— RU Treasurer Nominations —

Our treasurer, Meeta Prakash, is about to head on a new adventure, so we’re going to elect our next treasurer at this week’s RU Board Meeting (6:30PM Thursday, May 18 @ One South Realty [2314 W Main St]).

Nominations are open until the meeting via an email to Be sure to copy your nominee on the email so we can get the election details to them (namely come to the meeting this Thursday!).

The treasurer is primarily focused on RU’s finances: reporting updates monthly and running all financial transactions. Further leadership and support of events is a welcome bonus 🙂

Nominees and those wanting to be nominated should come to the RU Board Meeting this Thursday. Email with any questions.

— PAL’s Volunteer Survey —

Richmond Ultimate Youth Outreach is partnering with Richmond’s Police Athletic League to teach and play some ultimate Frisbee during its summer camp. But we need volunteers to make this happen – you don’t need to be the best player, but should have a basic understanding of the rules and mechanics to pass along to the kiddos, and, of course, Spirit of the Game. The camp will be held at Henderson Middle School (4319 Old Brook Rd, Richmond) from June 26 through Aug. 16. We need volunteers on Tuesdays or Wednesdays from 2:30 to 3:30 and 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Please fill out the survey letting us know when you can help out:
