Friday Night Registration: 7 Feb 6:30 – 11pm
Hanrahans Irish Bar on Sukhumvit soi 4 (3rd floor/terrace)
Get ready to run into some new and old ultimate geeks from all over the world. The registration table will close at 11pm but feel free to hang out & socialize away or to discuss strategies if you know your teams by then.(If you arr. late on Friday, registration will be available at the fields on Saturday morning).
Tournament Day 1: Saturday, 8 February (7:30am to 6pm)
First pull is at 8 am! You can nap during your byes. Expect 4 games per team for day 1 (with 3 byes =).
Food and drinks? Some fruits, bread/pb/pastries, rice porridge and rice soup will be provided for breakfast. For lunch, you will be treated to some excellent Thai dishes. Vegetarian (and non pork) options will be available. This year, we’ve added noodle soup for both days. Great cure for hangover and dehydration. For dinner a full bbq meal to us at the fields. Of course, water, soda and beer will be readily available. Also, there will be a massage tent for those sore folks (sorry, not free but cheap).
Continuing to be “green”! In the spirit of being green/environmental friendly, please bring an old bag from a past tournament to stuff your disc and water bottle in at the registration party (or Saturday morning). This is NOT a cost cutting attempt since the bags were donated in the past. Seriously, how many little tourney bags do you need? Also, please remember to bring a reusable water bottle. But if you don’t have one, Spice Roads, once again, donated some more bottles for the tourney.
We will have vans to transport people from the fields Sat afternoon only.
Saturday Night Party: 8 Feb 9pm-2am
at AmBar (rooftop bar, 8th Floor), Four Points Hotel (Sheraton Boutique) on Sukhumvit soi 15.
Only 100m down soi 15 from Sukhumvit rd, on the right side.
Theme: Ninja Cowboy Bear
Tournament Day 2: Sunday, 9 February (8am to 6pm)
Elimination play. (If you are the lucky top 3 teams from your pool, then, you’ll get to sleep in =) Expect 2-4 games, depend on how good your team is or how hard your team partied from the night before. (4 is a stretch, some consolation games may resort to a boat race/a spirit game).
Food and Drinks- expect pretty much the same process from the day before. However, there will be even more food after lunch. We will have more of those great tasting grilled chicken, papaya salad and sticky rice.
Please note: dinner and vans are NOT provided on Sunday.

Samitivej Spine Revision Center
Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital has a center that offers comprehensive medical services in the treatment of spinal diseases, normal spinal surgery, and revision spine surgery. The hospital has received the Clinical Care Program Certification (CCPC) for Low Back Pain from the Joint Commission International (JCI). This expertise has led the hospital to set up a “Revision Spine Center” or a Center to treat Failed Back Surgery Syndrome to correct disorders that arise from back surgeries. This is the first center of its kind in Thailand and Asia Pacific region to help patients.
A persistent back pain that occurs after a back surgery is called “Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS)”. Instead of recovering from the surgery, patients experience increasing discomfort and chronic pain at the back. Source statistics show that of the 200,000 back surgeries performed each year, 20 – 40 % result in various degrees of failed back surgery syndrome.
