Disc on the beach [Apr. 14th, 2008|09:19 am]

I spent this weekend playing ultimate at the One Love, One Beach tournament here in town.  That helped me realize a few things:  I love playing ultimate; spirit of the game is a good part of why I love ultimate; I think I might be a better player than I think I am; and sand gets everywhere and sticks there.

I love playing ultimate because at whatever level you play at, you can have as much fun and as much competition as you like.  Spirit of the game is important because it forces a natural balance between competition and fun.  I think I might be a better player than I imagine myself because this weekend several people gave me "awards" for my accomplishments on the field.  And finally, well, the last one explains itself.

Did Nazgul do well? I can't believe it's the third missed tournament! Yarg!

We should get some beach pick up going at some point.

PS. "Forcing a natural balance"? Isn't that a little contradictory?

Do well?! We had a perfect record! Every team was undefeated against us! ;-)

You do realize that there already is a beach pickup game or three, right?

PS. "Forcing a natural balance"? Isn't that a little contradictory?

Uh, yeah, I guess the natural shouldn't be there, and instead should just read "Forcing a balance."

D'oh. I had intended to put a team together for One Love, One Beach this year. Didn't realize it was happening so soon.

I didn't realized you played ultimate. Do you play any pickup around town?

Not regularly, but I'm always up for it.
