29.11.2021- Masters League final round
The 3rd and final week of the league was a perfect end to the event. Not only did we enjoy an awesome night of Ultimate, it was a great night of catch-ups as past players came out to watch and chat on the sideline. We also celebrated 6 players turning 50 in 2021 (including one missed in 2020 due to COVID19).
The Rob Lloyd Memorial Masters trophy was won by Chilli Legends. Congratulations!
There is talk of a Grand Masters Challenge but only Salusa 45 has a full roster of eligible players with their Masters team line-up of 9 women and 12 men all qualifying. And 10 of these players qualify for Great Grand Masters. Needless to say Salusa 45 topped the average age chart with 45 yrs, hitting their namesake. Chilli was a respectable 39 yrs avg age while Carc are the new kids on the block with avg age of 35. If we can host a Grand Master perhaps we can create a handicap system that takes into account age differences.
22.11.2021- Masters League wind blown
