To all our readers,

Ultiworld is not unique in the web publishing ecosystem. More and more, publishers — from small ones like Ultiworld to very large ones like the New York Times — have realized they cannot rely on advertising dollars alone. And in order to serve their communities, direct financial support from readers is necessary. Your subscription directly supports our writing, video, podcasts, streaming, and other coverage on everything from college to club to youth to international to disc golf. It means more than ever this year.

Thank you.

  15. Slow Burn: The Rise of Ring of Fire’s Next Generation

    Raleigh’s Ring of Fire has qualified for club nationals 23 consecutive years, advancing to 8 semifinals and 1 final, but they have never won a title.
