UNC Evening Pickup (Under the Lights!)
Contact: Bill Bourret
Fields: Outdoor Turf
Description: Year-round biweekly pickup game played under lights on UNC's outdoor Hooker Fields. We typically play Tuesday and Thursday evenings, starting around 9:00pm but sometimes earlier or later depending on conflicts. We are open to both students and the community and our games are free to play. Hooker Fields has brand new turf and lights as of Fall 2017!
Our coed games are semi-competitive: We play by rules, count stalls, and wear light/dark but do not run organized sets or plays. We do run hard and try to win, but never at the expense of player enjoyment. As such, we are open to all players regardless of skill level (though you should be able to run and catch a frisbee).
We organize games in our Facebook groups. Our main group is intended for fall/winter/spring when school is active: https://www.facebook.com/groups/frisbeedragons/
Our summer group can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/summerfrisbeedragons/
Occasionally we organize competitive games. Those are posted here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/komodoultimate
We use 'likes' as an informal RSVP system, but we typically have more participants than actual number of likes. The likes can be viewed as a minimum, though. Also note that the time listed is the time when people arrive and gather; we typically start playing about 20 minutes after the posted time.
What to bring: White & dark jerseys, cleats (or sneakers), and water! Hooker has running water and bathrooms at the south end of the complex.
Park in the School of Government deck directly east of the fields (free after 5:30pm). Meter spaces along the north end are free after 9:00pm. Info here: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=1V-W9OMU9iNIOziE9QsRZCGP9wPc&ll=35.90863050038931%2C-79.04410424999998&z=16
See you out on the fields!
