What the heck! In what’s probably gonna end up being a prank, the Cegep of Old Montreal where the Montreal Footbag Net club practices was closed today. A teenager was arrested after he participated in a chat room and threats were made that a shootout would

Finally, the spring

04/20/08 | by yevez | Categories: Footbag, Life of pleasures, Sports and Games

The sun finally gets stonger and the skirts are among us. As the weather curve raises the dresses and sleeves shorten. Montreal shows a smiling face again and it’s even better after such a rough winter.

That also means that we’ll set the nets up and kick footbag outside again. I’ll have to raise my beat to 3-4 practices a week soon in preparation for the Green Cup, California’s best tournament.

How hard is it to have to be outdoors to kick a netbag with friends, cruel life :> I guess I’ll have to be a Footbag slave again. Whoopi!

Footbag, Takraw, Peteca inexpensive ways to make kids move.

04/01/08 | by yevez | Categories: Footbag, Life of pleasures, Sports and Games

This is the trilogy that I’ve been working on for a while. Footbag of course came in first. I started it in Quebec in 1981. I toured to demonstrate Takraw in the US in 1990. My partner Lisa McDaniel and I went to over 200 schools located in 10 different states. For those who wouldn’t know Footbag is what is usually called “Hacky Sack” which is of course a popular brand name. Takraw is the national sport in Thailand. It’s a mix of Volleyball and Soccer played on a badminton court. Confusing? Let’s just say that the best players are
