Yes we are still here, yes we are ready to play, but – no, we did not even see the fields. Unfortunately there was a lot of rain in the last few days and the tournament directors had to cancel all Sunday games. And the weather proofed them right. When we woke up in the morning it was already raining and did not end until 2 pm. Walking outside was no fun so we decided to stay inside. While playing some games watching TV or simply talking, everybody was enjoying the time spent together with their teammates.
When all of us had accepted the weather to be rainy all day, the rain suddenly stopped and the sun showed up immediately. In no more than 20 minutes the summer was back, so the plans for the afternoon were about to be changed. The rain gear was switched for shorts and the small soccer area here at our dormitories was entered from the Bad Skid squat. Some of the campers here were fascinated from the flying discs. OK - you might be right - there could have been some more spectators if the Live-Stream game took place, but we were happy to get the chance to do some sports today. After some sweating the sun, right next to the lake, you could easily imagine what happened next. To practice for the upcoming games we did a little swim-race, which might have been the only real competition around Lecco today.
Cool and perfectly relaxed we are now looking forward for some Ultimate tomorrow. As the tournament director said, there will be games, regardless of the weather and field conditions. The Monday schedule will stay unaltered so our first game will be at 13.00 o’ clock against Relámpagos Ultimate Club and at 17.00 o’ clock against CUSB from Bologna.
We try to keep you as updated as possible, but we don’t know about the Wifi-situation at the fields yet.
Bad Skid – It’s so f****** ready
Dear Bad Skid Fans,
The biggest tournament in the history of Bad Skid is about to start. Everybody arrived in Lecco today, some of us even in the last week. The housing is great, directly next to the lake. Everybody has got a bed to sleep and a place to stay for the whole next week. And what might be the most important thing: The new shirts also made their way down to Italy. To say it easily: Bad Skid is ready for worlds. Sadly we got the news, that the fields are in a bad condition, so there will be NO GAMES on Sunday. Even our game against Comunidad el Oso, witch was supposed to be streamed live by SkyD-Magazine was cancelled and rescheduled to Tuesday.
We are now heading to a small training session. Hopefully there will be more information about the schedule and no more delays. In any case we will keep informing you the whole week about what’s going on here in Lecco. So keep looking at our homepage and visit our Facebook-Fanpage.
Let the games begin !
Two week after playing London Calling, the biggest tournament in Europe (number of teams), Bad Skid headed to Amsterdam to play the biggest Ultimate festival in Europe Windmill Windup. With Bad Skid, almost every European team which is going to WUCC this year was there. Bad Skid – last year’s finalist and 2nd seed in the prediction contest – came as one of favorites for the final. And after a quarter-final loss in London they wanted to fulfill this expectation.
