WUCC Update 2 - OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT 2-1 (18:00hrs Sunday 3/8/14)
03 August 2014
Following careful discussions and inspections today regarding field conditions, player safety, weather considerations and the overall tournament, WFDF with agreement with the TOC would like to issue the following information: OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT 2-1 (18:00hrs Sunday 3/8/14).
WUCC UPDATE - Sunday games are postponed due to flooding
03 August 2014
With the additional rain Saturday morning, many of the fields at the main venue were still flooded as of Saturday evening. WFDF and the tournament organizers have decided that all games on Sunday are canceled. This decision was taken because, even if the standing water had receded by morning, if we had tried to play, the fields would have trashed for the rest of the week as they remained water-soaked. We plan to play as scheduled on Monday and will play the Sunday schedule on Tuesday. More info will be provided once it gets sorted out. Further information:

Latest WFDF Communiques
05 March 2015 - Official Communication
Ultimate Central, an event management platform for the sport of Ultimate, and the World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF), Ultimate's international governing body, today announced a partnership which will allow WFDF to run the WU23 website, payment, registration, schedule creation, and scoring on the Ultimate Central platform.
Recently, WFDF made the strategic decision to unify web platforms and processes around its major events. Historically, independent event organizers were tasked with finding their own web platforms, registration systems, and tournament management systems for scoring, bracket creation, and statistics, and there was little coordination to use what had been developed previously, leading to significant duplication of efforts and inefficiencies. "Ultimate Central's integrated CMS, registration, and tournament management platform will allow us to provide organizers with one single solution to run sanctioned events, saving them time and money of developing and troubleshooting custom systems and making sure event websites remained available for years to come," said Brian Gisel, chair of WFDF's Ultimate Committee.
