Machine, Chicago’s elite open club ultimate team, had its first round of invitational tryouts on Sunday, May 20, 2012. There are three rounds of invitational tryouts, followed by a tournament against other club teams as the final selection stage in June. The players competing for spots include new and old face alike, as Machine players have to try out again every year to retain their spot on the team. The team will compete throughout the summer to prepare for the USA Ultimate Club Championships in October in Sarasota, Fla.
