The tournament is appropriately titled Thrill on the Hill, and an epic fourteen teams will be competing this coming weekend, May 3rd and 4th.

Rain and high winds are expected, which could make an interesting couple of days. Fortunately, if the grass is a little damp, I think players will be more keen to dive for discs, which is one of the true highlights of any ultimate match.

Thrill on the Hill promises to be an exciting weekend, and I can’t wait to play a full weekend of ultimate in the backyard of beautiful Gustavus.
