GRAND MASTERS OF EAST HAMPTON

What, When, Where, and Who:
I am happy to announce that on May 21 and May 22, the eighth annual
Grand
Masters of East Hampton tournament will be held. If you are 40 or over
(or will
be this year) we want you to come, whether you have a team or not.
This is an
Open tournament and Women 35 and over (we are willing to bend this
rule for
those close) are also very, very welcome to play. We have great fields
smack in
the beautiful village of East Hampton, continually acclaimed as
America's most
beautiful main street and have several teams confirmed: Philly, NY,
Connecticut,
Brooklyn, Pelham, Baltimore, Washington, and others likely to confirm
soon.
The cost for this tournament will be approximately $60 per player,
which will cover the costs of fields, insurance, your freshly caught
lobster or fish dinner, your breakfast, and bonfire with keg beer at
the beach.

Accomodations:
Free camping, with indoor and outdoor shower, will be available at the
Peters home, situated on 20+ acres of land outside of Amagansett 10
minutes from the fields. My home is also two minutes from the best
ocean and bay beaches anywhere.

For those interested in fancier accommodations, please call me at
917-992-4730
and I will direct you to numerous hotels once I ascertain your needs.
The Ocean
Dunes, next to where the beach party will be held, is holding reduced
rate rooms
for the tournament. Mention "Frisbee Tournament." That way you can
just walk
down the beach to bed after the Beach Party.
East Hampton is one of the premier resort destinations in the world
and has
every sort of hotel accommodations one could ask for. East Hampton
House is
slightly less and the Ron Jo in Montauk is a real bargain.



Food:
We have made the decision to have food at the house rather than the
beach this
year. The choices are salmon, tuna, or lobster dinners. There will
also be
children's offerings of hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken fingers if
you want
them and order them before for an additional charge to be determined
(likely $10
or so).

Captains, I'd like to hear from you by the end of this week and no
later than
Wednesday of the tournament week as to your numbers and food choices.
So, need
to know the number of adult meals and how many will be salmon, tuna,
lobster.
Also need to know the number of children's dinners.

Anybody coming without a team will be assigned a team but must reserve
a dinner a week in advance by emailing or calling Sas Peters.
Logistics:
Teams are welcome to arrive either Friday evening or Saturday morning.

Saturday morning's play will not start until 11:00 am to allow those
folks who
need to travel on that day time to comfortably get there. The
Captain's meeting
will start at 10:00 am Saturday with three rounds of play on Saturday.
Dinner
starts at about 7:00pm at my house. After dinner we will head to the
beach for
keg beer, bonfire, stories, songs, and some special surprises and
foolishness.
The only mandatory activity will be your oversized yarn of some
Frisbee-related
activity told around the roaring campfire we will build on the beach.
Special
Note: Anybody who skinnydips in the surf and performs crowd pleasing
antics will
receive free beer.

Sunday will have at least three rounds of play with semis and finals
to
determine a champion.

Children and families are always welcome everywhere, so bring the
whole gang.
They will enjoy the villages of East Hampton and the surrounding towns
as there
is incredible shopping, yummy restaurants, beautiful dunes and
beaches, and fun
activities everywhere. East Hampton Main Beach is a 10 minute walk
from the
fields or a 2 minute drive. The oldest farm in America (Home Sweet
Home) is on
Main Street as is Harriet Beecher Stowe's house. History is everywhere
on Main
Street.

I demand impeccable behavior while we are at the fields please,
because you will
be in my village and representatives of our sport. Spectators will
come and go,
as will the local police, and all participants must be on their best
behavior.
This tournament will be covered by all kinds of media. There is no
room for
drugs or alcohol in the town of East Hampton and any player not
abiding by this
rule at the fields will be promptly ejected from the tournament.
Unfortunately,
dogs are not welcome at the fields. Once we get to the beach or my
home any rowdy behavior is fully acceptable. Littering will not be
tolerated and responsible cleanup at
the fields, beach and my land will be insisted upon. I want to be able
to hold
this tournament forever. Any destruction at my place will also not be
tolerated.
If you break it please own up and pay for it.


Yours Truly,

Alexander "Sas" Peters


Directions to fields:

Avoid rush hour at all costs (3:30-7pm on Friday night)

From NYC: LIE to exit 70. Make a right on Manorville Rd. and go to the
end.
Follow the road onto 27 East. 27 East at first is the Sunrise Highway
which is 4
Lanes. It will turn into the Montauk Highway which is 2 lanes. Do not
speed
above 50 mph on 27 East. The local cops make plenty on dumb tourists.
Let's not
have you be one of their victims. Take 27 East all the way to East
Hampton
Village. Make a left on Newtown Lane at the main stoplight. As you
pass
Waldbaums on your left you may want to stop and pick up Gatorade and
bananas.
Left at Railroad Ave. before the tracks, left into longterm parking.
Fields are
in front of you.
LIRR- Long Island Railroad East Hampton stop is a1 minute walk to
fields, which
are directly in front of you as you get off train. Walk towards Long
term
Parking. Fields are in front of you.

From Westchester and Western Connecticut: Take the Merrit, Hutch or 95
to the
Throgs Neck Bridge to the Cross Island Parkway to the LIE.

From the South (New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C.):
Take 95 North to 278 over the Goethals and The Verrazano Narrows
Bridge and then
either 278 (which is first the Gowanus and then the Brooklyn Queens
Expresssway
(BQE) to the LIE East or (for the more scenic and pleasant route) the
Belt
Parkway East to the Van Wyck North to the LIE.

From the North: Take the Cross Sound Ferry from New London,
Conn(reservations
are mandatory). To Orient Point. Follow Route 25 to signs to Shelter
Island
Ferry at Greenport. Once off ferry, follow 114 to other side of
Shelter Island
and take ferry to Sag Harbor. Follow 114 to 27 East. You must make
reservations
for the Cross Sound Ferry, but it is totally worth it. It is one of
the great
New England pleasures. The trip is truly a pleasure.

To my house:
Take 27 East to past East Hampton to Amagansett. Just before Mobil
Station make left onto Windmill Lane. Go to the end. Right onto Town
Lane. Make left on Stony Hill Road to 7th
Right at 86 Red Fox Run. Come all the way back. Do not bother my
neighbor, whose
house is at the front of my property.

To The Beach (only after 6pm): Right at Mobil Station on Indian Wells
Highway to
the Beach. Park and go to the right. We will be several hundred yards
down the
beach. Dogs are welcome on the beach after 6. Nasty dogs will not be
tolerated.
