The ultimate tournament did not work out well.
I think that it needed to be closer the the quad, and better coached. It was fun, but if it were closer and better monitored, it would have worked out better.
jazzy, you did amazingly putting this together, but either way it didn't go as planned.
Anyway, hope it becomes a tradition so I can practice.

Haha, since we had a game scheduled at 12:30, we had no idea how long the pizza lunch on friday would take, so we waited in like a bit, then at noon we ran with 15 pound backpacks from the pizza area all the way to the terrace field, which took a long time and tired us out. So, I'm just going to blame our loss on that =P

It was fun overall though,

We ran with full luggage from Waterville, Maine to Champaign, Illinois, calm down.

wow....I just found out today F-M never actually showed up...something about the coach didn't really give approval to sign up/didn't know and strongly discouraged them from participating do they could study. I'm not sure if Centerville showed up, but if they did.....Centerville is the national champs and F-M gets 10th >.> :| :| :?

Centerville was one of the first teams to show up and stayed the longest of all the teams that did show up. They were respectable and played Ultimate well, not to mention still did very well at the actual competition.
Call me coach.

Well, jazzy, well done. I could never have organized this. Will you have someone continue it for next year....... I will if you want. Just let us know, because it is worthy to be a SciO tradition.

Thank you for setting that up jazzy, although Riverwood only played one game against a different team being out there caused us to play a parents students game that was a lot of fun.

Oh, I'm late, but I still want to post.

I really hope it becomes a tradition, too! We were planning on coaching some kids next year in the fall before we all start stressing out over Regionals. xD

I'm coaching a new team in North Dakota next year. If by some miracle we get enough people in the first year, and then by another miracle win the state, I'll organize again. If not, I'd be more than happy to pass on the torch.

Waterville is more than happy to receive that torch Gantz. Christ, I've dreamed of that moment my whole life. It'd be a bigger moment than holding up the "Matt Gantz Memorial Trophy" after winning the "Matt Gantz Annual Ultimate Tourny"
