Wengman Beach Ultimate 2016

The summer heat is on during the Wengman Beach Ultimate in Nasugbu Batangas held last weekend of March 12-13, 2016.  20 teams from the Philippine Flying Disc Association joined the fun under the sun on this ultimate event.  The Bautistas of JMJ Sports Training Services together with the Santiagos of Wengman sports Apparel hosted this event.

The event is well organised from start to finish.  Kudos to the no-nonsense organisers of this tournament!  Games started on time and the parties were well celebrated.  The venue had a wide beach area for all teams to do a round robin.  Also, each registered player were given an awesome, summer-ready kit.

The location is also convenient to go for restaurants, small malls and market.   However, the sand is lava hot during this time and Cassie Umali (Ms.  Gold’s Gym) made it even hotter.  Oh no, not 1 pair, not 2 but 3 pairs of socks were the necessary OOTD during this weekend.  Local vendors were happy to sell for 3 pairs for P100.

“5 on the line”  was the start call on this tourney.  Composed of 3 boys and 2 girls on each end zones, the 40 min game starts for the round robin, 50 mins for semis and 90 mins for the finals.

Away from the sun,  John Del Resort was the get together place for lunches and parties.  Each team had their Nipa huts for bonding and safe keeping of their bags.  Most of the players also resided here during the weekend.  The rooms are cozy, neat and clean.

The Saturday night Ultimate party with the Ultimate community is always a blast.  Jason Lopez, might have refused to run on the lava sand but he was definitely game on the party scene.  While the blurred photo is blurry for a reason.

After the tournament is the ultimate get together where everyone relaxes, get drunk and tease each other.  The pool area became the haven for this.  Fortunately, we still have  a decent photo of Gali Gonzaga here.   Official photographer Diego Zuluaga also had a big entrance on the pool’s slide.

Ultimate tournaments are always a great time because of awesome company no matter what the conditions are.  This tournament ended well with the #sepanx on everyone’s FB and IG feed.
