My Steemit intro... 4-time footbag world champ... disc golf & woodworking

in introduceyourself •  last month

A few months back, I joined Steemit on the recommendation of @geke. My name is Allan and I'm originally from Denmark, now living in Denver, Colorado. Am new to crypto and blockchain tech; my interests include footbag, disc golf, and woodworking.

Back in '93 I won my first World Footbag Championship, then continued to win it for the next three years. Was inducted into the Footbag Hall of Fame in 2002.

I also hold a Guinness World Record for kicking a flaming footbag 156 times consecutively and for many years I toured the world promoting and demonstrating the sport.

In addition to freestyle kicking, the sport also involves footbag net, shown at left.

Started sewing footbags in my early years of kicking because nothing was really available, which led me to designing my own line, HaneDane Footbags. A few were picked up by Wham-O (below). I came up with several unique designs, the largest being a bag of 452 panels and a 3-D bag.

In Breckenridge, Colorado I saw some footbags I designed back in the day
at a shop called YoyoLoco.

Another interest is woodworking. Below are a few game boards and other projects I've created:

Thanks for the upvote for @hanedane, @zanoni. I don't fault you for advertising partiko to new members, but what does stand out in a negative way is how some Steemit users would come to this post to upvote your advertising comment without upvoting the newcomer's actual post, itself. Wow. Making a mental note of that.

That's not my fault, I think they like when newcomers get attention.
Advertising?
Partiko can help especially new users because it's very easy for posting.
When I joined Steemit I would have been very thankful someone give me a tip like Partiko.
Have a nice day
Tom

Who likes it when newcomers get attention? The people upvoting your comment? Because here is a newcomer, hanedane, getting no attention from them at all.

Welcome to the Steem community. Based on the photos, you are a great craftsman. Look forward to seeing more post about hobbies (ultimate frisbee is one of my favorite team games, and I would like to explore disc golf more).

See you around!

Welcome to Steemit hanedane. The official FAQ can be found here and has A LOT of information https://steemit.com/faq.html - Also remember, Steemit is just ONE of the sites built that uses Steem the blockchain. You should also check out DTube and DSound for starters and if you're a gamer, Steem Monsters! There are many other cool apps but I can't list them all here, there's just too many! But I'd also like to mention Steempeak, it's a better blogging platform that has a lot of cool features. Welcome to the blockchain! :) Oh, and if you're interested in creating your own tokens or smart contracts, check Steem engine!

Hi, welcome to steemit. I upvoted your post.
