An event designed to get ultimate frisbee players to reemerge from the woodwork was a success, said organizer Carrie McClelland.
The Ultimate Family Reunion, held Saturday at Takhini Elementary School welcomed new and old faces to enjoy their shared love of the game.
“It was fantastic,” said McClelland.
On a scorcher of a day, 17 people came out to play a game of ultimate frisbee.
A clinic for beginners led off the event and a game followed shortly after with the red team winning 13-5 over white.
The game was also part of the Art Hawkins Great Canadian Ultimate Game, which saw more than 25 games of ultimate frisbee played across Canada.
The event not only promotes the sport, but all the registration fees were donated to the Art Hawkins Development Fund, which helps make the sport more accessible those in “economically disadvantaged communities.”
The Whitehorse event was also deemed a success as three former participants of the sport came out to play.
Ultimate frisbee takes place Thursdays from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Takhini Elementary School and drop-ins are welcome.
McClelland encourages people to come out and do their best.
