Open Thread: Weekend Tournaments and Club Nationals

Big weekend for ultimate - Cold Fusion will be taking place in Eugene, OR and at the very same time (actually games began today) Club Nationals are taking place in Sarasota, FL.

So feel free to post results for, or talk about either tournament, anyone know high school players who are playing in club nationals? Already there have been some upsets, Revolver over DoG in pool play leading into power pools which begin tomorrow.

Any predictions from the crowd for either tournament? Score reporter has some ideas for Cold Fusion. On the club side can someone break the strangehold of the northwest? Its gonna be an interesting weekend, comment all the way through.

Keep it here folks.

[Edit 10/27 @ 11:03pm] - check out Alex DeFrondeville's recaps of nationals days one and two from the DoG perspective. The UPA also has writeups availiable at their site - http://club2006.upa.org . Cold Fusion action begins tomorrow, let everyone know whats going on if you've got information.
