Flimsee has popped up in a lot of cities lately, but I think our favorite place to see people playing is Cincinnati. Disc sports are not something people are used to in a backyard, so introducing Flimsee at Bone’s Buckeye tailgate last fall ended up being a great time.
Cincinnati is the home of Cornhole and to these folks, yard games are no joke. They have a very competitive nature when it comes to games and in my personal experience have quite some talent down there. We have now had Flimsee out at some Bengals games, Reds games, and plenty of backyard barbeques, but I think our favorite time was the Phish concert when we dropped down the Flimsee Box.
We got some pretty good amateur video at each of these parties and we hope you enjoy the action.
Also, next time you are in Cincinnati, be sure to check out some of their great disc golf courses that are popping up around town.
