Team name: Rainbow Sevens
Finishing postion: 19th of 25 (4 better than seeding)
This was basically a Sydney Uni team which needed a couple of extra players, and I joined them only for the weekend (I missed the first day). Clad in tie-dyed shirts we took on the best of them and got pantsed, but we played well at the lower level and took it to some of the better teams. For the first time ever I was one of the most experienced players on the team, and also one of the tallest. I was stoked to be able to play deep in zone defence for once.
The theme of the party was halloween, which was just a good excuse for everyone to get dressed up. A lot of great photos resulted. It was also a good opportunity to see the people I had met in Tassie again, and get a good bit of dance floor action.
I did my ankle in the last game of the last day, which was a bit of a bummer, and was a bit sore and tired when I got home. A small consolation for this was almost not making it onto a plane, then for some reason being upgraded to business. I didn't change my shirt before the flight, so I managed to fly business in a very ugly smelly tie-dye t-shirt.
