UUT 2020

UUT 2020
Dear friends,
Unfortunately, due to the reasons listed below, UUT will be postponed until a later date. The situation in the Netherlands and surrounding countries developed quite drastically over the last week. On March 12 the Dutch government announced a new national policy which cancels all gatherings and/or events with an expected attendance of more than a 100 people. All universities in the Netherlands suspended one site learning until the end of the month and generally people are encouraged to work from home. In the countries surrounding the Netherlands, including those where our participating teams are coming from, similar policies have been or are expected to be issued in the near future.For frisbee specifically, the Dutch Frisbee Association (NFB) cancelled competition days and advised to cancel upcoming tournaments. We have seen comparable advice published by other European Flying Disc Federations. Besides, Ultimate tournaments are exactly the kind of event authorities warn about: it often involves travelling large distances, our discs travel from hand to hand, we sleep and sit close together, share our drinking bottles and food, and celebrate with spirit circles and high fives. Limiting the spread of the virus has to be a common effort as we try to protect our more vulnerable friends, family and loved ones. This is a responsibility we, as a part of the international frisbee community, take very seriously. Unfortunately, this means that UUT this Easter, 10-12th April 2020, is called off. We expected 150 players, placing the tournament above the safety limit and most of these players coming from abroad, making it a particularly uncertain situation. The teams and players that already paid team and/or player fees will receive refunds in the coming days. There is no one more disappointed about the cancellation than us. Many of you were returning to the tournament, and we were extremely excited to welcome our old and new friends. The messages we received so far were full of enthusiasm, which is what every organizer dreams of. Because of this, we will try to organize UUT 2020 on a later date, when the situation has calmed down. Currently, we estimate that this will likely be towards the end of the summer. Let us know at uut.amsterdam@gmail.com if you would be interested in a postponed UUT – no matter if you have been registered for the original Easter UUT or not!Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this will cause and hopefully eventually see you at a UUT 2020.2! Thank you for your understanding!
Cheers friends, lots of love, and stay safe and healthy,
The UUT Team

All the essential meals will be covered by us: Saturday we will provide you with breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sunday we will provide you with breakfast and lunch.

Party Theme

Once upon a time, there was a tournament called UUT
The king and his counselors sat around a table
Discussing what this year’s theme should be
They debated for seven nights until the king hails 
‘Stop looking so troubled, because I’ve decided
The theme for this year will be fairytales!’
Student teams, dig up your best costume
On April 11th and 12th, we’ll play ultimate
So travel to Amsterdam, by carriage or broom
The council callled out ‘that sounds great, but is that all?’
‘Of course not,’ the king said, ‘there will be great food,
Magical pastimes and we’ll end the festivities with a ball’
We know that with you this adventure will be even better
So pick up your disc and quill and write us a letter!
