The End of Ultimate?

It’s looking like UF is done for the year, and I think it’s been a pretty poor year. Not that many people showed up, and while we were away, I get a sense that JM showed up to paltry, if any, crowds. I understand his frustration, it takes a lot to bring all the stuff over and take the lead in promoting the game, and when nobody shows up, that’s not only disheartening, but discouraging.

We showed up this past weekend and we were the only ones there until our friend EM showed up with two of his kids. We played a small game of 3 on 3, and then did the Family Feud match, and it was fun, but you got the sense that UF was winding down. I saw B at the market and inquired, and she said JM felt like the season was done. She mentioned he had come to several UF days and nobody showed up, so he decided it was done, or at least he was done. I can’t say I blame him, though it’s sad because last year we went out with a bang and nobody wanted to see it end. Times have changed.

Maybe it’s not a bad thing, because now we can focus on hockey, which is right around the corner.

Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to Eccentric Photography for the pic.
