Hey Ultimate Freaks,
Join us to huck some disc at the 6th Annual Cortes Casual Cup on the
May 19th and 20th long weekend! As in past years, this tourney is hat
style, so teams will be created once you arrive. This long weekend is
a good one on Cortes Island with the Seafood Festival on Saturday.
We’ll have a drop in game and registration on Saturday and then the
tourney is a one-day event on Sunday.
The tournament takes place at the Cortes Island School Field. We’ll
party on Sunday night together at the nearby community hall with some
live music and enjoy the fact that Monday is a holiday! Email contact
is gregor...@yahoo.com. Please email me your confirmation sooner
rather than later —preferably by Thursday, May 10th (have to have
number of folks in advance for catered Italian dinner, included in
reg. fee), although being a Cortesian event means you could show up
the day of and still play!
Feel free to spread word of the tourney far and wide and forward this
message on to all your Ultimate playing pals.
Phone contact is 250.935.6641, Greg Osoba’s place.
