Phoenix

Ontario Open Regionals

Earlier today Too Bad and Firebird faced off in the game to go for Nationals in Sherbrooke. How they got there is two days of drama with unexpected results.

Ontario Open Regionals Day 1 results

An interesting day of Ultimate at the Ontario Open Regionals has finished and the top three seeds are each tied for first with three wins and one loss apiece. Firebird has proven to be particularly strong and will likely not face ROY in the game to go on Sunday afternoon. Day 1 results are available on the WODSwebsite: Day 1 results .

It’s the long weekend and that means I get a bit of time to work on things I enjoy.

Interesting Coincidence?

Ultimate season has kicked off in North America with tryouts and as our top teams form up my thoughts turn (once again) to WUCC 2010 in Prague. While announced years ago the preparations and team lists for Prague are far from complete. Teams across the divisions continue to drop out (Ultimate players are notoriously flaky…ask any Tournament Director) while dedicated teams fill the spots freed up. Last week Doublewide locked in their spot and a team that hasn’t been seen internationally all that much should stun many teams this July.

CUC 2009: Open Finals

During our live broadcast the server first went down at the end of the Open game (I could feel the frustration). Here is the end of that game to all those that missed it. Mephisto in black, Phoenix in white. [flv:http://s1.iamultimate.com/cuc_2009_open_finals_end.flv 400 320] Sorry, no iPhone version this time around.

Alright alright…

I’ll post already! Thanks for all the feedback about the broadcast last weekend (thanks to Trainor for making it go quite smoothly) as well as comments on the blog/blag in general. Now then, what’s to be said about this upcoming weekend? Mixed Up is on and Steven Trainor has coverage on his blog. I’ve decided to take a break this weekend and will instead work on fitness, some flying time, and some much needed work so that I may find the spare time to work on the broadcast system ahead of Nationals (yes, it’s likely that you’ll be able to watch the finals of Nationals live on here). This is turning out to be a boring post so I’ll give you my thoughts on Mixed Up and the NY Invite.

Le Weekend

July 4th weekend fast approaches and while that means Potlatch in the NW it means Flatlands in Manitoba (Prairie Regionals included) and Jazz Fest in Montreal. Teams and seeds have been postedfor Jazz Fest and it looks like it’s going to be tightly competitive. As expected Storm takes the top seed followed closely by PPF (who will be without their captain Darcy D. as she’s at Potlatch). Conspicously missing are Stella and Lotus persumably due to Boston Invite last weekend but one would expect Stella to play in a tournament so close to home.

Where was I?

CUT is over and I’m partially recovered. Wait, I’ll clarify. I’m recovered from the driving rather than the playing. My Friday evening started with a drive to Fergus to drop off a few drinks for my friends from Sudbury, Chicago, and Steve from Blockstack.tv. I also had a chance to hang out for a few moments but a rather rushed visit it was. Driving away from GB was incredibly hard but the lure of CUT was far too great to ignore. My GPS indicated that my travel time to Cazenovia would be ~4.5 hours but a GPS shouldn’t always be trusted and the selected route was closer to 6 hours (it would have been longer but I always have paper maps). Anyhow, enough about me and more about…well the tournament and me.
