Pie Plate 2010 – Seeking Advertisers!

The 2010 Pie Plate, TUC’s annual souvenir magazine, will be released in early February 2011. It will be a look back on the year of 2010 as well as a retro reflection of our 30th anniversary. The Pie Plate is posted online (see 2009 Pie Plate here) and made available by hard copy for TUC members.

Each year we offer limited quarter-sized, half-sized, and full-page sized advertising spaces in the Pie Plate. Advertising fees are CHEAP and go towards the cost of design and/or reproduction. Viewership of the Pie Plate is strong amongst the membership and it is a great way to promote your brand to a diverse demographic! If your company is interested in advertising in the Pie Plate please contact before December 22.

TUC All-Nighter Tournament is Back!

It’s been a couple years, but TUC is proud to bring back a classic – the All-Nighter Tournament! An All-Nighter tourney is exactly what it implies – you play Ultimate ALL.NIGHT.LONG.BABY!

You will be guaranteed LOTS of Ultimate (co-ed, 6-on-6, speedpoint), LOTS of prizing and a great social atmosphere. A great way to meet new people, support a charity, and play in your pajamas!

Did you say charity? That’s right, all proceeds from the event will go to Ultimate Peace. Ultimate Peace is a young organization that uses Ultimate Frisbee as a tool to forge friendships and peace between youth of different cultural and social backgrounds. For more information visit

Registration for the TUC All-Nighter opens Monday, January 3. Cost is $40 per TUC member and $50 per non-TUC member. All prices include HST.
