For those interested in going to Bangkok Hat in 2011! Message from Tri of Bangkok:
Greetings ultimate folks! I'm happy to pass along the word that the
Dawgz finally set the date for the 11th Bangkok Hat. It will take
place on February 12/13, 2011. (It is a little later than last year
because we want people to avoid the hassles of traveling during Lunar
New Year time. Sorry, can't please everyone.)
Important FYI- It will be at the same fields/facility. If you didn't
see the guns in the past, allow me to remind you that it's an Army
Come out and play!
Take exit G1 from Zhi Chun Lu subway station (line 10 or 13), walk 100m past the food / chuanr stalls and you'll see the entrance for the fields.

The 12th annual Singapore Open tournament is officially in the books. Read the write-up and check out the pictures and videos from the China Ultimate website here.
Beijing Big Brother, as you may have heard, participated in the tournament. We lost all our games Saturday, won the party, then beat two teams on Sunday to take a tie for fifth place. Not bad at all, considering our undermanned (and womaned) roster.
vs. Mixed Nuts, L 11-6
vs. Shiock, L 13-1

Big Brother, winners of Dalian Open 2010
Big Brother sent split squads to the Dalian over the weekend for the second annual Dalian Open, with Beijing "Ugly" beating "Sexy" twice -- including 13-9 in the finals -- to claim the trophy. Representatives from Shanghai were gracious enough to make the trip, as Huwa's presence always adds legitimacy to Chinese-run tournaments and will help Dalian's organizers as they try to expand their tourney into an international one in years to come.
From Tao's blog (www.beijingultimate.blogspot.com):
A competitive and fun tournament in Singapore recently concluded with Mixed Nuts, a team from the Philippines, winning the championship a year after an iteration of that same team lost three straight breaks to lose on universe point in the finals.
