Turkey Digest Ultimate 11/28

Pickup 11 AM Friday, November 28th. Rugby fields at Zilker Park.

If we don’t get enough players for a game we can play DG at Zilker and I will have plenty of discs to share for those without.   But I bet we will have plenty.

The link is not exact – 2310 Andrew Barton RoadYou will see the Rugby fields to the East and a touch North.

Directions:
Turn South off Barton Springs Road onto Andrew Barton Drive as if you are going to Barton Springs Pool and make your FIRST hard LEFT heading east on to Andrew Barton Rd. Park there or follow the road around like you are heading toward Robert E. Lee Road and you can toward north for a few hundred yards to another parking area.  You will have just completely circled the Rugby Field.

Who’s interested? 🙂

Austin Winter League 2008

*******************************************************

Don’t be left out!! Please sign up to be on the austinultimate listserve by going to http://groups.google.com/group/austinultimate/subscribe and follow the directions.

OR send an email to:

*******************************************************

Put away your sun dresses and crop-top t-shirts, winter is coming and that means Austin Winter League is BACK!  Sign-up begins today!

Before you click the link below that takes you to the Austin Winter League main page, we need to have a quick heart-to-heart.  We got spoiled last year with some mighty mild winter weather.  Let’s assume we got lucky last year and that good luck generally lasts about as long as a six-pack at an Ultimate party.  It’s better to assume now that every week it’s going to be miserably cold, wet and windy.  And yet, your team is counting on you to be there.  You hear what I’m saying?  Once you sign-up, you’re committing to play this winter no matter the conditions just as the mail man commits to delivering mail even when his nipples are frozen like a Fla-Vor-Ice.

Not scared?  Good, then get set to join the best league this side of Antarctica.  If you’re unfamiliar with Austin Winter League, let me list a few of the reasons this league kicks more ass than your grandfather’s Ultimate league:

– We’ve got lined fields located about 10 minutes east of downtown (YMCA- East for the 3rd year in a row)

– Team size stops at 17.  With a few people missing each week, teams are the right size for ample PT and no frozen feet waiting on the sidelines.

– You get FREE FOOD every week!

– WHAT?!!!  There’s no way we could FREE FOOD every week.

– Shut up and eat the free gd food.  And we’re not talking about dry-ass bagels.  It’s real food, hot and fresh.

– Free alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for everyone…each week.

– Get over it and drink up.  It’s fer shizzle.

– Custom-designed disc you don’t have to pay extra for.

– A custom-designed colored Austin Winter League shirt.

– Prizes, parties and hidden perks at every turn.

– Showcase games every week.  Don’t know what that is?  Wait ’til you’re playing in it.

For all of that, the cost is $44.69.  So SUCK ON THAT!!!

By the way, the theme this year is Tastefully Risqué.  Only 19 and over are eligible to sign-up*.  (Not because of the theme… it’s because there is a high school league that partially overlaps with Austin Winter League and we don’t wish to poach their players.)

Three things you MUST KNOW before registering: 1) You pay for the league via PayPal at the time of registration and you do NOT need a PayPal account in order to pay.  Simply pay with a credit or debit card just as you would any other Internet purchase.  Your registration will be deleted and you will not be registered for the league if you have not paid.  2) There are no refunds.  If you get injured in Week #1, thanks for the donation.  This league is presented by UPLA, the Ultimate Players League of Austin.  UPLA (pronounced YOU-play) is a Texas Non-profit and funnels every penny it takes in to support local leagues, tournaments and community outreach especially to youth Ultimate.  3) When you go to pay, you’ll have the opportunity to donate something extra to UPLA.  We really need the extra few bucks, so please donate it if you got it.

This league will fill up and it will fill up fast, so don’t delay registering yourself and getting your friends to sign-up also.  (Especially women are always needed to help balance-out the teams.)  Once the league reaches 204 players, we pull down the sign-up page and start up a waiting list.  We have allowed a couple of weeks for folks to sign-up, but if we hit that magic number of 204 earlier, those left out in the cold will be relegated to spending their winter indoors.  Ho hum!

The dates and times of the league are given at the website.  Go there now and register your ass fast. http://winterleague.austinultimate.org

PS   This is Austin Winter League…no whiners, no crybabies, no prima donnas.
