Century Club without the Beer

Hey Folks,

I'm close. I'm really close. Depending on how you count I'm actually there. There's one stat that I'm actually interested in over a career. Participating in 100 Ultimate tournaments. I think it's such a big thing that I'm going to design and make a badge. Then, when people get to their 100th tournament I'll give them the badge (maybe sell them).

Pictured Above: Sasha Necakov catching over Ian Brooks at one of the best co-ed parties in Canada - Gender Blender. I've been 5 times and oh, what a party.

I think 100 tournaments is significant. 17 weekends a year (over 6 years), 700 games, 1000 hours of ultimate, 60000 minutes, 10000 throws, 150 drops, 200 layouts, and 1 callahan. That's lots of tournaments, and if anything people deserve a cool badge.

UPDATE: As of this weekend I now have 2 callahans!!!

Wow that is a scary thought. I am pretty sure I am way above 100. Yikes. With the one stupid year of 23 tournies, I would have only had to average around 6 tournies a year for the other 11 years of touring, so I am pretty sure I am made the 100 mark (probably closer to 130). Yikes. I need to stop playing!

Hey Wartank,

My rules were two day or greater tournaments. I guess you could combo one day tournaments together.

As for all nighters, I didn't include the one I went to (and won).
