"And there came hail and fire mixed with blood,
and it was hurled down upon the earth."
-- Book of Revelations, 8:7
The epic struggle between the forces of good and
evil has never been resolved; neither side can
claim outright victory for domination of the
world...until now. On March 5th, one tournament will
decide the future fate of the universe.
This tournament will be played in a modified hat
tournament style. Upon arrival, each player will
be assigned to either team Good or team Evil,
based on playing ability, gender, and "innate
goodness/evilness as determined by a judgment of your
peers." (i.e., if you are puritanically good or
despicably evil, there is no escaping your
Good and Evil will compete against each other in
a multitude of disc games throughout the evening.
There will be a full scale game of ultimate,
along with other disc games like flutterguts, double
disc, rolling rock, boot, etc. Players may
substitute into any game they want at any time, as long
as they only play for their assigned team. All
games will be played to a set number of points.
After a game finishes, the winning team will receive
points for winning the game, and then a new game
will begin. This will continue until 6:00 am, at
which time the points will be totaled for good
and evil and a winner announced. The winning side
will be rewarded with the knowledge that they can
claim complete domination of the universe for the
Participants may show up at any time during the
night, and leave whenever they feel they have
proven which side should be the true victor. Each
player should bring one white and one black shirt
(assuming you are unsure if you are good or evil).
We will be holding the tournament inside a field
house. Only sneakers should be worn inside the
field house, which is fairly well heated and
ventilated. All games will be coed, but there will be
no set ratio of men to women; that will be decided
by the participants on a game by game basis.
The tournament will provide bagels, water, fruit,
and 12 hours worth of ultimate. In addition,
because this is a major fundraiser for our team, we
will have dinner and snack food available for
purchase. "Good" food like sandwiches, Gatorade,
Power bars, and vegetables will be available, along
with "Evil" food like pizza, soda, candy, and junk
food. "Good" and "Evil" t-shirts can be purchased
for a small fee.
If you would like to attend the tournament,
and include your preferred team, along with
gender and playing ability (ranked on a 1 - 5 scale,
one being beginner and 5 being experienced upper
level club ultimate player). If you preregister,
you will get one free Dartmouth Women's Ultimate
sticker. Same night registration is allowed, but
does not include a sticker.

THE FINAL WORD:

California tournament and a Texas tournament. Please help
support our team in any way you see fit. We
accept any and all donations, and you will earn our
Team captains, please forward this email to your
teams. The more people who play, the better,
because no on can escape Armageddon.
Just remember...what will you say when your kids
ask you where you were during the decisive battle
between the forces of good and evil?
