Federation calling for new frisbee fanatics

ULTIMATE FRISBEE

THE Dubbo Ultimate Frisbee Federation's (DUFF) Autumn League will start on February 4 with mixed seven-a-side matches for an eight-week competition.

Co-ordinator of DUFF Tim Hosking said they were putting the call out for players and teams to be part of the competition.

"And we are really looking forward to some great matches over February and March," he said.

" We've elected for an earlier competition starting date than normal, given Easter and the school terms, but kept to the school terms as we try to do.

"We're expecting a number of teams to compete for the Autumn League title this year, building on the strength of last year's competitions.

"We had our biggest year so far in 2012, both in the size of the town competitions and with our mixed and opens representative players, and I hope we can go even bigger this year.

"Disc [ultimate frisbee] is the cheapest and fastest non-contact field sport in town, and I encourage everyone who is looking for a good run, great teamwork and lots of fun to give it a try.

"There are no referees in disc as the rules are self-determining - this means no duties, and a clear focus on high spirit of play, something we pride ourselves on."

Hosking also confirmed that DUFF will be getting together a mixed side, Dubbo Meerkats, to represent Dubbo at the Festival of the Muddy Disc, a tournament in early March.

"We'll be competing against teams from Bathurst, Blue Mountains, Mudgee, Temora and Canberra. That should be a lot of fun," he said.

New players are always welcome along, with the competition games running from 6pm to 7pm on Monday nights at the South Dubbo Oval. Registration cost is $25 per player for the season.
