An'Sturm 2014

Hello Mrs. and Mr. Ultimate!

We are Nitro Circles - a young (in term of the team age, not of the team-members age ;) ) ultimate team from austria. Our homebase is in Poysdorf, a small town in lower austria located between vienna and brno. If you are an expert in good wine, you already know Poysdorf :)

After visiting few tournaments in austria, we thought it would be good to organize one on our own. And that's it:
An'Sturm 2014
5 vs 5, Soft Mixed (1 girl on the line)
Sportplatz Poysdorf (outdoor grass fields)
18. & 19.10.2014
Registration until: 30.9.2014
Please register via ffindr (http://ffindr.com/de/event/austria/an-sturm-2014)

The name An'Sturm is derived from a beverage. It is the "juice" of grapes which is already on the way to become excellent wine. So be prepared :)
The tournament will be outdoor, but sleeping, dinner, party, ... is organized indoor.

If you have any questions please use ansturm-nf7qSBShbu6HkQ09x9coOQ@public.gmane.org

CU at the tournament!

WJUC and OEYUC over


Hi Europe,

 
after traveling back from Lecco, and being back at work, here are the last results:
 
U17 open
In the Final, Great Britain was up against Austria, and went into the lead. Austria did not give up, hand a
nice Come back around half time; however, GBR got their act together and took gold, like in 2013. Silver
Austria, Bronze France.

U17 girls
As already written saturday morning, we saw a spectacular final, with the two final debutants Netherlands
and France. Netherlands gold, France silver, Austria Bronze. The classic powerhouses GER and GBR on
places 4 and 5.

U20 women
the bronze medal played was moved to saturday morning on an extra field by the dorms. In the pouring rain,
Colombia beat Austria convincingly; however Austria succeeds Germay as best European team. Germany in
5th place, with the satisfaction of having lost to Colombia wuith a very small margin (17:14).
The final in the stadium saw Canada versus USA, with a very convincing US team. Lots of physical power, hard
to believe this was juniors... the rain and win did lead to some suboptimal passes and more turnovers than
expected on the Canada side, giving the US an easy win (17:9).

U20 open
on the lower places, most placement games were sacrificed to the schedule delays, due to the weather.
The final saw again USA-CAN. The lawn in the stadium had survived the two earlier finals in the rain
surprisingly well, almost no damage. By now, the rain had almost stopped, but the ground was soaked, which
led to occasional slips.
Canada had not won in many years, the USA were always dominant in U20 open; the last non-USA win was Riga 2002,
when Canada beat Sweden (in the absence of the USA).
This time, Canada came out strong, got the D in the first point and the break. 2nd point, 2nd break; Canada up 2:0!
The teams then traded points to half time, 9:8 Canada, with Offense in the 2nd half. As the USA had been so
dominant in the past, and in the U20 women's final, most of the crowd went with the "underdog" Canada.
The second half saw more turnovers, and the USA worked the breaks back to equalize at 13:13 (if I remember
correctly. many specators believed that USA would now cruise over a slightly insecure Canada, but
actually both teams kept fighting fiercly. It got to a 16:16 universe, Canada on O. Under the eyes of
spactators by the completely filled main stands, the Canadians under huge pressure, they threw a long
bomb to a receiver cutting deep.
http://skydmagazine.com/2014/07/wjuc-2014-amazing-universe-point-canada-vs-usa-open-final/
The disc was hanging hight in the air when the receiver jumped up, to the shock of the audience; it seemed he
had jumped way to early, thereby passing under the disc. But Darren Wu just jumped higher than anyone had
imagined, seemed to stay airborne forever and safely pulled that disc down to this historic victory.

Congratulations Canada, and all the other winners. Congrats to all the many teams who got the money
together to come and play and enjoy this outstanding event, and especially to the spirit winners:

U17 girls: Austria
U17 open: Ireland
U20 women: Colombia
U20 Open: Colombia

It was a memorable experience for all participants, even though many detals of the organisations were not
fully accomplished at the start, and the weather conditions were challenging. What definitely needs to
be improved is the communication flow, especially in view of the fact the at WUCC there will be 3 times as
many participants.

Full results are available at http://www.worlds2014.org/junior/, full SOTG results to be published soon.

The 35 fields were under much stress due to the weather, but due game rotation and cancellations survived,
so that they should be well recovered for WUCC. Just pray for little rain and plenty of sunshine over the
next 10 days.

See ya all soon,

Chris
EUF youth committee

WJUC & EYUC Friday; first final played

Hello out there,
 
morning of finals day here.
 
Friday began with sunshine, and 15 matches scheduled; among those the 4 quarters in junior women. The sun held out, and so did the fields, so actually all matches could be played. Yippieh!
 
Canada beat Japan, and USA beat Russia quite safely. The other matches were closer; Austria, who had already beat the Euro champ Germany earlier, also managed to win against Italy to go to the top 4. In parallel, World champion Colombia took on Germany. This was a hard fought close match, in which Colombia could eventually get 2 breaks ahead to win 17:14.
CAN and USA then won their semis;  their final and the bronze medal match are scheduled today.
 
In U17 girls, Germany, after the huge disappointment of missing the final, could not get their motivation to a 100%, whereas their opponent Austria was hot to get this rematch for bronze, and took this medal. The final on the center court saw 2 teams that had never played this before. Inspired by the openeing ceremony with national anthems, they gave the audience an awesome match with hardly any drops or unforced errors, one of the best u17 girls matches I have ever witnessed. The sun was out, and Netherlands went into the lead for half time. They then were able to contorl this all the way to the end, 15:12 (or
 
Junior open had the semis; Austria beat France, and GB beat Germany. Again, the German team seemed too disappointed to fight hard enough in the brone medal game, wheras France displayed stability and goes home with a medal.
 
