I have been playing footbag, aka Hacky Sack, since 1980.
I first saw the Net game in 1982, and after I went to Berkeley
for graduate school (PhD, Computer Science) I started to go to tournaments.
I met my wife playing footbag, and she grew into the best overall woman
Footbag Net player.
Mixed Doubles Net (9): 1989, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997, 2010, 2011 7 with Jody.
Open One-Pass Consecutives: World Record 10,454 in 1987 with Bill Langbehn. That record was eventually broken by Andy Linder and Ted Martin.
I appeared in the Open Doubles Net finals match with Jim Caveney in 1991, and with Alf Marcussen in 1995. We lost.
I competed at the World Champsionships 20 years in a row from 1984 to 2003, traveling to Golden Colorado, Portland, Montreal, Vancouver, Chicago, and Prague. We hosted the Worlds in San Francisco in 1994, 1995, 2001, 2002, and 2010.
