Frisbee in the Rain

Last weekend we went to the race track that was part of the NASCAR circuit, and since we didn't stay until the end, we got home in the late afternoon, which meant we could whip together a quick supper for later, and then hit the ultimate frisbee field. I wasn't sure we would be home in time, figuring the race would be an all day affair. Plus, it was raining, but there were plenty of people out there. In fact, we had a good crowd, which just goes to show you, UF people are hardcore. If anything, the rain was light and made it cool and pleasant to play.

It was wet and slippery out there, but that adds to the entertainment value as everyone ends up on their rear end at some point. The disc was slippery, but we're not that competitive, and it's more about fun, which suits us just fine. A little friendly competition is fine, but not at a high level, at least not yet.

We weren't even sure we were going to play because of the weather, but it just goes to show you that it takes a lot to turn away dedicated UF players. I will say this, the kids are really into it and will go out of their way to play. That's good enough for me.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Sean Scarmack for the pic.
