Goosebowl 2013

Posted by Joel on August 23, 2013

Kingston Ultimate is partnering up with Queen's University to bring back the Goose. For those that don't know, Goosebowl is an annual co-ed tournament hosted by Kingston. The tournament is typically held on the last weekend of October (Halloween weekend), and yes costumes are highly encouraged.

More information about the tournament can be found at goosebowl.com.

But I digress, the purpose of this post is to ask for help from the ultimate community. We are looking for sponsors for the tournament. In particular we are trying to offset our costs by securing a beer company to sponsor the Saturday night party. If anyone has connections to a beer company or beer rep, please email info@kingstonultimate.ca.

Any other sponsors ideas are welcome as well.

Lastly, we will again be looking for volunteers to help run the tournament. If interested please email info@kingstonultimate.ca.

Game On

Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2013

Posted by Joel on August 7, 2013

As of now games are on for tonight, but the forecast is a little bleak. If it rains, but the rain isn't heavy, then please continue with your game. If the rain is heavy and the fields are getting saturated (ie. standing water or the field squishes as you run on it), or if there is a thunderstorm, please halt your game. If the storm blows by and the fields aren't saturated, then feel free to resume the game.

If you play a part of your game and have to stop due to the weather, then the score you reach when you stop will count. If you aren't able to play tonight then your ranking for next week's playoff round will stay the same as this week.
