You might remember a while back I lamented the state of Gold Coast Ultimate.
Well, it seems that things have changed.
Stef from Gold Coast Griffith Uni (you probably met him at Halibut if not before - and by the way, how good was it to see G-Unit at Halibut, especially at the party) has got three regular sessions of Ultimate happening:
- Wednesday 7pm-8.30pm at the Broadbeach Soccer Club. Pickup for all and sundry, boasting 25 people the first week. And to make this the best Ultimate in Queensland, the Soccer Club opens it's bar until midnight with $2 VBs and a balcony that overlooks the fields. I think the hope is that eventually this will turn into the Gold Coast League or something?
- Thursday 7pm-8.30pm is the Griffith Uni training at the Musgrave Road Hockey Fields (I'm not sure how much past Uni Games this will happen).
- Sunday 3pm onward also has pickup at Owen Park, Southport.
This is of course on top of the upcoming Australian University Games
And Mr Brett Matzuka recently announced another of his fab beach tournaments down at Coolangatta - rego and stuff is here. I'm expecting one of these a month through to the end of the year?
Anyways, GO GOLD COAST!
