Jax Hat 2010

The annual hat draw ultimate tournament I help organize — Jax Hat —  is coming up in a couple weeks. This will be its sixth year.

There is a Jax Hat 2010 event page on Facebook with most of the details.

Jax Hat 2009

Mel and I had a little meeting today and the details seem to be coming together. We’ve got fields reserved. We have a lot of people signed up. We still have a good deal to do, but some things are best done in the last couple weeks.

Today, I went around to a bunch of  local restaurants — a few are offering specials or discounts for attendees.

We still buy music on CD

I didn’t have time to go to the EMI CD delete sale, but Julie did and she found some pretty good stuff, the Tibetan Freedom Concert and the latest from The Redwalls, The Thrills, The Ceasars, Turin Brakes, and OK, Go.


The main reason I didn’t have time Wednesday was because the ultimate team took a road trip to Bloomington-Normal to play against the Illinois State University and Illinois Wesleyan University teams. We left J’ville around 5 p.m., played two hour-long games, got some fast food, headed home, and got back to about 11:45 p.m.
