With us now in December, people are probably posting less often but maybe with more time, and its the perfect time to cast your mind back over the last twelve months.

What were the best bits of 2007?

On the Big Picture:
- Biggest Halibut ever with 16 solid teams
- Brisbane brings home Mixed Nats Championship via Bootius and AUG Championship via UQ Lovers
- Nationals and Mixed Nats achieving new levels of quality organisation

On a Personal Level:
- Lounge Lizards becoming a pretty cool club
- Very productive year for AFDA Board
- Ran a couple of good tournaments this year (Northerns and an Indoor one)
- Getting better at playing against with MattA and Leon (my personal comparative standards)

How about you lot?

-> CSU becomming a better team in mixed competition

Personal
-> Putting in a solid and final year running CSU (i don't think they could be in a better position)
-> Scoring my first and our clubs first Callahan against UTS
-> Catching a hammer from Heather and beating Mike Nield one on one in the same go
-> Breaking my arm, finishing 2 games and helping CSU win it's first tourney

Big picture
- Nationals and Mixed Nationals both being very slick operations
- The standard of play at AUG being better than ever
- Juniors really starting to get off the ground

Personal
- Taking on roles at National and State level

- Winning spirit at AUG
- The Ultimate Road Trip (Ballarat-Gold Coast-Byron Bay-Sydney-Ballarat in 2 weeks)

This is my first year of Ultimate.

Spring Hat
Longest Day
Terrigal Towel
The Ultimate Stampede
Gala Day
Youth Nationals
Shenanigans III
Hills Hoist II
Mixed Regionals
Mixed Nationals (not sure if either of these count... I was playing with Manly)
Spring Hat
Melbourne Hat

On a personal level, though, having Walcott scare me into drinking beer (which I had previously flat out refused to do) was definitely the best bit of 2007.

Scratch that, personal bests are a tie between having three costume changes at the Mixed Nationals party and the disc golf before Melbourne Hat, where I lost my phone and drunkenly told Owen Shepherd I loved him.

It's been a great year.

Man Matzuka your "Personal" list for 2007 would be quite impressive if you listed it... but because you didn't I will list it for you:

Matzuka's Personals:
- Gold Medal for Australia at World Beach Championships
- Gold Medal at Mixed Nationals
- Gold Medal at Australian Uni Games
- Green and Gold selection at Australian Uni Games
- MVP at Nationals

Not a bad haul for the year...!

the disc golf before Melbourne Hat, where I lost my phone and drunkenly told Owen Shepherd I loved him.

Firstly, that was hilarious

Highlights:
- Spirit at Mixed Nats, including the 15 minute undie point in freezing wind
- Bozza's blood pack prank in our game at AUGs, where he intentionally ran into me and put fake blood all over his head, completely fooling me and freaking me out
- Meeting so many more of you Smiley

Lowlights:
- Colliding Karen at AUGs, giving her 3 stiches to the skull and 1/2L bloodloss, and me a slightly bruised eyelid...not exactly fair

it's the obscure things that you really remember...
