:: [BUDS] Summer, Volunteers & BDGC Meeting ::

Date: March 9th 2013

Folks,
First update of the New Year I think.  Lots of stuff going on, most of which will probably be of interest to you if you’re still on the mailing list.

Summer Ultimate

We have fields for the summer confirmed now.  Details about what exactly we're offering will be available as soon as we know.

Tuesdays: Burnaby Heights & Kensington #5 from 23 Apr - 13 Aug (Bby Heights until Aug 27) 6:30-8:30pm

Wednesdays: Confederation Park oval 24 Apr - 28 Aug, 6:30-8:30pm and Burnaby Lake Sports Complex West #2 24 Apr - 26 Jun 6:30-8:30 and Jul 3 - Aug 28 6-8pm

Sundays: Confederation Park oval 28 Apr - 18 Aug, 6:30-8:30pm

As to what will be offered when, that’s still up for discussion, but the bottom line is we have fields.

Lead-in to Fall:

Mondays: Burnaby Lake Sports Complex West #4, 12 Aug - 26 Aug, 8-10pm

As to what will be offered when, that’s still up for discussion, but the bottom line is we have fields.

Volunteers

I’m looking for some volunteers to help with things, in particular this summer, but also going forward.  In truth the only way that things are going to work this summer is if we end up with a team of people helping out.  If you want to help but don’t see something that suits you, I’m open to other suggestions.

Tuesday night coordinator

This could be split between multiple people if needed.  Would be responsible for determining the nights offering (format, gender ratios, scheduling), resolving minor disputes and communicating to participants.

Format could be: Ultimate (7v7, 6v6, 5v5, full field, “turf field”, sub on the fly, etc…), Goaltimate (4v4 or 3v3), DDC or something else with approval and sufficient community interest.

Wednesday night coordinator

This could be split between multiple people if needed.  Would be responsible for determining the nights offering (format, gender ratios, scheduling), resolving minor disputes and communicating to participants.

Format could be: Ultimate (7v7, 6v6, 5v5, full field, “turf field”, sub on the fly, etc…), Goaltimate (4v4 or 3v3), DDC or something else with approval and sufficient community interest.

Sunday night coordinator

This could be split between multiple people if needed.  Would be responsible for determining the nights offering (format, gender ratios, scheduling), resolving minor disputes and communicating to participants.

Format could be: Ultimate (7v7, 6v6, 5v5, full field, “turf field”, sub on the fly, etc…), Goaltimate (4v4 or 3v3), DDC or something else with approval and sufficient community interest.

Promotions or Marketing

Coming up with creative ways to inform more people about Burnaby Ultimate & Disc Sports, and hopefully attract more players to our various offerings.

Social Coordinator/Community Building

Gauging player interest in additional social events and organizing those events (if interest merits it).  This can be whatever you want it to be from helping encourage post-game drinks or dinner, to parties, beach day, disc golfing or whatever people are interested in.

Juniors Coordinator

At this point we have no plans to start an actual juniors league, however there are to be 3 Burnaby based high school teams this year: Burnaby North, Burnaby Central and St. Thomas Moore.  So this person would be responsible for keeping in touch with those teams/coaches and seeing if there are opportunities for us to collaborate or otherwise help each other.  An enthusiastic individual could go so far as to reach out to the schools without teams and encouraging their creation.

Clinics

I don’t currently have any clinics planned or scheduled before the summer, so the question is do people want some clinics this year?  If so what do you want to learn/practice?

Burnaby North, Central and STM

These three high schools have or are starting school teams, there are probably opportunities for people to help out if they are interested.

Burnaby Disc Golf Club

The Burnaby Disc Golf Club is trying to get to Gold Club status with the BCDSS which means they are trying to get to 50 members, they are currently at about 10 members short.  If they hit the 50 mark before March 15th, they are eligible for an additional $500 in grant money and entitled to 50 free discs among other things.  So if you’re interested in Disc Golf, I would encourage you to support the BDGC.
Recent Club activities include:

  • Running weekly Doubles and Club rounds (on Saturdays in the Fall/Winter and weeknights in the Spring/Summer)
  • Purchasing and installing of two new practices baskets at Robert Burnaby (on near each parking lot), bringing the total number of baskets to 12 at the course.

Burnaby Disc Golf Club Meeting

There will be a meeting this Saturday after the club rounds at Me and Ed’s pizza.  The meeting is open to everyone, not just club members, although club membership is encouraged.  Check the website for additional meeting details. http://burnabydiscgolf.com/

 

 

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.
