Big news everyone! Yesterday R’damnit went undefeated (4-0-0) in the first indoor competition of the 2015-16 season. We were joined by Tilburg’s own Flying High, NUTS, Vellesan Speedy’s, and Panic.
I think I speak for all when I say that it was a physically demanding competition; but, what we may have lacked in youth, we certainly made up for in offensive chemistry and tireless defense. Here are the quick stats:
R’Damnit (15) – Flying Hight (7)
R’Damnit (9) – Vellesan Speedy’s (8)
R’Damnit (13) – Panic (7)
R’Damnit (11) – NUTS (5)
Although the point differential increased in the latter two games, it does not reflect the intensity of the matches — (this is especially the case for NUTS, who despite scoring the least against us, was probably the most capable of exploiting our defense).
Thanks to everyone for showing great spirit and bringing some high-caliber ultimate. If we continue this trend R’Damnit will become a solid club team.
To finalize the 3th year of the club R’damnit a members meeting is planned on Thursday October 15, 2015 at 21:00. We will send you more details (agenda, minutes, etc) at a later time.
Your presence is highly appreciated at this meeting!

Rotterdamn’it played last weekend the Hargen Beach Tournament. The roster included three Force players (Robbert, Anouk and Laurens) and Marijn that joined us again.
We were able to some how gather most of the team 5 minutes before the first match against Viva l’Olandesina. Most of us did not have the possibility to train our throws before getting in to the game, which lead to many imprecisions in the early minutes of the match that left us with a 0-4 against. From that moment on we started trading points to end with a disappointing 4-7, leaving everyone wondering what the result would have been if this was the second game instead of the second.

After two very sunny outdoor competition days (one even including winning the division and lots of beer!) it was probably some sort of retributive justice that on this third day in the outdoor competition we enjoyed the best of Dutch summer: the heavens opened and with wind, rain and sub-20°C temperatures it promised to be a mud fight rather than a bright day of Ultimate.

Even with our new fear inspring “Eat the babies”-yell, we started traditionally slow against organizing Flying High.
Although we started out trading points, our O had to work harder to convert our points compared to the opponets offence. Forcing a break against the well thrown hucks from tilburg proved difficult, with r’damnit never in the lead.
In the end it appeared that Flying High woke up quicker then we did and they took victory with 9-11.
Things looking grim for the rest of the day as the devision was very well matched.

Last Saturday Force Elektro joined forces with Rotterdamn’it in a Showcase game in the quarter breaks of the last game of the regular season of Challenge Rotterdam Basketball.
Last Sunday on a very sunny pitch in Berkel-Enschot the first round in the 4th division of the outdoor competition 2015 kicked off. Everybody (14 frisbee fanatics) on time, coffee&cake, streched and properly warmed up. Ready for our first match against the organizing team Flying High. That warming up paid off. With a good offence and a pressure defence we took the lead by half time leading 7-1. Second half Flying High woke up and took some points back but not enough to get our victory in trouble. Ending in 11-5.

On January 25th R’damnit joined the 3rd Indoor Competition this season. With ten players, not only numerical strong, but also with a good mixture between very experienced players and some indoor newcomers, felt R’damnit confident to succeed in the tournament. This time Veneendaal, respectively their team ‘Tigers’ hosted the exciting tournament.
Due the relatively high number of players, the team decided to divide into defense and offense. So after every point won or lost, the whole team would switch. And this tactics turned out to be very effective. R’damnit won the first game against UFO (Utrecht).
