Below are their personal statements:

 

Jenny Gobin

I am running for the board because I want to continue to use this platform to advance ultimate within the state. I have helped run the East Windsor Indoor league, summer league, and coached the YCC Mixed team that Connecticut sent for the first time to the YCC Championships. I am passionate about the sport, as a player (UConn, Baywatch, and now Brute Squad - in addition to countless CUC leagues) and would love to focus on increasing women's and girl's participation in our leagues in years to come. I think a board position has allowed me to do that, and I hope to continue to do so.
 
I would appreciate your vote so that I can continue to give back to the CT ultimate community that has given me so much.

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.

Bryce Nakaoka

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.
