BACKGROUND: ”I’m sort of Capt. Coordinator,” says Jay Vilar, the seemingly hesitant leader of UlitmateOut. ”This is the first time I’ve played ultimate Frisbee. I got an e-mail from a friend last spring saying there was gay ultimate Frisbee, and I fell in love with the sport.” Today, Vilar says he’s gotten pretty good at it, and adds that he’s hoping others who may have some ultimate Frisbee talent will consider joining the team so that they may begin competing widely.
NEXT EVENT: Ultimate Frisbee game, Saturday, Sept. 17. Place and time TBD.
