Hey all. Over the past two years, I've had the opportunity to be on the board, working to grow the sport of Ultimate in Connecticut. I hope to be reelected to keep up the work begun and to also explore new opportunities to communicate more widely the accomplishments of the board and the CT Ultimate community.
Hello, my name is Bryce Nakaoka and I am running for a CUC Board of Directors position. For those of you that don’t know who I am based on my strange last name, I’m that short guy that is always seen on the field with a red UNLV hat and runs around like a chicken that’s been Louis and Marie’d. I first started playing Ultimate in 2013 and have since been allowed to participate in as many CUC leagues as I can drive to. I have since become the organizer/coordinator/Facebook group admin/email list emailer of Groton Pickup (there’s pickup in Groton?!??!?! also, where’s Groton?) and have helped organize CUC’s North Branford Winter League in addition to the short lived Montville league, RIP.
As for why I’m asking for your vote, I would like to be able to contribute in a meaningful way to an organization that I love being a part of. While my talents and abilities are limited to feeding my face, writing horrible jokes in emails, and blowing through a 20ft long pipe for a living (refer to picture) I know my enthusiasm and work ethic can help CUC.
So when you go to the polling stations in November, remember: A vote for Bryce is a vote for . . . . rice I guess.
