Since the fields close at roughly 7, there will be no pickup for the next few weeks until Whitaker Fields return to their usual schedule.

In the meantime, here’s what you could be singing up for:

Winter League – men’s spots are full, but there are still spots available for women. (You can still do pay to play, but it’s a different process this year so make sure to read about that). We expect that to cap out soon, too – so sign up quickly!

J’s Hat Tournament – there are currently 96 people registered to play. We have to close registration soon in order to have time to make the teams, so register today if you were planning on playing!

TONIGHT is the last Friday that the fields are open before the Holiday break. They have a history of closing early, but we asked the head guy at the hut and he said reduced hours don’t start until next week. I’ll call and confirm they are open around 4. Edit: Fields open until 10 according to Andrew, who answered the phone.

Holiday POTLUCK @ Casa di Palmarozzi this Saturday, December 4th. 6pm – we pass out. If you want to come but don’t know where we live, email me!

J’s hat tournament is already 3/4 full – get your spot before we have to cap registration! 100% of the proceeds help J to cover some medical bills. Have fun, play Ultimate, help one of Austin’s best Tournament Directors. It’s a win/win/win! Click here to register now!

Winter League registration is also almost full. Hurry up and register if you’re planning on playing. Also, if you are planning on pay-to-play this season, the process you’ll need to go through is a bit different. Read up on it now at the Winter League site.

Winter League 2009

Dear player/gamer,
Registration for Austin Winter League is officially OPEN.
“PRESS START TO PLAY”
That’s right. FINALLY, a theme revolving around the pixellated games that helped socialize, babysit, and satisfy the competitive yearning of anyone born before the compact gaming disc (or flying disc?).
I’m talkin about The Mario Bros. I’m talkin about Mega Man… Mario Kart…    Zelda…   Sonic…   Dragon Warrior…   River City Ransom (was that game based in Austin btw?)… Punch Out!!…      TECMO BOWL!!! for heaven’s sake.
I challenge you to reclaim those hours of lost (cherished) youth, and play AWL 2010!!
Go here for the details:
Spots are limited, so get signed up today. Registration will close when slots are filled. Remember, this is a food and bev league open to those age 19 and over only!! (unless signed up with a participating parent)
A fee of $44 gets you a wicking team jersey (new this year), a sweet-ass disc, tasty food and alcoholic beverages at league nights, and 7 weeks of competitive, cool-weather Ultimate with your closest and newest friends. League happens on Sunday afternoons at the YMCA fields near MLK and 183.
Captains needed! If you’re the type of person who knows a thing about frisbee and wants to facilitate good times for all, then you should volunteer as a captain.
That is all for now. Go to the site and register for the best league of all time.
Thanks,
AWL 2010

Ultimate Players,

The registration window for Austin Winter League will only be open for 3 ½ more days. There are about 30 spots left and then the league is full…as a tick! If you were waiting until the last minute to sign-up, you best not wait any longer. Of those 30 spots, we’d love for at least 12 of them to go to the ladies. More women help balance out the teams. Do it up right, ladies!

A word about money…this league is unapologetically the most expensive league Austin has to offer. At $44.69 the price is up from last year by about $2.00!!! What the eff!!!?!

Don’t get so excited, mon cherie! At closer inspection, this league is actually the best deal in town- shirts, discs, food, drink, lined fields, showcase games, and 7 weeks of the seckest sport in the world. Let’s assume for a moment we didn’t serve up hot food and drink each week…you’d still probably go grab a burger or pizza with your friends after the games and drop $7 on average anyway. We’ll serve you six weeks of food (6 x $7 = $42) for no more than the price of the league. Add to that a $10 disc, $7 T-shirt and pretty soon the league is starting to look like a genuine bargain, eh? How do we do it? We book during hurricane season!

BTW, I did some quick checking of a local soccer league just to compare costs and look at what I found (attached)! Those fancy-pants soccer players must be made of money. They’re paying literally hundreds of dollars every time out!

Okay, I’m coming down from the soap box that was teetering on my high horse, but I just wanted to put the cost of this league in perspective in case anyone was hesitating to sign-up do to the $$$.

For all of those that have already signed up for the league, get ready to be treated to the finest league-experience on the planet. Here’s what you need to know right now…plan to come to the Austin Winter League Kick-off Party from 6 PM to ??? on Friday, December 12th at Wahoo’s Fish Taco (located near downtown). This is a MUST ATTEND event for all players in the league. This is where you’ll pick-up your player packets, meet your team captain and team mates. This is also where your team shirt color will be chosen based on team attendance at the party. Don’t let your team get stuck with the lame-ass lime green shirt color because YOU didn’t attend!!! After that, the league gets underway on Sunday, December 14th. Yikes!
