The Pro Kicker Impact Footbag was the official flying object for this event

 
   

This is great news that Chicago is back on track to create rocking Kick Volley events again. Cory Current and Scot Hansen opened up a new era in the Illinois Footbag history with the Windy City Cup. The Cup now belongs to Gilles Demers and Jean-François Lemieux from Montreal. They defeated PT Lovern and Yves Archambault in the finals and it was a pretty good match for the first two games then the montrealers finished the job with excellence.

We will have more documentation added to this milestone event over time.
