Footbag, a new team is born for the Montreal Windchill

11/08/08 | by yevez | Categories: Footbag

After countless rumors it is now official the 2009 Montreal Windchill will see a new (old) team rise. Gilles Demers and Luc Legault offered this blog the exclusivity of the news on thursday night after practice, they will be back together for yet another try at this launching of the season event. They won the Funtastik Summer classic and now they’ll try to win a Montreal Kick Volley tournament.

The “Brutes” will have another chance at succeeding in the Montreal uneasy climate after they made the Finals at the 2006 Summer champs.

Some other rumors are flying out these days. François Depatie-Pelletier (recent winner of the French Open Doubles with Flo Goetze) would play with Emmanuel Bouchard, this is still to be confirmed. The M & M’s could also be a come back team if the time table is suitable for busy father Martin Graton, the other M is of course Martin Côté.

Confirmed teams include Dominic O’Brien and Yves Archambault, we still have to see about the girls team of Geneviève Bousquet and Maude Landreville. We also do hope to see Benjamin Rochon and JF Lemieux team up for this. Stay tuned for more news in the coming weeks.

World Footbag Championships: Montreal back on top

Strangely the Footbag net competition at the 2008 Prague World Footbag Championships brought the same doubles finals than the finals of the Pro Kicker Montreal Championships held 3 weeks before. So if you want to win Worlds you have to make it here.:> This tournament is sometimes harder to win than Worlds.

Congratulations to all the winners and finalists at Worlds and to every one who’s happy with their experience, Footbag rocks.

Complete results for the 2008 Green Cup, Footbag net tournament.

06/25/08 | by yevez | Categories: Footbag, Life of pleasures, Sports and Games

You can find complete results forThe 2008 Green Cup on Pro Kicker as well as a big set of pictures, some taken by Cory current, some by Yves Archambault.

This tournament was epic. The finals offered a good battle between the German World title holders Florian Goetze and Patrick Schrickel who prevailed over PT Lovern and Manu Bouchard.

Many other interesting matches happened at the Green Cup, including my teammate Martin Côté nearly defeating Florian in one of the singles semi-finals.

Mr Goetze emerged as the new Footbag superstar in this contest harvesting the singles, doubles and mixed doubles titles. That’s one more than what he accomplished at World Footbag Championships where he was second in singles. The king is dead…Long live the king!

First results for the Green Cup

05/25/08 | by yevez | Categories: Footbag, Life of pleasures, Sports and Games

The first day of the competition at the Green Cup started with singles Net. As it is more and more common to see at tournaments the singles part was a single elimination bracket. You loose a match you’re out. We played all the way to the semi-finals and there was one very noticeable upset: Martin Cote from Montreal beat John Leys who was seeded number 2. The semi-finals will feature Martin versus Florian Goetze as well as Yves Archambault vs 10 times World Champion Emmanuel Bouchard.

We then started the doubles competition and this part went pretty much as planned as the top 8 teams kept their seeds in a pool format. At this point there are 14 teams left and tomorrow we will play that through to the semi-finals. The top teams are: Florian Goetze and Partick Schrickel who are the current World Champions, Eric Wulff and John Leys who are the defending Green Cup Champions and seeded third the team of PT Lovern and Manu Bouchard. A Wild card team would be Kenny Shults and Randy Mulder. They are the guests of honor at the Green Cup this year (with Martin Cote) Kenny and Randy used to dominate Footbag net doubles in the early 90’s and they reunited especially for this tournament. Although these guys don’t practice much anymore they are to be taken seriously just for the sheer amount of talent that they bring to the game.

Taking off for the Green Cup

05/15/08 | by yevez | Categories: Footbag, Life of pleasures, Sports and Games

I’m leaving in a few hours for California and the Green Cup. The GC is one of the most important Footbag Net tournaments. It is held by the Chaos club of Oakland and most importantly it will be the leader’s marriage. PT Lovern is the heart and soul of Chaos, can’t wait for the event and the party that will follow, it should be something.

Then I’m gonna follow the Bay to Breakers race on sunday morning. On monday the 19th I’m gonna retreat to Yosemite with a good friend of mine. It’s part of getting ready for competition. We’re gonna hike and basically empty ourselves from the city stress and let the nature fill us with power… On thursday we come back to the city for a last practice before the tournament. The event starts on saturday in Oakland where it’s gonna be for 2 days. Then on monday it’s semis and finals day. We all wish to be there, but it’s gonna be very strong this year and I can smell a few upsets already. Pro Kicker is gonna be a sponsor of the event and the Impact Footbag will be the official bag of the tournament.
