Announcing: India Hat Tournament, Feb. 4-6

From Mark Scott:

Just wanted to get the word out on the first India Hat held in the cozy community of Auroville.  India can be similar to going to another world in some respects, so just to come for an ultimate tournament may be a bit too short of a trip but if you spread the word maybe some ultimate players will be around to join in the fun with the growing community here.

The tournament will be held Feb 4th-6th.  Players from all over India and worldwide are invited to join in the first annual AV Ultimate hat tournament. Individual players will be mixed to form balanced teams with all who wish to participate.
The fields are hard ground with cleats being the most suitable option but running shoes can work.
Date & Time:
It is recommended to arrive before Friday the 4th at noon, as the first round of games will begin that afternoon at 2pm. Games will continue throughout the weekend finishing Sunday at sundown (around 6:30pm).
The closest airport to fly in to is Chennai.
Tiger Airways, Malaysia Airlines, or Indian Air with the lowest international fairs.
Air Asia also flies to Tiruchirappalli. or can be used to find the best flight within India.
From Chennai, it is a 150km cab or bus ride down ride down, which we can help arrange transportation.  Also cabs can be reserved on your own at
To accommodate all who are interested, please submit the registration form (on the left side of this page) on or before January 16th.
This will be a much calmer atmosphere than Bangkok and Vietnam and even the rest of India, so we hope that you’ll have some time to let it sink in.
Hope your new year is off to a great start.
om shanti shanti om,
Mark & the AV Ultimate team
