After a successful inaugural season, the Principality of Sealand returned to the UK mixed Tour to do battle with their English foes. In 2009 Glasgow managed to send a team to every event, in 2010 we managed to send 2!
Tour 1 began brightly with wins over Don’t Let Go and BAF that put the Sealanders within touching distance of the semi finals. In what was effectively a quarter, Bear Cavalry ran out 6-0 up in the first half. A brave fight back to 9-8 was followed by a mammoth point lasting over 10 minutes. Despite getting the disc over the goal line twice, it was Bears that finally converted and took the win and Sealands Sunday slump relegated them to 10th. Tour 2 saw the Principality slip back in to the top eight following another thrilling comeback and sudden death victory (by now a trademark) against Peeps. 7th overall. Nationals was another mixed bag of results, we had another close game against Bears but threw it away in the second half and took Brighton to sudden death in our best performance of the season. So close to making semi-finals again but tired legs on Sunday and we finished 11th.
This years foreign adventure took us to Amsterdam for 6 days of debauchery and the Windmill Windup tournament. 5 of our 8 games went to sudden death, again we lost narrowly to semi final contenders and ended 11th. The final victory against Ultimate Delux was one of the most spirited performances ever witnessed on the Frisbee field.
In 2011 we will compete in the mixed tour as Glasgow and return to Windmill for more fun and games. However, this may not be the last you see of the Principality…
