Event description

Description

Georgetown University’s Women's Ultimate Team is excited to announce our 2018 Book Dive Tournament! This is our program's 16th annual one-day fundraising tournament and charity book drive. Each year we raise crucial funds for our team to continue to play our beloved sport and we collect hundreds of book donations to be distributed to DC area charities!

This year we will be collecting new or gently used children's books for the Angel Tree Book Drive and new or gently used dictionaries (English, Spanish-English), world atlases, how-to-draw books, scientific magazines, how-to books, GED prep books, fiction novels (especially Westerns), and more for the DC Books to Prisons Project.

This year we’re excited to be hosting a disc drive to support Ultimate Peace (UP). Ultimate Peace is a NGO that aims to foster friendships between Arab and Jewish youth in Israel through the sport of ultimate frisbee. UP uses ultimate to teach its core five principles: mutual respect, friendship, non-violence, integrity, and fun. Programs include year-long programming, including a leadership-training initiative, as well as a summer camp.

We kindly ask that you bring discs in good condition to donate. They’ll be donated to UP, where they’ll be used in practices and tournaments. Many thanks, shukran jazeelan, and todah rabah!

If you have any questions regarding the disc drive for UP, please feel free to reach out to us at bookdive@gmail.com or to Paige, our team-member who suggested the disc-drive and has been involved with UP before, at psh40@georgetown.edu.

All are welcome –– bring an entire team or just yourself!

Also, our local pro ultimate team the DC Breeze has offered free tickets for their Home Opener in April 2019 to everyone on the team who wins the Spirit Award!

The bid fee is $20 (+ fees) per person (if playing individually) or $175 (+ fees) per team. You can register as an individual or a team! Additionally, breakfast (bagels, cream cheese, etc.) and lunch (mac 'n cheese) will be provided!

Please Note: This is a mixed tournament!


Registration closes November 16, 2018!
