It’s a tournament like no udder.

Nanaimo’s Udderbowl tournament this past weekend marked the start of ultimate Frisbee season in the city.

The tourney, hosted by the Nanaimo Ultimate Association at the McGirr Sports Fields, attracted teams from as far away as Seattle.

“I think it went really well,” said Allison Schein, one of the association’s directors. “We got feedback from some of the visiting teams that they had a lot of fun here.”

Stache, a team from Vancouver, won the A pool, defeating Victoria’s Ultimate Ninjas. The B pool final involved two other Vancouver teams, with Cow Cow Ka-Pow beating Like a Simile. Milk Truck, a Seattle entry, won Udderbowl’s Spirit Award.

The Nanaimo Ultimate Association is now looking for newcomers to sign up for a summer league that starts in May.

"It's a great way to get exercise and hang out with your friends. We're a very welcoming community," Schein said. "Lots of people who maybe tried other sports but didn't love them end up really loving ultimate … It's just a lot of fun."
