Flinders were at full strength at SUG but Monash (missing Cletus) and Melbourne (Freise and Tarrant) weren't. I reckon that the quarter finals are going to be South-dominated again this year.

Flinders weren't quite at full strength there Simmo. Got a couple of guy pick ups to make (Robbie and maybe Alec) and we were pretty light on in our girls.
But yeah, I think the south is looking great to flood the quarters again.

OK, since everyone keeps asking...

I should have an answer on the squad size next week. The powers-that-be at AUS are reviewing sport rules next week. I submitted a formal proposal requesting the change outlining the reasons so it's now out of my hands.

It was really weird - I had to argue that it was completely necessary for player welfare, but also argue that not many teams would choose the extra 2 so it won't result in dozens more people they have to account for. But the overall argument was that "it brings AUG squads into line with other national events".

But Simmo, there aren't any number limits on Nationals and Mixed Nationals rosters!

I know that, but AUS like their events being regarded as important national-level competitions.

Yay for Simmo. I'm so glad there is a voice of reason in the whole unigames process now...I'm still recovering from the mental scars of 2007, I hope to one day take the unigames field again...

5 days of ultimate can be pretty hard on uni teams.  Considering average squad size for nationals would be 16-18 and that's with 1 less day and less games per day (on average).  Not that you can compare AUGs to nationals in terms of intensity though...

Any idea what the situation with lunches is going to be this year? 

How goes the efforts of making a crazy ANU team out of postgrads twats?  Got Waz, Matt and Jonno to enrol at ANU yet? Tongue

Bozza probably has a better idea of lunches that I do. Once a Competition Manager is appointed I have very little to do with the operational aspects of AUG.


By the way folks, Martin Laird Award nominations open on August 1st.

My efforts are for heaps in the future... I'm rather busy until 2011, so probably have to wait till then.

I was going to get to this...

How were lunches at AUG08? What were you offered? How was it? Suggestions?

P.S Simmo, I just saw you from the VB ad on the NRL Footy Show like a bajillion times!!

Re: Increased team size, on the EUG post-tournament survey, I tried to get everyone there to circle the box about team size and request an increase to 18 - however after talking with the Sydney Uni AUS liason he said that the rules were set in concrete for 2009 - is this true? If so hopefully it will change in the future, but as for '09, we are making our selections within about a fortnight, including final details to SUSF. Any idea what the timeline is for this?

Well done bringing this to them, just shows that no one at AUS really has any idea how Ultimate is played...

I don't intend to offend anyone but lunches at AUG last year were pretty bad...we often ended up getting our own stuff anyway. I think nationals style lunches with rolls, ham, cheese, etc etc, chips, choc/lollies, fruit would be awesome...however i do understand that cost is an issue.

Did you have to pay extra on top of the player fee paid to AUS?

Also what was the lunch for AUG's last year? (and was there a cost?)

I'm glad someone decided to respond to the post Smiley

The lunches were corporate style lunches - each player (well in the end there was massive problems with people missing out) got a little box with a sandwhich, piece of chocolate/cake, piece of fruit and a juice box. They were OK but not really enough for 3 games a day. We didn't pay anything extra on top of the player fee which is why the AUS guy thought we were a bunch of dicks when we kept complaining Smiley As far as I know we were the only sport to get them. So it was great that they budgeted them for us (because we are so cheap otherwise with no refs etc) but the implementation was not great. If you worked out a budget for frisbee style lunches for all the teams for the 5 days (and had volunteers willing to organise it) and took that to AUS then that might work. Good luck!