Junior open had 2 games per team. In the semis, USA beat Italy. Canada and Germany was played on the center court, and Germany really were out to surprise Canada, and held up to around 5:5; but Canada stepped up the pace even more, and play for gold today. The bronze medal game also began as a tough and very close fight, with just a small edge for GER at half time. The second half saw Germany cruising, though, so they go home proudly ith bronze, and both teams finished 1 place higher than 2012.
Lower placement matches coult not be played, due to the weather delays.
 
One seet story: the Dutch, with 1000 years experience at draining wet places, offered the grounds keeper to deepen the thainage ditches. he gave them shovels, and they recruited more players from other nations (especially Ireland, who also know about rain...). Together they worked until late on thursday, improving the drainage, which helped in prese ving the fields. So if we have the same siuation at WUCC, teams may want to grab a shovel before risking cancelled matches... anyway, a Great hand to the Netherlands initiative, and all helpers!
 
Gotta, run, U17 open finals stat soon. Get the streams on Skyd, or follow WING for live scoring.
 
Cheers,
 
Chris

WJUC & OEYUC days 3&4

Hi y'all,
 
I did not have wifi last night, thus no report. Both today and yesterday were very eventful, it will be hard for me to get it together now at 2.30am, but I try. The weather forecast just changed from "great flood" to no rain this night, so we may not need to go to the fields at 6am to asses weather play is possible... fingers crossed!
There has been a lot of rain: over the past few weeks (so the ground is well soaked), at the tournament start, wed evening... much more than usually here, making the otherwise perfect fields more fragile. But the ground keeper is very cooperative and helpful, allows us to play wherever possible without doing too much damage, and actually rapairing fields constantly.
 
Othe than that, the tournament also has some hiccups, as can be expected from an event this size. Most things function well, some do not. Looking at the immense effort that was put into this, the 50 things that may not be good need to be put into relation with 950 that are great, so many teams are very happy, others are a bit unnerved by some flaws.
 
Any, back to the action: let me try to remeber wednesday.
 
Junior Open: USA, CAN, GERE and ITA safely won the 4 pools, with straight wins. They then faced off one another in new seeding-games; USA was up 9:6 over Canada, Germany 11:6 over Italy, when a thunderstorm came nearer and play was stopped due to lighning danger, at around 6:30pm. The same was true for all pre-quarters, and several matches in other divisions.
 
Junior women: in the power pools, most games went according to seeding: USA beat GER and FIN, Colombia beat ITA and RUS, Canada beat Latvia and Great Britain. Austria, after beating Germany in the pool could also win over France and Japan. The big game was Russia beating Great Britain.
 
U17 women: the 2nd round robin was started. The exciting one was the evening match of the top2 FRA-NED, which was at 6:4 when the storm came.
 
U17 open: The power pool is led by Germany, with 3:0 wins. Austria beat France, leaving both at 2:1, followed by GBR and IRE at 1:2.
 
Then on wednesday evening, after the storm came incredible rain, leaving the fields soaking wet most of the day thursday. Thus, most matches had to be cancelled, with Simon Hill (WFDF) and myself getting plans B, C and more out of the drawer to try save the tournament, not knowing how many matches we would be able to play at all.
 
We did get some 16 games in on thursday. Most division formats were altered, to make up for less matches, and some of those changes are disadvantegeing certain unfortunate teams. Not a great position to be in... but mostly things go on very satisfactorily, most teams have one or more games less than originally scheduled.
 
In U17 girls, Germany and France played their 2nd round robin match, in which Germany had to make up for their earlier 4 points loss, and furthermore would not get a chance for a rematch against the Netherlands. The game ended 12:11 for Germany, so France gets the final tomorow against the Netherlands. GER plays Austria, who won against GBR.
 
U17 open: again most matches cancelled; tomorrow will see the semis GER-GBR and AUS-FRA, thus the top4 of 2013. This will be exciting to follow, all 4 teams have displayed amazing ultimate. Lower down, Israel and Italy get a recovery chance against Ireland and Sweden; Colombia and the Netherlands play for 9th.
 
Junior women:
Power pool x ended in a showcase match at the stadium, in which Canada beat Colombia 13:11. This morning has the Quarters USA-RUS, COL-GER, CAN-JAP and AUT-ITA. Semis later in the day; most placement games will need to get cancelled, as the tournament is over on saturday.
 
Junior open:
The few games today culminated in a floodlight game at the stadium with hundreds of frenzied spectators, who had already watched the COL-CAN women's game. Italy took on Israel in a quarter, both teams with huge support from the stands. Italy came out with a self assured body language and started 2:0 before Israel got on the board. Italy got more breaks and was up 9:5 at half time. Both teams were handling well, especially Italy's dynamic mix of give and goes with safe clap catches, and occasional hucks was convincing, but actually Israels style was similar. Israel actually made a good comeback, but Italy took the game eventually.
Thus, the semis on moday are USA-ITA and CAN-GER, who had beat ustria in quarters. The 2nd semi will be live on Skyd.
 
So follow the stream, or the tournament website or face book, and the scoring (all posted earlier this week.
Also streamed will be the final of the U17 girls friday 16:30, and the finals on saturday (U17 open at 11, U20 women at 13, U20 open at 15).
 
We are looking forward to an amazing stadium atmosphere again!
 
Chris
Do some sundance, everyone, we DO want to play as many matches as possile!
