Attention Athletes: Don’t miss the second annual River City Frisbee Party! It is back by popular complaint and will be more fun than last year. Some details are below and more will follow and be posted on the Facebooks.
LOCATION: Playfair Park, next to Splash Montana
SCHEDULE/FORMAT: There will be a potluck breakfast at 8 am, with games starting at 9am. Depending on numbers, we will aim for four to six teams, with a round robin play format.
POST-GAME PLAN: After games finish (3ish), we will head over to Splash Montana to ride the slides and lazy river before we go downtown to boogie our butts off at the River City Roots Fest. The headliner, Railroad Earth, starts at 8:30. Here’s a link to the full line-up:
COST: $10 gets your name in the hat, access into the water park, field food, beer, and all of the fun you can handle. WHAT A DEAL!?!

Its been a busy spring for Missoula Ultimate. Both the Mens and Womens college squads competed in the USAU College Regionals, valiantly representing our fair city. Spring League completed its 13th season with the Quiet Cowboys defeating Those Fracking Guys in a rain soaked championship game in classic MUSL form. Bozofest over memorial day weekend had 2 Missoula-laden squads competing against the best in the Northwest in uncharacteristically beautiful weather, with our very own Mental Toss Flycoons bringin home Larry…..again. That pretty much wraps up the spring. Summer is upon us. Riverbowl pickup is back in action on Wednesday evenings, so c’mon down.
Let your imaginations run wild and we will have teams to celebrate every stereotype of Montanans and Montana culture. From the Bro-Brahs of Bozeman, the fans of Griz Nation and the Flathead Militia, the possibilities are endless.
The annual Missoula Ultimate Federation Halloween Hat Tournament will be held Saturday, November 3rd at McCormick Park! Potluck breakfast and keg tapping will commence at 9:00, teams will be drawn from the hat at 10:00, and games will start shortly thereafter. In keeping with tradition, there will be prizes for best costume and merciless heckling for those without. Stay tuned for more details!

Missoula Ultimate will be hosting a hat tournament on August 25th to celebrate friends, family, freedom and music! Come on down to the first River City Ultimate Music Fest at Playfair Park. We will play a hat style tournament in the morning, hit Splash Montana in the afternoon and then the River City Roots fest for the rest of the weekend! What better way to welcome the students back to Missoula? See the details below.
What: River Shitty Shit Show
When: August 25th, 9:00am
Where: Playfair Park, Missoula, MT
Format: Hat Tournament
Extras: For anyone who has been to the Revelstoke Ultimate tournament, we are going to kick this up a notch. We will play disc in the morning, hit the waterpark in the afternoon and then go to the River City Roots festival in the evening. All this for only $10! If that isn’t enough, we will throw in a few kegs to boot! (Not literally boot, Rowdy). Check out the Facebook page for info updated regularly. Also, check out the lineup for the River City Roots Fest…it is going to be sweet. All are welcome!
Thanks to those who took the time to fill out the surveys about pickup. One thing was very clear from the responses, Wednesday will remain the premiere night for pickup. Almost everyone said Wednesday is the best night if they were to only play once a week.
About half of the respondents said they would like to play only once a week. Most of the other half would play twice and some diehards would play every m’fing day of the week if it were possible. What does this mean? It means we should be guaranteed to have one well attended game of pickup every week on Wednesday evenings.
There maybe enough interest to have a second weekly game. The competitive team practices Tuesday, potentially making Friday a more appealing choice than Monday. But, I will leave that in the hands of those players who show up on WEdnesdsays to decide.
So in the shell of a small nut: Wednesday night is pickup night. People want a time? well start playing at 630. Other nights to be determined at the discretion of “the regulars”
Getting the word out. Chug-for-Charity for Missoula Ultimate Frisbee Federation at Draught Works this TUESDAY, MAY 22.

Ultimate In 10 Simple Rules:

2. Initiate Play: Each point begins with both teams lining up on the front of their respective end zone line. The defense throws (“pulls”) the disc to the offense. A regulation game has seven players per team.
