Hodag Love

Tuesday, December 02, 2008


Once again, it's time for the Hodag Love Scholarship for the new season. This annual scholarship is a $1,000 award open to anyone on the current team. In order to apply for the scholarship, you simply need to provide a story, video, joke, memento, etc. that shows what "Hodag Love" means to you or why you are proud to be a Hodag.


A few things are different than in years past. One, the alumni will decide on the winner at the Club Vegas tournament on January 24, 2009. I will be taking input from all alumni re: who should be this year's recipient. There is no set formula for choosing a winner, and in the case of dispute, I'm making the final call.

Two, the scholarship money has already been donated to the Hodag Trust Fund. In keeping with our new goal of setting up an endowment for the team, half of the money will be distributed to the winner and the other half will be kept in the fund. So the winner will get $500 to be used tourney fees, transportation, etc. Since this is coming out of the trust fund, receipts will be needed, and it has to be used for an ultimate-related purposed (No alcohol!).

Three, I know all of the alumni love reading and watching the various entries. No preference is given to years on the team, studs versus newbies, etc. So don't be discouraged from submitting an entry just because it's your first year on the team. (One caveat: Animal should be discouraged from submitting an entry because he's a tool.)

Four, all of the entries will be posted on the blog like in year's past. So if you can make it easy to post, I'd appreciate it.

If you guys have any questions, please let me know. If you want to look at last year's entries, just look at the older posts.
