A quick recap of the Tianjin tournament

We're still in the process of collecting information for the official recap of this past Saturday's Tianjin tournament, but here were the key happenings:

Shanghai Huwa -- an abridged version led by Jon Greenberg -- won the A pool, beating ISB, Tianjin Waiyuan, Beijing Bang and Tianjin Speed.

Beijing Big Brother won the B pool (though word was Beijing was the No. 1 overall seed), consisting of Changsha (长沙, a Tianjin/Qingdao mix), Teda (with some Dalian players and foreigners), Air Kazak and Tianjin Speed Up.

1月10日 HANGTIME队组织室内随机比赛

1月10日下午2点北京HANGTIME队、大哥队、帮队、天津队的刘也、刘文龙在我们HANGTIME队组织下在北京亦庄中学体育馆进行了一场紧张而又有趣的室内飞盘比赛。因为有人迟到,所以推迟了半个小时才开始活动,大家先是热身,然后就直接进行了分组比赛,我们按照人数分成了五支队伍。每队通过三次比赛决出名次,然后再进行淘汰赛。
在比赛中所有人都很兴奋,不论输赢,大家都很开心。因为室内比赛不同于户外的场地比赛,不允许使用诸如HAMMER的飞盘投掷方法,所以在最后决赛的时候,当双方战到6:6,双方都是赛点的时候,刘文龙用过顶掷方法把盘传递给得分区里的Jeff时,对方叫了犯规,也就是这样,Jim率领着他的队得到了一次珍贵的进攻机会,并最终以一分优势击败了沈安率领的第三队,获得了第一名。

花絮:

    1. 由于组织者Roger是第一次组织活动,显得手忙脚乱,如果没有老赵、王颖、沈安、Zahlen、Jeff的大力帮助,呵呵,可能早就晕菜啦~~~
    2. Jim率领着第五队连着打了三场比赛,队员们累的都不行了,这个是刘杰的责任,我在这里检讨一下。
    3. 感谢刘洋为我们找到了两辆便宜的金杯客车,以及此次活动的场地都是刘洋推荐的,再次感谢刘洋为我们所做的一切。

Beach Ultimate Frisbee tournament in Beijing

The sand was artificial and, at places, hurt like hell to land on (more on this later), but it was still a fun day at the beach, even if there was no water. Organized by the inimitable Jeff Orcutt et al., we split into four teams -- names drawn out of a hat -- and played four games each.
