The Bozeman area offers numerous summer recreation activities, including the opportunity to spend these long summer evenings tossing around a Frisbee with a bunch of Bozos. I’m speaking, of course, of Bozeman’s Ultimate team, the Bozos. In brief, the object of this team sport is to advance the disc down the field, earning a score for each catch made within the end zone. Meanwhile, the other team is doing their best to block the toss or intercept the disc. Ultimate play is governed by “The Spirit of the Game”, which stresses sportsmanship, respect between players, and the joy of play. Ultimate is a non-contact game and is self-refereed, even at the World Championship level. In other words, if you bump someone or make a catch out of bounds, you call a foul on yourself.

The Bozos hosted the 18th-annual Bozofest this past Memorial Day weekend, and plan to participate in tournaments in Missoula, Salt Lake, and Jackson over the summer. The Bozos play pickup games on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings throughout the summer. All levels of players are welcome to join in, with a learn-as-you-play approach. Play starts around 6:30 at the north end of the MSU fields located at the corner of S. 7th and Kagy. Come early to warm up and practice your tossing techniques. Bring a light and a dark colored T-shirt, water, and soccer-type cleats if you have them. To learn more about local play, call Julie at 586-7806.
