We thought we might try something a little different this week -- a truly beginner-friendly game.
NOTE: THIS IS NOT TO REPLACE THE MORE ADVANCED REGULAR WEEKLY GAME, which will still be at the same time as usual. Tim will post that game soon. (Go Tim!)
Part of the reason we originally started this group was to create a space here in Brooklyn for people to learn the game and feel comfortable coming out and playing even if they suck. As the group has grown over the last year and we've attracted more and more skilled players, the level of play has increased significantly. This is great for all you rock stars out there, but I'm guessing that some of us who still consider ourselves pretty mediocre Ultimate players (like me!) may feel a little intimidated, especially people who have never played before or have only played a few times.
The game will take place at ** 12:00 PM ** at the same location as the regular game, in the Long Meadow near the Picnic House. (For directions, click on the "About Us" page). This will allow people who want to come out and play the slower game as a warmup to then stick around and still play in the regular 2:00 PM game.
Of course, if you are a more intermediate player that doesn't mind or even enjoys playing a slow game, you are totally welcome.
Please RSVP so we know approximately how many people will be coming. IF THERE ARE LESS THAN 8 PLAYERS WHO HAVE RSVP'ED "YES" BY 12 PM ON SUNDAY, WE WILL CANCEL THE GAME. So make sure you update your RSVP even if you change your mind at the last minute. If we get a good turnout this week, we'll see if it makes sense to do this more often.
Oh, and don't forget to bring a LIGHT and a DARK shirt. If you can't find us in the park, call my cell -[masked]-0828.
