Otherwise, it pains me to hear city council members' soundbytes on the radio where they specifically call into question (and propose cancelling or halting) the frisbee fields. Its such a good idea it is painful: the Ultimate community and the City are each putting up 1/2 the price (100K each) to design and build three lit ultimate frisbee fields (and near my house, no less). The city will retain possession of the fields, and be able to permit the fields to whoever they want. All Ultimate gets out of it is the existence of good in-the-city fields, and first priority in the permitting process. Talking at Zodiac from people in Rochester, Toronto, Ottawa, all with thriving Ultimate scenes, this is exactly what the city most needs because Ultimate people are the kind of demographic the city wants to retain. But no.
They still haven't completely laughed off the demands of financing and building the Penguins a new arena. Silly city.
