Start of 2018 season on Tuesday, May 15th

Hey there Brattleboro area Ultimate enthusiasts! The new season is coming fast. A few brief updates on what's happening:

- The 2018 season starts Tuesday May 15!

- To encourage people to register and pay for a full season, we are including a FREE Brattleboro Ultimate DISC for everyone who does so by the first week of the season. This helps reduce organizational work, so help us out if you can and score a sweet disc at the same time!

- Times have changed a bit: warm-up is now 6:15 and game time 6:30 in an attempt to make a compromise between work schedules and limited daylight, especially at the beginning and end of the season.

- Numbers have as always fluctuated the last couple years (which is as long as I've been coming), so to encourage new people to check it out, we have made the first evening free and lowered the drop-in price to $6. That being said, if you plan on coming regularly, we definitely appreciate people signing up for the whole season at once!

- All the information about the new season has already been updated on this site, so check it out, get registered and get psyched for some ultimate! I look forward to seeing you all out on the field!

Volunteers Needed for the 2018 Season

Hello Brattleboro Ultimate People! Your help is needed!
It's that time of year again, when Ultimate minds turn to thoughts of chasing plastic. This will be the 5th year of Brat Ulti in it's current incarnation, playing at West River Park.
I'm not going to be able to spend as much time focused on Ultimate this summer, so in order for this season to happen we're going to need a few volunteers who can regularly take turns handling registration and chaperoning each night, and most importantly one person to:
  • organize the volunteers to make sure every night is covered
  • ensure registration and money is tracked properly
  • communicate on this page and our website, including reminders for most nights, and updates like weather cancellations

I'll help setup things with the town and USAU to get us started, and will volunteer the nights I come to play, but I can't do as much as I have the past 4 years.
Do you want to play this summer, and are willing to help out? Please come to our first planning meeting. Vote here for what meeting times work for you.

Pickup Canceled for Tues Oct 24

Pickup Ultimate canceled due to the forecast of rain and thunderstorms.

I waited until noon to make the decision, but Wunderground says rain and thunderstorms throughout the day, intensifying this evening. I know some of us would be happy to play in the rain, but we don't play in thunderstorms and in my experience we won't get enough players when it's been rainy all day.

Unlike our summer season, we don't have to pay for the field on fall nights we don't use the lights due to bad weather. I'd hate to be charged just for 4 of us to show up, shrug our shoulders, then go home.

I hope to see you all next week for our final night.

FALL PICKUP STARTS THIS TUESDAY, OCTOBER 3.

We're playing under the lights on the softball field at West River Park, which is fantastic! It's usually a great temperature for running around without overheating. Playing in a patch of light, steam rising off of everyone, occasionally surrounded by fog, can be kind of otherworldly.
Every Tues in October, 7pm-9pm.
$5/night, or $20 for all 5 weeks*. (*some risk due to weather cancellations.)

PICKUP - Thur Aug 17 at 6pm

This is my last night for the summer. I'm starting a hike of the Long Trail at the end of next week. It's been great playing with you all. Tokeem and Nell will be keeping things running until our last night of Thur Sept 14.
