Welcome Kristopher Pickett!

2) Shenzhen: March 19 - 20

3) First annual India Hat Tournament will be hosted by AV Ultimate Feb. 4th-6th. The event will take place in the cozy community of Auroville and the closest airport to fly in to is Chennai, so look to Tiger Airways, Malaysia Airlines, or Indian Air for the lowest international fares. Air Asia also flies to Tiruchirappalli. As well, MakeMyTrip.com or Yatra.com can be used to find the best flight within India. Consult the website (http://www.auroville.org/society/ultimate.htm) for more information and please submit the registration form (on the left side of the website) on or before January 16th so all those interested can be accommodated. And any questions can be directed to AVultimate@scott.ms

4) The Boracay Open is set for this April 1st to April 3rd! There will be an Open tourney on the 1st, and a Mixed tournament the 2nd and 3rd. More details to follow; for now just save the date!

5) 12th Annual Bali Nusantara Cup is planned for next April 22/23, 2011. They say they have sweet grass fields and you know the beaches are awesome… Check the website (www.ultimateindonesia.com) for details and email elodieselves@hotmail.com with any comments or requests.

This newsletter was selected the "Google Groups Post of the Week" in http://beijingultimate.blogspot.com. And last week, a boozy trivia party apparently ended with someone getting blown to bits by a grenade: http://beijingultimate.blogspot.com/2011/01/weekend-roundup-boozy-trivia-party-at.html
