IHOP Frisbee Olympics!

August 14, 2017 by NCSU PR | 0 comments

UPDATE:  The rain held off. It was a ton of fun — thanks for coming out and playing. Enjoy your pancakes!

Celebrate the new semester with the NC State ultimate clubs and IHOP.  Win a free IHOP breakfast and NC State frisbees while meeting classmates and the players from the NC State men’s and women’s ultimate teams.

To enter the IHOP Frisbee Olympics, round up a 4-person team of your freshmen classmates. Each team is coed and must be 2-men and 2-women. The games are fun, short and involve a frisbee. After each 30-minute round prizes will be given out for the Gold, Silver and Bronze teams. The games are on Thursday, August 17th, with rounds at 6:00, 6:45 and 7:30pm. Your team can enter any round, with each round limited to 20 total teams.

Teams compete in 4 events of hand-eye coordination:

Ladder – throw and catch a frisbee 5-yards in a line to your teammates.

Relay Race – 20-yard run, catch and tag.

Square – how long can your team throw the frisbee 5-yards without dropping it?

Catch – throw and catch the frisbee with 1 hand — last team to drop the disc wins.

For each event beat the stacked team made up of college ultimate players (the Rabbit) and your team earns a bonus point for that event!

The 4-man team (2-men and 2-women) that scores the most points wins the Gold Medal!

Round up your team (2-men and 2-women) and we’ll see you Thursday night!

AC Regional Championships

The NC State Ultimate Club enters the 16-team 2017 Atlantic Coast Regional tournament as the #3 seed.

The tournament is May 6th and 7th in Axton, VA at the Smith River Soccer Complex. This year’s top 5 seeds are: UNC, UNC-W, NC State, William and Mary and Virginia Tech.

NC State’s new, elevated, camera platform, JinxCam 2.0, will be at the tournament live streaming 3-6 State games on Saturday and Sunday. All games will be available at:

https://www.youtube.com/ncstateultimateclub

The JinxCam schedule for Saturday is:

10:30AM NCSU vs. Maryland
12:00PM NCSU vs. UNC-Charlotte
1:30PM NCSU vs. Virginia
3:30PM pool play crossover game: A2 v C3

A complete schedule can be found here.

The top 3 finishers at the Regional tournament will qualify for the 2017 USAU College Championships in Mason, OH over Memorial Day Weekend.

Update: After winning its pool on Saturday 3-0, State found itself 2-games away from Nationals. Starting Sunday morning a favored State team played Virginia Tech. After taking half 8-4, a combination of nerves and a furious VT comeback saw State lose the game 13-12.

But State could still win out and secure the 3rd bid to Nationals. An heroic effort by the players and coaches saw State overcome crushing disappointment to sweep JMU and then W&M to make the 3/4 game and the “backdoor” finals.  There they played old State nemesis UNC-W, where a tired, mentally fatigued, State suffered a heavy defeat.

2017 NC High School Championships

The 2017 North Carolina Boy’s High School Championships is the weekend of April 29-30th in High Point, NC at the Phillips Soccer Complex.

The NC State JinxCam will be filming a semi-final game and Championship game on Sunday, starting at 1:30pm. The soccer complex doesn’t have a suitable internet connection and 4G LTE coverage at the complex is poor, but we are hoping to live stream the games thanks to support from Davis Martin Powell, Engineers and Surveyors.

These final games likely to feature teams from Carolina Friends, Chapel Hill, East Chapel Hill and other top high school programs from NC with players that will become future stars on the college level.

Regardless of whether the game is streamed live or is on-demand later, you can watch the game on NC State’s Youtube channel:
