Ultimate Frisbee seems to be starting slowly, not unlike a car that’s struggling to turn over, it’s almost there but not quite. We missed the first couple of games because we didn’t even know it had started, and then when we were ready to go, it rained cats and dogs. We finally made it to one game and it was fun, though the turnout was small. We had a blast, nonetheless, and were all set for the season to kick in when we got socked with bad weather the next week. Hopefully things will work out this week.
There are grumblings about a change in format, and I have to confess, I’m not so keen on it all, but I understand on some level. They are thinking of breaking up the games into beginners and more experienced players. The beginners would play in the first hour, and then the pros would come on in the second hour. I realize that people like myself can be a liability out there, and the guys who are really good want to go off, but it seems a little tricky to tell little kids that they’re time is done because they’re not good enough. I’m not so into it, and would be inclined to leave after the first hour if they implement it. We’ll see where this one goes.
Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to anotherview for the pic.
