Discs for Sale
27 Aug 2012, Update: I've sold a lot of Ultimate and Disc Golf discs over the past week, so the list on the website is not currently accurate, but I will be updating it today, so it should be up to date in an hour or so.
If you haven't seen the post on the website about it, I've been cleaning out my storage locker and have an assortment of Ultimate discs, Disc Golf discs and assorted accessories that I'm selling. There are pictures of the discs, and a full listing: http://burnabyultimate.ca/2012/08/discs-for-sale/
Pretty much everything is going for $10. Let me know if you see something you want, some of it has been spoken for.
I will have the Ultimate discs out at the field tonight...
Fall League: Byrne Creek Monday nights 8-10pm
We're back at Byrne Creek on Monday nights! I have the permits in hand, we've got Byrne Creek from 8-10pm on Monday nights for 17 consecutive weeks (until Dec 31). Registration details and such should be out this week, but if for some reason they aren't just show up September 10th at 7:45pm.
Masters Pickup Ultimate in Vancouver (Age 33+ by Dec 31, 2013)
So starting this Thursday (Aug 30th) there is Masters Pickup Ultimate at Winona Park in Vancouver. It starts at 5:30pm and goes until people get tired or it gets too dark. It's going to be a recuring weekly thing until they run out of daylight to make it viable (it's a grass field with no lights).
If you're interested you should check out the Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/458388324182439/
I expect that's where you'll find the most up to date information. Also, please feel free to pass this along to people who might be interested.
Just for clarity, this is for Masters, which in Ultimate terms means people who are 33 or older, with a grace period granted to those people who turn 33 by the end of the year (e.g. born in 1979). I don't think they're probably going to be militant about it. Also, if they do go by the strict rules, women only need to be 30 (e.g. born in 1982) to qualify. Like I say, I think it's probably a combination of demographic and attitude that they are looking for, so if you've got a master's attitude and they don't still check your ID at the pub you're probably ok.
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.
