IJA CHALLENGE – 5 Sheets of Paper Cascade Endurance

Congratulations to Ferdinand Huber for winning last month’s challenge for the most bounces of a ball on a cup on dramatic fashion, beating all other entrants by a factor of 20!  He went for 11 straight minutes and got over 2500 bounces!  Rarely have I watched a video in disbelief at what I was watching, but this certainly was an incredible thing to watch.  As the winner he will be receiving a full one year IJA Membership and $40 in IJA store credit! Second place goes to IJAentry of youtube with 457 bounces, and she will be receiving $40 in store credit.  Also with impressive results were entrants Mason Joyce with 113, and Will Bond with 85.

Hello, and thanks for coming to the IJA Challenge!
