Why do Sydneysiders hate leaving Sydney so much?

BUUF's going to Stampede, and hopefully another Vic team or two. Everyone else should too. You don't win Party Of The Year twice in a row by putting on shit tourneys.

Personally I'll be going to both.  It's just very hard to convince people that have only been playing a month or two that it's a good idea to go to Bathurst twice in a row.

UTS will be aiming for div1, but a lot can change between now and the end of the year so we'll see!

How many nights will QUT manage to stay in their accomodation this year? I'll give them less than 48 hours! 

ill go for 24 hours if we are with the rugby boys again. Then back seats all the way baby!!!!!

I might not be there the whole week but might come down for the first few day and maybe the final. Depends if i am employed at the time.

On a side note.  It's going to be pretty hard to convince people to go to the Stampede AND EUGs in Bathurst...

Well given I have classes clashing with the Stampede my decision has been made... which blows my chance of getting the hat trick =(

Macquarie will want to play division 1.

You mean Nikki will kick our asses if we don't...

Well, when I say "no one will be forced into a division", I mean that "if any of 2008's quarter finalists, or UQ, tries to enter Div2, I'll tell them to stop being silly and put them in Div1."

Nice move.

UQ: GAINS: everyone, since '08...

Who's got more to add?
I'll add the comment that it could seriously be harder to get one of the 9 male spots on the 2009 UQ AUG team than to make firestorm, and that before factoring the chance of any imports.

Yeah it's not the leaving Sydney part but going to the same place twice in a relatively close time span.
It might kill the novelty of frisbee for the newbies to go to Batho twice.
Cold, rainy and windy Bathurst Sad
Bozz is a great TD but he doesn't have a direct line to the weather gods.
Thankfully, I'm soft and not playing EUGs this year.

Yawn...

On a team like UQ where there are already some big names, timill and dan rule might become lost.

But on a team with Simmo and Doogie......

Onto the next issue:

Travelling to bathurst twice is more about the fact that it is bathurst. Bathurst is known for cold weather, hard fields and +40degree days.... When compared to places like the Gold Coast, or even Melbourne (good night life and sweet public transport), bathurst struggles due to a lack of natural and man-made attractions. Boz rocks and is an excellent TD (he let us play jousting with the AUS' super-expensive flag thingys), so we'll see how much his awesomeness weighs against any of the bad stuff we may run into.

Speaking of losses: we lost our fastest D man (who couldn't throw) and our most consistent handler/experienced player. However we have plenty of returners... Should be fun.

Once again, Dan...do you actually read what you write?

Yes, traveling to the same place twice may make the novelty wear off a bit, spare a thought for teams like CSU, Byron Bay, Traralgon and Townsville, who HAVE to travel if they want to play ANY tournament.

And fuck it, I may as well moan about BUUF's story...we travel to Melbourne (90min) every single week for club trainings and Geelong (60min) for league. Makes two trips to Bathurst seem a bit light on, really.

Amen. And if you even try to tell us that you were talking in farenheit....

Should be a strong AUG by the look of it. Looks like teams will be competing for spots in Div 1. How will they be allocated Pissy? How will you compare teams like UQ, UNSW et al who didnt play 07? Regionals? Boat Race???

Haha jangles, is there much point even booking accom if your only gonna last 24 hours? Might as well cut your losses and tent it at the fields. Also means you get another 15ish minutes sleep in in the morning.

Just to put something to rest...

Regionals was held in ORANGE. ORANGE had the rock hard ground (sorry) and the REALLY hot days!

Weather in Bathurst will be around 5 - 20 degrees between April to July.
I will be putting through all of my favours to get some decent weather for the Stampede this year which is on the 23/24th of May!

I urge EVERYONE to come to BOTH tourneys as they are COMPLETELY different!!!
Stampede is more about having fun, nice start to the mixed season and is aimed at beginner - intermediate teams with some old hands and shenanigans thrown in there.
EUG'S is aimed at Uni teams looking to get their shit down before AUG's!!

Like Simmo has said before, CSU and the BozzBrown Combo (that's me and heather) have brought you the party of the year TWO YEARS in a row now! Now that HAS to be a reason to come to the Stampede where there will be an Ultimate only party that will be EPIC! (no mechanical bull though)

Don't write off going to Bathurst (which is 2.5-3 hrs from Sydney) just because the tournies are within 60 days of each other Smiley
I'll be there for both and I live in Sydney!

Sorry to double post...

But Bathurst is 30-60mins drive MORE then heading to Newcastle (pending on traffic)

Sorry if I come off a little grumpy, but I've done the drive from bathurst to sydney for 4 years now (even for 2 games of Ultimate and then driven back) and it's not THAT far.
