This post is long, but full of info you need to know.  Please read to the end!

  1. Drivers for Open Game Today (4/16) - One more driver wouldn't hurt.  So far we have Donna, Mike M., Maggie, and Madalyn. If you're going straight to the game, let coach Chris or captain Paul know.
     
  2. Wednesday practices added - Starting NOW. Same place/time: 3:30, Minikahda. This allows both teams to have 2 practices and a game each week, and one practice where girls and boys can play together.
     
  3. MUS Meeting Minutes (attached) Good details from our meeting. Please read!
     
  4. USA Ultimate membership DUE BY FRIDAY APRIL 17:  We have several players who haven’t yet joined USA Ultimate.  This is a requirement for  getting onto the roster for the State Tournament (May 30-31).
     
  5. Madison Mudbath, April 24-26:  This is the list of players that have told me they want to go. If you want to go, but haven’t RSVP’d yet, do so soon right here. We will cap it at 21. You have to have all your spring MUS registration complete and be in high school.  (See Tournament Info...)

    May 30-31 – State High School Ultimate Tournament (usually in Blaine, MN)
    Sun, June 7, MUS end-of-season party.  3pm – MUS player/alumni game 4:30 – picnic, Minikahda Vista
     
  7. Peanut allergy alert:  We have at least one player this year with severe peanut allergy. Please do not bring peanuts, peanut butter, or peanut snacks/candy.  Other nuts are ok.
     
  8. New Communication Tool Coming Soon – TEAM SNAP
    Several parents have suggested that the TEAM SNAP app will be more efficient for us and we are going to give it a try.  You don’t have to be very tech savvy…messages will appear in your e-mail. But it allows players to indicate whether they are playing in games, allows parents to indicate if they can drive, and keeps track of game schedules/results, etc.   We will pre-load your addresses. You will have to set up a log in once, but that should be it. 

    Once TEAM SNAP is up, we will use it as our primary communication tool.  We will keep the FB page more for general information and player to player communication. 
     
  9. Fundraiser Success: Congrats and thanks to all who participated in the fundraiser. You raised over $3,000 for MUS, which will allow us to buy pop-up canopies for the team and to provide financial assistance to ensure that kids who want to play, can. 
     
  10. Need help finding or acquiring cleats or covering any costs of playing? Ask your coach or Madalyn Cioci. Coaches may have a line on inexpensive options, and MUS can help offset costs for players.

If you’ve read to here, you get a MUS swag cheer. 

Go MUS!
