Open Sectionals this Weekend


Two UPA section tournaments this weekend featuring a glut of Canadian teams.

Washington / BC Open Sectionals

Where: Burlington, WA

Canadian Teams: Furious George, Blackfish

Notes: This is one of the toughest sectionals out there folks. It will be interesting to see how the teams rank after the tournament. Sockeye and Furious are heavy favorites, but Seattle's second team (Voodoo) is a B team in name only.

Upstate New York Open Sectionals

Where: Rochester

Canadian Teams (Unofficial): GOAT, Grand Trunk, Phoenix, Firebird

Notes: Should be a cakewalk for GOAT. Zebra Muscles will look to give them a tough game.

Does Canadian Ultimate Need a Hall of Fame?

An interesting thread has been started on the Ottawa Carleton site. Essentially, a committee has been set up to evaluate and select the first class of a new Ottawa Ultimate Hall Of Fame.

I think it's a great idea. I think we should consider it for Canada as a whole (Through CUPA).

Some issues would be outstanding should the powers to be decide on a Canadian HOF:
  • We have no stats to decipher the good from great
  • We would have to determine what categories such a hall would have, and what would be the criteria
  • We'd have to select a solid impartial selection committee (No CP writers, please!)
So, is a Canadian HOF a good idea? Who from your area would be first ballot candidates?
