PICKUP - THUR MAY 26 6pm

Come out and have some fun while getting fit tonight.  Bring a light (white) and a dark (black) shirt so you can play on either team for pickup.  Don't forget water - it's gonna feel like summer out there!

I've heard some people are concerned about the "faced paced, competitive game" described on our website for Thursday nights.  We'll be changing that because Thursdays really aren't different than Tuesday.  We just reserved the right to change rules on Tuesday nights if necessary to keep them beginner friendly, like requiring everyone on a team to catch the disc before scoring, or no-hucks until the halfway line.  That really hasn't been necessary, and we're just as welcoming on Thursdays.

No Pickup Tonight - Tues May 24


I'm going to learn from last week and differentiate between a forecast for rain and a forecast for thunderstorms. We play in rain; we don't play in thunderstorms. Given the high chance of thunderstorms I see for the whole evening, there won't be any Ultimate pickup tonight.

Please join us on Thursday, if you can. Some of you have said you're sticking with Tuesdays because Thursdays were said to be a faster paced game, but they are pretty much the same as Tuesdays. We just reserve the right, on Tuesdays, to tell people to pass the disc to all players, avoid constant end-zone hucks, etc. It's really not an issue on Thursdays - come have fun!

PICKUP - THUR MAY 19 6pm

Great crowd on Tuesday! We were just a few players shy of having two full games. If only we had the field space for that. It was nice to see some new faces, plus a few faces I haven't seen for years.

It looks like a 50% chance of rain for Thursday evening, but don't let that scare you from showing up. It can be lots of fun to play in a bit of rain. We don't play when there is lightning or thunder though, so if a big storm front does form in the evening we won't be on the field.

Cones? LINES.

Cones are so 2015. Tonight we'll try out our new LINES! I'm told they make every player run, catch, and throw better. Show up tonight to find out.



Pickup starts at 6pm every Tuesday and Thursday at West River Park in Brattleboro.

Reminders for the First Night

Pickup starts Tues May 3 at 6pm at West River Park.

You can sign up and pay here, or at the field.

Here are a few things to remember for the first night, or any night, really.
  • a light and dark shirt, so you're ready to play on either pickup team. If you wear an ambiguously gray shirt, expect unambiguous teasing and ridicule
  • water
  • cleats if you'd like. Many people wear them, but they're not required
