I know this will vary as per each uni's sporting requirements, but the package I have to buy to play EUG's  for Mac is $400. Frankly, that's not worth it for me. As someone who is saving up for a mixed campaign (uni and club), another Melbourne Hat trip, World Clubs next year and all the non-essentials like textbooks and groceries, it just doesn't seem worth it.

Everyone I've spoken to about this from my uni (ie just Nathan Wong) finds it similarly ludicrous and most likely won't be going, especially given that there's another mixed frisbee tournament in Bathurst that will cost me one quarter what EUG's is asking, if that.

I know right. I was totally excited about the mixed season, too.

Yeah it's bullshit how much we're getting charged... but given I just paid my first installment and I'm back for the first time in 5 years I'm sorry Tiggsie you have to come... If you don't I'm going to bitch slap you all the way to Bathurst... and then I'll tell Hayley that you're not going to EUGs with her, and what she will do to you if you don't go will make a bitch slapping seem pleasant...

Hey Tiger.... I may need a 2nd in charge..
Since I've had muffin work with me before and there is already a cupcake... I could call you Cookie (as in Gingernut) if you want to come and work for Bozz (meaning you only need to sort out accommodation and beer/food (notice which one came first!)

I'm scheduling a meeting with those in charge of SUSF, including trying to get my hands on policies etc that simmo you can use to perhaps draft a letter.

Not going to give up just yet...

Just to check, AUGs is 2 divisions this year, and we can choose where to enter our team?

Thanks

You can choose. But as medalists last year, you'll be in div 1.

Brett-ems, you get a second suufa team in, i'll buy you a beer.

Woot QUT and UQ have pretty much ditched NUG's to my knowledge. UQ was thinking EUG's.

As for AUG from queensland you can expect GU (headed by cupcake), QUT (headed by Reece Stewart with an international flavour) and UQ (if they get girls, Full nats level guys though). SCU is trying to get a team together although it will be crap probably.

Strictly speaking, this is how it will work...

- Your uni applies to be in a division via your Uni Team Manager

- AUS comes to me with a list of who has registered in what division

- I'll review and provide a recommendation of who goes where. If I want to make a change to where a team applied to go, it will be after discussions with the team. Law of common sense will apply (eg: if UQ apply to be in Div2, I'll tell them to stop being knobs and put them in Div1). This also happens with seedings and draw format.

- AUS will then consider my recommendations and release the draw, complete with divisions and seedings. Last year we were fortunate enough to have AUS accept my recommended seedings and draw format, but not timeslots and field layout. They still have the final say in everything.


I'm keen to see a 16 team Div1 and 8-10 team Div2. At the moment, AUS want it the other way around. But if enough teams apply for Div1 and I can provide a draw structure for the large-Div1-small-Div2 setup that works, they'll probably accept it because it means less work for them.

I should note at this point there's going to be less games per team this year (8-9 for Div1, 7-8 for Div2) based on recommendations from last year's team manager's meeting, plus the fact we have more teams and same field space.

Monash are thinking about it as the Monash Sport provided uniforms are hideous. Will depend on fundraising and overall team consensus

BUUF went with Zone this year. They're pretty flexible with printing options and will adapt to whatever design you can come up with. Cheap, too.

So are we.

Yo Jangles, QUT and UQ are most welcome at EUGs. Its the place to be this year. 12 teams in and the rego doesn't close for another week or so. It will be awesome. UQ were certainly plenty of fun last year.

If any of you southern teams wanna come play a real regional uni tournament, you should think about coming to EUGs too.

USYD are given shorts for AUGs, and we are sticking with gregros for our shirts - keep an eye out for our new dark strip at AUGs! Actually it's pretty much the inverse of last years white strip, but cool nonetheless.

Never heard of Zone before, will have to check them out...

Base shirt price includes name and number printing. Only $1 USD for front logo printing. Prices are pretty much unbeatable. They also reduce shipping costs as they ship from Vietnam (where they are produced) instead of having to come from the US.

I'm putting in a 5 ultimate order for some shorts.  Not sure if I'd be keen to ship things to perth though... Tongue

So far I've got about 30 odd pairs of shorts on the order list, and they should work out to be less than $30 AUD including shipping

They did the Melb hat stuff from last year... you'd have seen that around. And the Captain Mel shirts and a host of others you can see about the place
