OCUA Volunteers Needed to work with Rogers TV at No Borders 2009!


As posted on and

The No Borders tournament committee is looking for dedicated volunteers to assist the Rogers TV crew with the filming of the Open and Women’s championship games.

We are looking for 2 – 3 individuals to commentate the elite championship game in both gender divisions. Commentators must dedicate time during the weekend to familiarize themselves with semi-final and final teams, the history of No Borders, and meet Rogers requirements as needed. Knowledge of the game at the competitive level is also required.

Interested individuals should be comfortable speaking about the game both on and off camera and have some media background. Other assets would include experience playing at the competitive level, and experience in high level Ultimate strategy.

The broadcast time for the Women’s finals will be Sunday July 26th from 12:10 pm- 2:40 pm and the Men’s will be Sunday July 26th from 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm. Lunch will be provided to the commentators on the day of filming.

If you are interested in this amazing volunteer opportunity, please submit your name along with a letter explaining how you meet the above mentioned requirements no later than Monday July 13th to

*We will be conducting interviews on July 14th and 15th.

I can't even begin to describe how much I would want to be involved in this excellent project. If only I was on the same continent.

I'm not sure if you have seen any of the Potlach Ultivillage coverage, but from the short clips I've seen, the commentary and play by play seems great and I think that kind of quality needs to be aimed for. Anything is better than Blockstack coverage when they barely know team names let alone players names most of the time.

I hope that I can get my hands on the final product when it airs on Rogers.

Good luck.
