Good to hear from you ....long time.
I agree with your assessment below. I remember the same tournament....from
a slightly different perspective....tournament director...trying to keep
things running smooth.
I also remember Santa Barbara having a little trouble with the East Coast or
should I say Boro Zone. Throw in a little rain and wind .... and you have a
great mix for an upset. I still remember the look of disbelief in TK eyes
during that game...stayed cool....but the Left coasters could not pull it
out in the end.
As for supper 8 film....yes I still have it....just been sitting on
it.....my old super 8 projector died...bulb I think ....so I can not even
look at it now.
If you are interested this is what I recommend:
- Try and get a few key players from each team (captains + who ever is
available (Penn State U. players?) together at some future Ultimate event
(2001 Championships, 2002 Championships (25 year anniversary)). Play
the supper 8 film (projected onto a screen) and have the available players
provide commentary / play by play (including pre and post game comments)
while the supper 8 is running. While all this is going on we at the same
"video" the screen and pick up the audio from the old time players in the
The end result is a video of the super 8 with audio picked up from the
in the room. Done correctly with a few beers - this can work great. I know
it is a
stretch - but this is the best idea I can come up with. What do you think?
