In October 2013, Craig started up a social sports group in Bendigo called Friday Night Frisbee. Due to an interest in playing the game of Ultimate Frisbee but not having much on offer in Bendigo, he created a facebook page called ‘Bendigo Ultimate Frisbee’ and in just over 4months, over 125 different people had come along to play.
During the summer season, the group met at Strathdale Park from 6:45pm each Friday where people from ages ranging from 12 to 60 came along! During the winter, the group are hoping to meet regularly up at Flora Hill Stadium from 7:30pm Fridays to continue playing Indoor Ultimate Frisbee.
