Hilo Hat Draw 2010

Hello Everybody,

The Hilo Hat Draw is coming. The dates are Feb. 20-21, 2010.

You can register here.

Also, we will be offering a few Hiloships to those in need. This will be a $50 tournament fee instead of $90. But be advised, you will be expected to help out a couple of hours each day. Please only apply for this option if you really need it.

Email me if you want to volunteer or if you want a Hiloship. Don't forget to register by Jan. 15th for the early registration price. Hiloships will not be offered after this date as well. Thank you all for your help...with everyone's support, we'll make this the best tournament in Hawaii ever (or at least the drunkest if I can help it).

Your TD,

Fall League '09

This week marks the beginning of Fall League '09...Swing of Fire vs. the World. In this epic opening showdown, Swing of Fire pulled an early lead and never gave it up, despite an encouraging final effort and harrowing comeback by the World. The game ended 15-12 with Swing of Fire gaining control of the league. But the World is not finished yet...there are already strategic plans in the work to "Tanya Harding" Keoki, Swing of Fire's first week MVP. The next few weeks will only tell whether Hilo Ultimate truly belongs to Swing of Fire or the World.

Hi...we're back!

It is dusty around this site. Yikes!!

Well i left and then i came back because, seriously, who could stay away from Hilo Ultimate?!?!

Turns out nothing much has changed. Our community is still kickin' or should i say huckin' and as tight as ever. People come and go, so is the life on this island.

I am sure the traffic on this site has decreased quite a bit and so I went ahead and created a Facebook profile for us. So check it out and join if you want.

In other news:

1. Kaimana Klassik 22 is coming up quickly! Feb. 13-16 2009. Hilo is sending their sexy and hairy men's team Helolo and a few of our gorgeous ladies to play with Oahu's Sippin' Sallies. We're excited!!

2. Maui Hat Draw is also happening the week after Kaimana. Registration is cheap this year and over 100 folks already signed up. So go check it out!!!

3. League 356 (i can't even remember what number we are on) is going start after Kaimana. I am volunteering to be the comish unless someone else is dying to do it!

4. Night Ultimate returned this January and man, was it ever a success: over 20 folks showed up and we had a fun show down between Hilo and the World :). Can't wait for the next one? Stay tuned!

Thanks to katie and eric who have updated the site in the mean while!!!

League Finals Upset!

The wet Hilo weather returned just in time for our league finals last Sunday, but we all had a fun time playing in a little bit of rain. After defeating Red in the play-in game, the White team advanced to the championship match vs. the undefeated Pink Torpedoes. Both teams played savage or nearly so because of injuries and a few missing players. By halftime, it looked like the first game helped White Swing of Fire warm up - they led 8-4. In the second half, Pink made a number of runs but was never quite able to take the lead. Red won, 15-12. After the game, we all feasted on a variety of goodies that everyone brought to share. Our exemplary Spirit Players for the season were JP and Rose. Congratulations and mahalo to everyone who came out and played so hard this season! (insert cool league pic here...anyone?)

Bouquet League Week 1

Wow, over three months since we've had a Hilo Ultimate blog update. We really miss you Dine...thanks go out to Katie for giving me access to post and read her email!

Thanks or blame goes to Captain Mongo for changing the Patriot League into the Bouquet League. Happy Valentine's Day in September (I <3 Mike Long).

The final score was 13-12-9 or something like that, in order of Pink-Red-White. Each of those teams gets 3-2-1 points in the standings, respectively. Everyone but me had great spirit, so kudos to all of you!

For next week, let's try and come up with team names (other than SoF), start play at 4:30 sharp, and do team cheers at the end of play. I will bring spirit player prizes and/or beers. It has been a great start for our league, if you couldn't make it last week, make sure to show up next time!

A Big Mahalo to You Dine!

The Hilo Ultimate Community sadly says goodbye to one of our most dedicated, spirited, and fun loving players this month, Nadine.

Nadine has been a valued member of the Hilo Ultimate Community for four glorious years. She is one of our strongest female players on the field and has contributed to the enjoyment of playing Ultimate in more ways than can even be expressed! Thanks to Nadine, we have an ongoing blog to document the happenings of Hilo Ultimate and highlight the great players we have. She has been a instrumental member on three Swing of Fire Teams and the 1st She Go Ho Team. She has played in a number of other tournaments with other teams including the 2007 Potlatch Tournament in Seattle. Nadine , aka "Spirit Queen", has headed the spirit committee on every team she plays on bringing us amazing contributions like the D - Cape, She Go Ho half time show, brilliant lyrics to opening songs, victory goblet, Dave Gelber masks, side line music, short skirts,the list goes on and on and on.

So, to you Nadine, we say thank you. Thank you for your friendship, your amazing spirit, for challenging us all on and off the field to be better players. Thank you for being a part of our community. Your presence will be greatly missed. We love you and wish you the best of luck on all your future endeavors!
