Footbag Players Prepare for US Open in Erie
Players from around North America are making preparations for the US Open. It will be held from June 9-11.
With the World Footbag Championships being held in July in Medellin, Colombia, the US Open will be the major footbag event in North America this year. The Erie region is no stranger to footbag tournaments, with events such as Funtastiks and East Coast Championships taking place in the area.
