Flood Watch wins first Elimin8s

Flood Watch

Team Flood Watch was undefeated in Ultimate NL’s first Elimin8s tournament.

With six teams and over 60 players participating, Flood Watch proved to be tough opponents in the tournament but emerged the victor when Erin Daly caught a pass from Mike Pineau to score the winning point against Gyr8tors.

Both teams were down to two players each on the field, making it a battle of both smarts and skill.

In Elimin8s style ultimate, teams start with eight players but lose a position on the field with each point scored. This makes for highly competitive games and most matches were separated by less than three points.

In a post-tournament survey, 92 per cent of respondents said their experience at the tournament was excellent or that they were very satisfied with it. Ninety-two per cent also said they’d like it to be an annual event.

Thank you to everyone who came out and helped make it a success! Special thanks to tournament director Kathleen Sullivan, and to Tempest for providing field snacks.

Huckfest is a co-ed 5-on-5 tournament that will take place on Dec. 27 from 5-10 p.m. at the Techniplex. The cost is $40 for five hours of turkey-burning, cookie-cleansing fun!

This year, we’re aiming for equal numbers of male and female players to alternate gender ratios each half (i.e. the first half will be 3:2 of one gender and the second half will be 3:2 for the other gender). This will depend on the number of registrants for each gender  and we’ll notify participants of changes prior to the tournament in the Facebook event.

See you there!
