I propose for competitions Circle, Shred 30, Sick 3, and TEN. Paul has the helm on this event, so if anyone needs anything please contact him.

If you want to know what TEN is watch this video http://www.footbag.org/gallery/show/10848 . TEN starts at time 9:31 and the video also provides the rules as well.

Sadly, I will not be there Friday night or Saturday until about 5 PM. Friday night I am seeing Spamalot with my fiance Julia. I bought the tickets months ago. Saturday my band is performing at a fraternity pig roast. I should be at Clark gym around 5 PM, maybe earlier depending on how long the band is asked to play.

Peace.

Of course I am coming, I wouldn't want to break my streak of GRASS attendances. :)

Paul, if you are really taking the helm then you need to step up a bit more with rooming and party details. We need more than some couches to sleep on!

Also, try to pull off some bar/restaurant that will let us shred there to keep the party pumping.

Stoked!

I hope nate pipenburgerberries comes!

I don't think we will be able to provide any lodging besides the hotel. My house is too far from RIT to be useful, anyway.

We will also check into securing somewhere to play late into the night.


Also, don't forget about the juggling show! Tickets are pretty inexpensive.

Does this mean I have to bail you out again? :P

Two options are probably doable Jordy, either get a ride with me and my juggling club or with your juggling club. I bet both are going. That is a total perk of having footbag events with juggling ones!


I am stoked to see all my east coast buddies!! You've all been there growing with me as we went from suck to shred. :)

That's a long list of hotels, Matt. Which ones would be ideal, locationwise? Anyone know?

It looks like I'll be up in Rochester this saturday and sunday, we shall discuss and plan and scheme further for all you people coming in from out of town.

You all can count on it being a seriously awesome weekend. please do not miss it

You can put one MC bag on the prize list. Who else is going to step up and stitch something?
