D-CUUP jersey design

The men have C.U.U.P., i.e. China United Ultimate Party, with jersey designs and all.

It is only fitting that China's women's team at Manila should go as D-CUUP, and with awesome jerseys to boot.

Witness: Danica May's jersey designs, a sample of which is above.

No final decision has been made on which design will be used, so voice your opinion here if you have one.

The acronym on the shorts, I've been told, is "Damn Cute Underwear Underneath Pants."

Shanghai Hat Tourney over national holiday (Oct. 4)

From Shanghai Ultimate’s blog: http://shanghaiultimate.blog.com/2009/09/12/hello-world/

Looking for something to do this October holiday and want to avoid the crowds? Come down for the first annual SUPA National Day Hat Tournament.

The details:

October 4, 2009
SRFC Fields

Yup, just RMB50 for a full day of playing. Food (BBQ) and drinks (beers and more) available on the field at steep discounts.

If you’re coming from out of town, we’ll do our best to find you housing for the weekend, or, worst case, help you find a cheap hostel and someone to ride to the fields with.

Players of all levels welcome!

Get a hold of Geoff at geoffgng@gmail.com to sign up.

Congratulations to Shanghai Huwa, winners of the Dalian tournament

Beijing Big Brother finished second. More details in the coming days.

Qingdao Beach Hat Cancelled! 公开赛取消通知!

Sad news from Ed, Qingdao Beach Hat Tourney tournament director:


I’m very sorry to announce that the decision has been made to postpone the proposed Qingdao Beach Hat. Several unforeseen circumstances have recently gone against the tournament which has meant it s no longer financially or practically viable.
The beach management company changed their decision to let us use the beach for free, and their rental demands are far too high and cannot be realistically met. This coupled with the fact that in October there is tournament congestion with HK and Boracy on the weekends following the proposed date for Beach Hat, meant fewer people than expected seemed willing to participate in the tournament.
There has also been some smaller issues such as the hostel on the beach closing down unexpectedly last week, this was due to house all players and host the party. Also what was thought to be temporary swimming pool was put up over one of the proposed field areas, we’ve been told this is now a permanent fixture meaning one of the proposed fields would be greatly reduced in size.
A lot has been learnt in trying to prepare this tournament and hopefully when a new date is set the tournament will be better for it.Thank you to all those who expressed interest, enthusiasm and advice for the tourney.
Please let your respective players and teams be aware of this news.

A question from Kunming Hat Tourney organizers

From Barbara (simelebp@gmail.com) in Kunming:

Hey guys!

We got a sweet crowd of returning and new players here in Kunming and are thinking about organizing the second annual KM hat tournament. Since none of us have tournament organizing experience, we wanted to get an early start. So a few questions:

1. Would you be interested in coming to a Kunming Hat Tournament?
2. When would be a good time to hold said tournament? We don’t have to
do it at the same time as last year. [Last year it was Feb. 7]
3. Any suggestions on how to organize a tournament?

Please fill out the survey here.

As a participant in the first annual Kunming Hat Tourney, we’ll throw in our endorsement. If you haven’t been to Yunnan, take this opportunity to go.
