That's odd because the seeding that I have from the tourney director is the exact same except the USA and Canada are switched.

Also, be aware this is the open side of things... any word on the women's?
i'd trust the tournament director on that one.

Australia Juniors Open Team will be playing the 05/06 Amherst Hurricanes (without their 4 Worlds Players, who will in Camp USA) on Thursday, August 10. We will be playing them in the evening, at ARHS, under the lights and we would love to get a big crowd there to welcome the Aussies and informally kick off WJUC in western Massachusetts. Word has it that the Aussie girls will also be playing a local ARHS girls team, but I don't know much about that yet.
NUTC has just finished their first week, and if you would like to read anything about it, go to ultimatetalk.com and look for George Cooke's blog. From my point of view, it was a great week. Campers came from all over the East and West Coasts, with a healthy dose of Chicago players also. And we also got our first camper from Tennessee!

Yep, that's what I have for the girls division.

I am pretty sure they must made a mistake when posting the boys division, because a. the schedule that the TD e-mailed has the US seeded first and b. there would be no reason to seed the US second as they are the defending champions.

It's obviously a wind-up on the part of the Australians.

is there a schedule to be seen anywhere? i'd like to come out and support, but need to plan out potential vacation days for that week...

Leonardo said...

you can download the schedule here:

and a general one here

www.rivative.net/ultimate/WJUC_week_schedule.doc

hope this helps. and yeah, from what I can tell, Kyle is right in that USA (open) is seeded first according to this schedule

That schedule looks very annoying for fans. All the teams play at the same time so you have to pick which game to watch (except the feature game of course), and there is 2 hour break that you have to wait before the next games start. Driving up there and paying for a week's worth of hotels because the schedule is unnecissarily drawn out sucks.

Oooops. I must have been tired when I put the seeding up on the Aussie site. I have adjusted it now. My excuse is that we are down under and everything is a little topsy turvy down here.

Look forward to seeing some of you in Amherst and Devens.

Go the Aussies!

Leonardo said...

i believe there are feature games in the 2 hour break time period where everyone can watch a match

Rumor has it that Israel's handler, Yosi Kakau (a Hopkins HUrt former captain), has dislocated his left arm.
