Where to start?
First thing first, as Orange Farm Ultimates it was the first time attending a big tournament as a team, we owe thanks to everyone who help raise donations to assist our team with transportation. Despite all the hustle and venue changes due to the student strike we really had fun, we did not win most of our games but we achieved our goal.
Our weakness was the fact that we only had two ladies on the team who were required to be on the line full time for two days. The fields allocated to us and several other teams were rough and resulted in some injuries to our players, to be specific it was field 7 and 8.
Rocktober helped us realize how far we are in terms of game play, we hoping to invade Nationals and see how we play in equal odds.
All in all we had a splendid weekend and that’s thanks to everyone who brought the Spirit of the Game to Rocktober 2016.
