donations to be tax-deductible.

This year's event takes place at McCormick Place in Chicago (as a part of
"Holiday Sports Festival"), Illinois on December 27-29.

We are also running a fun event on Wednesday called "All Shred" that will ensure that all entrants get
to shred with all of our top professionals, including many BAP members. We will have "organized
shred circles" with 1 pro per circle and a rotation schedule, with loud music and fun for all.

The Holiday Sports Fest is an event designed to introduce all kinds of sports to the general public,
and each sport has an interactive area where kids can try them out. Some sports also have major
tournaments going on, such as Volleyball, Soccer and 3-on-3 Basketball (and now, Footbag). With
Free Parking and Free Admission to the event, this is a great event to bring the family to.

I want to thank the generous sponsors who I anticipate will be on board this year: Freedom Footbags
and Foot-C Net. Regardless of whether they sponsor the event, we are greatful that they have shown
such consistent support of the sport of footbag over the years, and I believe they deserve such
