Thank you to everyone who has turned up for these sessions. It's great to see new faces and old, coming together to play some Ultimate Frisbee.
In line with scienentific advice (and we all know you don't f&*^ with science) we're cancelling all sessions until further notice.
Go outside, look after your friends and keep the spirit high in this troubling times.
We'll see you on the other side guys.
You may remember a couple of weeks ago I asked you all your opinions on how much you'd be willing to pay for new DUFFA kit.
The average amount (and by far the most popular amount) you quoted for one shirt was 15.00 GBP. After obtaining more quotes than you can shake a stick at, it's ZONE Ultimate who can offer us the best deal for this price.
15.00 GBP buys you one ZONE Ultimate branded Velocity II sports shirt, which includes printing of the classic DUFFA logo on the front and your choice of name and number of the back. They come in both men's and women's cuts. The DUFFA "home" shirt is red with white print and the "away" shirt is white with red print. If you want both a red "home" shirt and a white "away" shirt that's 30.00 GBP.
We need to submit a minimum order of 50 shirts to get them at this price, but based on previous orders I don't see that being a problem.
To submit your order, simply get in touch with me! You can email email@example.com, call or text 07800 646396 or find me on Facebook (Richard Harrison).
You need to tell me which shirts you would like, your size, the name you want printing and your preferred number. Some numbers are already assigned to players so they'll get first dibs on those particular numbers.
Check out this Google doc for the shirt numbers and the size charts...
The order deadline is 30th June 2015.
I can't order your shirt unless I've received your payment, but I won't be asking for payment until we have the minimum order confirmed.
Any questions, please just ask!
The 7th annual Didsbury Beer Fest provided our DUFFA night out with a concourse of over 100 Real Ales and 20 plus Ciders and Perries, strawberry to pumpkin. Although his dancing on and under the table suffered, we’re still proud of Rich of insisting on trying them all. A half time break with chicken curry and chips kept us buoyant whilst Morgan moved on to judiciously sampling the astringency of DUFFA’s own sponsored barrel – Old Carrock Strong Ale (Hesket Newmarket Brewery). To quote it’s tasting notes, ‘ a classic liquid Christmas pudding flavour’. Just what you’ve always wanted – liquidised Christmas dinner.
What the hop, rye so serious?
Beer uses malted barley, female flower clusters which are coaxed to grow up on strings like grapes on vines. This is the hip hop which ferments into alcohol and gives beer its bitter tangy glory.
I’m partial to a pun, so from the list of 107 Ales in 3rd place: Dark Side of the Moose (Purple Moose Brewery), 2nd: Ale Force (Storm Brewing), and in 1st: Thirst Aid (Sky’s Edge Brewing). I was a little disappointed no one went for Beers for Fears. Phantom of the Hopera, the Hoppler effect, Barley Legal…No?
Hammurabi the 6th Amorite King of Bablyon (1792BC to 1750BC) executed bartenders who watered down the city beer.
At the Wife Carrying World Championships (It’s a Finnish thing), 1st prize is the wife’s weight in beer. (2015 applications are currently open, Smiler with all that bootcamp training you could smash it).
The first professional Brewers were women. (No wonder Charlotte and Comrie conquered the 3 pint challenge).
The builders of the Great Pyramid of Giza were paid with a daily ration of beer.
And for our absent Sören, Germany has a 5km beer pipeline connecting the towns of Veltsin to Arena.
Our final fact goes out to all our brewdooed brains the following morning - the word 'hangover' in Norwegian means 'Carpenters in the head'.
So until next time. See you on the 13/12/2014 for DUFFA does Christmas
