WEEK IN REVIEW: The countdown to China Nationals 2011 is on

Jim came back! From Paganello/Europe with Nina. I can't believe I neglected to mention this earlier, but they played at the world-famous Paganello beach tournament in Italy a few weeks back with Doc and HHH. I'm sure it was fun. Will post pictures when I get them.


Yesterday was International Nurse Day, and at Kro's Nest trivia the servers dressed up as sluts nurses.

Oh, nurses.

A shout-out to Joe, by the way, for guest-hosting trivia last Thursday while Jim was gone.


Jeff Orcutt makes an appearance on the Big Brother listserv, 5/10. Judging by this email, there's no way anyone can tell he's been working on a political campaign.

Hey y'all,

I have not talked to the TDs about sending this email but wanted to make a personal appeal from afar.

As most of you know, China Nationals is a wonderful tournament that helps BB get ready for Shanghai. But at the same time, it represents the largest gathering of ultimate folks in China. This includes many students and Chinese professionals that are visiting their first tournament. It also represents the only tournament that many of them can attend.

As Tao already said the budget is very tight. After the sponsorships that make it possible for many of these students to attend are factored into the budget, the situation starts to affect Tao and Alicia's sleep.

If any of you can give donations to the tournament, in any amount, I know that they would be not only be greatly appreciated, but they would also give a chance for another Chinese student to have help with tourney fees, or transportation, or lodging.

Together, i hope we can all continue to show the Chinese Ultimate community how we roll and how we support this great group of folks.



P.S. Tell your friends!
