Hello Kevin:

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
time
"video" the screen and pick up the audio from the old time players in the
room.
The end result is a video of the super 8 with audio picked up from the
players
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?

Jim Powers is still alive!

Best two-sided backhand around.
Started teams in NH, Penn St, Harrisburg and Philly. Did I forget any?

I feel young again.
