7. Tribe
8. Over the Hill

Score in final 15-13
after spider pig were up 8-3 (possibly even 10-3), got back to 10-9. Pretty good game to watch, even if some points had a lot of calls in them

I wasn't there when they announced it but this is what I got told (also similar to what is on the AUS website http://www.unigames.com.au/_uploads/res/1_3034.pdf though that list has a lot of typos, a couple of these people missing plus Camby included so wouldn't trust it completely!)

UNSW: ...One thing I am interested in though is the name Silin Garfield. Silin shares the same last name as Abra and Shua Garfield. Also shares the fact she has a weird first name. I wonder if they’re related.
She's their sister. She got an awesome lay out block against us at the IV yesterday.

Was EUG only 15/80min games? SUG was 17/100min, but we had less teams. Played round robin then playoffs with no semis.

Yeah EUG was 15/80 min - I assume because for some reason there were only 2 fields and so there was a fair bit of time pressure to get all games completed. On the first day there were 6 rounds of games (we didn't finish playing until after 6pm?). I'm not sure why there was only 2 fields used as there were unused fields close by. To be honest given the number of white washes it probably didn't matter as many of the games were completed within an hour or less.

Our draw was 2 pools of 5, with top team advancing directly to semis, and 2 & 3 in each pool playing a pre-semi. We had 7 games but I think the majority of teams had 6 games.

Rach - I would have thought they'd man-mark you earlier in the game. We did that a fair bit against Latrobe (Crystal) and for a few points against Melbourne (Mish Phillips). It's an underused tactic in uni ultimate I reckon.
I think that final point of the game was the only time I was man-marked all tournament.

Just a bit more info about results already mentioned:

UTS v SUUFA semi-final
Was very close for the first 60 minutes. Trading for that entire period, at one point UTS even took the break to be up 5-4. However, SUUFA took half 8-6 (at ~65 min mark of an 80 min game) and then UTS started on D. SUUFA increased the intensity of their zone after half, and eventually won 12-6. The thing that surprised me was the number of times SUUFA turned over the disc - of course UTS's D was outstanding  Grin but we were getting the disc back 3 or 4 times a point.

Bronze medal match
CSU is all about Mark Evans (with solid support play from Cragie). UTS started off slowly and gave up a lead very early on (2-0, then 3-1). Very different game to the semi where SUUFA is pretty solid across the board, whereas CSU is pretty much a 2-man band. As Bozza already mentioned it got to 7-4, then brought back to 7-7. UTS started off playing man D but CSU were scoring pretty easily. We changed up our D to zone with an assassin on Mark. This didn't necessarily keep Mark out of the play but certainly forced a lot more passes (and therefore more turns). There were quite a few calls in this stage of the game, I'd like to think all legitimate but certainly some were influential in the way the game flowed. Time-cap went during the point to even it at 7-7 all so we were playing to 9. CSU took half 8-7 with UTS receiving on the mirror. We had played a pretty successful female iso with myself and Ant Melo which we started off with again. Double-turnover and we had the disc back but CSU (unfortunately!) decided to put a guy on me which made things a bit harder to get moving. We turned it for a second time and CSU didn't need a second opportunity taking the game 9-7.

did the weather affect the training camp on the weekend? fields open? did the games against the Irukandji go ahead? Results? who played?
7  Regional / Australasia / Re: Paying Ultimate Volunteers - For What and How Much? on: May 27, 2009, 05:38:37 PM
I guess I partly mean at what point is it ok to turn a volunteer into a paid person?

when no one will do it (in a timely manner) for free.... and then you pay them whatever will get it done.
(obviously you've got to have decided that it is worthwhile)
8  Regional / Australasia / Re: The Road to Gold Coast: 2009 uni ultimate on: May 21, 2009, 06:26:09 AM
So I guess my thoughts of turning up at EUGs and no one knowing who I was are not particularly realistic...

Wildcard defeated Box 16-14 in women's final (Box up 9-7 at half)

Chilly defeated Fyshwick 17-12(??) in men's final (Chilly up 9-4 at half)

left before the presentations so don't have any other info.

Draw is now up on the Nationals website.


Are you sure? I have had a look through all the pages on the site and can't find it. Anyone else find it? Maybe a direct link?

it's on that page where it says "SCHEDULE RELEASE Click here to download the latest schedule"
11  Regional / Australasia / Re: Nationals 2009 in Perth on: February 25, 2009, 01:23:25 AM
- Sultry
- ?

- Box
- Honey
- Honey B / Tassie ?
- Indies
- Bush

- Primal
- Kaos

- Wildcard
- Sugar Mags
- other Sydney team? (Southside/Hills/Manly)
- Canberra?

There were 10 women's teams at Nationals last time it was in Perth (2005), it wouldn't surprise me if there were only 10 again. Given that there were only 14 at Coffs Harbour last year....
12  Regional / Australasia / Re: Rules questions on: November 08, 2008, 09:20:46 PM
The rules do not require you to say stalling between each count.
9.1. The marker administers a stall count on the thrower by announcing “Stalling” and then counting from one (1) to ten (10). The interval between the first utterances of each word in the stall count must be at least one (1) second.

Key wording:

"stalling and then counting fom one to ten"

I wasn't referring to saying stalling between each point. You said you don't say "stalling" you say "throwing 1..2..3..4". And I was pointing out that saying "throwing" wasn't a legitimate way to start your stall count - it needs to start with "stalling". I may have misunderstood your original post.
13  Regional / Australasia / Re: Rules questions on: November 08, 2008, 05:29:03 AM
As henry said, its just to keep the timing right. You don't have to put "stalling" between each number.

I don't actually say "stalling"... I say "throwing 1.... 2... 3... 4..." Which is just to set myself up and make sure i'm counting at the right pace.

Well you should say 'stalling'. That is what the rules require:
9.1. The marker administers a stall count on the thrower by announcing “Stalling” and then counting from one (1) to ten (10). The interval between the first utterances of each word in the stall count must be at least one (1) second.

Much easier to guess.

Too hard to go trawling through the rules. Besides, I learn from my mistakes much more efficiently than learning by just reading something.

So you expect someone else to do it for you!? That is lazy and a cop-out. It is your responsibility as a player to know the rules.

1.3. Players should be mindful of the fact that they are acting as referees in any arbitration between teams. In such situations, players must:
1.3.1. know the rules;
1.3.2. be fair-minded and objective;
1.3.3. be truthful;
1.3.4. explain their viewpoint clearly and briefly;
1.3.5. allow opponents a reasonable chance to speak;
1.3.6. resolve disputes as quickly as possible; and
1.3.7. use respectful language.

Jason - I've never heard anyone mention any of the things you've suggested in a circle after the game.

If those sort of things were happening regularly then I daresay we wouldn't be having this conversation!
15  Regional / Australasia / Re: MVP Awards on: November 04, 2008, 03:30:42 AM
To slightly digress from the topic at hand once upon a time there were the Jim Garvey and Sally Basten Medals given out to the MVPs of the Open/Women's finals at Nationals. The last time I recall them being given out was in 2002 when Matt Dowle and Sarah Wentworth were the respective winners. (Lachlan Yates and Vivien Stettner were the winners in 2001)

Does anyone have any history on how the awards came about? And why they haven't been awarded since 2002?
