Next Week's Schedule

Posted by Noah on June 25, 2007

Because of the way the ladder works, we can only officially schedule one week at a time. However, we thought it might be useful for you to have some idea of where and when you'll be playing next week, so here's a rough schedule.

Remember that this is the schedule for after teams have been reranked following this week's games, so don't just plan to show up for the game that involves your current ranking and not check the schedule next week, or you'll almost definitely show up at the wrong time and/or place (every team's ranking will change every week, with the possible exception of the top and bottom ranked teams).

Remember that next week you'll be one bracket above or below where you are now, so look at those two games (which one you're in will depend on if you win or lose this week).

Okay, enough caveats:

The Ladder

Posted by Noah on June 23, 2007

The schedule for the first week of the second round is now up. Because of the way the second round works (see below), the schedule can only be posted a week at a time. It's very important for captains to get their scores in as soon as possible after their games, because we need all the scores from one week in order to set the following week's schedule. If we can have all the scores by the end of Thursday, I'll aim to get the schedule up on Friday.

For the next seven weeks we'll use a ladder system, where each team plays a team ranked right beside it (e.g., 1 vs. 2, 3 vs. 4, 5 vs. 6). The winner of each game will be bumped up one bracket, and the loser will be bumped down one bracket (e.g., if 6 beats 5, 6 will be bumped up to 4 for the following week, 5 will be bumped down to 7 for the following week). As a result, every team's rank will change every week. The only exceptions are the top ranked team, who obviously can't move up even if they win, and the bottom ranked team, who can't move down.

This will go on for seven weeks, at which point we'll start the playoffs.

Clinic

Posted by Joel on June 11, 2007

Given the great turnout at the last clinic, we're going to have another one on Monday June 18 at 6pm (fields 3 and 4). This Clinic will be aimed more at intermediate players looking to learn about the strategies used in Ultimate. Topics will include vertical stacks (and how to create space for cutters), Zone offense and defense, and forcing (proper position for the marker as well as those defending the stack).

There is no cost for the clinic and all are welcome to attend.

If you are an experienced player and would like to help out, please be at the field by 5:45

There will still be pick-up on field 5.

Schedules

Posted by Noah on May 23, 2007

We made a minor error on the schedule, and set the late games May 23 for 6:45 -- starting the following week, late games are at 6:55. The schedule reflects this now, but we figured we'd better draw your attention to it. So starting May 30, the early games are at 5:30 with a hard cap at 6:50, and the late games start at 6:55.

We now have another site for games and there have been a few small changes to the schedule - all updates have now been made - please check the schedule to verify your game time and location

The BBQ at the Elixir starts at 7:30pm May 23 (and subsequent Wednesdays), so if you play early you'll have a bit of time off between the end of your game and the start of the BBQ.
