The 2nd annual FPA Auction will be held December 5-10. As you know, our membership structure consists of extremely low dues and the extremely rare auction items help augment these revenues. More guidance on the mechanics of the auction will be coming very soon. Save some of that Cyber Monday funds for this!!
Join me in congratulating (and thanking!) Thomas Nötzel as our new Competition Director! Also kudos to Jens Velasquez continuing as Education director! Lastly, the FPA Board would like to welcome Michał Maciołek as Member at Large, mainly helping Jakub, Jens and Jason in their efforts.
We are still tallying the final amount, in the meantime, we want to thank all who helped raise the funds for this year’s recipient!
And thank you to all who helped with translating the application into many of the languages that represent freestyle frisbee (Elad Kahalon, Benedicte Audet, Juan David Rivera, Kuba Opaluch, Toby Künzel)
Dear FPA Members and peeps,
We have very exciting news to share!
Since Edo and I started, one of our main goals was to build up the team of board members and the teams surrounding them in order to share the workload and gain more professionalism. Especially since we already have very skilled people in our community.
In the last year, it has not been easy to find the right person to entrust with the position of IT Director. However, now, we feel we have found the right fit. Today we proudly introduce that the FPA board has appointed Andre Zaharias as our new IT Director. Andre will be leading our current IT volunteers.
Andre lives in Munich and is a stable member of the jam community. He is a well known traveler and competitor at freestyle tournaments as well. But also important for us today, he is an IT specialist with project management skills. Andre is full of initiative and has already started leading the team.
Here’s the list of the current IT team: Andre – FPA IT Director and web developer Michal – server Larry – database Ryan – database, judging system, and ranking/rating Katy – database Mateusz – web developer Jonathan – web developer Oren – software architect
Big shout out to Andre and the whole IT team!
For those of you who would also like to contribute, the FPA still needs more support. We are especially in need of a Microsoft 365 Administrator. Feel free to reach out to us if you are interested.
Andre can be reached at email@example.com from now on.
Cheers, Freddy and Edo
