Bring Your Disc to Work Day: September 29!

September 26th, 2016

paigebydyddForget professionalism. Forget the work ethic. What are you bringing to work on Thursday September 29? Your favorite ultimate disc, that’s what! In an effort to promote the sport, Ultimate Canada is asking all dedicated players to bring their disc to work. Invite a few colleagues to toss with you. Whatever floats your boat!

UC is also hosting a photo contest (with a category for best animated GIF). You can check it out (and presumably upload your pics) here. You’ve got to beat that cute baby, though.

Normally, babies are super easy to defeat at ultimate, but not this time.

Harvest Xll

September 20th, 2016
Harvest Xll

PUL hosted the 12th annual Harvest tournament this weekend and not even a rainy Saturday could deter the participants from having a great time. In true PUL fashion, this event was made possible by an excellent and dedicated volunteer group. A very big thank you goes out to all those who helped. If you see one of the people listed below, please thank them for generously giving their time to help showcase what PUL is all about. A vibrant and fun ultimate community!

Here is the list of our awesome volunteers who helped with anything from cookie baking, soup making, logo design, and the daily operations of the tournament. Aaron Rutter, Adrienne Boyer, Andrea Maxie, Caitlyn Howe, Cam Taylor, Cara Rutter, Corey Duff, Dave Beardmore, Darryl LaPlante, Deanna Vandenbroek, George Kovacs, Holly Simpson, Isaiah Kightley, Jen Kazda, Jocelyn Blazey, John Desbiens, Kate MacIsaac, Krista Lavery, Marj McDonald, Richard Haight, Ryan Lowe, Sam Morris, Steph Wood, Suzanne Galloway, Tara MacLeod, Tanya Rizza, Theresa Sullivan, and Tyler Steeves. Thanks again volunteers, you rock!!
Harvest kicked off Friday night with help from Jeremy Moore @ SteamWhistle, and a generous donation of tasty hops as people quench their thirst from a fun and entertaining glow game.
Saturday, though wet, was an amazing day of Ultimate. Competition was capped off by an MTA tie breaking competition, where Peterborough’s own Gobinde Soligo had a top time of 7.32. After a wet and competitive day of ultimate nothing beats sitting down to enjoy a fabulous dinner, of wine, soup, pizza, and bread than with 225+ members from different ultimate communities across Ontario and Quebec. Thanks to Tim, Yannick and the C’est Chaud staff for supplying the delicious pizza’s, Jeremy Fletcher @ The Electric City Bread Co. for supplying fresh and filling bread, The Wine Shoppe on Park for helping with our Harvest wine and especially to our very own soup makers.
The Saturday night party was held at Dr. J’s where Pax 6 and Les Polatouches went head to head (or drink for drink) to see who could “win the party”. Both teams claimed they were victorious, but we’re looking for a re-match next year before we declare a winner.
The Peterborough Huskies started our Sunday off with a delicious pancake breakfast, where Harvest participants donated enough money to sponsor a player for one season. Way to go everyone, glad we’re able to give back. Top Gunned was voted for playing with the best spirit for a second year in a row, and Highland Hucker’s took home the Braggart’s bushel.
The championship game pitted BUS against a majority rostered Peterborough team, Bone Soup. The game was observed by Richard Haight and George Kovacs with help from Aaron Rutter and Dave Beardmore. Spirit of the game and great competition were blended perfectly in this hard fought match up as Bone Soup came away the 2016, 12th annual, Harvest tournament champions!!  The Harvest championship prizes were made possible with help from Adrienne Boyer and Renegade apparel.
Thanks to all of you who made this weekend such a great success. We’re already looking forward to next year.

Indoor is coming…to those who are patient

September 20th, 2016

Now that Harvest has come and gone, many of us are looking forward to some Indoor Ultimate. Do you believe in the No Wind Scenario? I sure do.

New coordinators Sam Morris (Mighty Mondays) and Holly MacEnaney (Thundering Thursdays, formerly of the MMs) will have it all in hand soon, so don’t be harassing them just yet. The registration process will kick off right here in a week or two, and the two seasons start in the usual late October/early November.
