Pancake Trophy 2015 – A review

This year Pancake Circle Ltd. again hosted their semi-hat tournament on Ekeberg. Ulitmate Rainfall sported six players, which was not enough to form a complete team. We had hoped to join forces with Wizards of Ås, but that constellation was not to be. That meant that we were split up and distributed on to three of the four participating teams. The teams were:

Team From BSI
Stylters Chisato and Lisa
Pancake Circle Ltd Terje
Soaked and Psyched Elin, John and Louis
NTNUI

The weather gods were all but with us. It rained, at times poured, throughout most of the tournament day and the wind picked many a disc up and away from the intended receiver. This made the matches go back and forth, and all matches were played their full 90 minutes.

After two games all the teams had won one match and lost the other. This meant that the winners of the third matches of the day would play the final. The results from the group play was:

Pancake Soaked Stylters
NTNUI Pancake NTNUI Stylters
Pancake Pancake Stylters
Soaked Soaked

In the bronze final between NTNUI and Soaked and Psyched the score was 13-14 when time ran out. After the last point the score was 14-14 and a final deciding point had to be played. Soaked and Psyched drew the longest straw and secured the third place.

The final was played between Pancake Circle Ltd and Stylters. In the group play PCL was crushed by Stylters, but in the final they managed to put up a fight. In the end it was Stylters who was the strongest team and won the tournament.

Congratulations to Chisato and Lisa, and thanks to everybody who participated. A special thanks to Pancake Circle Ltd for hosting the event, but next year please order better weather!

Ultimate Frisbee promo at “Aktivitetsdag” at Leikvanghallen

The sports council (Idrettsrådet) in Bergen has invited BSI Ultimate to show our sport to the 8th graders at the activity day on June 11th.

The activity day is held by the sports council, and it is an excellent opportunity for us to show off our sport to our future recruits.

We have accepted the invitation and Robert Sasak and Terje Monsen will participate, giving a quick intro to the rules, and let the children try some throwing.

If more members want to join you are most welcome.

“Rainy Wizard” to Pancake Trophy

Since we’re not a full team from BSI going to Pancake Trophy, I’ve reached out to NMBUI. They have 4+ players coming, and we’ve agreed to join forces.

This is, in my opinion, a better solution than if both teams should be split up into pick-up teams and play some with and some against each other. I hope that Kate in Pancake Circle Ltd. will approve this.

 

Outdoor practices on Thursday @ Krohnsminde 16:00

Spring is here and indoor season has come to a close. The hall is full of tables and chairs, so Thursday practices will be held at Krohnsminde at 16:00.

We will be hard pressed to find a later time at Krohnsminde as it is full of active clubs. If you all would like a later time we would have to investigate alternative venues like Stemmemyren. Also we could investigate weekend practices in addition to or in place of one of the weekly practices. Also we could investigate going to Stemmemyren. Please leave your comments on the web page.

 

We need photos

We need a collection of new photos for the new web site. I am looking for pictures from practices and from newer tournaments. We’ll try to get some images from the old site, but new pictures are also nice.

If someone feels like writing stuff on the new pages let me know and I’ll grant you access.

 

New web pages!

Bergen Studentidrettslag has now moved to a more modern platform based on WordPress. BSI Ultimate has long since moved to this platform, and is now glad to see that all of BSI is moving towards this platform.

It may take a while before all the content from the old page is transferred to the new installation, but we will try to get as much as possible with us in the move.
