Weekly Review 6/20/2010

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.

Thanks to all who came! See you on 6/27 🙂

  1. The Maine Games (www.mainegames.org) would like invite your group to consider helping us host the 2011 Maine Games State Ultimate Frisbee Championships on Saturday, June 25, or Sunday, June 26 at your venue.

    The Maine Games will be holding other events in the mid-coast region on that weekend including; The Maine Games State Cross Country/5k Championship (Waldoboro); the Maine Games’ Medomak Mile (Waldoboro); the Maine Games 2011 Javelin Jamboree featuring two-time Olympian and two-time World record holder, Tom Petranoff (Waldoboro); and the Maine Games State Candlepin Bowling Championships (Waldoboro).

    I was in Waldoboro last week and picked up a copy of the Summer Activities Guide, and saw the feature about Ultimate. I would love to see if someone from your group would be interested in becoming the commissioner for an event hosted by your club.

    Please contact me: Jeff Scully (jeff@mainegames.org) or at 207-807-5959 to discuss this opportunity.

    The Maine Games is a non-profit organization with the mission of providing all Mainers with the opportunity to compete on a statewide stage, to practice good sportsmanship, and to develop healthy habits that can last a lifetime. The Maine Games is a member of the National Congress of State Games (www.stategames.org), which is part of the United States Olympic Committee’s Multi-Sport Organizations Council. More than 30 State Games around the country offer 130+ diffrent events including Ultimate.

  2. Hi Jeff,
