:: [BUDS] Summer Update: pick-up starts this week and more... ::

Date: April 21st 2013

Folks,

Strange how having a new baby can keep you from doing simple things like writing email. Later than planned, but here it is.

Summer Ultimate

I am still looking for volunteers to help with all sorts of things, but they don't exist yet so we'll forge ahead anyway. If you're willing/able to help out, let me know.

The Plan

We're going to start with some pick-up, which will also serve as introductory clinics for those who need them, and recruiting opportunities for teams and players. Here's the planned pick-up schedule:

  1. Tuesday 23 Apr 2013, 6:30-8:00pm* at Kensington #5
  2. Wednesday 24 Apr 2013, 6:30-8:00pm* at Confederation Park oval
  3. Sunday 28 Apr 2013, 6:30-8:00pm* at Confederation Park oval
  4. Tuesday 30 Apr 2013, 6:30-8:00pm* at Kensington #5
  5. Wednesday 01 May 2013, 6:30-8:00pm* at Confederation Park oval
  6. Sunday 05 May 2013, 6:30-8:00pm at Confederation Park oval

    * or people get tired of playing

In terms of what will happen with each night, the plan is:

  • Tuesday: league night, playing 5/2 gendered ultimate (unless 4/3 or 3/4 is possible based on team composition)
  • Wednesday: practice night, pick-up, or possible 5 on 5 or Goaltimate league, depending on interest
  • Sunday: potential secondary league night if sufficient interest

Fees

  • Tuesday: $700/team, $75/individual, $140/couple
  • Wednesday: $400/team, $40/individual
  • Sunday: $350/team, $40/individual

But I haven't registered yet! That's ok, it's not your fault, there hasn't been advanced registration.

Ultimate Day in Vancouver: Apr. 27

We've been invited to Ultimate Day in Vancouver, in particular the Trade Show component which runs from 11am - 3pm (setup is 10:30-10:45am). Ultimate Day is at Van Tech High School. If anyone is interested in representing Burnaby Ultimate at the event, let me know.

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

Clinics will take place during the two weeks of pick-up prior to the start of this summer's offerings. Topics will be dictated by those who attend.

Burnaby Disc Golf Club

The Burnaby Disc Golf Club achieved "Gold Club" status with the BCDSS and now has 60+ members. If you would like to support the Club, we encourage you to join. Dues are $10 annually.

In addition to achieving "Gold Club" status The Club was also awarded a $1,000 Club Development Grant from the BCDSS which they will be using to make improvements to the course.

Current club activities are:

  • Running doubles on Saturday morning until the end of April (11am start)
  • Running Club Rounds on Saturday afternoons until the end of April ~1:30pm start (and possibly throughout the summer)
  • Summer Doubles Tuesday evenings (start time dictated by available light) starting first Tuesday in May
  • Summer Clubs Thursday evenings (start time dictated by available light) starting first Thursday in May

Doubles rounds are competitive and cost $7 ($5 purse; $1 ace pot; $1 to the club), but you are randomly paired with another player, so it can be a great opportunity to learn from a more skilled disc golfer. Club Rounds are fun alternative courses suitable for all levels of play, and can optionally be played for Robert Burnaby Tags, there is an optional contribution of $2 ($1 for ace pot/closest to the pin; $1 to the club). Everyone is welcome to such events.

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.
