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 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).
R’damnit seems to feel at home in indoor division 3 as they have managed to secure their position once more last sunday in Wageningen after coming second in the first competition day. The knives were sharpened again this sunday for indoor competition day 2 in Wageningen. R’damnit played their first game against the organizing team; WAF. On the first competition day in Ijmuiden WAF proved to be a tough opponent, forcing R’damnit into a 8-8 draw. Both teams consisted of many of the same players that played on the first completion day so everyone was expecting a close game. R’damnit started strong and managed to take the lead after a few points, never letting WAF back into the game. We managed to win 13-7 which was quite a surprising start for us.
Early morning on a drizzling and grey Sunday in mid-November nine athletic Rotterdammers got underway to try their luck in the indoor frisbee competition (3rd Division). The destination was Ijmuiden, mostly known for its industrial harbor and steel production, but also home to the Vellesan Speedy’s, the hosts and eventual winners of this first indoor competition day. Although our team lacked much indoor experience, R’damnit came second after five exciting and close games.
