UDFC 50/50 – Draw Date July 31- The winner’s pot is already over $2000 !!!

The UDFC online 50/50 is underway. Our registration fees cover the cost of our programs. This 50/50 is a way for members to fundraise with the goal of reducing those fees for their family. The more tickets we sell, the bigger the pot and the easier it will be to sell tickets. Funds raised this summer can be used towards winter registration, clothing sold at the UDFC office and Summer 2020 registration fees. $0.41 from every dollar sold goes back to the member who sold the tickets.

Look for your email from Experience Fundraising and follow the directions to sell the tickets. Good luck!!

Poor Field Conditions? Call 3-1-1

If you think field conditions are poor on a specific field (holes, long grass, etc) you can call the city and issue a report. Call 3-1-1 and leave a detailed message or open a case file. In addition, you can also email the club at info@udfc.ca with photos and the case number given to you by the city and we can also follow up. The more reports they get about a field, the faster the city deals with the complaint.
