Apocalypse Tournament 2003

Reported by:
Andrew Saunders

Arriving at around 11:15pm we were surprised to find other teams camping as well, we were also surprised to find out how bad the bugs were. Shortly after starting to enjoy our beverages we were even more surprised to find a fire pit with kindling and precut wood nearby. Most of the other teams were going to bed when Tylenol showed up, everyone talked for a while. Before we know it, it's 4:30am and all the beer is gone, which makes for an interesting second day...

The sun was bright and hotter then hell, but you couldn't ask for a more perfect day. With the heat the bugs were kept entirely at bay, and with little wind the play would be unhindered. Fifteen teams arrived, five in the novice and ten in the amateur.

The reffing was excellent, the refs were on top of practically everything that transpired on the field, unfortunately they seemed to have the bad habit of following/staring at players who were trying to move unnoticed on the field. There seemed to be no post-game bitching because of calls, which is a statement in itself. Another pleasing thing was the canteen and the selection of food offered which included both breakfast and lunch items. In general this tournament gave the impression of being geared towards the comfort and enjoyment of the players.

In the amateur prelims the bottom five teams were separated by only 20 points total which clearly separated the more skilled players. The finals were entertaining to watch since most teams were aggressive towards the end, considering the field layout sweet spotting would keep most teams cautious at the beginning. ASA I would take a commanding win with a perfect score of 300, nice.

During the awards the ceremony when ASA I was giving their speech, they got nailed with a shower of water three times in a row. It was hilarious to watch the two players see it coming after the first hosing and push the third guy into it. This was overall a great tournament, everything ran in a timely manner, the paint was round and the teams were personable. Granted I couldn't understand half of what was said, but that's my fault ;)
