Footbag Scavenger Hunt – Open Level

As part of the 2020 Joulukalenteri, there is something a little different. A set of challenges created in the style of a Scavenger Hunt. There are three levels – Open, Intermediate and Recreational. See how many points you can get!

The challenge is supported by players Mike Toolan and Dante Diotallevi. You can see the content shared on The Paradox Symposium Instagram page below. The due date is January 15. You can submit entries with a Youtube video.
