The Clown kicked off spring season with the yearly pilgrimage south to  Georgia to play in the second session of the High Tide Tournament. The tournament moved to Jekyll Island, and play was split over two fields. Hungover and mixed squad Clown played well for what ammounted to the first outdoor practice of the year, and beat Central Michigan and a mixed Georgetown team. Adjusting to the new location was difficult (two houses) but was made easier by the visit of alumni Schwinn and Wonder (’08). There are a lot of sweet playing photos in the Clown flickr:

And most importantly, Paris and Alvin won blind man’s beer with a time of 1:54, beating Pickett and Hufflepuff by 3 seconds.

The Clown then returned home for indoor practice and a shit-ton of tournaments. The first tournament was Yale Cup. In poor (windy) conditions, the Clown went 2-4, getting much better as the tournament went on. The Clown then went (for the first time) to Huckbuddy Invitational and facing similar poor conditions the Clown went 4-4.

The B/Shitbox team fought hangovers and went to Unity, Maine, for the only tournament before sectionals. Sober team went 4-1 and drunk team doesn’t remember the score.

Sectionals was a new challenge for this year’s Clown, still adjusting to the loss of its top 7 players (SWAS). A-Side lost heartbreakers to UMF, UNH and Dal, not making regionals this year.

While missing regionals was heartbreaking, it allowed the whole team to be around when alums came to visit on occasion of Seabass’s trek to the east coast for some robot soccer action. An impromptu OFC-Clown game was started, and the younger, faster Clown won the game, although Nutz defeated Dusty bottoms in the halftime disc. The Clown was grateful to see Nutz, Flower, Raymond, Chun Li, A-Cup, Vibe, Gerber, Rodeo, Rabbit, Seabass and Mojo all playing again.

The next weekend, the Clown got all dressed up for the All Sports Dinner, but this time actually had an occasion to attend. This year captains Chauncey and Hummer (’09) received the Harvey award for JV or Club team leadership. As Mojo, who nominated all the captians says:

“this is not just an award for them individually, but also an award for all of the Chaos and Clown community.  Over the last decade, the teams have grown to have an enormous influence on the campus, and your accomplishments on and off the field are, in effect, being acknowledged in these awards.  I hope you see these awards as yours too.”

And in the most important tournament, Chun Li and Silent Bob (#1 seed) returned to campus to beat Paris and Tum Tum (#3 seed) in the Third Tri-Annual Beer Die Tournament. The next tournament will likely be the RB Stadium Invitational.

Finally, welcome Dusty and Pockets as the Clown Junior Captains, Squirtle and Neidermeyer become the Senior Captians. And congrats to the Class of ’09.

After a week of postponement due to inclement weather, the Clown (and lady clown) ventured out into the cold to play some ultimate in apparently clement weather (20 degrees, rock hard fields and blowing wind)  The Clown broke into three teams: Team Corporate (featuring alums Stiffy, Rodeo, Chun Li and Vibe), and poorly dressed X and Y teams.

Team Corporate faced Herniated Disc, a team made up of Animal, family and friends first. Finding the best way to work in the freezing cold, Team Corporate beat Herniated Disc. Next was Colby, who was defeated in a strong game and the wily use of push and trap in the cup. Losing to Dead Reckoning, Team Corporate found solace in leaving early and eating Big Top sandwiches.

Clown X and Y teams both won at least one game, and the winner, Stew, donated their turkey to the TedFord shelter.

There are a few pictures and some more from fall sectionals up on the stoned clown flickr group.

Sectionals

This weekend the Clown will be bringing Stoned Clown, Boned Clown and Credit/D/Fail clown for fall sectionals. Since Massachusetts is set to get rained on heavily we will be playing on field turf. The schedule is still not up but the clown hopes to tighten up from their sloppier performance at Clambake and use fire coupled with young legs to hopefully get some wins.

Seeing that the schedule isn’t up yet, there’s no doubt the score reporter will be any better. But do not fear, the Clown now has a twitter account that will give little updates and final scores. Start following on twitter or just check out this LINK
