This Friday: 6-8pm Burnaby North Turf
So we're at Burnaby North again this Friday (and we stay there until August 10th), school's out for the summer and it's a Friday before a long weekend, so make it out if you can. We'll play Goaltimate if the numbers aren't good (Goaltimate can be played with only 6 people total).
This Monday: 6:30-8:30pm Burnaby Lake Sports Complex West - Field #4 (Turf)
The Holiday Monday June 2nd is our First Monday of the summer, all Monday games will be at Burnaby Lake West, on Field #4, which is the lower field immediately to the east of the parking lot (you can literally park right beside the field). It's a Holiday Monday, so everyone welcome, if numbers support it we can have upto two games going, if the turnout is small we can do Goaltimate, or a single field.
It's a turf field, but it's newer than the rest at BLSC-W. Additionally at the field there are team benches which have a shelter associated with them, so there's somewhere dry-ish to keep your stuff if it's raining.
There are an increasing number of parents who play in BUDS, so these questions are targeted specifically at them:
- Would having childcare (e.g. a on site babysitter) make it so that you would be more likely to play Ultimate?
- Would it influence whether you played alone or whether your spouse/partner/other appropriate term could play with you?
- If the idea is something that you like, what ages are your children and would they require any special level of supervision?
- If the idea is something that you like, would you be willing to pay a fee to have your children watched while you play (either on a seasonal basis or on a per night/per child basis)?
This is an idea we've floated before, but at the time there wasn't enough interest (or maybe enough parents) to make it feasible. Given that some nights there are enough kids that if they were a little older they could make their own team, it seemed as though it would be appropriate to revisit.

BUDS on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/burnabyultimate
If you're on Facebook and haven't liked Burnaby Ultimate & Disc Sports yet you might want to do so, it's often a faster way to get information. Also, you'll find updates about Ultimate in Canada, tournaments and other things which might be of interest but which don't make it into an actual email.
The other advantage of Facebook is that when you share or like BUDS posts the fact that you've done that is shared with your friends, which gives us increased exposure and reaches people we would not otherwise reach through the website or email.
BUDS on Twitter: @bbyulti
If you're on Twitter you might want to follow @bbyulti which gets the most timely updates with respect to field locations, game reminders and upcoming events. Again, you'll get updates and information which is not distributed by email, although it should be visible on the BUDS website for those of you who don't use Twitter or choose not to follow.
