Social Event Fundraiser Saturday, March 31
The tournament schedule can be found here
There will be plenty of food and water provided at the field sites. There will be a sports trainer at the fields. In addition, it is likely that there will be a massage therapist there working for tips.
The games will be USAU sanctioned (last weekend of the regular season). Observers will be available. Whether you want more experience with observers or anticipate a contentious game, there should be enough observers that every game which requests observers will have them.
One of the great things about the tourney is a field site which drains well (can be hard to come by in the Midwest). The tournament will not be cancelled due to typical seasonal weather conditions (dangerous weather is the only thing which would delay tournament play i.e. lightning).
The UW-Madison Rec Sports Department has graciously offered to sponsor our club sports team, the Hodags, allowing us to use the Union South facility.
While the tournament will consist mainly of ten men's college teams, we believe that the event will be a lot of fun. The Someday Foundation will be holding a raffle with items donated from Patagonia, some of Madison's own athletic stores, and ultimate swag from local groups (high schools, Midwest Ultimate, etc).
In addition, there will be a bunch of mini games with prizes ranging from food coupons to discs to anything else we can muster up.
If you or your business has anything they'd like to contribute to the tournement or event, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will accept any contributions any time from now all the way through the event date. It's never to late to get involved!
Last summer (2011), one of the current Hodag players was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma only weeks after our team took 2nd place at the USA Ultimate College National Championships in Boulder, CO. As he made the commute from Madison to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, the expenses of the cancer quickly added up. Thankfully, the Someday Foundation was able to provide his family financial support not available elsewhere.
Our team sought to do something for Pat, our teammate and brother. As a gracious and humble man, Pat quickly redirected our efforts towards supporting the Someday Foundation. We are incredibly thankful for the Someday Foundation. We believe in the cause and hope to express our appreciation with the most fun and successful ultimate frisbee event we can muster.

The best way you can show your support is by coming to the tournament. Rain or shine, we will be outside playing and hope to see lots of friendly faces out there.
There are lots of ways that you can get involved!
We are proud to announce that UW Health Sports Medicine has graciously agreed to provide athletic trainers for the entirety of the Someday tournament!
