Years ago, when I started playing with a lot of the local ultimate pick-up groups, I was surprised that so few knew that the others existed. And even though they all loved playing, no one wanted to go play with people they didn't know. So I decided to organize a tournament for the local groups to play each other and called it the "Capital District North Pick-up Mini-Tourney." It was a social event to get local players to meet each other, while still playing with those they know. It was a huge success and it's now an annual event that draws about 100 players every year. And not only that, once people met other local players, they started attending each other's games, bettering overall attendance, giving players more chances to play, and improving the general local ultimate frisbee community. The only downside it is no longer obvious who plays for which pick-up group at the tournament (the players/groups have to decide for themselves). Watch the video of the 2012 tournament.
