Sunday, January 13th, Indoor 2019

We showed up at the third open indoor day with a smaller handler line than the previous two outings. But with reinforcements in the cutting line were prepped to give it our best. 
The theme of the day would be building a lead early on in the match, the giving it away again to make it exciting at the end of the match. (Unintentionally of course)
First up was ufo2. This match followed the theme perfectly, but we got away with a few points lead in the end again, winning the match.
Then W.A.F., W.A.F. is turning out to be our nemesis this season, having narrowly lost last time around. This match followed the theme of the day again, and to my frustration, led to a tie, going with a lead in the final point.
Not following the theme was the match against Frisbee Club Veenendaal Tijgers, we lost outright with a large differential, props to the just promoted team.
The last match was against Force Elektro who just relegated from third. This time we followed the theme of the day again, but managed to take off with such a lead that we could manage the last points until the time was up. To get away with a surprising win. Our overall conclusion was that this match should not have lasted 5 minutes longer.
It was a great day of ultimate, thanks W.A.F. for organising onces more.

Sunday, December 9th, Indoor 2018

Sunday 9th of December Rotterdamnit open team went to Wageningen for the second indoor day of the 18/19 season.

Our first match was against Disc Devil’s Twente.
The young team had a great indoor type of play, but in the end, proofed no match for our speed and safe throws.

Next two matches would be the deciders in the competition, first up Ultimaas, second would be WAF.
Both matches could be characterised as a great performance of ultimate frisbee, a lot of fair play, but intense and fast.
In both matches, we were at most one break point in front or one break point behind, trading lead position throughout. We managed to be in front in both games in the final minutes, but unfortunately, we gave the lead away in both games,  losing both.

Hell-bent on redemption, we didn’t start out great in our last match against UFO. Not wanting a similar scenario as last two matches, we upped our game halfway through the match, eventually coming away with a comfortable win.

Having won 2 out of 4, we had a great time and are looking forward to the rematch against WAF in the new year.

From the ladies of R’damnit;

For the first time ever, R’damnit brought a ladies team to indoor competition: the R’dames!
Starting in the third and lowest division (as we entered the competition for the first time), we got a chance to try out our indoor skills.
And were more successful than expected, as we won all four matches of the day and got promoted to the second division!


This first round of matches allowed us to get to know each other in indoor context.
To try out some first offensive and defensive plays (especially our ‘cupcake’ defence strategy turned out very effective). But it also gave us some helpful pointers on how we need to improve to do well in the second division also.
With a special thanks to the ladies joining us from Ultimus Prime.
Looking forward to the next competition day!


From the gentlemen of R’damnit;

For the first time, R’damnit fielded an open and ladies team for the winter leagues. The open team headed to Arnhem, being placed in the 5th division. Bringing a mix of experienced and new players for the challenges that day.


First up was Rising High. Always fun and well matched. After an early break, we were trailing one point up until 8 – 8 on the scoreboard. Rdamnit bringing an outdoor type of play, because we haven’t mastered any other play style. Rising high being a bit more adapted to true indoor.  At 8 – 8 we managed to break back and lead to a 12 – 9 win.


Next up was Gronical Dizziness, playing an intense defence, denying Gronical Dizziness many of their long throws into the end zone led to an early lead and a comfortable victory. 


Looking at the results of the day, Airborn looked like the victors of the day, going one division up. Yet again playing an intense defence, coupled together with a solid offence led us to be the victors of the 5th division, with still one match to play before the end.


AUC had a solid indoor play with experience and youth complementing each other. They couldn’t break our defence, but when they switched to a shorter play, we had to throttle up to stay in the lead, eventually winning the match 11 – 9


All in all, it was a really nice day playing ultimate frisbee, playing in a competitive division. Coming away with 4 wins made it all the more enjoyable. 4th division, we will see you in December!

Second Outdoor Competition Day

On sunday 29th of April we had our second competition day of the outdoor season we had a great time! We had a lot less rain than expected. It  also was the first time for our new team mascot, 10 month old Thijs, to come and watch from his buggy.

In our first game we were up against BeeFrisbee2s who had just promoted from the 6th division. The difference in playing level was to be expected since we just degraded from 4th. Still, we discovered that BeeFrisbee2s managed to break through our zone easily. Nevertheless did a switch back to man defence help deliver us a winning score of 15-5.

In our second game of the day we played against Flying High, a team that we had played on our first competition day and that had degraded to 5th division as well. Flying High came with a slightly stronger team this time and the game that followed was very intense. They started out a little ahead, but during the middle of the game we gained momentum and got to 13-9 ahead. Then Flying High fought itself back which allowed them to win the game 14-13 on universe at the nerve wrecking end!

In our last game we stood against UFO. The development of this game proved to be remarkably similar to the previous one. R’damnit was behind at the start but ahead during most of the game thereafter. However, UFO came back strong in the last 20 minutes and forced us to fight for our win and place in 5th division by point cap.

We are looking forward to our last competition day on June 17th. Until then, we’ll enjoy our Thursday training sessions more and more thanks to the break of spring!
