OUA status for Frisbee?

Re: "Western's Frisbee Master," Mar. 28

To the Editor:

I would like to commend Alan Chute on his brutal honesty. It is hard for someone with his obvious gifts to share his true feelings with the world. Not only is Alan Chute a gifted Frisbee player (best at this school for five years no doubt), he is also a dedicated member of the community.

Although his words were a little blunt, his comparison to Jimmy Grozelle is about as accurate a comparison as is possible within the confines of Western athletics.

If ultimate were ever to become a varsity sport (as it should), Alan Chute would easily be an OUA all-star. The reason I felt it necessary to write this response is that Alan has been instrumental in my own Frisbee career, moulding me from an unco-ordinated bumbling fool, to a threat in the Ontario ultimate scene. Kudos to Alan Chute.

I would also like to send a shout out to Pat Pace, an excellent retired Frisbee player whose coaching skills are invaluable in the sport of ultimate; I know it was hard for him to retire from the game, but he finally saw it was necessary and that his time would be put to greater use coaching.
