Sea Plastic (2012)
DiscNW is proud to announce the first beach ultimate tournament in Washington!
The event will take place on July 21-22 in Ocean Shores, WA.
There is room for 8-10 teams to play. Since beach games are shorter than "land" ultimate games, we will use a one day format for the team play on Saturday. On Sunday, we will mix up the rosters with a random hat draw.
The full schedule is posted here: http://www.discnw.org/events/SeaPlastic/Schedule.html
Format - Saturday
There will be a round robin between the five teams followed by a championship game between the top two teams.
Round 1: 10am - 11am
Round 2: 11:15am - 12:15am
Round 3: 12:30pm - 1:30pm
Round 4: 2pm - 3pm
Round 5: 3:15pm - 4:15pm
Finals: 4:30 - 5:30pm
Format - Sunday
There will be a hat draw on Sunday for the 2nd day of play. The specific format will be determined after teams are drawn. Players should expect to play a total of 3 games on Sunday.
The first round of play will take place at 10am. Please report to Tournament Central by 9:30am to recive your team assignment and schedule.
Online registration is now open. The team fee is $164 (includes sales tax). Payment may be made online or via check made payable to DiscNW, Attn: Beach, PO Box 85112, Settle, WA 98145.
Camping is available nearby at Ocean City State Park. Players will need to make their own arrangements for camping.
We were not able to secure a discounted block of hotel rooms this year, but there are several hotels in Ocean Shores that have vacancy this weekend.
Tournament organizers are working on a plan for amenities at the tournament. Some food (fruit and snacks) and shade (one pop up tent) will be provided on the beach for participants. Players should bring their own lunches and water bottles.
Unfortunately, we could not find space for a small social event on Saturday evening. Stay tuned for an update in case we can develop a plan B.
We wish to thank Five Ultimate for the use of their beach port-a-fields for this event. Thanks, Five!

This is a coed tournament with a 3:2 men:women gender ratio.
All games are played to 17 with the hard cap also at 17. The Hard Time Cap is on at 60 minutes after the round start time. At that Cap, finish the current point. If one team is ahead, the game is over. If the game is tied, teams will play one more point.
Each team gets 2 time outs per half. Time outs are 60 seconds long. Half time occurs when a team first scores 9 points.
Upside-down pulls are recommended but not requried.
The stall count is to 10.
The two point rule will be used: Two points are scored when a player throws a completed pass from within their defending endzone to within their attacking endzone.
There is no brick mark. If the pull lands out of bounds, the disc is to be put into play on the playing field proper closest to where the disc crossed went out of bounds. If the disc lands out of the back of the endzone, the disc is put into play on the front line of the endzone.
