First I want to thank some people integral to making this AO a reality.
Merit badge and rest of the canyon/oracle ultimate crew for inspiring me to start doing some ultimate pop ups during the week.
Guys like Oompa, doppler, tea party, baby shoes, and wentworth for expressing interest in playing some ultimate.
Gator for showing up to play at an unsanctioned pop up in may, identifying a passion in the pax, and helping relay that to the leadership of F3 Omaha.
As many of you may know, the whole reason I joined F3 is because i had just played with a masters team at nationals in 2021 and I wanted to get in shape so I could be a more effective ultimate player on that team in 2022. Well, I jumped into f3 hard and lost a bunch of weight and got into the best shape id been in since high school by the end of 21, I then tore up the old knee and missed playing ultimate in 2022 but the idea of playing in 23 was a driving force in my recovery and losing weight and getting back in shape again. well a week or so before the first masters tournament this year, I got a call from one of the new captains and got some bad news about my role on the team and I started thinking about how some of my best buddies on the team were not going to be there this year. and I was down and out and stressed about the time and money commitment staying on the team in what would be a limited role would entail. I called my buddy doppler and he broke it down so clearly for me. He said is your goal to be stressed out about being a bit part player on a team that might go to nationals or is it to play ultimate with your buddies and have a good time.
Selfishly I’m so thankful for the opportunity to plant this flag in service of having a good time with my buddies and playing some disc. Unselfishly I’m so excited to provide an opportunity for all the PAX of F3 Omaha to do the same.
Thanks to all of you.
Tater tot would you pray us out? If no tater, pick someone else. Gator/plague
