It’s true! DamFast won the Get the Led Out 2011 Ultimate frisbee tournament in Cumberland, Maine this past weekend. It was a fantastic event, lovely weather, healthy players, and wonderful day of games.
I’m going to open up this site to any DamFast, 52pickup, and Belfast ultimate members who want to contribute photos, blogs, whatever. All you need to do is register. After I get your registration request, I add permissions to your account so you can post photos and blog entries.
In the meantime, here are some photos from GTLO, courtesy Jason:
In anticipation of our upcoming tournament, I’m uploading a draft of the team T. The idea came from Bruce M. and the intrepid Perry. I’ve taken a very simple approach in order to keep costs down (shading and multiple colors all increase costs).
Please take a look and post comments to let me know your thoughts.
Nothing beats ultimate frisbee on father’s day. Despite the forecast for rain a number of hardy souls made it to GSB for the 3pm game. A number of complete beginners arrived. I love sharing the sport with newbies and I think they all had fun. Around 4pm the lightning started, first off in the distance, and then closing in. I can’t be sure but it felt like we were in the eye of the storm for a while before it hit us in full. After a short discussion we put the game on hold while we ran to the cars to avoid getting struck by the now much closer lightning. By 4:30 the rain had mostly passed and we resumed the game for another 45 minutes.
I sprained my ankle last week while running in the Hart estate with Mike. It didn’t feel like much at the time, but it swelled significantly afterwards. My personal physician and wife, Dr Anne Jacobs, recommended that I give it rest for a week, which meant that I missed one of the few sunny Sundays in weeks. Next week I’ll be away for a wedding, so it looks like the next chance I’ll have will be 8/23. Have fun in my absence!
