Huckfest 2014 is coming up fast as summer quickly fades into fall!

Since I started playing Ultimate some 8 years ago with my son and his high school friends, I quickly realized that  this sport excels far beyond all others. The go, go, go, of the game, the good sportsmanship in the rules, and the camaraderie are unparalleled by any other sports.

Huckfest is quickly approaching. Clear your calendars on November 1, 2014. If you are unfamiliar with it, Huckfest is a costume (encouraged) tournament and is played at Douglas Walker Park, Byron Center, Mi.

I’m sorry to say that there won’t be a new Huckfest disc this year. We just couldn’t get our arrangements confirmed in time to make production timing work.

From the organizer:

Hi Everybody,
      Huckfest XVII will be held at Douglas Walker Park on Saturday Nov.1st. Doors to the park open at 8 am. Games start 9am. Douglas Walker Park is on 84th st SW  Byron Center, Mi for anyone who doesn’t know where it is by now.
When you email me for a bid, please include your teams makeup(men, coed, women) and where you think you’ll finish(top 8, next 8, lower 8, bottom 8).
        Seeing I lost several hundred dollars hosting Huckfest XVI, the entry fee has been increased to $150/team the day of the tournament, and $125/team if I receive your tournament fee by Wednesday Oct 22nd at :

John Schwarz
1201 California st. apt 405
San Francisco, Ca 94109

High School teams can have a bid for $70/team before 10/22, and $80 day of the tournament. I estimate Huckfest will cost $4000 to host this year. 32 teams X $125 =$4000. I look forward to seeing all your costumes this year. Let the onslaught of emails begin.

The weirdest guy on the team,
Johnny Shorts
