2022 Fright Flight Lite

2022 Fright Flight Lite

We are advertising an external group’s tournament. AYU is not hosting or sponsoring the event in any way. Fright Flight is an Adult only event.

Thanks to everyone for making Fright Flight part of your ultimate season.

Fright Flight was started in 1995 by Heath Mackay and Holly Wright. The tournament is a Halloween themed ultimate frisbee event that is certainly a sight to behold! Where else can you see a bunch of Oompa Loompas chasing after a flying disc without mind altering substances.

Since its inception, Fright Flight has been a tournament focused on fostering Spirit of the Game, creativity, inclusion, growing the sport of Ultimate, healthy competition, and having a lot fun! Built on 25 years of tradition, Fright Flight is a great way to play frisbee with old and new friends alike while dressed up in whatever crazy costume theme your team can come up with.

For 2022 we are hosting a smaller one-day event on Sunday, October 23th in Broomfield with 16 teams. We hope to find a home for a two day Fright Flight next year.

Here are the basic tourney details for 2022:
