DiscNW Supports Propostion 1 - Seattle Parks for All
DiscNW encourages you to vote yes for Proposition 1 on the August ballot. We have an opportunity to provide dedicated, permanent funding for our more than 450 Seattle Parks. Proposition 1 solves our problem of underfunded City parks by establishing a new Park District with dedicated funding for only our Seattle parks.
DiscNW community member Alex Ko is hosting a fundraising house party on July 21. At the party we will raise funds and awareness about the campaign. For more information or to attend the party, please email us at .

U16 Girls' Community Clinics
The DiscNW U16 Girls' YCC team is hosting two free clinics this summer for all girls 16 and under - no experience necessary. Inspired by GUM: Girls' Ultimate Movement, the players want to share their love of the ultimate community and the sport with others.
Clinics take place at Maplewood Playfield (4801 Corson Ave S) on the following dates:
- Tuesday, July 15, 6-9pm
- Monday, July 21, 6-9pm
- Guest Coaches: Alyssa Kelly and Margie Quinn (both of Seattle Underground)
All players must have a parent/guardian signed DiscNW waiver on file for the 2013-14 academic year to be able to participate. Waivers can be signed in two ways:
- Pre-register to sign the waiver online. If you can manage it, we prefer this option so that we know how many players to expect!
- Or, print a paper copy to bring day of the clinic.

Changes to Summer Ultimate Calendar
It is with much sadness that we report that there will be no Spawnfest tournament this summer. For various reasons, it is no longer possible to run the event in a manner befitting its purpose. The long and wonderful history of Spawnfest holds a special place in the hearts of many Northwest ultimate players, and it will be missed.
In its place, we offer a new a new summer tournament to take place at Magnuson Park in Seattle on Saturday, August 16, 2014, the Magnuson 5-on-5. As the name implies, this coed, team tournament will feature smaller sided teams in a more fast-paced game. Online registration is open now.
