Newcastle at the National Championships

This weekend is the Australian National championships for Ultimate Frisbee. It is being held in Brisbane and runs from Friday through to Monday. Newcastle has 2 teams competing, the Sugar Magnolias in the womens division and I-Beam in the opens. I-Beam is the reigning nCarnational champion and both teams have been training hard for the last few months and will be looking to challenge for the title. You can get more information on the tournament website http://auc2011.quda.org/ or alternatively http://forcesideline.com/ will be providing updates throughout the weekend. I will also be posting updates via twitter http://twitter.com/NewiUlti. For those who are awake early tomorrow (Thursday) morning I will also be doing an interview on abc local radio with Aaron Kearney at 6:20. If you are awake at that hour, make sure you tune in.

Don't forget the final of the Newcastle summer 5-a-side league tonight. There will be a BBQ provided during the game but BYO drinks. The game will start at 7:15. There will also be placing games for all other teams not in the final.
