Some more information (which will be added to the first post):
First of all, if you post "My team will play," I don't know what team you're on so I can't put you into the tournament. Sure, I could look it up from your other posts, but I'm lazy. So I need everyone who's interested to send me a PM with their team name (unless you already have). If you're in B division especially, I'd like verification to some extent from your coach that you can come play, because I don't want there to be a campus-wide search for seven kids who ran off on their own.

Things To Bring:
  • 7 team members + substitutes (if you want)
  • Water (No dying allowed)
  • A frisbee (So we have enough)
  • And if you have some available and some space in your suitcase, if people could bring cones to mark boundaries, it would be a lot easier than using whatever nature gives us.
  • Matching shirts will not earn bonus points but would still be pretty cool. Or at least matching colors.

Rules:
(read this)
  • 7 on 7 matches. Substitutions are allowed only after points are scored
  • Matches will be either 25-30 minutes long or until a team is winning by five points
  • After points, teams switch sides and the scoring team pulls
  • Stay an arm's length away from the player with the disc. Intentional physical contact is not allowed.
  • Additional rules (like stall counts) can be added (or subtracted) if both teams that are playing agree

I'll try to get the location settled sometime in the next few days, but it could be subject to change. I know Wichita State (where our state tournament is held) is very particular about their landscaping and there's a possibility Wright State could be too.

I don't think WW-P South will be able to go since we're gonna be at this museum with a lot of airplanes, but you never know.

It's called the Air Force Museum. It's the official museum of the US Air Force and unlike any other museum in the world - and admission is free. I'd highly recommend everyone visiting if you have a few hours to spare while in Dayton. It's only about 1 mile away from campus.

Anyone up for basketball tournament? It wouldn't have to be too big, maybe around 5-10 teams would be fine. There are courts outside near some of the dorms and hopefully we can use the gym too. Maybe 3 on 3 tournament so one team can enter multiple teams. I'm from Acton-Boxborough (MA) btw.

I'd love to, if you can find a court.

Okay, so here's the plan:

WHEN: 1:00 on Friday. Try to be there a little early. Ideally, based on the number of teams I have signed up, I'd like to have three games for each team at 1:00, 1:45, and 2:30. This would still give you plenty of time to get to the team barbecue at 3:30.
WHERE: We'll try to have it at the playing fields, but there's a good chance they could be off-limits or in-use. If you show up to the playing fields after 1:00 and (1) No one is there or (B) A bunch of people are there not playing ultimate, what we'll do is move up to that nice centralized circle with the paths crisscrossing (Right above Lot 17: Look here). If that's taken, we'll improvise.
WHAT to bring: We should have 4 or 5 games going at a time, so we're going to need discs and we're going to need cones (which I really underestimated the cost of... so we're going to need some more)
WEATHER: The forecast calls for isolated thunderstorms as of right now. Should weather be an issue, you can decide if you want to wait it out and try to get a game in or leave. But I've played ultimate in raging snowstorms before, so I think we can suck it up and dodge the lightning. ;)

This should take two hours tops, so there's plenty of time to do other things (WW-P South... this is directed at you... we still want you to come) throughout the day. If you have any more questions, post 'em here.

Hey can you sign up Acton-Boxborough Regional High School (Division C, MA). We'll try to have a team of around 7 people or so, maybe a little more.

Solon Middle School is definitely in, with 9 members.
Solon High School is tentatively going to try to field a team as well.

I'm glad to see such interest. It looks like we'll be able to have a full-fledged tournament in C division.

On Friday, I'll be in a red shirt with a blue hat- look for me when you get there.

UPDATE: There is a chance that the playing fields will be taken up by other, more official activities tomorrow. There is also a chance that the backup area will also be taken. Should this happen, there is another location that would also work- the Village Fields at the far north of the campus. (Unfortunately this is on the other side of the campus). I'll post a final decision on here tomorrow at about 10 AM, so pay attention to the thread if you can.

WW-P South will be able to come, provided we are able to find the location ;P
