We are done for the season!  We plan to resume on March 15, 2022.

(Nov 1) Game on (season finale!)  Final game of the 2021 season! Unsurprisingly, it will be a little chilly for the final game (but at least not rainy). Forecast is for a game time temperature around 45F, with a moderate wind. Bundle up! Sunset is at 6:26PM, with civil twilight at 6:54PM. Let’s try and get out there just a little bit earlier to end the season, official start will be at 5:15PM tomorrow, please be as prompt as possible (but as always, arrive when you can). Weather permitting, the next Dearborn season will start the week of March 13th, 2022.

(Oct 25) Game on: Wednesday 27 October  Due to the rain of the past day or so, the field condition of the last few weeks, and the forecast for the next few days, we will be delaying our game until Wednesday this week. It’s the penultimate game of the 2021 Dearborn season! The great weather couldn’t last forever, but we’re still doing fairly well for late October. Forecast for Wednesday is a game time temperature around 56F, with light winds. Sunset will be at 6:34 PM, so please continue to be prompt, we’ve been doing pretty well the last few weeks. Game is on at 5:30 PM Wednesday, Stout.

(Oct 18) Game on: Tuesday 19 October  Only 3 weeks remaining in the season! The forecast for tomorrow is looking quite pleasant, with game time temperature of around 70F and a moderate breeze. Sunset is at 6:46PM, so once again please arrive as promptly as possible in order to maximize our playing time. Game is on for tomorrow, 5:30PM, Stout.

(Oct 11) Game on: Tuesday 12 October  Only a few weeks left! Forecast for tomorrow is a game time temperature around 68F, with moderate winds. Sunset is 6:59PM, so please be as prompt as possible. Game is on for tomorrow, 5:30PM, Stout. Note that if the main field is still wet, we may be on the smaller field at the end of the parking lot.

(Oct 4) Game on: Tuesday 5 October  We’ve reached October, but the weather is still quite pleasant this week. Forecast is for a game time temperature around 70F, with fairly mild winds. The days are getting notably shorter (sunset will be at 7:09PM), so please try to arrive as promptly as possible so we can maximize our playing time. Game is on for tomorrow, 5:30PM, Stout.

(Sep 27) Game on: Tuesday 28 September  The weather is finally cooperating to let us play on our regular day. Forecast is for a game time temperature of around 71F, with mild winds. Should be a beautiful day for ultimate. Game is on, tomorrow at 5:30PM, Stout.

(Sep 19) Game on: Monday 20 September  The forecast for this week is looking fairly poor, with rain predicted for the majority of the week. Tomorrow is the most promising of the days, therefore: Game is on for tomorrow, Monday 20 September, 5:30PM, Stout. Forecast is for temperatures around 77F with a moderate wind and a chance of light showers, but there shouldn’t be a thunderstorm, so we’ll plan to play.

(Sep 13) Game on: WEDNESDAY 15 September, 5:30 PM  The weather for tomorrow looks very similar to what last Tuesday looked like (high winds and evening thunderstorms), therefore we will be taking advantage of the fact that DUFL is between leagues to play on Wednesday this week, forecast for temperatures around 75F with light winds. Also note that because we are once again at that time of year when we lose 10+ minutes of daylight a week in the evening, beginning this week the official start time will be 5:30 PM for the remainder of the season. Summary: game is on for Wednesday, 5:30PM, Stout.

(Sep 9) Reminder: Game on tonight  The forecast is looking very nice, with game time temperatures around 72F and a moderate breeze decreasing as we approach sunset. Game is on for tonight, 6PM, Stout. Also: Someone left a pair of cleats at the field last week, green/grey Under Armour size 14. I’ll bring them tonight, please claim them (or email me if you won’t be there tonight so I know who to return them to).

dress warmly.

(March 16) Welcome to the 2021 Dearborn Ultimate season!  First off, having read through what I believe is the relevant documentation, we are allowed to play, we are supposed to wear masks and/or stay at least 6 feet apart. For those of you planning on playing club this year, it seems likely that the USAU will be requiring masks at events, so might as well start getting used to it now.

That being said, much as we have in the past couple of years, early in the season we will aggressively target the best weather of TuWTh for playing, and with that in mind, we’ll be opening the season tomorrow. As we did last year, the plan will be to come out, get some throwing in, and play presuming we have numbers/interest (which we most likely will).

Summary: Season starts tomorrow (March 17th), 6:00 PM, Stout Middle School, bring a mask. Weather should be decent, upper 50s with mild winds, let’s play!

(June 9, 2020) 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. During the early spring season, we will continue our policy of choosing the best day to play based on the forecast, particularly if Tuesday seems as though it will be unplayable. Expect an email on Monday with the day we expect to play that week.  Game on tomorrow, 6PM!
