On 6th and 7th September 2014 we went went to our inaugural outdoor tournament at the foot of the Tor monument in Glastonbury.
The scene as we arrived was of 6 simultanious games of ultimate, under a sunny sky on lush green grass. If there was a UK Ultimate Mecca, this was it.
Saturday was tough. We tried our best, but lost our first game to Kent - a friendly but well resourced team - they had well over 20 players. Stand out moment for me was when Irish Dave was given a new nickname by Kent.... "The Beast" - namely for his huge defence moves.
Second game we had much more disc time and got some points on the board, thanks to Liam :-) We played our signature call (mini-game after the Ultimate match has finished) - Angry Boars!
Third game of Saturday Jim managed to join us and we started linking up some plays and scored 3!
Saturday night was really fun - mainly invoving a long game of Flip Cup e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hpi1aVZxucI
Sunday morning was a little hazy for me (too much flip cup the night before)... but I do remember we won the first game. oh yeah! Having Rich was a big help - he just gets everywhere!
Second and third games we became relaxed and truly enjoyed just playing our game. We really gelled as a team on and off the pitch.
Roll on Glastonbury 2015
