DUFFA Ultrastar Animated Spinning Disc

 


Disc Golf is coming to Manchester!

March 27, 2014

DUFFA was approached by the Friends of Longford Park and Trafford Council (one of the Borough Counciles of Greater Manchester) to look at developing a disc golf course on a disused pitch and putt course. We're pleased to say that this Saturday sees the installation of the first three holes!

DUFFA.org New Website Design is live!

March 25, 2014

DUFFA is pleased to present it's new website design.  Our old design has served us for 7 wonderful years but we felt it was time for a freshen up and for the site to be inline with our club colours. The world has changed since our first site launched, mobiles and tablets have become the norm and as a result we've made our design "responsive" - this means that whatever your flavour and size of browser our site will scale to fit.

Let us know what you think or if you spot any issues.

DUFFA Ultra-Massive-Christmas-Bash!!

December 1, 2013

Our very own Mark Mynett has been busy organising this year's Christmas social, and we're sure you'll agree he's come up with a cracker!

On Saturday 21st December we'll be meeting at 2pm at Silver Blades Ice Rink in Altrincham for a two-hour ice-skating session.

From there, we'll be heading to Altrincham's Belgian Beer Bars, recently voted the No. 1 place in the UK for a festive pub crawl! After a drink and a bite to eat we'll head back into Manchester for the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Night at Band On The Wall.

*****IMPORTANT*****

It's advised you purchase tickets for Band On The Wall as soon as possible as the event will sell out!

More details on the Christmas social can be found on our Facebook page.

DUFFA is Six - Our Annual Birthday Party and Mini-hat

April 19, 2013


To celebrate our club hitting the grand old age of SIX(!) we will be having a mini hat tournament at Fog Lane Park, and then a barbecue with quaffing of fine ales and spirits later on! 

The mini hat will involve four to five teams with different coloured teams using bibs.

We'll all then get clean (people who live outside Didsbury will be able to use our showers) and meet at Rich & Simon's house for a BBQ - bring your own meat and beer, we'll sort the BBQ (starting around 5.30pm)! 

There will be the DUFFA AGM - we'll nominate and vote on a Committee for the next year. This is your chance to give a little something back to the club - we're looking for Committee members that can help the club along. All roles are available for nominations (Treasurer, Chair and Secretary included!), if you'd like to be involved please put yourself forward. 

We'll be running our popular awards ceremony - voting details and categories to be announced before the day! 

Bring some beer and meat (or veggie burgers)!
 

DUFFA Hat Sells Out... in FOUR Minutes

April 19, 2013

Proof, if it were needed, that Ultimate is exploding in the UK - DUFFA Hat 2013 sold out 4 minutes after registration opened. We actually oversold a number of spaces as the server struggled to keep up with the demand.

We've refunded everyone that we can't fit in and we've placed them on a priority waiting list.

DUFFA's 4 Team Indoor Rotation Schedule!

Perhaps this might help someone some day but we needed somewhere handy to keep this.

When we run indoor sessions any number of people from 12 - 25 can turn up! We usually have three teams (of about 6-7 players) but sometimes we need four teams. When this happens I have to scratch my head to come up with the following rotation.  Not any more!

1. Darks vs Reds
2. Yellow vs White
3. White vs Dark
4. Red vs Yellow
5. White vs Red
6.  Dark vs Yellow

Transatlantic Manchester Ultimate Frisbee Derby

April 15, 2011

Traditionally a derby is played by two close teams. We have a twinned club in Manchester, New Hampshire. The 3140 miles separating the two clubs shouldn't be an issue I feel to hosting a derby.

To make this work DUFFA and MUFF will both play a fixture at their home grounds. We'll split our squad and call half "MUFF" and they will play on behalf of our transatlantic cousins. The other half will wear the DUFFA shirt with the spirit and pride we all know.

The game will be 50 minutes - no cap. We'll keep the scores secret until both games have been played and announce the winner (summing the scores). In the event of a tie away points will count as two.

To make this work anyone playing will have a shirt - a special commemorative DUFFA / MUFF Derby shirt with a unique logo. we're hoping to get these made for less than GBP8 but you would be committing to playing for this if you sign up.

We're going to try really hard to get our local newspapers, radio (possibly even local TV!) to cover this.
