An ultralight (?) gets ready to take off beside me at Siesta Beach. Looks like a ton of fun! The guy on the ground has a walkie-talkie to speak with the guy in the air.
Anyway, here’s some pics from the beach ultimate game! If this many people show up again next week we may have the beginnings of something great!
Angi (white shirt) and Karen. Karen zips a backhand down the field past Angi. Angi’s first game!
Rusty (red shorts) attempts to block Eric. Eric has just thrown a “swing” pass to Shawn. A swing pass is when you throw the disc sideways, instead of down the field toward the end zone. Useful when you’re running out of time to throw (you have ten seconds, which your defender calls out as he starts guarding you).
A big ‘ol clusterfcuk near the endzone!! I’ve superimposed lines on the pic to help make the endzone a little clearer. The sideline is the black line; the large red line is the front of the endzone, the smaller red line is the back. The teams are shirts vs. non-shirted (and Karen). Eric (center of the short, white shirt) has the disc. The idea here is that he’s trying to throw it to to a teammate in the end-zone. Well, there’s Angi, who you can see just between Eric and Rusty’s head. But she’s not very open! Shortly after this shot was taken, however, Shawn (yellow visor) faked running right and zipped over to Eric’s left at the last moment to receive the pass. Point!!
We ended up playing until sunset! Good times were had by all! Well, all, unless my upper lip gets a say, in which case, good times were had by all except for my upper lip, which I’m certain didn’t appreciate getting busted a second time in as many days. Ack!
