BHH 2013 Rules

Ultimate Frisbee is a unique self-refereed sport, but players still abide by rules governing it.  As such, we will follow the latest World Flying Disc Federation, WFDF Rules of Ultimate. Time to go brush up your knowledge.

The By Laws for the Borneo Headhunters Hat 2013 is as follow:

Captains

Teams will elect their own captains on Saturday morning during the 7:00 am team meeting. So be at the field before 7am.

Pick somebody who will champion the Spirit of the Game at all cost.  Also good to have in a captain: Knowledge of the Rules, Knowledge of Game Plays and Experience.

Your captain must report to the Tournament Director by 7:30 am Saturday morning with your team name, which you also have to decide on.

Half time: 5minutes half time taken when a team scores 5 goals or half-time cap at 20 minutes, whichever first. Half time stops game clock. When half time is called in between pulls, take the half time.

Tournament Format (Round Robin Stage)

There are 10 teams which will be split into two groups, Group a and Group b, playing against each other in the same Group during the morning matches. Captains will draw lots to determine their a1-a5 or b1-b5 placements during the 7:30am Captain’s Meeting.

 Time Field 1 Field 2 Field 3
8:00 am a1 vs. a2 b1 vs. b2 a3 vs. a4
8:55 am a1 vs. a5 b3 vs. b4 b1 vs. b5
9:50 am a2 vs. a3 b2 vs. b3 a4 vs. a5
10:45 am b4 vs. b5 a1 vs. a3
11:40 am a2 vs. a4 b2 vs. b4 b1 vs. b3
12:35 pm b3 vs. b5 a1 vs. a4 a3 vs. a5
1:30 pm a2 vs. a5 b2 vs. b5 b1 vs. b4

After all the morning match results are in, teams are reseeded in their groups to determine the afternoon playoff games A1-A5 and B1-B5, 1 being with most wins, 5 being with least wins. In the event of a tie, point differential will be used.

Point Differential = Offense Points – Defense Points
Example: Your team scores 10, your opponents score 4 on you. Your Point Differential is 6 (10 minus 4)
Or: You score 7 and your opponents score 13. Your Point Differential is -6 (7 minus 13)

If after considering wins and Points Differential and teams are still tied for a rank, we will look at past match-ups to determine the seedings for the playoffs. If Team a1 and Team a2 both have same wins and point differentials, the winner of previous match between Team a1 and Team a2 will determine the top seeding between the two.

No Moaning
The Tournament Director (TD) has the last and final say.

We have made every effort to balance the teams. Your team is what it is. Act like a champion and use what you have to overcome adversity.

Whatever happens to your team’s players on the day (no shows, upset stomachs, snowball in the eye) is your team’s fate and we cannot change it.

The Borneo Headhunters Hat wants to be known as the Best Spirited Tournament in Asia.  Help us by being friendly, having fun and making good calls on the field.

Any incidents of excessively bad Spirit will be swiftly and efficiently dealt with by Team Captains and the Tournament Director, which could include disqualification, revoked tournament privileges, being asked to leave or all of the above.

Winning is good, but playing well regardless of whether or not you’re winning, is better.

Let’s all be better! And have fun while we’re at it.

Borneo HeadhunThors Hat Theme

Borneo HeadhunThors Hat Theme

Finally, the 4th edition of the Borneo Headhunters Hat has been themed!

HeadhunThors Hat - At a Field Near You (Us) in 2013

Borneo HeadhunThors Hat

Probably because we all have a lot of Spandex lying around that is going unused, the committee decided on a superhero theme for the 2013 installation of our hat tournament.

Will you be all dark and mysterious as Batman? Or the hot and smoldering Black Widow? Perhaps you have a heart of palladium like Iron Man? Or Wonder Woman’s… whip?

