Finishing up our Paganello 2010 Finals today we feature the Open Final.
This final features defending champions UTI (UK, Blue) vs Los Tiger (USA, Yellow).
Continuing with our Paganello theme today you’ll find the Mir San Mir vs Wall City match from 1998. Between 1992 and 1999 German teams won every single Open Finals; on four occasions Mir San Mir were championships while Wall City won once. Not until No Tsu Oh would Mir San Mir’s record be topped. Enjoy the Open Finals below and the full Paganello 2008 DVD will be available shortly.
It’s Video Wednesday! As our editor takes a break from CUC Finals (Open will be here in December) we look to the Beach for some inspiration. The next major tournament on all Calendars (aside from Australia, you folks are always six months ahead…or behind) is Paganello. While registration is closed you should know (just between you and me) that if you had an Open or Women’s team you’d probably still be allowed to place a bid and might even be considered (consider it).
You all know my love of Paganello and it’s one of the primary reasons why I love the game so much. In 2008 a grand project to document NotSuOh’s final Paganello was undertaken. The project continues and the first hurdle of raising $1000 has been surpassed. In recognition of passing the first milestone Brett has posted a trailer on his site: http://bit.ly/NTOdocCampaign
It’s a great trailer that introduces us to how NotSuOh became friends with the tournament and organizers. In addition to the guys on the team the trailer has some words from: Jumpi, Luca, Gege, and Bunny. The guys in yellow are Scadour, the boys from Rimini, who also found 2008 to be their last year (so far).
Thank you to those that have contributed to the project.
