As much as I really want to play this Sunday, I think playing in 30 degrees might be too cold, inviting injuries and bad throws (well, at least mine). I think we're going to have to call it quits for the season. If it warms up and isn't raining too hard, I'll call a game. Until then - have a great holiday!
Edited to add: Apparently, you guys are total troopers and want to play in any weather. So, if anyone is interested in playing, there will be people there this Sunday at 1pm. Have fun!
Hey guys, it looks like it will almost certainly rain on Sunday and the temperature will be pretty low. I'm thinking the turnout will be slim to none so I'm just going to call off the game for Sunday. If there are enough people who are still wanting to play in the rain
Can you believe it? Every day is supposed to be rainy except Sunday. Somebody upstairs loves us. Let's meet at 1pm on Sunday at Duniway Park. Bring a dark shirt and a light shirt (and perhaps something warm).
Last week was slightly frigid and it seems like we're getting close to the end of the season. Let's see how far we can take this. The chance of rain on Sunday as of today is 50%, so keep your collective fingers crossed. Meet at 1pm this Sunday at Duniway Park. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt.
BTW - some players are meeting up for a pub crawl tonight at 6-6:30ish at Migration Brewing (2828 SE Gilsan). From there it's 2) Coalition Brewing, 3) Natian Brewing, 4) Burnside Brewing.
Happy 11/11/11! Don't forget to make a wish at 11am!
Winter is creeping in with heavier rains, but this Sunday the rain should be tolerable. Let's meet at 1pm at Duniway Park. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt. Don't forget to turn your clocks back on Saturday night!
The weather is perfect for frisbee today. Meet at Willamette Park at 5:30, if you can. Most people probably won't be able to make it until 6pm though. In any case, I've been told that the players have found a way to play a bit later via some lights nearby and a glow-in-the-dark disc. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt (and a glow in the dark shirt?)
I hope there was a good turnout on Wednesday! We're blessed with more dry weather this coming Sunday, so come out and play before the rain is here for good. Let's meet at 1pm at Duniway Park. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt.
I still can't believe we didn't get rained on on Sunday. For those who missed it - we had a good turnout and an evenly-matched game. It was tat-for-tat in a "win by two" situation and the team that won ended with 10 points.
You guys are going to luck out tomorrow because it's supposed to be dry. Try to meet at Willamette Park at 5:30pm. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt.
Tarquin (sp?) suggested adding a Facebook group so that we can chat it up and whatnot. I'm going to hook up the blog to feed into the group so that if you're a part of the group, you'll receive the game time updates in your Facebook feed. Here's a link to the group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/183917035016742/
Some people are interested in creating T-shirts for our SW frisbee players. We're working on designing a logo. So far, the only idea has been Eddie's face, but there might be funnier things out there, who knows? j/k Eddie. Anyway, chime in if you have any ideas. Eventually we'll draw up a sketch and see if we can get some sweet shirts to represent us.
Today should be perfect for frisbee. The rain is holding off and it's going to be pretty cool. Meet up at 6pm at Willamette Park, bring a light shirt and a dark shirt. Get there early if you can, so that people can play as long as possible.
Hey guys, now that fall is officially here and the daylight will be ending earlier and earlier, I'm moving the game time back to the hottest part of the day. Let's meet at 1pm on Sunday. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt.
Sunday was super fun. The sun actually did come out eventually and we had a small, intense game.
As for the Wednesday game - there is no way we're getting into the PSU field. If anyone knows of any other lit fields that are available, let us know.
In the meantime, let's meet at 6pm on Wednesday at Willamette Park. If you can get there a little early to warm up, we'll start as soon as we get enough people to play a game. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt.
It seems like fall is finally here. It might actually rain this Sunday! It probably won't be enough rain to keep us from playing. Let's meet at 3pm at Duniway Park. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt.
This week the Wednesday game is the same as before - 6pm at Willamette park. We are working on maybe moving the game to a place with lights so that we can play after dark. Someone is checking the schedule at the PSU turf field to see if we can take up the game there as it gets dark earlier. However, if anyone knows of another place we can try, please let us know.
