R’damnit formed a highly feminine combined team with Force Elektro this weekend to end up 18th in Hargen beach tournament. The first day the wind proved to be above our skill level but on Sunday we were able to win 2 games and enjoy ourselves in the process. Thanks all for joining!
The photos of the first open competition day are online. You can find them at Photos and Videos. Enjoy.
We will have a General Members Meeting on January 16, 2014 at 21:00 in the canteen of WION. (Training will be a bit shorter, 19:00 – 20:30).
We played our first indoor competion matchday at November 24 with R’damnit.
The selection: Bas, Joep, Oscar, Julian, Aurelien and Vincent.
The opponents: Force Elektro 2, BFrisBee2’s, FC Airborn 2 and Force Elektro 3.
With glorious victories (respectively 15-1, 15-3, 14-7 and 14-6) we became winner of the 5th division!
Next matchday will be at January 26, 2014.
Can we also be successful in the 4th division??
The last day of the mixed competition. The question: can we stay in the 2nd division?
Unfortunately we couldn’t.
Next year we will try again, hopefully with a complete team of: R’damnit.
Last Sunday was Right To Play 2013.
We achieved a very nice Third place. Hopefully new player will join R’damnit, so we can at least defend or even gain some spots next year.
After a good start on the first competition day with 2 wins and 1 loss, we were eager to play our best on the second day as well. After a really early sundaymorning wake-up call and a two and a half hour drive, we arrived in Groningen to face the organizing team Gronical Dizziness 2 in the first match of the day. In almost perfect conditions with the sun shining on a wind still field, we started the game really strong. With our fast breakouts and tight marking we dominated the first half, with Oscar even scoring a Callahan! After the break started out a bit more sloppy and GD took advantage of our weak spots and came back a little, but we soon got ourselves together and finished the game off with a 15-6 win.
For the second match we were facing Veenendaal Tijgers who came from the 4th Division. Because they had only one sub, they played zone, wich turned out to be a tough exercise for us. Until the break we were evenly balanced with 7-7, and it was a really challenging match. After the break we were playing some tight handling, wearing our opponents out, and we started to dominate the game a bit more resulting in a 13-10 win. But if Veenendaal had a few more subs it could have been a really long and evenly match untill a winner came out.
With two wins in the pocket we knew we had a chance to promote to the 4th division. Only Panic was standing in our way to do this. In Rijswijk we already encountered Panic, and after a evenly matched game we came out on top with a 8-5 win so we knew they have some good players, and we had to do our best to beat them. But it wasn’t their day, and because of our speed, solid defenses, and quick breakouts we were soon on a very comfortable lead. When we were about 10 points ahead, Panic came back a few points to avoid a complete walkover, resulting in a 15-5 win for us at the end.
And with these 3 wins we assured a promotion to the 4th division! On the 26th of May we will see how we will do in a division higher!
We are one step further in creating the most awesome Ultimate club in the Netherlands 😉
We have a new logo, facebook page, and we updated the website!
Our primary goal was to get a steady group of people committed to attend to a weekly training in the first couple of months.
This went beyond our expectations. That’s why since the 1st of March 2013 we formed an official sports club, we signed up at the chamber of commerce and we signed in for the outdoor competition 2013.
With around 20 members, 15 competition players, and a steady group of roughly 10-15 players who attend to the weekly trainings we have a good base now. But obviously we would like to grow some more. So besides performing as good as possible in our first ever competition as R’damnit, we will be doing various promotional activities this year to make our name in the region, get people enthusiastic for Ultimate, and enlarge our memberships.
So keep an eye on our website and our R’damnit facebook page for these activities.
