Happy Valentine's Day TUC Members!

Yes it's true, we love our members and we'll go to great lengths to prove it. What we have in store for you this year is an awesome season with plenty of events to keep you coming back to TUC - "The only real game in town". This year, a number of important milestones will be celebrated. In 1980. we started gathering informally and playing regularly down at Kew Gardens in the Beaches. The Toronto Ultimate League was officially formed 20 years ago and evolved into the Toronto Ultimate Club which celebrates it's 10th anniversary as a not-for-profit organization this year. With this rich history of ultimate play, we celebrate "25 SPIRITED YEARS OF ULTIMATE IN T.O."

This game and sport have given much over the years. It is only fitting that TUC, as an organization, recognizes the time for pay back to you, the participants, during this special celebratory season. As part of your membership renewal, you will receive a complimentary TUC designed Original Frisbee Disc, an awesome teaching DVD, a TUC screened white DryFit shirt, the club magazine PIEPLATE and a TUC membership card.

I want it!

What's happening with TUT anyway?

For the past number of years, John Harris, TUC's former GM, ran TUT (Toronto Ultimate Tournament). This year John is unable to continue the tradition and therefore we are looking for a TD - Tournament Director. TUC will continue to assist with online registration services, tournament insurance, cones, and coolers.

If you are interested in running this event on the weekend of May 14/15, 2005 please contact

With a taste of events to come and an exciting, spirited season on the horizon, we hope you renew your membership as soon as possible, when registration opens March 1st.

With Love,
--The Team at TUC
