Flying Clipper’s roots reach back to the early 1980’s. We got our start selling footbags at disc events such disc golf, disc freestyle and Ultimate disc. We are happy to get involved again with the sport of disc golf by sponsoring the FDGA Ice Bowl coming at you from Bayview Idaho. These stalwart disc golfers are showing their stuff even in the dead of winter. Way to go guys!  Here is a link to check out all the information on this years Ice Bowl:

Good luck to all competitors!

Hats off to Bennett Santora and his juggling skills. He has found new juggle balls to accommodate his style of juggling and we are happy to announce he has chosen our Phat Tyre juggle balls for all of his performances. At only 9 years old we think that will be for a long, long time. Thanks Bennett for your support of the inventors here at Clipperville.

Bill Coad does it again by achieving a new record in the 7 Ball Triplex category using our Dirtbag Classic footbags. We have since sent him a set of our Phat Tyre 14 Light juggle balls to see what else he can accomplish. Congratulations Bill and keep up the good work.

We received a chance to be a part of the IJA (International Jugglers’ Association)  “PROPS 2 U” campaign to send juggling props around the world bringing the great pastime of juggling to new places positively impacting people of differing cultures. Our donation of 15 new Tossaball Hybrid juggle balls will be added to donations from other companies and individuals and will soon arrive in South Korea. We appreciate this opportunity to share what we do here at Flying Clipper with others in the juggling world. Thanks IJA!

This is our fourth year donating to this wonderful cause. What better way to honor Martin Luther King than to offer a free holiday meal for the Eugene Oregon community. Thanks to Becca English-Ross we have been given this opportunity to make a difference in our community. Think globally, act locally is a good axiom and putting footbags and juggle balls into the hands of kids is a positive re-enforcement that we love to share.

Dear Jim Fitzgerald,

Thank you for your very generous contribution of 12 juggle balls and 24 footbags from Flying Clipper to the MLK Education Center.  This letter will serve as your receipt.  Your contributions will help make our 8th Annual Holiday Community Meal a success as we will give away many of them in a free raffle on 12/11 during the event and the remainder will be given to the MLK Culinary youth and students that helped prepare, serve, and clean up after this event for 300 or more. Many youth enjoy kicking “hacky sack”.  Having a footbag in their pocket will provide them a positive, pro-social option to boredom, an opportunity to play, gain skills, and physical fitness.  We really appreciate your long-term support for youth, families and the community!

Respectfully,

Becca English-Ross

Comments: Do you know which kind of beanbags you donated to the Not
Quite Pittsburgh Juggling Festival?  My son loved them but didn’t win
them, despite spending $25 on raffle tickets for them!  Thanks.

Note: We were happy to let them know we currently have a sale on those balls. :-)

Flying Clipper is happy to announce a transfer of props to Voices For Children of Broward County (FL). More than 60 Flying Clipper juggle balls were donated to  help children learn how to juggle and instill in them the confidence of accomplishment. Alan Garber, a Ft Lauderdale CPA and avid juggler, asked us to help and we are glad he did. Thanks Alan for your good work and the opportunity to help.
