wow, now thats just crazy talk!

Its all systems go to get over there. We hope to return to the old tradition known as 'having warm up tournaments' instead of generally not playing frisbee and hoping that this would make us play better.

Queensland and Canberra are going to run some tournaments. We'll need to sort out some timings to ensure the season runs smoothly this year.

Don't hold that against him too much, though.

I don't think the fact that world games is next year will have much effect on the number of players that head to perth.  The world games hopefuls are only a select few and likely to be playing anyway (whether or not world games was on).  The hardest part women's ultimate is convincing some new players or intermediate players they want to spend the money to go.  Not sure whether our ladies will make it this year.

There is a suggestion going around to start a 2nd-tier nationals tournament for teams that fail to qualify next year. That way B-teams and smaller clubs will have something to play towards for the whole season. I imagine at the beginning there would only be enough teams for an open division.

What do people think of that idea?

Aside from B teams, who didn't go to Nationals this year who would otherwise attend another tournament?

A couple of Eastern region teams missed out and yes....the dreaded B-teams. Fakulti had the only 'pure' (ie, not the firestorm/chilly mixers) B-team that made it to nationals and they came last.

Could be a venue for teams like: HOS youth, Manly, Westies, Umlaut, Newwie B, Fyshwick United 2, third fire storm team, Armidale? the smaller South Australian clubs, Tassy, North Queensland, Byron Bay, Fak B, the B team of whatever rises up out of the ashes of barefoot (Well Heeled? Socks and Sandals? Steel Cap?)

There is a teeming undercurrent of players that want to have more involvement in the open season than a one day tourney and regionals. I imagine that given 'permission' as such to host a 2nd tier national plate comp, they could organise their own tournament and provide some more direction to non-elite single gender ultimate. Eventually, once it has grown a bit more as well, the women would also be able to do the same.

Of course, nationals being in Perth might drive numbers from the East down again...

I think the Westies were a once only thing. Don't think we will have the talent next year to compete, even at regionals.

I think its a good idea. Only problem is numbers. Who would wanna go if there are only going to be 4 teams there?

The newcastle B-team might want to attend a 2nd tier tourney, if it was near. But I can't see them travelling across the country for it.... Unless there is a real push by the players.

These would be the current allocations for Perth (as per AFDA policy)
E5
N2
S3 + 1
W1
NZ 1
Total 13
 
Wildcards (based on attendance at Regionals - NO host Wildcard)
 
If W have 4 teams of 15 (60 players) at regionals and the other regions the same as earlier this year:

Most likely scenario would be  W  N  E (for the 3 Wildcards)

Then if not taken up  E  then W  then N

What is the likelihood of each zone taking their full allocation??