But let’s try and avoid those mild mannered alter-egos shall we? No Clark Kents, Dianas of Themyscira, Peter Parkers, Selina Kyles or Bruce Waynes. They just don’t wear enough spandex for this theme (well, ok, maybe Diana of Themyscira does).

Where to start?

Your imagination is good place :) Otherwise, Google Images “superhero“.

 

Borneo Headhunters Hat 2013 Date Announced

Borneo Headhunters Hat 2013 Date Announced

We are very excited to announce the date for the next Borneo Headhunters Hat taking place in 2013.

 

4th Borneo Headhunters Hat:
Saturday, 2 March 2013

 

What is the Borneo Headhunters Hat?

The Borneo Headhunters Hat is Sabah’s first and, so far, only Ultimate Frisbee tournament.

It was held for the first time in 2010 and attracted 36 participants. In 2011 we had 82 participants and in 2012 we had 120 participants.

In 2013 we celebrate the 4th annual Borneo Headhunters Hat and, fields permitting, we hope to grow our event’s participation even further.

The hat part of competition refers to the format of the tournament. Players register as individuals and the organisers will divide them into teams, trying their best to balance the teams with players from various skill, fitness and experience levels.

A hat tournament a great way to grow the sport, as you don’t need to bring your own team to participate, and newer players have the opportunity to learn from more experienced players they’ve probably never met or played with before.  The exchange of knowledge, skills and friendship at this type of tournament is unparalleled.

Where is the Borneo Headhunters Hat?

Our Ultimate tournament takes place in Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah, which is 1 of 2 east Malaysian states on the island of Borneo.

The fields have not be confirmed yet, but Kota Kinabalu isn’t very big and between inexpensive public transport and eager local players willing to ferry competition participants around, you will never be far away from where the Headhunters Hat action is.

How do I get to the Borneo Headhunters Hat?

Well, to get to the Hat you have to get to Kota Kinabalu first.

Kota Kinabalu can be reached via direct flight, often on an inexpensive low-cost carrier from major centers around the region including Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Jakarta, Bandar Seri Begawan, Manila, Tapei, Macau and Hong Kong.

The relatively low cost makes the Borneo Headhunters Hat an excellent choice for Ultimate players in the region looking for somewhere new and fresh to play Ultimate at.

Where do I stay for the Borneo Headhunters Hat?

As we said before, Kota Kinabalu isn’t all that big, so where you stay won’t make a big difference to your transfer costs.

So 5 star, no star, budget, home-stay, apartment, resort – whatever you fancy is available and probably not too far from where the fields will be either.

What can I do before and after the Borneo Headhunters Hat?

Kota Kinabalu is the gateway to the rest of Sabah, which is known as an action packed, eco destination.

While you’re here, before or after playing in the Borneo Headhunters Hat, you have a host of activities available to you.

White water rafting, diving, island hopping, orang utan sightings, jungle trekking, climbing Mt. Kinabalu, wildlife safaris, mountain biking, cultural experiences, homestays, golfing, and the list goes on.

We’ll be hooking our players up with some good deals soon.

More information will be made available right here or at the Facebook events page for the Headhunters Hat.

Stay tuned…

BHH 2012 Wrap-up

Someone did the No-rain dance very exuberantly prior to last weekend. In what’s regarded as the hottest day in Borneo Headhunters Hat history yet, Borneo Headhunters Hat 2012 wrapped up with over a hundred players from 8 nations vying for the coveted BHH 2012 Championship title. Their reward: A Borneo Headhunters 2012 ultimate Frisbee disc and a championship medal.

The hot weather provided a challenge for all players and the tournament saw plenty of players suffering from muscle cramps. But nothing could provide a bigger challenge for the participants than the tournament champions, Red Hot Silly Divers, that dominated all the teams they played against.

23 games were played during the tournament, spread out between 3 fields, making for an Ultimate-packed Saturday. The tournament also provided an opportunity for local players to gauge themselves with foreign players while providing exposure to local Sabahans, further promoting the sport in the state.
