(June 9) Some tossing today! While there are no plans for an actual game, there will be a couple of people at Stout at 6PM today if anyone else would like to get some throwing in. Bring a face mask, don’t share water, try to maintain distance, etc. Bring water if you’re coming out, it’s going to be hot out. Might play a small game if there are numbers, but expectation is that it will just be throwing. Looking forward, we’re continuing to take cues from what other sports organizations and the USAU are doing, hopefully we’ll be able to start playing regular games again in the upcoming weeks.
(March 23) Suspended for at least three weeks In accordance with Michigan Executive Order 2020-21, Section 2, Dearborn ultimate is cancelled for the next three weeks. Under Section 7.a.1, however, I believe individuals can get together to throw the disc around, as long as they remain at least 6 feet from each other. More information surrounding the Stay Home, Stay Safe order can be found at https://www.michigan.gov/Coronavirus.
Expect another update on April 12th with information about playing that week, or further cancellations if the stay home order is renewed. Until then, stay healthy, try to start conditioning, and hope to see you all on the field in a few weeks.
(March 17) NO Game this week Based on the weather, the low turnout last week, and Ford being in a work from home state, there will be no game in Dearborn this week. Going forward, we are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation, and will make calls as to whether to have a game each week based on factors such as community transmission, guidelines from the CDC, state, county, and city health officials, and, as always, weather conditions. As of this time, our community does not fall under the guidelines restricting gatherings, and so, weather permitting, we will plan to play next week. Expect another email early next week with information on whether we will have a game, and if so, which day it will be.
(March 9) 2020 Season opens tomorrow! Our standard time and location will be Tuesday 6PM at Stout Middle School, as it has been the last several seasons.
