So for only $50 your friends can play outdoor Ultimate this Fall and for current TUC members it’s as little as $15!!!
Please forward this email to your friends, post in your workplace, and blab about in general. This promises to be the most action-packed Fall League yet!

Hat Tournament – Saturday, August 18th
The next great TUC tourney is just around the corner. On Saturday, August 18th, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., we will be hosting a Hat Tournament at Riverdale Park East. Registration is now open for both TUC and non-TUC players. This tournament is FREE for all TUC members and only $15 for non-TUC players. The registration deadline is Thursday, August 16th so get signed up before it’s too late!
Playoff registration opens August 20 and is open to all TUC Summer League teams (and it's free!). All playoff games will take place at beautiful Sunnybrook Park. The playoffs for Monday and Tuesday Leagues will take place on September 8-9 (all day both days) and the playoffs for Wednesday and Thursday Leagues will take place on September 15-16 (all day both days). Registration for Monday/Tuesday teams ends September 3 and registration for Wednesday/Thursday teams closes September 10. A reminder to teams that if you wish to participate in the playoffs, have a full roster (minimum 6 games on the weekend)! If you cannot field a proper team or do not wish to participate, then simply do not register your team.
Any person who is not a ‘regular player’ on their team roster may not be permitted to participate in the playoffs. This rule will be enforced to the top 16 seed teams in each league (please note this applies to the top 16 seeds PARTICIPATING in the playoffs. Therefore if you finish 18th overall in your league, and two top-16 teams choose not to participate in playoffs, that makes your team a top-16 playoff seeded team!) Lower seeded teams will be allowed to pickup TUC member subs or merge with other TUC teams, but this must be declared to TUC.
Furthermore, all regular players must play a minimum of 5 games with your team in order to be eligible to participate with your team in the playoffs. These 5 games must be completed by the end of the regular season.
The TUC Team

Thanks Mark, we appreciate your efforts!
