Ultimate - Mars Attaque !



This weekend (March 18th and 19th), Quebec City will be hosting the "Ultimate - Mars Attaque" tournament at Expocité , in the Pavillons des Bovins. You can find more info on the official website; http://www.ultimatequebec.ca/MarsAttaque/MA.php

For those who don't know about Ultimate, here's a brief summary;

Ultimate
(often called Ultimate Frisbee) is a competitive non-contact team sport played with a flying disc. The object of the game is to score points by passing the disc into the opposing endzone, similar to American Football. Players may not run while holding the disc. The game was invented in 1968 as an evening pastime. Ultimate is distinguished by its Spirit of the Game - the principles of fair play, sportsmanship, and the joy of play. (Source: Wikipedia)
