Ladies and gentlemen, here is your 7 on the line…ok technically it’s 11 but you get the idea. This summer after elections and natural selection this is the group of people who will be spending the next 2 years doing their best to serve you, the LAOUT community. This ragtag conglomeration of humans is here to make sure you have the opportunity to play as much ultimate as your bodies can handle.

Sonja has been “playing” Ultimate for about 16 years now and by “playing” we mean she shows up to games and plays with the puppies and babies while the rest of you actually play. She plans to spend her time on the board creating events that will help build a sense of community among players of all levels from beginners to elite. She hopes that LAOUT will be a place where everyone feels welcomed. “I mean, if y’all can put up with me you can deal with anyone.”
