What a gorgeous night for pickup last night…and what a crowd! Over 30 folks, ranging from new to old and young to…old. Met a visitor from Austria, and a player from Rhode Island. Reminded me of the days not too long ago when we had strong pickup games Monday-Wednesday-Friday. And the ladies – well they rocked the house more than Laura Ingraham’s call for Cruz to endorse.
Remember, Missoula’s Ultimate community comes together on Wednesday evenings, 6:30 to dusk, for awesome pick up games at the Riverbowl. And if that’s not enough, Hellgate High School’s team welcomes all to a casual pickup game on Wednesday evenings at 830P at Pineview Park in the Rattlesnake.
