This is a new event this year put on by Without Limits. This is the third tournament in Without Limits' series at the Smith River Sports Complex. It was created in response to the demand for another February tournament in the Ultimate frisbee community. The hope of the organizers is to bring another accessible playing opportunity to teams on the East Coast and to raise money to offset the costs of some of our developmental opportunities such as Layouts.
