A new Open Division ultimate team is forming in the Denver/Boulder metro area. The team will travel and compete at a national level. Anyone interested in trying out should subscribe to the Google Group or contact me (degnan at gmail), or Matt Baumgart (matthew.baumgart at gmail).
(A word on Sack Lunch: that team has decided not to continue its course in 2008. This leaves a void in the Front Range's club open scene, which this new team will fill.)
Baums and I are only organizing this initial phase; once the team has been built, the door will be open for long-term team leadership, final practice and tournament schedules, etc, to be decided by the team as a whole. That said, the team will play Colorado Cup, travel to 1-3 out-of-state tournaments, and compete in the UPA Club Series. We would also encourage interested players in Ft Collins, Colorado Springs, and the mountain towns to get in touch.
It's hard to organize a team without a name, so we'll call this thing Team X for now. See you on the field.
