The XEUCF 2013 took place in Bordeaux from Sept. 26 to 29th.
It was a marvelous event, with many intensive games on well prepared pitches.
We experienced all possible weather conditions, from terribly hot on the first two days, to lighting storms on Saturday and rain on Sunday.
When the storm was approaching, the TRG and the organisers applied the WFDF Appendix Rules (§B5), which clearly define how to manage such situations.
Unfortunately the highest price had to be paid by the Masters Finalists, that could not play the Final.
The TRG intensively discussed the situation, considering all possibilities, but could not find any rescheduling solution, which would not put at risk the safety of the players. The Rule B188.8.131.52 had to be applied, assigning the Title to the team, that won the Round Robin phase.
The EUF congratulates the medals Winners!
|Silver||Freespeed||U de Cologne||Croccali||UFO Tampere|
|Bronze||Bad Skid||Lotus||UFO Utrecht||Ultimate Vibration|
Congratulation to Ka-pow! (Open), Nice Bristols (Women), Cambridge (Mixed) and Caracals (Masters), that have been elected by the opponents as those teams, that mostly represent the Spirit of the Game values!
The final Standings and the Spirit Statistics are in the Games Session.
A big applause must go to the Organisers and Volunteers of 33Tours Bordeaux!
They put together a really well planned and enjoyable event. You could see the love and enthusiasm they put in offering the best service for the players.
They also perfectly managed the evacuation of the area when the storm was coming and showed good nerves when rescheduling all activities. Respect!
Enjoy the winter break and get ready for an other insensive EUCS season!
