2016-06-20 16:12:12 GMT
While you have clearly attained a surreal level of throwing plastic at all kinds of angles, we wonder, can you rise to the challenge of applying your talents to the one and only Copa Cabana?
- three meals
- two days of playing the sport you love
- two nights of themed camping & parties
- and countless memories with the Copa community
1. It's loose mixed. That means 1 woman on the line but feel free to bring

3. FB Event:

We will admit that we opened our registration later than usual and as such we have to close it earlier than usual as well. So we will be closing the registration for teams at the end of June but you have another month to add players. We just need to know how many teams to accommodate!
Lastly... if you have any stories from Copa Cabana's past... please write them to us at this email address. We will be giving a prize for the best story at the end of June!
Many thanks and we hope you're all as pumped as we are!
ps. see the original email below for a huge description of the Copa!
The Copa Cabana is back.
Aug. 13th/14th (Party starts on the 12th)
Now the long version.
We'd like to start with an apology. Partly for announcing this on Facebook before Britdisc but also for just not being there. For the fresher faces of UK Ultimate, from 2001 to 2010 there was an Ultimate event in the UK arguably without rival. The Copa Cabana combined high level of play with a non-stop festival atmosphere that exceeded expectations year upon year. If not for the Nottingham City Council's decision to rebuild the grounds for new flood defenses and a shiny new pavilion, it would have continued. That meant no Copa from 2011 to 2015. We're sorry.
It's been a long wait, but we are back. Acknowledging that the pressure is on to continue our trend of innovating Ultimate events, combined with the knowledge that in our absence other events have risen to fill the void, understand that our appetite to continue where we left off is large and we intend to provide something very special.
To do this we have combined forces with The Ultimate Experience out of Toronto, Canada. The makers of the legendary Gender Blender event. They have run hundreds (really!) of epic events and had just the pedigree to turn up the dial on the Copa.
The Copa Cabana 2016 is on. This year will feature no less than...
> On-site central camping with allocated team areas at the Nottingham Moderns Rugby Club. We've hired out the entire club and the grounds just to host the party and camping. Only the final will be played here on Sunday.
> Competitions for the best themed/dressed camping area will be awarded on Friday night.
> Warm up festivities and games. The judging and awarding of the best camping area theme (Gender Blender style – examples of past camping area themes have been treadmill-powered luge and medieval jousting). Watch this event page for more exciting ideas.
> Party Number 1 in the Big-Top starting at MIDNIGHT! 8000 watts of face melting glory will be raging from the Copa Cabana stage as a DJ battle brings the Copa Cabana kicking and screaming back to life! The party ends when the last person leaves. Do you think you can win the party?
> Dinner is on us! Keep the vibe going and stay at the camping/party zone for some food.
> More Gender Blender style fun as we invite everyone to get involved with our WFDF approved World Record Event! Details to come. A additional skills competition for fastest man, fastest woman and the ever popular throw-run-catch distance competition as well!
> MIDNIGHT approaches once again... the darkened Copa Cabana big top shows a flicker of light. The excitement is palpable. Sure you over did it a bit last night but you've downed some sort of kale smoothie and sucked down one of those foil sugar things athletes eat (because you’re an athlete). You’re recovered and ready. A bass note from the big top resonates through your chest…
> the DJ extravaganza culminates in a RAVE themed finale in the big top! Bring your vapo-rub, water-guns, your smiling faces and your glow sticks (check your captains pack) and get ready to pump up the volume!
> Well I guess we'd better finish this Ultimate tournament part shouldn’t we. Breakfast again, packed lunches... finish with an odd number and get back to the club to wind down, watch the finals on the show pitch, dismantle the best camping area ever and check Facebook to see what the hell you did last night before searching Google for how to get body paint out of your xxx.
> Registration is open! Go there now!
> The Ultimate Experience has designed a custom registration system for us.
> Here's the brief how-to on this new system.
> Captains register & create the team
> Invite your team to your roster by adding their name and email
> Each person on your roster will get an email with their own custom link to pay and sign the damage and photography waiver
> Payment is a player fee only which each player completes independently. No more fronting all the money yourself and collecting money from players.
> They pay for themselves.
> There is no team fee.
> The player fee this year is £58..
> Expect it to be awesome.
> August is officially Ultimate Month!
