This just came through our email feed and we thought we’d share it. This is an official announcement copied from the IFPA Emailing List. We don’t claim to hold this as original content, just sharing it for the benefit of the footbag community at large
On behalf of the International Footbag Players’ Association, I’d like to announce that we collect bids for hosting World Footbag Championships in 2013 and in 2014.
If you are interested in organizing such an event in your city, please contact the Worlds Operating Committee at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
WOC is an IFPA body, responsible for running Worlds every year.
The host club plays the role of a Tournament Producer, working to secure venues and local arrangements, while WOC controls the sport aspect of the tournament (scheduling, judging, results, etc.).
The deadline for bids for 2013 is on October 1st, 2012 (just over one month from today).
Once all bids are received, WOC will choose the best possible option.
Please understand that evaluating bids Worlds is a very time-consuming process, involving frequent back-and-forth discussions between WOC and the bidding parties, and is thus very intensive for all involved. For that reason, we ask that you only plan to bid if you are serious and have a compelling proposal.
The application itself is an interactive process, so please start by letting us know that you want to bid, and we will take it from there.
Please feel free to ask me about any details, or just e-mail WOC directly to continue the discussion. Please do not reply directly to this post, please create a new thread in your e-mail with a descriptive subject line that includes the proposed host city in the title. This will help me the rest of the volunteers on WOC keep all the discussions clear.
