A "hat" tournament is one in which players sign up individually, and teams are then drawn (from a hat). We will do our best to ensure an even distribution of skill levels.
All players will receive a player pack with various goodies, including an official tournament T-shirt and disc. Volunteers will receive a T-shirt. The MUFC will also have its other merchandise (shirts, stickers, discs) available for sale. Refreshments will also be available for sale, but you are welcome to bring your own. As this tournament is on school district property, no alcohol or smoking is allowed on the grounds.
All proceeds go to the Manitowoc Ultimate Frisbee Concern, a non-profit organization.
Saturday, July 28th, 2007. This will be an all-day event. Check-in will begin at 9:00 AM (subject to change), with teams being drawn and play beginning at 10:00 AM. We also have the following day, Sunday July 29th, reserved as a bad-weather alternate.
The tournament will be held at the MPSD Soccer Complex on South 35th Street in Manitowoc. From I-43, take Exit 149 to Manitowoc. Turn west and proceed for about a mile to Dewey Street.

Restrooms are available in the pavillion in neighboring Dewey Street Park, roughly 100 feet from the soccer fields.
The MPRD will need volunteers to help with the operation of the tournament. These duties might include helping with player check-in, selling refreshments and cleaning up afterward. Due to our non-profit status, Lincoln High School students can earn time towards their community service requirement by volunteering with the MUFC.
