Some key points to take away from the above:

  • Our main income source has shifted from events to sales, thus creating more value for the community and placing less of a burden on the community (in the form of high tournament fees).
  • Our advertising spend has increased, expanding our player base, but also giving us more public visibility and getting more people talking about Ultimate.
  • We have donated more than 200% of what we donated last year 😀
  • Our financial position is strong, allowing us to fund disc imports and bankroll other projects.
