A Posting to the Online Ultimate Community

It is with deep sadness that I post this message, but I wanted to make sure folks knew….

Amir Lopatin, founder of the New York City Public Ultimate League and friend to countless, passed away last Friday afternoon. Amir was returning from Las Vegas to Stanford, where he had just begun a PhD program in education, when his car flipped in a freak accident.

I am sure many from Englewood, NJ (his hometown), Brown University, NYC, and most recently, Palo Alto/Stanford will want to express condolences; those interested can visit the website his family has set up at www.amirlopatin.com for contact information and to share stories or make a donation in his name.

May we all live our lives, let alone play this game, with the kind of spirit Amir embodied.
