I just heard that lulu.com is having a shipping special. Orders between $25 and $100 are shipped free – even internationally. I have confirmed it for domestic orders. So, get together with friends and buy together. Or, buy a few and share with friends.
For Europeans, Lui Tasini now has an inventory of books, so you can save on shipping by contacting her.
Again, you can learn more about the book at thisisfreestyle.com.
So, we are back from the Olympus! Everything was so great and professional, the organization over there is just outstanding, great food, great vibes!
As Masu told us after the first show (we did two during the day): “We made it!The entertainment was unbelievebly high! The only show where people came and stopped! The ONLY show that had the official Olympic photographer shooting! And the only one that made interactions with people! Even athletes came, watching amazed and tried some moves!! The organizers of the “entertainment area” had the best feedback with us! We won them!”
Eleonora could make lots of photos of the event and Matteo Ceresa shot with the videocamera the second show…awesome!
I’ll post the video soon and Eleonora will post the photos!
Thanks again to Masu for giving frisbee this great opportinuty!
Thanks to Matteo Ceresa for hosting all of us in Torino and shooting the video!
Thanks to Lui and Clay for organizing, brainstorming everything from the travel to the show!
And a big thanks to the athletes who took part to the event:
See you next event!

Lui Tasini reports that there will be a freestyle demo at the Olympics this week. It was arranged by Emanuele Maltoni (Ema or Manu) from the Olympics. He was part of the Paganello organizing team a few years ago.
On Friday (February 24), Clay and Ale Collerá, Fabio Sanna, Eleonora Imazio, Matteo Gaddoni and Luca Medri freestyle will visit the Olympic Village for an unofficial Frisbee Freestyle show.
I am asked all the time "is freestyle in the Olympics"? Now can I say yes? Many of us have watched big events like the Olympics and wondered what it would be like to be one of the "chosen" sports. Some disc sports are already used in Olympic training. For instance, I saw a segment a few years ago showing the US volleyball team using beach ultimate as cross training.
I can’t wait to see photos from the show and hear about everything: what the Village is like, whether the athletes watched and what they thought, whether they have any security issues. Everything.
I really need some help learning the turnover.
I know it’s a very advanced trick but I need to be able to do that.
Is there anyone who can give me good advice.
I’m clock right handed

For all the jammers who have never been to Berlin, I just uploaded a small photo gallery from a last years jam in front of the Reichstag (german parliament). The Reichstag meadow will be the spot for the pre- and post-tournament jams during the Worlds in Berlin. So feel free to catch some atmosphere and raise your pleasant anticipation.
