Wahine Weekend

A message from da Oahu gals:

Hey Ladies!

It’s that time again – the weather is getting a little cooler (not too much though) – the days of Kaimana have made it slightly into our view – we’re ready to play some women’s ultimate!

What: Wahine Weekend – Fall 2006
When: Oct. 21-22 (Saturday and Sunday)
Where: Makiki District Park on Oahu
Who: All the wahine out there that love to play ultimate and any other wahine we can convince to try it out for the first time.
Why: We love playing womens. It’s less dangerous than playing with the boys. It’s a good chance to recruit. It’s another excuse for a party, good food, good friends to hang out with.

Check out the webpage that has been prepped with a tentative schedule and some more details about the weekend. http://www.hawaiiul timate.com/ wahine.asp We’re trying to focus a lot on recruitment for this wahine weekend. What that means for you – everyone who can, should try to bring along at least one new player. Bring someone who’s into sports, looking for a fun group of women to hang out with - someone who’s been longing to find that ultimate community.

Off-island ladies – I only have a few e-mail addresses for folks off-island – please please please, help me by forwarding this info to those whose addresses I don’t have. Also, right now Go!, Aloha, and Hawaiian are offering cheap inter-island tickets. Take advantage while you can so you can come spend the weekend with us.

Please RSVP with whether you can make it or not. (if you can make only one day and not the other let me know that too) Additionally if you have questions – please please ask away. We’ll send out another e-mail later with more details as necessary and answers to questions. Oahu ladies – if you have space to house some of our neighbor island friends, please let me know so we can plan accordingly.

See you all soon!!

League V - Game 2 Recap

Another saturday another game! The beauty about this weeks game was that all the unexpected happened. Last weeks loser won, and last weeks winner lost. I like that. At this point all teams are even and everything is undecided...how fun!

From the start Green showed its true colors winning every point but one. They came back with a vengeance. Black struggled to keep up and red wasn't even on the score board. But after a while red managed to catch up to black while black spent its energy trying tos tay close to green. But in the end...the order never changed and green took home the win. Red was struggling due to its low numbers and its missing star player. Luckily Pao Pao is in town for a visit and helped red out. With barely 7 players and no subs they managed to give black a run for its money. Both black and green had excellent numbers...congrats for such devoted team members!

Women's Wednesdays

Yes, it's here! Women’s ultimate in Hilo! We had an awesome first night of pick-up play with many new faces. We are hoping to build our numbers as we create a supportive environment for newcomers to learn the game. We had several experienced players out there teaching the game.......... and the high point of the night was when a first time player skyed her opponent for a D in the endzone.

We are playing the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month at 5:00 PM at the Chiefess Kapiolani School at 966 Kilauea Av. The fields are behind the school on Mohouli St.

League V - Game 1 Recap

Last saturday marked the beginning of our first game for League V. Very exciting indeed.
We have three teams: Lettuce Rock U (green), Beet It (red), and Black Hole (black).

Beet and Hole had only 6 players on the line but were lucky enough to have Eamen and Dan help out. Lettuce had their 7 but were missing some of their hotshots and thus had somewhat of a rough game. Initially Hole took the lead but Beet would have much of it. They quickly gained a lead that wasn't going to be beet ;)

Lettuce struggled throughout the game but eventually made the scoreboard with a wicked cool point! they looked good but i think they are experiencing some growing pains. I am sure they will come back with a vengeance soon enough!

Game 1 Status
Beet - 10
Hole - 8
Lettuce - 1

Overall Point Status:
Beet - 3
Hole - 2
Lettuce - 1

Spirit Player:
Female - Sarah
Male - Eamen

Thanx also to Commissioner Morris for a wicked fun first game and to Jeannie & Tim who provided a super fun spontaneous party right after!!!

Good Bye Matt & Jeremy!!!

As new people join us every year there are those that leave us. It seems lately we been having a stream of great people saying good bye. It is always sad because when you start playing hilo ultimate you become family!!!

This post is to say aloha to Matt and Jeremy, yeah the really tall one ;)
Matt has already left us this summer and i just haven't had a chance to mention it. Its already to obvious that he is gone. From lil Noah on the sidelines to Matt's strong voice on the field. Matt and his family are very very missed! But we know that they have moved on to fantastic new life in Virginia (i think its Virginia) with a super new job teaching at the university for Matt. We wish him and his family the best of luck and hope you will visit and play a point with us!

Now Jeremy is about to leave and i can't even begin to say how much his red tight undies, funky T's, and his beautiful hair will be missed! Always a smile on his face and with the longest stride in history he is ready to chase after that disk. It's been so great to have you with us all this time and we wish it could be for longer.
Jeremy is moving "home" (Georgia) for a little while only to return for a few weeks later this year when he will leave us for good for an awesome job off the coast of California. Have fun out there and keep comin' back!
