Come See Val and Kelly in Action!

Here’s your opportunity! It’s prime time in ultimate frisbee season. We have a mere month left before our national championship series begins and every game matters big time for our rankings. That being said, Val and I have our only local tournament and it’s this weekend! Our team name is Nemesis and we are an elite club team based out of our very own city of Chicago. I know a bunch of you have asked about coming to watch us play and here’s your only chance! (Unless you want to fly to Virginia or Florida later…) We’ve had a great season thus far and are currently ranked #10 in the world. (Lower than we should be but based on our past close losses last tournament in Seattle it makes sense.) We are past champions of this tournament and plan to come away with another victory this year. Going into the weekend we are seeded 1st and will have some great competition to stay in that slot. Here’s more details…
What?: The tournament is called Chicago Heavyweight Championships. There are 16 club women’s teams, 34 club open (men’s) teams and 28 co-ed teams attending.
When?: This Saturday and Sunday- our schedule is here: http://scores.usaultimate.org/scores/#womens/tournament/11612
For those who can’t read brackets, on Saturday we play at 10:15am, 12:00pm, 1:15pm, maybe at 3:30 for a crossover, at in the showcase game at 5:30 where free beer will be given out. On Sunday we play at 10:15am, 12:00pm and 1:45pm. Games are capped at 90 minutes and often it will go the full amount of time.
Where?: It takes place in Rockford, Il at the Rockford Sportscore Complex. It’s located at: Sportscore Two, 8800 East Riverside Blvd., Loves Park, IL 61111. Yes, it’s about a 1 1/2 drive but it will be worth it!
We know it’s a drive but would appreciate any support. It looks to be beautiful (and hot!) weather on Saturday and Sunday looks OK but a slight chance of rain. If you want to stay updated with scores you can use the link above in the ‘When?’; it should be updated at the tournament progresses if you are interested. Feel free to come whenever you can and bring some chairs and beer to hang out and spectate. Dogs and kids welcome as well. Please do email me with any questions and we hope to see some of you there!
