The (Masters Division) Beyondors were formed in 1993. Ricky Dude called me and said he and Doug the Bum had been talking about putting a masters team together for Nationals 1993. I told him I was interested and we began talking about possibilities for our roster. Our goal was to have primarily Condors on the team but we also realized that there were other vets out there who would love to play with us and we with them. Since we now lived in different cities, we decided that we would each be responsible for contacting the local players we wanted to recruit. Obviously practices were out of the question, but we did manage to get part of the team together for one scrimmage down in LA. The regional tournament in San Diego was our first chance to play together and we prevailed in the finals over a very competitive team from LA to win the bid. RD commissioned Pete Gately to make us some wicked shirts and we were on our way to Nationals in San Antonio. We started off our first game in typical Condors fashion, Ted showed up late and we were sluggish, playing just well enough to win. We ended the first day with a loss to our long time rivals from the Bay Area, Tampico at the cap. The second day we began to play better and swept all three of our games putting us in the semi's. The third day found us having to play back to back games against the Texas Los Airmanos, in our final pool game and the semi's. Although the final pool game did not matter to either team, we decided to set the tone for the semi's and played to win. We won both games and advanced to the finals where we would face the Miami Refugees who defeated the Bay Area team, for the second time in the tournament, in the other semi's. In the finals, we came out hot and Miami was flat. We capitalized on several turnovers and built up a big lead. After trading goals for awhile, they started to close the gap late, but we made some big plays and finished them off to take the title.

"In short, great teammates, great attitudes, great playing, and great shirts made for a great experience."
