DisKapital Ultimate Frisbee Tournament

I played in my first ultimate frisbee 'hat' tournament, DisKapital, on Jan 2-3. It was held at Downer playing fields, which were perfect (not too soft, not too hard) after the rain over Christmas. A hat tournament is one where teams are constructed randomly, ie. drawn out of a hat, with a bit of balancing to make sure one team doesn't end up with all the best players.

I had an awesome time, played zone defence for the first time, and hopefully improved my throwing and other skills. I produced some impressive blisters and was seriously sore after a full weekend of running around. Checkpoint Charlie (the theme was Berlin Wall) took out the title after narrowly (on a golden point) beating my team Achtung Baby in the final.

Great fun. Just wish I had taken some photos...
