E-mail lists, open play/pickup, and other topics
So, we’ve had a little change here at BUDA. Our old e-mail list disappeared a couple of weeks ago. We’re not sure what happened to it or where it went. We are reasonably confident, however, that it’s not coming back.
Therefore, we’ve switched to Constant Contact for communicating with BUDA members. We’ve built a list of e-mail addresses from our most recent Summer and Winter League rosters.
We’ll use these e-mails to inform you about BUDA-related events. We’ll be judicious about it and not flood your inbox. Occasionally, we may pass along other information that we think you might be interested in. We’ll flag that by starting the subject line with the word “SPAM,” indicating that it’s not directly Frisbee-related.
Unlike our old e-mail list, Constant Contact does not allow everyone on the list to post an e-mail. If you want something sent to BUDA members, please e-mail me email@example.com, and I can pass it along or you can friend us on facebook and post on the wall.
If you want to receive them at a different e-mail address, or if you know of somebody who wants to be added to the list, or if you want to pass along any good jokes, please e-mail me.
Here are other ways to keep up with BUDA:

For the past few years, I’ve been e-mailing every Friday to let y’all know of the upcoming opportunities for pickup/open play. Here’s what’s going on over the next few days:
Today, if the rain quits (the field is very sandy and drains very well), the KBR folks plan to play over lunch at Loch Haven field, 3437 Loch Haven Drive, Hoover, AL 35216. Everyone’s welcome. First pull is theoretically at 11:45but in reality probably a little after noon. E-mail Chris Laney at firstname.lastname@example.org by 10 a.m. if you want to play.
Sunday, 1 p.m., Patriot Park, 710 Oak Grove Road, Homewood, AL 35209. I may actually be there this week.
Monday, April 7, the KBR group again plays at lunchtime at Loch Haven field. Everyone’s welcome; first pull at noonish. E-mail Chris Laney at email@example.com
I usually continue the e-mail by rambling on about something or other that has nothing to do with ultimate. But this is already long enough and I don’t want to scare anybody off. So have a great weekend, and I’ll see you on the field.
