Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. any chance there will be a PrimalCon on the east coast at some point??

  5. Man I wish the weather was like that in Oregon right now…WHERE’S MY SPRING!

    • Totally! I hear it may not arrive until June. :)

    • My spring won’t be here til June also.
      I’ve learned to improvise.
      I am MOST envious of the Ultimate games as I used to play “back in the day” when it was still kinda new :)

  7. Great that they enjoyed throwing the disc, and I’m not criticizing that. But if anyone not familiar with the game watches that vid and thinks that’s how the it’s played, just take a look at this for comparison to competitive Ultimate. ulti highlights

    • It was a crowded field and most of us were new to the game but we had a blast and everyone got to participate which was the whole point. There were some great plays and athletic talent on display, even by novices.

      • Agreed 100%! Ultimate frisbee was an absolute blast. Well, evetything was!

        Again, simply meeting people who will be lifelong friends was well worth the cost of it all. All the activities, food, presenters, perfect weather, ocean plunge was an added bonus.

      • Definitely, Dave. Like I said, no criticism. Mark’s blog is really popular and I just wanted people who might get their first exposure to the sport through this post to see another side of it.

  8. I was just wondering what the survivor challenge consisted of?

  9. Timothy, the gentleman with the flag in Team Yellow’s group photo, the look on his face is priceless!
