    • Added many photos and new pages to website: about, goals, hat tournament history, clinic & blood drive write-ups, nearby teams, league, meeting minutes

    • We can have email aliases now, and board@phnompenhultimate.com points to everyone who comes to board meetings
  • League
    • In the current standings, the regular season is essentially over now. Will start playoffs early (Nov. 24), seeding teams based on record
    • Dec 14th Saturday night party the night before finals on Jared’s rooftop, timing to be confirmed w/Rodwell & SWA
  • Field fees & Membership
    • Non members pay $3 to play one day of league & pickup
    • Nyko is working with individuals on reduced mid-season membership fees
    • Things to take into account for next season’s fees
      • Q for Greg: Can we give hat registration discount to members?
      • Gold membership: ~$45 (2 more weeks than last season) for Sunday & Wednesday play
      • Platinum: ~$60 to include Tuesday night games at 3g
  • Hold separate gender ultimate day on December 8, try to get more ladies out
  • New player recruitment
    • Some people aren’t returning because they are not having fun, for example getting yelled at during games. Various people have heard this personally from new players
      • Caused in part by 4 team league, which requires everyone we can get to play
        • 3 teams better because: new players are getting intimidated and not returning, not enough women for four teams, everyone is too tired for pickup, pickup starts late and is much shorter, no time for a separate beginner game or drills for advanced players
      • Dale to send out a notice reminding everyone to be welcoming to new players, especially during pickup which is supposed to be for fun. Everyone please remind each other
      • Rob to create an anonymous feedback form to go to friendship-rainbow-committee@phnompenhultimate.com (Dan and Dale) .. done! http://bit.ly/ppua-feedback. Dan and Dale will promote
  • All: if someone shows interest in organizing, invite them to the next board meeting, or encourage them to email the board. Need more help from our community
  • Did Da recruit old-school tall Dino? Who else are we missing who we should get back in touch with?
