At long last the Pie Plate has arrived. For those hidden under a rock, the Pie Plate is TUC’s annual souvenir magazine that comes free with your TUC membership. This new Pie Plate looks back on 2006 and all of the amazing facets of the Toronto Ultimate Club. It is a very visual piece that features lots of great year-round photos, courtesy of www.craigstephenphotography.com. The PL8 also highlights league results, 2005 Club finances, and pressing issues like field status.
To save on mailing costs we will not be mailing the PL8’s this year, but we have provided the magazine online in our Archives section and we will also have a limited supply of hard-copies available at TUC events over the next few months. If you want to make sure you get a copy of Pie Plate contact us at the TUC office or stop by to get a copy.
We hope you enjoy it. Thanks again to all of our Pie Plate contributors!
