Wrap Up: Borneo Headhunters Hat 2011

Kota Kinabalu, Sabah: An awesome weekend of Ultimate action at the Borneo Headhunters Hat 2011 wrapped up here Sunday at the most international pick-up session Kota Kinabalu has ever seen.

Borneo Headhunters Hat 2011 – What to Expect

Ok Headhunters Hat participants, it’s the final countdown.

Hopefully you have your sunscreen and hat packed and you’re ready for a hot weekend of Ultimate in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah!

However, prepare for mud – if it rains leading up to the weekend, the field might be a bit muddy.  Nothing much you can do about it, except play safe. Always be aware of what’s going on around you, and don’t jump for discs that already has 5 other people jumping for it.

We’re going to try and avoid injuries in this tournament.


“Will you encourage particpants to play with the wigs on Saturday?”, asked a participant in an anxious email. By all means, it’s the Getting Wiggy With It edition of the Borneo Headhunters Hat – so wear the wig as much as you like.

The schedule looks roughly like this...
