''For an introduction to the game of Ultimate, see [[Basics of Ultimate Frisbee]]''<br />
<br />
WUFO, the Williams Ultimate Frisbee Organization, is perhaps the largest student organization on campus. WUFO is a co-ed group (although it is subdivided into WUFO and La Wufa), is run by students, and includes a fall club season with A and B teams, a fall IM season, a spring break trip, and a spring college season with A and B teams.<br />
<br />
==Joining==<br />
<br />
A note to those interested in trying out Ultimate: nearly all of WUFO's members had no experience playing ultimate before coming to a WUFO practice. As an organization, WUFO prides itself on being accepting of new members of all levels, who join at any point during the year. If you are interested in frisbee, regardless of experience, [[#Contact|contact us]] or just stop down at [[Poker Flats]] most days at 4PM; we will be happy to introduce you to the sport all of us have fallen in love with.<br />
<br />
==Structure==<br />
<br />
Unlike NCAA run sports, Ultimate Frisbee is run by the UPA ([http://www.upa.org www.upa.org]) and all colleges compete in one large division broken into regions. As a result, Williams often finds itself competing against schools more than 10 times its size. Despite this, WUFO has had varied success over the years, most recently winning the West New England sectional tournament 2005 through 2007 and sending teams to Nationals in 2003, 2007, and 2009.<br />
<br />
In addition to sporting an A-team and 2 B-teams, WUFO members are often lifelong friends and frequently come back to visit one another and current Wufites. WUFO alums (or [[Kraftee|Kraftees]]) have gone on to play and coach many NE teams; most notable is WUFO's presence on DoG and Twisted Metal, two NE club teams who are both top 10 nationally.<br />
<br />
Every fall, WUFO holds the [http://ihuck.com/tiki-index.php?page=PurpleValleyHistory Purple Valley tournament].<br />
<br />
A unofficial but deeply entrenched part of the WUFO culture is the holding of creative theme parties. There is even an elected member of the WUFO board dedicated to planning these events, the Master/Mistress of Vice. Parties are typically not quite invite-only but not all-campus either.<br />
<br />
==Traditions==<br />
===Games===<br />
Sometimes, after or between games, teams will get together for group games related or unrelated to frisbee.<br />
<br />
===Cheers===<br />
It is a tradition to perform a team cheer before a game for the combined purposes of psyching yourself up, psyching your rivals out, setting the game mood, and showing off your own cleverness, coordination, or ridiculousness. Most of the cheers are funny, some are unsuitable for tournaments with families present, and some are reprinted below.<br />
<br />
*''El camino, el el camino<br>The front is like a car; the back is like a truck<br>El camino, el el camino<br>The front is where you drive; the back is where you<br>El camino, el el camino<br />
<br />
===Variations===<br />
The below variations on the rules of the game may be suggested by a player (usually by just shouting out the variation name when he thinks there will be general agreement) and may endure for one point or the rest of the game.<br />
<br />
'''Doob Point''' The next point can only be scored by a diving catch.<br />
<br />
'''Dinosaur Point''' Members of both teams must play the entire point with both arms fully extended (Pterodactyl team) or with both elbows fixed to the body (T-Rex team).<br />
<br />
===Mottos===<br />
<br />
*''Everything<--->Connects''<br />
*''Bonibusses (sic) are green,<br>Mountains are purple,<br>I like the dean,<br>But WUFO is psyched.''<br />
*''no hassle, no pain, no damage to the brain''<br />

<div>Help make room draw less stressful - let others know how big your group is and where you're looking to pick into.<br />
<br />
No intimidation of other groups (such as "if we don't get into Morgan third floor, we'll harass whoever lives there all year") is allowed; if you do that, you could get kicked to the end of the room draw. Also, don't post anything during the actual room draw or from the room draw locations, as that is also not allowed.<br />
Also, putting your class year rather than your class title (" '12 " rather than "senior") might make things clearer since the distinction between current sophomore and rising sophomore might make things a little muddy.<br />
