||If chickens can’t fly, where did the phrase, “don’t fly the coop” come from?
Well, it all started in 1903 with two young roosters named Wilbur and Orville
Wright on the outskirts of Dayton, Ohio. It was the Wright roosters, two
University of Dayton cocks, who invented the first heavier than air frisbee and
ushered in the age of Dayton air superiority. Historians maintain the high flying
frisbee antics of Wilber and Orville were lost during WWI, only to be discovered
again in the late 1980’s by a group of UD students who are now known
as “The Godfathers.” The Godfathers founded “Calvin and Hucks,” which later
became “The Sultans of Swing,” and has now settled on “Ghetto Force.” On any
given day you will find Ghetto Force cocks and hens still scratching around the
campus fields in search of the Ultimate seeds of life.
First Chickens In Flight will be primarily made of the University of Dayton Ghetto
Force Alumni, “Get Old Force.” Our goal is to recreate the UD party atmosphere,
where every door is always open and underclassmen never pay to party, on the
ultimate field. It will be a team of all ages, comprised of the founding fathers
from the 80’s and their chicks (the Mike & Zach Kaylor, father son connection),
the power rooster generation of the 90’s, the young egg crackers of the 21st
century, and of course our inter-teammates.
First Chickens In Flight has players living across the country but is based out
of Dayton, Ohio. We understand the difficulty running such an immense
tournament, and with the team’s close proximity, would like to volunteer our
services and help out wherever necessary—being chicken, we are well versed
with picking at the ground.
It would be an honor to again play at Poultry Days, and great reunion for all our
alumni. Thanks for your consideration.