Other than all that, bring a light shirt and dark shirt tomorrow.
Sunday was a fun game, although the turn out was lower than usual. This heat wave continues, but at least the evening game will get pretty cool. Let's meet at 6pm at Willamette Park tomorrow. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt.
Also, stay tuned for some changes to the Wednesday game. We may be changing time and location for next week's game.
Hey guys, hope you all got enough play time on Wednesday before dark. Sunday is supposed to be really hot, so bring lots of water for yourselves. Let's meet at 3pm at Duniway Park. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt.
It's going to be another hot one tomorrow, but hopefully it will cool down a bit by the time six o'clock rolls around. We're meeting at 6pm at Willamette Park tomorrow. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt.
Also, be sure to check the farthest field in the park, because we might need to take that one tomorrow.
Wednesday was a fun, evenly matched game. We had a good turnout. Thanks to Triorco for the large supply of blueberries! A group of us did karaoke at Suki's afterwards - they have a pretty fun scene. So if you're into that sort of thing, come out on Wednesdays.
Sunday is going to be hot! Bring lots of water. Let's meet at 3pm, bring a light shirt and a dark shirt.
Well, this 20% rain isn't going to hurt us today. Sunday, it poured up until about 4:05 and then we had a completely clear game - even saw the sun. Our fairweather crew kept us at fives, which was a blast. I forgot what a small game felt like on a Sunday.
Anyhood, let's meet at 6pm today at Willamette Park. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt.
I'm not sure if this rain will clear up in time for the game. If it's pouring like this at 4pm, no game. If it's clear or just sprinkling then we're on. The rain is supposedly going to quit by the time late afternoon rolls around. Keep your collective fingers crossed.
I'll post when it's closer to game time for those of you in parts of Portland that might be experiencing different weather than in the SW.
Update: The weather is good enough for a game here in the SW. Hope to see you guys in an hour or so.
Wednesday was a whole lot of fun and we did not get rained on! However, someone got hurt and it reminded me to suggest to players that they have health insurance if they're going to play because one injury can spell out mucho medical bills. Nevertheless, the player is doing okay and no medical attention was necessary.
Anyhoo, let's meet at 4pm at Duniway Park on Sunday. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt.
The Wednesday game was tough in the heat but really fun. Thankfully, it will be a bit cooler on Sunday. Let's meet at 4pm on Sunday at SW Duniway Park (corner of SW Sheridan Ave. and Barbur Blvd). Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt.
Also, there will be talk of doing a tournament in August, so please talk to either me, Eddie or Jim if you won't be there this weekend but are interested in doing the tournament. It takes place Aug. 6-7.
One of our players sent a tip via email that Buckman field in the close-in NE is a soft landing spot for a new game. There are rarely people playing there and the field is easy on the legs. It's a Parks and Recreation park, the same as Duniway and Willamette, so you can play there for free. If anyone is interested in doing tha please do! If you want to start a game but don't know how, please let me know and I can send you in the right direction. You can learn more about the location here.
Um, so, a soccer league has rented the field at Duniway from noon-4pm on Sundays. This means we will have to go earlier or later. I've decided later is better, so just a preliminary heads up that the game will be moving to 4pm until at least July 10th when the soccer league is done.
Hope everyone is having a good week! Don't forget there is a game today at 6pm at Willamette park.
We played our first game at Willamette Park last Wednesday - what a beautiful location! If you've ever dreamed of flying through the air to catch a frisbee in the setting sun, next to a shimmering body of water, then live the dream with us on Wednesdays. We had a great turnout.
This Sunday we might see a little sprinkle, but it will be great weather nonetheless. Meet at SW Duniway Park (corner of SW Barbur Blvd and SW Sheridan) at 1pm. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt. I won't be there, so bring frisbees if you got'em and have a great game!
The Wednesday game has been moved over to Willamette Park on the waterfront (SW Macadam Ave & Nebraska St), to ensure that we have a full-size field to play on. We meet at 6pm on Wednesdays. Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt.
