In case you were thinking about picking up with a team during the Summer League Tourney, please read below:

The next two weeks of Summer League are the tournament. While pick-up players are still invited to come out and play, we have implemented a stricter policy regarding pick-up players.

If you are interested in picking up on a tournament night, you MUST email austinsummerleague@gmail.com by 11:59PM of the Monday before. To keep the tournament as competitive as possible, not all pickup requests will be granted. Pickup players will be informed (by email) whether or not they are needed by 4:00pm Tuesday. Do not simply show up at the fields expecting to play – there will not be a spot for you. Please do not drive all the way out to Manor unless you have emailed us and received a response. Pick-up for the tournament will be $5 per night, so please bring cash or check to the fields.

Schedule:

Rounds 1 & 2 will be held on Tuesday, July 22.

Rounds 3 & 4 will be held on Tuesday, July 29.

There are no Wednesday games during the tournament. Games start promptly at 7:00pm.

Directions to the fields can be found here: http://austinultimate.org/summerleague/?page_id=2

Please forward this email to anyone you know who may be interested in picking up and to any ultimate-related email lists to which this message was not sent.

Thanks,

Jacob Lohman and Gary Breaux

To all the ladies!

I wanted to follow up Ella’s email about the Women’s Skill Clinic being held this Sunday 7/27/08. The clinic is welcome to ALL women of ALL abilities. Have you been wanting to work on those inside out throws or your around throws? How about defensive positioning? Or are you just wanting to fine tune your skills? Come to the Women’s Skills Clinic!
  • What is it? A skills clinic hosted by Showdown, an elite women’s team in Texas. Showdown players will be leading different stations focusing on specific skills, followed by a scrimmage to show off your newly polished skills.
  • When is it? This Sunday! 7/27/08 at 10am to 1pm.
  • Where is it? McCallum High School http://maps.google.com/maps?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4SUNA_enUS277US278&q=mccallum%20high%20school&um=1&sa=N&tab=wl
  • What else? This is a fundraiser for Showdown, so have $5 in hand. UPLA will provide water jugs. We’ll have Clif bars to snack on, so all you need to bring is cleats, sunscreen, light and dark shirt and a water bottle. Following the skills clinic we were going to grab some grub at Phil’s Ice House http://www.philsicehouse.com for a little social time with the ladies.
Please refer to Ella’s sweet flyer (see below) if you need to be enticed just a little more. If you have any more questions or need any other information, please don’t hesitate to email either Ella (ella.puga@gmail.com) or me (Sarah/Slider) (blythsarah@gmail.com). Hope to see you there!

Hey all,

I’m sure you guys are the planning kind and have your plans for the 4th all figured out. But if you’re a slacker like we are, and you don’t have plans we would like to offer our house as a place to hang out, eat, and have a beer 🙂

It’s a potluck, so bring food and drink to share.

Fireworks about 3 min from our house (so no need to trek downtown). We’ll caravan over there when it’s time.

Feel free to bring friends and significant others, as always. The more the merrier, really!

If the door is locked and it’s after dark, we are watching fireworks. From our house, go back out to Gaylord and take a right. Left onto Weldon (dead end), right onto Surrender. Look for a street that can take you further left (several are labeled no outlet). Take that through to Merrilltown and take a right. Go all the way down until you hit a stop sign. There will be a school on your left and a strip center on your right. Take a right. Park should be on your left. Chris and my cells will be on just in case.

Sorry if this is getting to you for the second, third or fourth time…

———-

Howdy M/FNU Players,

Riverside (Team 2) has 6 players so far for our tourney in College Station July 19-20th  ( http://www.torrentfrisbee.com/).  We are looking to add to our roster Now.  Riverside plays a much more disciplined offense and defense than M/FNU requires.  We would like to pick up experienced players for the tournament to round out our team.  This would require practices Wednesday at 6:00 PM & Saturday at 9:00 AM.  Exceptions will be made as needed, but success on the field comes from practice.

If you have experience playing ultimate in Intramural Tournaments or at a more competitive level and would like to come play with a bunch of fun Ultimate players with a long tradition of Austin Ultimate, please contact me at pagen@io.com and we can discuss the PB&J Tournament in College Station and joining Austin Riverside Ultimate.

Dave, Tom, and Henry, please send me an email either way.  🙂

Logistics for the tournament will be to drive back afterward if you need to and drive back in the AM.

Thanks in advance,

Paul Normandin
