WEEK IN REVIEW: Off to Kunming

That's right, we're leaving in about 2.5 hours for 22-degree Kunming (Celsius, of course). Will be back in five days or so.

PICTURES OF THE WEEK:


City Weekend continues showing us love... these photos are from an online slideshow.

GOOGLE GROUPS POST OF THE WEEK:


Betsy, 3/4:

beijing ultimate 2.0,

the year of the tiger has always been a good year for bejing ultimate. with revitalized leadership, fresh faces, and a new mantra (beat shanghai), betsy guarantees this will be the best year of the tiger so far.

WEEKLY ITEM #1: The Weekly Schedule

Every Wednesday, Pick Up, 7-9, BCIS
Every Sunday, Big Brother Practice, 2-5, Dulwich

note: no practice or pick-up this weekend, as everybody who’s anybody will be in kunming getting their jungle freak on with doc and his crowd-pleasers. nobody is excited about that, but everybody is excited about seeing what jim will do to get us all kicked out of the city during the party.

in lieu of practice, joe and sandy are coordinating a workout and throwing practice at chaoyang park, followed by disc golf and beer to replenish all those calories wasted during sprints.

WEEKLY ITEM #2: Upcoming Tournaments

March 5-6: Kunming Hat
March 27-28: Shenzhen Hat
April 2-3: Bali Open
April 3-4: Ningbo Hat
April 17-18: Tianjin Open
April 24-25: Singapore

July 4-10: World Championship in Prague

asian ultimate is incredible this year and there is so much ultimate to be played this spring. talk to your friends and captains, coordinate, make great things happen, bring trophies back to beijing. these are orders. do not disappoint betsy. she gives the world’s most devastating grundies.

now is the time in the weekly email when betsy gives her weekly shout outs and call outs. remember, you want to get shouted out, but you don't want to get called out.

a shout out to jim. jim is the new joe. joe is the old jim. doc is still boring. although tao may be the new doc. betsy is reserving judgement until after kunming when they will go head to head in a bland-off to end this once and for all.

a call out to kevin. you’re dangerously close to receiving the title “most likely to probably just chill out at home on a friday instead of partying until you vomit on jeff’s shoes”. betsy hopes you do something stupid in kunming to win everyone’s hearts back. jet lag is not an excuse. get your head out of your ass.

a shout out to shan. you’ve proved you can party. next step: you must pick a mate. betsy would suggest jehan, chaitkin, baby girl, jeff, joe, or jim. she would suggest them, except she’s already had them all, and they are bad. she does not envy you right now.

a call out to alicia. re: the battle for tao’s affections and everlasting adoration. besty wins. it’s probably for the best that you left while you could, before it got ugly. and it always gets ugly where tao and romance are concerned. have you ever seen the guy
dance? it’s like a stork wearing a full back brace with two broken legs. awkward.

a shout out to ellen. congrats on your triumphant return to the non-your-place party scene.

a call out to jeff’s shoes. clean yourselves up. you look and smell awful. betsy knows you are jeff’s shoes and all, but this is bad, even for him.

a shout out to baby girl and his streak of sixteen caps wins. betsy hasn’t seen anyone score that many times in a row since shanghai went exclusively to its “huck to gareth” offense last year.

WEEKLY ITEM #3: Lunch Time Poll

beijing ultimate has always been a place where people find their true selves. previous fan favorites include barbie, robo gabe, ken 2.0, toni with an i, a.k.a. peaches, blinkin, baby girl, mini-hulk, and jeff the mad fluff belly. now the community is divided, and betsy is dedicating this lunch time poll to solve the issue, once and for all. Which of the following will be the official nickname for michael chaitkin?

a) bacon

b) michael “the lactatin” chaitkin

c) the chait

d) michael “frosted flakin” chaitkin

e) the forsaken straight fakin shaken jamaican

as always, write-ins are appreciated.

cast your votes!

and finally, your moment of zen…
