What do you do other than play Frisbee (e.g. work, fun, family)? I work at the Only Cafe & Providence. I have fun, occasionally, outside of playing Ultimate. I love donuts & cappuccinos. My family still don’t fully understand my obsession with Ultimate Frisbee… they’ll come around.
Kerri Kightley is a quiet sort. But she’s been playing Ultimate since her youngest was 6 weeks old. With the amount of ultimate she’s played I’m sure she’s got some great memories. We thank her just the same.
