* I ask for extended sleep ins on all days following nights that I engage in over-excessive drinking.
* I also request that people get in their requests now for pissy's consideration so I don't get yelled at on the GC when you didn't have your say now.
* Can I also request 1 hug per day timetabled into the draw Smiley

I'll give you a hug... but I seriously doubt I'll limit myself to one hug per day...

Nominations are now open for the 2009 Martin Laird Award.

The Martin Laird Award is an award that seeks to recognise the achievements and efforts of Australian university ultimate players. We're not after the "best" player - we want to find the unheralded stars of the uni scene. The players who wear their team's colours with pride. The players who put in the effort at training and tournaments week after week. The players who help keep their club running. And the players who are the Nationals winners in years to come.

Each university club can nominate up to two players (one male and one female). Please include their name, their jersey number, a photo and a brief write-up on why they are being nominated.

Please visit this link for more information about the award, including the full criteria.

Please send your nominations to [email protected] before Sunday September 14th.

Nominations will be posted to the website as they are received.

Email me if you have any questions.

Simon Talbot

Swiss draw format...can someone explain that too me, the number of different explanations we received last week confused the crap out of me. In the end we decided to just finish above the teams that had to go into the swiss draw so we wouldn't have to think too much.

I thought the draw in Melbourne last year was fine. Keeping it simple with initial pools based on the number of teams, splitting into top and bottom pools for crossovers to determine seeding into the quarters/semis. Aiming for 9-11 games over the 5 days.

Based on my 5 minute wikipedia understanding of the Swiss system...I don't like it. Having to determine the draw after every single game with a complicated system that not everyone will understand seems like a disaster waiting to happen. Nobody will know where they are supposed to play, against whom or when without everyone trekking back to frisbee central and waiting for the poor volunteers to work it all out. Also, no matter how "bad" a predetermined draw is, at least everyone gets a good look at it in advance and can work out what they need to do to win.

Yeah, it's easy enough for the large, experienced squads. The change is more accommodating to the mid-to-lower level teams who bring squads of 12 with about 20 games of experience between them.

The warmer weather also makes a difference. I remember the Friday games in 07 being more frisbee than ultimate.

QUT has 11 atm. not having a medical program really kills the retention rate. 3 returning wooden spooners this year.

Just for the benefit of the Newcastle folk, the draw will most definitely NOT be Swiss format.


It will be a reclassification (ie: same as last year) format. Likely to be less games (9-10 for the week) than last year as we have limited field space this time around. Looking at maximum 3 games per day, the usual Wednesday arvo off and one game on Friday. Any complaints on that?


Also, does anyone know if the following teams are coming this year...
- Murdoch
- ECU
- Wollongong
- CSU
Haven't heard anything definitive from them for a while now.

I have a friend at 'Gong, and they are organising a team. In fact my sis might be playing on it. Tiger - you're in.
