Ultimate Frisbee at Nats!

Postby Alex-RCHS » April 29th, 2018, 7:49 pm

Hey everyone!

I'm trying to organize an Ultimate Frisbee tournament for Friday. It would be casual and fun, no experience required. Now, none of this is confirmed or official yet and I don't have details, but I'm do want to gauge interest. Please comment below if you think people on your team would be interested (including approximately how many). I'm hoping to get a sense of the numbers soon, so let me know ASAP please!

Thanks!

Ooo, I remember when our team went to Nats last year people were honestly more excited to play frisbee than to compete, even though we won't be there I hope there's a good frisbee tournament :D

Good question. I've been working on getting an intramural field for a couple of hours. It costs $70 though. I'm calling a frisbee/disc store tomorrow to see if they'll sponsor. Otherwise, I'm not quite sure what to do about the cost. I can't really ask teams to pay.

You can't just find an unofficial space and set up cones or something?

Well, it better be away from pedestrian pathways and away from buildings/testing buildings.

I'm trying to imagine one of the top team's copter getting decimated by a frisbee right now...

Good idea. It'll get some Troy kids to stop studying so they'll do worse!

Hey everyone! Here's some info about the ultimate frisbee competition.

General Info: The competition is absolutely confirmed and is scheduled to take place from 12:15 to 3:15* (Colorado time, of course) on Friday, May 18 on the Intramural Fields.** If enough teams sign up, I might push the start time up to 11:45.

Team Composition: Please note that teams will be composed of 7 people. If you don’t have 7 people on your team interested in playing, then I’ll try to accomodate you anyway. If you have less than 7 people then I might split you up or combine you with another team/some extra alumni. We'll make it work. If you have more than 7 people, no worries. We might split you into 2 teams, or you can just sub some people out between halves. Again, we'll make it work. Also, I'm restricting this competition to Division C competitors and alumni only. Sorry, but I want to keep the level of competition fair for everyone.

Signing up: Here is a form to officially sign your team up to compete. Even if you've already expressed your interest to me personally, I still need you to sign up here. I need this done by Saturday, May 12 at 11:59 PM in order to have time to construct a schedule and contact all of the teams. Additionally, I reserve the right to close this form early if too many teams sign up. (I don't think I'll have to, but I'm putting it out there just in case.)

Rules: Here's a link to the rules that we'll be using.*** After considering the level of experience involved and the spirit of this competition, I've adapted the regular Ultimate rules to best fit our situation. We're going to be following the rules loosely with the main goal being to have fun. Save your competitive fire for Saturday. That said, if you have any suggestions for me, I'm always happy to hear them.

Lastly, please bear with me through this whole process. Remember that I volunteered to organize this for the benefit of competitors. Furthermore, this is in the thick of AP season, nationals studying, and college paperwork. I'm doing my best to get all the organizing done well and efficiently, so I'll appreciate your patience, cooperation, and participation in this competition.

*A note about timing: There's a "Friday Night Fiesta" from 4:00-6:00. My understanding is that it's some type of dinner. Since I want to give everyone ample time to shower (strongly encouraged, but not necessary) and change (please, at least do this) I don't want the ultimate competition to run past 3:15.
**Here's a map. I don't know which field it's on yet, but I'll let you know soon. They're pretty close together anyway.
***I may change the rules if someone points out something in there that doesn't make sense (or if I just feel like it). But I probably won't.

Unfortunately, no. I suggested this to Mr. Lovaas but he seemed to find it a bad idea. Given the size that we need (we will likely run two games at a time) and the length of time required (3 hours-ish in total). Also, there is too great a chance of us bothering competitors or pedestrians.
