Disc news

The indoor ultimate season has finished and we are therefore busy preparing the outdoor season. This year in condensed form, with only 4 playing days, since there will be a co-ed league afer the summer break. Not only is that a major difference (less days to play, but a more dynamic system), but I've also got a personal point of pride: the outdoor season is going to see the new Dutch ultimate rules come in effect, which have been prepared by Bart and me. We've sent quite some time in order to get the rules right to our feeling, and we're delighted that they have been accepted almost literally. For example, we have closed a couple of loopholes, added some rules (up till now, it would have been completely legal to play 11 against 4), and re-worded practically all rules in order to make them more consistent.
Then, March 26th is going to be a big day. The NFB is holding its biannual BLV (bondsledenvergadering, "association members' meeting"), and as usual in March, the annual report and financial status for the preceding year will be discussed. Since we became the new board in March 2005, we have started a couple of new projects and we have become involved in a lot of interesting things. Now for the green light, so that we can continue our current line of working. We will, by the way, introduce two new board members -- we've finally got a treasurer, and we have a new enthousiastic board member who will focus on the growth of flying disc sports in the Netherlands: schools, a city league, specific tournaments, etcetera.
So, there's a lot going on. We're really active, and I'm proud to be part of this highly energetic and enthousiastic group :)
