Hope everyone’s deadlines have been handed safely in and revision is going well.
On Bank Holiday Monday 27th May 2013 we will be hosting a hat tournament right here in Brighton. A hat tournament is where everyone enters as individuals and teams are drawn at random. It’s a popular format in ultimate as it makes for fun games, spirited competition and is a great way to meet new players.
So there are two things:
Firstly, you should play! Not only will it be supporting your club’s event, but it will also give you the chance to meet some great players from around Brighton. It will be great chance to meet the Brighton Ultimate captains and start to get involved with the club. There is a huge ultimate community in Brighton and I’m hoping we can help to bring more people together with this event. It’ll also be great fun and a good break from studying.
Secondly, you should help out! There’s lots that can be done to help make the event a success – both on the day and in advance. It might be as easy as encouraging another Mohawk or a Panther or someone else to sign up and play, or by sharing, liking etc on Facebook. On the day there’ll be lots of odd jobs and I hope that all Mohawks will pitch it to make it work as the profits from the event will go to help the club next year (that’s money in your pocket!).
To play you need to register using the following form:
Mohawks Hat Registration
… and also pay the player fee of £7.50. For this you get an afternoon’s ultimate played on lined pitches, lunch, great prizes and great company. (Note that payment is to a different account from normal Mohawks activity, but rest assured it’s going to the club).
After you’ve paid and signed up there’s also the Facebook event which you should help to promote.
If I don’t see you before, I hope to see you on the 27th!
